Can I Laugh On Your Shoulder?

Oct 4, 2023

Today I’m so excited to be joined by the remarkable Sharon Jaynes, a renowned international speaker and best-selling author of 26 books with nearly 1 million copies sold. She's a prominent voice in the global faith community, having served as the former Vice President of Proverbs 31 Ministries and co-host of their radio program.

Sharon's latest book, "Praying for Your Child from Head to Toe," is a 30-day guide to praying purposely over your children. In this conversation, we explore how parents, grandparents, and anyone invested in a child's life can use the words of scripture to pray with intention and impact.

Join us as Sharon walks through 16 distinct areas of prayer, offering a heartfelt pattern for praying over the people you love, from the crown of their heads to the soles of their feet. This discussion touched my heart profoundly, and I pray it will do the same for you!
