Brooke knows what it’s like to want to wave the white flag and just give up the fight for the hearts of her sons. But God has called mothers to get in the battle. So how do we do that in the most effective way?

By coming alongside them in prayer.
The Praying for Boys book will:
  • Help you stop hovering, and start covering.
  • Give you permission to wave the white flag, while empowering you with the tools you need to keep going.
  • Help you recognize your value and power as a praying mom.
  • Overcome feelings of failure, and walk in confidence as a mom.
What will you find in Praying for Boys?
  • A new, enhanced view of why praying for boys is so important.
  • A deeper understanding of what prayer is and why we should do it.
  • An entire chapter devoted to moms going it alone, with practical applications for both the physically and spiritually single mom.
  • Over 200 topically-organized, Scripture-based prayer prompts for 21 areas in which boys struggle the most.
  • A guided 21-day prayer challenge for moms to pray with other moms and encourage each other, in person or online.
From fun boy mom humor, to insightful biblical wisdom, Brooke helps mothers of boys discover their value and power as praying moms.
  • Instead of hovering, we can provide prayer covering, empowering our boys with our prayers.
  • When they’re still too young to guard their own hearts, we can do it for them through our prayers.
  • When they’re older and making their own decisions, we can give our sons confidence to boldly embrace life, knowing mama is prayerfully protecting every step.
  • When we can’t control their behavior, we can help shape their heart with our prayers
