Simple Grace caught up with motivational speaker, Bible teacher and author Barb Roose to ask her our favorite question. Here, she explains how taking time for "mini check-ins" with God help enhance her prayer life:
“Whenever I find myself overly stressed or busy, I try to take a moment to do a little check-in and invite God into every action, thought and attitude I’ve had recently and ask Him about them,” says Barb. “I’ll pray, Where have I left You out, Lord? What worries can You eliminate? Then I’ll sit quietly with a notebook and wait for Him to respond. He’ll use memories or impressions instead of words, but it never fails to ease my stress and help get me back on spiritual track!”
