Brief History of Moms In Touch International -
In the fall of 1984, founder, Fern Nichols' two oldest children (of four) were entering junior high school. Her heart was heavy and burdened with concern as she knew they would be facing their greatest test in resisting immoral values, vulgar language, peer pressure and philosophies that would undermine their faith. She cried out to the Lord asking Him to protect them, enable them to see clearly the difference between right and wrong, and make good decisions. More>

In Starting this Group . . . .
- Pray that God brings other moms who will be willing to meet with us every other week for prayer. In faith, ask a mom to come along with you to pray for your child and his/her school.
- Make a list of prospective moms and ask them to join your prayer time.
- Follow the Moms In Touch International (MITI) guidelines and format for prayer time.
- Make sure you are controlled by the Holy Spirit. Trust God for answers to prayer, focus on Him, and expect great things to happen.
- We encourage you to order a Moms In Touch booklet. The booklet contains important and useful information for starting a group:
- Scriptures to pray for your children
- How to encourage school staff and administration.
- How to pray conversationally with "one accord" praying.

Come as you are.
Be faithful in meeting for one hour on a weekly basis. Make this hour a solid commitment to pray.
Start and finish on time. If some moms would care to stay longer for fellowship and sharing, do so following the prayer time.
Do not serve refreshments. This could be a distraction for your group and an unnecessary burden for the hostess.
