1984

The burden to intercede for her boys was overwhelming and so she asked God to give her another mom who felt the same way – a mom who would be willing to pray with her for their children and school. God heard the cry of her heart and led her to another mom who shared her burden. Others were invited to come, and they began meeting to pray the following week. This was the beginning of Moms In Touch, now called Moms in Prayer International. As moms began sharing the work of God in their lives and in the lives of their children, more groups began to spring up in the area to pray for children across British Columbia.

1985

In the summer of 1985, Fern’s family moved from Abbotsford, British Columbia to Poway, California. She soon discovered that God had provided her an even greater opportunity for carrying on the work that began in Canada. Once again she prayed fervently that God would raise up moms who were willing to “stand in the gap” for their children. That fall, Fern began the first Moms In Touch/Moms in Prayer group for Poway High School and soon, just as before, God began moving in their community and other groups began to form for schools in that district. This grassroots effort spread quickly as moms prayed specifically for groups to spring up around the state and across the nation.

1987

In the fall of 1987, Moms in Prayer published the first Ministry Booklet and, in January of 1988, the first ministry retreat was held. At the first retreat, 35 women prayed for national exposure and God faithfully answered their prayers just a few months later when Fern received a call from a producer at Focus on the Family. That May she and twelve other moms were on the air talking to Dr. James Dobson! This first radio program generated more than 20,000 responses.
