Loved this story! I plan to add a prayer box to our library. 

I am inspired by Tandi, the main character, who let God transform her life through the written prayers of Iola whom she did not think she met before. 

Resiliency is powerful. May I let God transform my life to a resiliency that never gives up and pushes me to carry out God's plans for my life. Selah.

Suggestion: Read Wingate's The Sea Glass Sisters then read The Prayer Box.

  • The Prayer Box was the first Lisa Wingate book I read. I not only loved the story, but the setting is familiar from visiting relatives in the Outer Banks. As you read more Wingate books, be sure to read "Before we were Yours' based on a true story. Keep a box of tissues handy. 

  • I love this book, I've read it many times. I suggested it for our church book club the ladies loved it. We even had a few make their own prayer boxes.
