Families are important to Tamyra Horst who believes the home is the most important “mission field” we each impact. She’s written the books, “Praying Like Crazy for Your Kids” and “Praying Like Crazy for Your Husband,” from her own passion and experience as a mom and wife, intentionally praying for her family. “Ratty Bathrobes, Cranky Kids, and Other Romantic Moments” was written from her commitment to making time for your relationship with your spouse. She longs to see families of all shapes and sizes–large, small, single parents, two parents, step-families, singles, children, grandchildren, grandparents raising grandkids, etc.–experience deepening relationships with each other and with God.
