When we pray to the Lord, we are comforted, knowing that He hears our prayers. But Tracy Wilson Mourning, founder of the Honey Shine Mentoring Program, challenges believers to do more than go to God with our problems, our thoughts, our hopes, and our dreams. She challenges us to listen with our hearts to what the Lord wants us to do.
Listening is what the wife of famed basketball star Alonzo “Zo” Mourning says she was doing when God placed a mandate on her to start a charity that would cater to the needs of young women in a very unique way. After some soul searching and a few brainstorming sessions with her girlfriends, Mourning says she felt as though the Lord whispered in her ear, and she just happened to be listening at the time.
