For many, prayer can seem boring, difficult, or even pointless. Julia Jeffress Sadler shares how God has a surprising life for you when you're bold enough to ask. Pray BIG Things!

Julia Jeffress Sadler: A wife of 10 1/2 years to Ryan and mother to their three miraculous triplets.

Julia is a licensed professional counselor, conference speaker, host of The Julia Sadler Show, Reality TV Star, and the Girls Ministry Director at The First Baptist Church of Dallas in Texas.

And somehow when she had a few breaths and breaks, Julia became an author of her brand new book, Pray Big Things: The Surprising Life God Has for You When You're Bold Enough to Ask.

"And because God is always doing something big, we can always be doing something big through prayers and through witnessing to other people.” ~ Julia Jeffress Sadler
