Elizabeth Foss Article

by | Oct 23, 2007 | Personal Reflections | 1 comment

I really love reading anything by Elizabeth Foss. She constantly gives encouragement, inspiration and awesome ideas to help in both daily life and homeschooling. Yesterday, Catholic Exchange posted an article by her titled Taking Note of Change. In it she says:

As a Christian community, as women who are called to nurture families, I think it critical that we watch for times of stress and change in the lives of our friends and that we take special care to treat them with love and with grace, much the way we would treat a mother after birth. Women need other women — they need the compassion and the empathy of creatures designed to nurture. We can be for each other the tender midwife who helps a mother welcome a strange, new life.

As mothers we are constantly going through different phases in our lives. It is so nice to know that you have the support and love of other friends and relatives. I have so many dear friends that are always there for me. I hope that I have been there for my friends when God has presented me with the opportunities. You can read the whole article here.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
