It is so easy and so normal to feel burnt-out, resentful, anxious and alone. Sometimes our feelings overshadow all of the beautiful and sweet experiences of motherhood. How can we possible find fulfillment in the daily grind of being a mom? How could this ever be a vocation or my path to happiness?
Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church invites moms to attend an awesome eight-week study on the vocation of motherhood, facilitated by two Moms in the parish. The video study features a group of well-known Catholic speakers and writers talking about their own challenges in embracing both the beauty and monotony of life as a Catholic mother. The eight-week session will be held in the Church (gathering room) and is open to moms of all ages.
