Young Mothers at Prayer:
What is Your Advice for Them?

Young mothers at prayer: I had the opportunity to offer several talks on the spiritual life to a wonderful group of new friends in Idaho last night. One of the young women who has been deeply blessed by God with a large family asked me a question that I thought I would pass along to you – particularly you young mothers out there. What practical tips for prayer might you offer a mom with a sizable clan ranging from nine down to a beautiful newborn? Have you navigated the unique challenges of motherhood while still nurturing a meaningful prayer life? It is clear she is a great mom and that her children are blessed to have her as their mother but the challenges of an energetic group of little ones are not small in any way. Your thoughts or words of encouragement?
