At times being a mom helps me be more spiritual, but at other times I sometimes feel that it tests my spirituality. (Generally at the same time that my children are testing my patience.) Today we stayed home from church thanks to a cold the whole family caught. At first I was really bummed because I felt my Sunday was ruined, but then I thought of an article my good friend, Lina, sent me. The article, “Spiritual Growth for Young Mothers,” was a good reminder to me that just because I’m not always able to attend or listen to church meetings doesn’t mean I can’t be a spiritual person. In reality, the only stumbling block to my spirituality isn’t my children, but my attitude.
