Just One Small Thing: Everyday Wisdom for Catholic Women

Nov 14, 2017

It often feels like I am on an endless (and fruitless) quest to make my life at home raising kids just a little bit better.  Maybe if we stayed home more...or went out more...or had better toys, or fewer toys.

This sort of searching leads to an awful restlessness and discontentedness.  

For this very reason I was given so much peace by this simple idea shared in my woman's Bible Study: This Side of Heaven, Things Are Just Going to Be Hard.

Yes we should endure to always be better.  Yes we should prayerfully and thoughtfully consider what is best for our kids...but chasing after some sort of ideal is not only fruitless, but can also lead to discouragement.

So, take peace and live as well as you can, knowing that you and your children were not made for this world, but for the next.
