"Whoever Loves me
will keep my word"

John 14:23

St. Joseph Catholic Church

Mother's Day Reflections
We are celebrating Mothers in the month of May.

Beth Kraft

"Motherhood has helped me understand and enrich my capacity for unconditional love. As my children matured, I felt it was my responsibility to guide them to become independent, kind and faith-filled adults. Only later through my own faith journey have I been able to accept that all of our lives are what God has planned for us and I need to trust in His plan unconditionally."
Carrie Groth

"The greatest gift of motherhood is savoring all moments big and small, all ages and all stages, the good times and bad, the trials and the tribulations, the laughter and the tears, all while being a witness to what carries them through these moments- the love of God, family, and friends. As a mom, what you sow is what you reap, with that everyday is better than the last and the joy of parenting has no end in sight! Our children have opened up a window in my heart and God’s light has poured in through them!"
