30 - How Mothers Put Children First | Lifegiving Spring Theotokos Icon | Bright Friday Reading from John

Have you ever noticed how devoted your wife is to your children? She goes about her day (either as a stay-at-home mother or working mother) and tirelessly gives to you and the children. If she stays at home, she tends to the kids just about 24/7. If she works outside the home, she likely works 8+ hours and then comes home-- and then takes care of the kids and housework. Moms just keep going because they know it's needed.

We need to support that as their husbands, which I discussed in episode 18 (https://bit.ly/dd-18). But, perhaps more importantly, we need to support their time with God. That's the message from today's episode. Check out the article, "The Role of the Mother in Raising Children," mentioned at https://saintkosmas.com/st-paisios-the-role-of-the-mother-in-raising-children as well as the "Theotokos of the Life-giving Spring" article from https://www.goarch.org/chapel/saints?contentid=850&type=saints. Read the Bright Friday Gospel from John at https://www.oca.org/readings/daily/2020/04/24/2.

Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!
