As we reflect on theme of charity today with the Small Steps Tour, we thought we'd take a moment to also highlight some of the humorous ways moms grab five minutes.
Today, meet Haley.
For many of us moms, the fact that charity starts at home is a hard reality. And a messy one. From art projects to cooking helpers, from laundry piles to dingy stinkies, from wiping bodies to collapsing in bed, we embody love of others in a way that we often overlook. Do we turn to God in those times of chaos?
As Haley shares about a day in her life with three kids under age 5, I can't help but think that love of neighbor is rooted in how I treat my kids. They get under my skin like no one else, they push my buttons, and they kiss me better than anyone else, too.
We're called to love and to give, and as moms, that's something we already do a lot. Good job, you!
