And how both can strengthen our daily lives.

As most parents will attest to, being a mom and dad is full of interesting experiences and emotions. Recently, when I was considering my Catholic faith and my role as a mom, I found some interesting similarities that provide a little motivation and strength to try and be both a better mom and Catholic!

So take a look at the slideshow to see some of the likenesses I found; hopefully they can be a source of comfort. And if you have others, please share with us in the comments section.
