Navigating Marriage after Baby

Simcha Fisher - published on 07/10/14

Becoming a parent both deepens and complicates your relationship with God. There ought to be a trophy for surviving Mass with an infant in tow. But if you do get to hear some of the Scripture readings, be prepared to hear them with new ears. God as tender father; the Church as merciful mother; Christ as the one who gives up his body because of love — suddenly these mean so much more when you’re a parent yourself. Maintaining a spiritual life while raising a child is parenthood in a nutshell: it’s hard, complicated, tiring, sometimes frustrating and confusing — but rich, deep, profound beyond measure.

Read the rest in my article, Navigating Marriage After Baby, in the latest issue of Our Sunday Visitor.
