St. Elizabeth Ann Seton - when you're overwhelmed
A mother of five, America's first home-grown saint is an ideal patron for any homeschooling parent. She schooled her own children at home while seeing to the needs of orphans, starting schools, and nurturing a new religious order. The demands and trials of her life were plenty, but she approached it all with a surrender to God's will, always asking for grace in her challenges.
