Great negotiation skills
If you look throughout Church history, you'll note that many early saints founded new monasteries and convents after much discussion with the local bishop. That takes some negotiation skill! Many of these saints were women, like Sts. Brigid and Cera of Ireland. Moms these days might feel exhausted by all the daily negotiations that take place with their kids or at work, but they can look to these formidable saints who wouldn't take no for an answer.
