Our Parenting Group supports sharing realizations, challenges and hopes around the monthly Soulful Home theme with other supportive adults. This month’s questions revolve around a passage from Ann Lamott’s book Grace (eventually). She writes a lot from her perspective as a person of faith, a single parent, and a recovering addict. “A sober friend told me that while fear and confusion often swirl around us, faith is straight ahead: I trusted that even though I didn’t know a thing about taking care of infants, toddlers, kids, or teenagers, I would be shown the next right step on a need-to-know basis. I trusted that other parents would help me every step of the way, and that if I did not keep secrets when motherhood was going particularly badly, there would be healing and enough understanding and stamina to get by. And this has proven to be true.”

There’s a lot to reflect on here. What jumps out at you? Spend a few minutes bringing to mind other parents you’ve encountered along the way whose words, acts, or examples helped you. How did their presence help renew your faith in yourself as a parent?
