Moms today work so hard to get everything done. We feed everyone spiritually, as well as physically.  We try to make sure everyone is in the right place. . . spiritually, as well as physically. We want to make sure everyone's needs are met. Is it a tough job? Is it hard enough just to survive? YOU BET.

But where is God in this hustle and bustle?  Have we lost his presence?

This conference is for all busy moms, to meet us right where we are, to help us to remember that God is present here and now–in every moment of our motherhood.

"God, at his most vitally active and most incarnate, is not remote from us,. . , at every moment he awaits us in the activity, the work to be done, which every moment brings. He is, in a sense, at the point of my pen, my pick, my paint brush, my needle — and my heart and my thought. . ." Fr. Teilhard de Chardin Hymn of the Universe, 82-83.
