5 Inspiring Quotes for Mothers {Taken from Catholic Saints}


I’m sure most, if not all, moms will agree with me when I say that motherhood can be full of ups and downs, twists and turns, triumphs and trials — all of which can sometimes happen in the span of just one day! (Right? Right. 😉 )

In fact, as a work-at-home, homeschooling mom of three with one more on the way, I know that there are times when I need some inspiration to get me through the day — and I know a lot of you moms out there probably feel the same way, too. (Please oh please tell me I’m not the only one!)

With this in mind, I decided to gather together some encouraging quotes from a few of my favorite saints, in the hopes that this collection will give you (and me!) the “boost” you (and I!) need to keep on “mothering on”:
