About this Episode

Even on normal years Mother’s Day can be a complicated holiday, ripe with expectations and multiple obligations to balance. In this episode we get curious about our own expectations going into this holiday and we get clearer about what this unique Mother’s Day could look like for all of us.

*Discussion Questions: *

  1. What have you learned about yourself and your expectations over the years of celebrating Mother’s Day? Or if this is your first Mother’s Day, have you been honest with yourself about your expectations for Mother’s Day?
  2. What do you find yourself hoping for in a celebration this year?
  3. What is one way that you can ensure you have a honoring celebration, keeping in mind what you can control, and what you cannot?
  4. Write a prayer to God about what mothering in this season of life is like. What are you grateful for? What do you need help with?
