"You will be a better mom because you are a theologian, and a better theologian because you are a mom."

Is it true? In this blog, I explore the interplay and intersection of motherhood and theologianhood.

Maia's Recent Pencil Drawing

Here's some recent artwork from the desk of six-year old Maia. After a conversation with her, I can summarize what's happening in this picture. The kneeling girl is in her bedroom. She is praying to God and asking St. Anthony of Padua to help her find her missing hat. Above her door is an image of the crucifixion, with Jesus on the cross and a Roman soldier on either side, John and BVM to the left, the other Marys to the right. On her wall hangs a three linked pictures of two saints (can't remember which ones), and St. Michael the Archangel. Above her bed is a picture of the pope and her Rosaries hanging on hooks. The sun is in the window above her bed.

And good news - her mom found her hat and is throwing it into the room! Thank you, Saint Anthony!!!

That girl in the picture must be one pious kid. Imagine if we put prie dieus in our kids' bedrooms! You don't suppose Maia is hinting that she'd like one...
