You know when you meet someone and you just instantly feel that “click”? You just kind of “get” them and it feels like they “get” you too?
Well, that’s how I feel about my friend Sarah from Clover Lane. “Have I met her?” you may ask, and my answer is “no”…at least not in person. But I feel like I have because she’s just so darn down-to-earth and good and easy-going. It shines through so fully in her blog and through e-mails. We “met” through blogging and she is one of those people that just makes you wish you could be their neighbor.
Sarah has come up with the coolest idea: to interview mothers of different faiths and ask them questions about how their religious convictions help them to mother. She explains her purpose much better than I can:
“We are all more similar than we are different.
“Different doctrines, different traditions, different rituals, different beliefs, but our fears,
our love for our families, and our hopes for our children are all so alike.“
Well, she asked me for an interview about my religion and I was honored to comply.

I have to say that as I pondered over these questions I became even more thankful to have beliefs that I can rely on and faith to carry me through the tough stuff life throws out. I’m thankful to have guidance to help raise my family. And to feel the love of God in my life so regularly.
Sarah is right, no matter what religion we are part of, we as mothers are so much alike…we want to instill in our children all the goodness we can and help them maneuver through life happily.
Thanks, Sarah, for helping to point that out.
