I came here because I am a relatively new convert, at just about 2 years.
I have to admit I am really, truly struggling. I am a busy mom with 7 children, and husband with sleep apnea. One of children is special needs and her issues are about to wipe us out financially- even though my dh makes a modest income. No parent can prepare for this sort of thing. I am alone and struggling, we don't have a full time priest and our parish is very very aged.
How can I not be discouraged? Please say a prayer that I find some peace and healing, and soon. My kids need me.
