“Motherhood lives in holy tension, where our greatest strengths meet our greatest weakness and where we are most human and broken and most divine. We lose our sense of self to find ourselves. We experience the greatest love and the greatest heartbreak. We experience great awe and profound boredom—often within minutes of each other! Motherhood’s constant paradox creates a deep potential for holiness.”*
To mothers everywhere, The Upper Room wishes you a very
Happy Mother’s Day!
And we celebrate the “deep potential for holiness” that motherhood brings.
May your day be blessed as you celebrate the incredible gift of being a mother.
Celebrate your mom and her legacy of faith by making a gift to The Upper Room in her honor or memory.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
