HAVING LEFT A CAREER in international business to be a stay-at-home mom when my second child came along, I was used to having sales targets and goals by which to measure my progress. And in my new role as a full-time household manager and mother, performance reviews and charts were not part of the deal!
But during this time, a particular quotation served as a sort of mission statement. It was from Science and Health, written by Mary Baker Eddy, who was a mother, among other distinctions: "What we most need is the prayer of fervent desire for growth in grace, expressed in patience, meekness, love, and good deeds" (p. 4 ). For me, these words perfectly described the qualities that a mother most needs.
