I'm a mother of 6 Children. 5 Are with us one is in heaven waiting for us. I also married my high school sweetheart. We met when I was 15 he was 17. Waited 6 years to get married. The best gift he gave me was an introduction to the Catholic church. I had been to mant churches before. I was raised Church of the Brethren, But as I child I had way too many questions that none of the adults around me were able to answer. Then I met my husband. I learned a lot from his mother and aunts. From them I Learned to try to be like Mary the perfect mother and wife. Form my husband I learned we should listen closely to Christs words and Love one another. I have learned in recent years that a summisive wife is not a weak women but stronger in letting her husband lead the family, with her gentle suggestions when he could be wrong.
