The early church needed a lot of support. The new believers were easily swayed and when the community was faltering, the apostles sent some of their heavy hitters into the area to build them up. Think of your children as new believers. They too are just learning about the church and need lots of reinforcement.
One more thing: Moms need reinforcement too. When you feel yourself getting a little lax, spend some time in adoration or daily mass. Jesus will bolster you up and give you the strength you need to forge ahead. Surround yourself with friends who are also friends with Christ. As the psalm says, "Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your kingdom."
Prayer: Dear Lord, Help me to prioritize my time so that I am spending time with you each day. Give me friends who are friends with you, and help us to support one another in teaching our children about you. St. Florian, pray for me. Amen.
