ADVENTIST WORLD — Adventist families celebrating Mother’s Day are praising their mothers for the selfless, unending work they do year after year as they patiently train up their children … and their husbands in the way they should go.”
Adventist moms are superheros,” said Adventist Lifestyle expert, Paz Ciencia. “They are somehow able to get their kids and husbands to pick up after themselves, flush, eat their veggies and get to church on time week after week — all without so much as breaking a Sabbath sweat.”
Speaking to Adventist reporters, Ciencia made a point of emphasizing how much work it can be to pull off even the simplest of miracles in Adventist families.
“Don’t for one second think that an Adventist family that arrives in coordinated church outfits comes looking that way straight out of the box,” said Ciencia. “It takes frantic Friday afternoon activity to make sure your kids aren’t going to look like a circus act as they walk into Cradle Roll and that your impossibly color-blind husband is carefully coached to avoid Sabbath shirt and tie combos that double as optical illusions.
