Our relationships with our moms can be complex, layered, and complicated – but psychology tells us that it’s one of the most important and foundational connections we have, and it has major implications for everything from how we manage stress to how optimistic and confident we are. Even Jesus, God made flesh, had a deeply complex relationship with his mom, Mary. Yet throughout the Gospels, we see how he navigated both loving and honoring her, and staying obedient to the ultimate purpose to which he was called.
