Brief description:

My life is very ordinary – how do I bring out God’s merciful love in my busy life? This was a question that plagued Ailey, a mother of two boys with ADHD. Her life was filled with challenges, but she understood her duty to lead her sons on the right path to God, bringing them to church and instilling a strong awareness of God’s presence. Once while driving lost, her younger son guided her back onto the correct route. When her older son became rebellious, she learned of a private military school that formed him into a disciplined young man. And when he struggled with his learning disability while applying for university, the kindness of an admissions secretary saw him through. God performs His will through the vicissitudes of life.

Brief description:

When St. John Bosco was a child, his mother Margherita taught him an important lesson: think things carefully before acting. Once, John Bosco stood on a chair to grab a wooden ball on top of the kitchen cabinet. However, it is too tall for him and after a clumsy grab, he accidentally shatters a bottle of oil. He tries to mop up the mess but his efforts only strengthen the oily scent. He is mortified – not because he will be yelled at by his mother, but because of the suffering he will cause her. When Margherita returns home, he has already cut a cane with his pen-knife and dejectedly asks her to beat him with it. Knowing that her son had not broken the bottle on purpose, Margherita forgives him but warns him to think before acting. In another incident, John Bosco was looking after turkeys with his brother Giuseppe. Noticing the young boys and thinking they would be easy to trick, a man asked to buy a turkey for five soldi. Ecstatic to see so much money, the two boys agree and proudly tell their mother about the exchange. On hearing this, Margherita bursts into laughter, as a turkey was worth at least 4.5 lira, 18 times their selling price! Ashamed, John Bosco and Giuseppe try to find the man to no avail. On returning, Margherita scolds them for abandoning the other turkeys in their haste and for foolishly trying to confront the fraudster. Again, Margherita imparted a valuable teaching which allowed John Bosco to avoid many unfortunate incidents and even offending God as an adult.
