That comment in a presentation from Relevant Radio's Drew Mariani really stood out to me at a Divine Mercy conference last Saturday. I worry all the time. But you wouldn't know it because I'm an introvert and I hide it well! Spending less time worrying and more time praying sounds like a much better path.
I always joke that cry rooms need their own cry rooms so that the loudest and most chaotic kids have an even more secluded place to go while the rest of us try to have at least some standard of quietness and decorum in the main cry room.
