The Desert Mothers

Spiritual Practices from the Women of the Wilderness
  • By Mary C. Earle
Product Description

A historical and enlightening introduction to Desert Mothers and the wise spiritual lessons we can glean from their lives, trials and tribulations, and writings.

At the dawn of Christianity, holy women went into the wilderness of the desert of Northern Egypt to give themselves totally to lives of prayer. Explore the unique spirituality of Desert Mothers, and learn ways to apply their wisdom today.

"The Desert Mothers are often overshadowed by the better-known Desert Fathers, but these women who went into the wilderness to pursue deep prayer deserve to be heard. Mary Earle has taken nine concise sayings from Desert Mothers and explore them in original ways."--Frederica Mathewes-Green, author, columnist, and speaker

"Mary Earle is a modern-day Desert Mother, and we are fortunate, indeed, for her introduction to Desert Amma's ancient wisdom, and for her gentle guidance on ways to incorporate that wisdom into contemporary spiritual practices."--Debra K. Farrington, author of Hearing with the Heart: A Gentle Guide to Discerning God's Will for Your Life
