Honoring Motherhood

Prayers, Ceremonies and Blessings
  • Edited by Lynn L. Caruso
Product Description

Connect with the birth, growth, change, joy, love and inner strength of mothering.

Take a spiritual voyage through blessings, prayers, anecdotes and meditations about the sacred undertaking that is motherhood. These words of hope and healing, pain and promise, are for all mothers--traditional, single, adoptive, foster, step and bereaved--and are drawn from many faith traditions, including Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim and Native American.

Special multifaith ceremonies offer ways to honor many aspects of motherhood, such as: becoming a new mother, either through birth or adoption; welcoming children into the larger community; and acknowledging the experience of weaning a child.

Insightful and wise, the expressions in this soulful collection illustrate the paradox of motherhood and will speak to your heart as you see motherhood in a whole new--and holy--way.

Contributions stem from both ancient and contemporary sources, and many contributions were written specifically for this book.
