About this product
- DescriptionNine moms with forty-three children share their reflections from the empty nest... Mothering: An Art of the Heart is an honest, upbeat, heartfelt and personal look at the messy and wonderful business of raising children. It is a collection of short and engaging stories that celebrate family life, written by real mothers about real children. The nine moms are professional women with careers in education, health care, art and ministry. Their children are grown -- w with lives and professions and children of their own. In their reflections from the empty nest, the authors see that the legacy of handing down parenting skills can be disrupted in this day and age by distance, societal values and the sheer busyness of life schedules. The intention of this book is to pass along to the next generation the Mother Wisdom that the authors learned from their mothers, grandmothers, other moms and from their own experience. But this is t simply a collective memoir for their own children: in telling their stories, they hope to inspire all mothers, from brand-new moms to empty-nesters, to recognize their profound value and influence in nurturing strong, healthy families.
