"Nine 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 -- now 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 not 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.
I loved the book. Ordered 5 more to give as gifts to special mothers that I know. The women that wrote the book are real mothers who have dealt with many of the same situations that all mothers have. It good to know that were not out there alone. Every mother will find a connection with something in the book.
THis book touched my heart and the other people that I gave it to as a gift for Christmas loved it too!! It brought back many happy memories of our children growing up and the experiences they also had with their children,, our grandchildren..
Mothering, An Art of the Heart is a collection of short stories that make easy reading for busy Mom's. Chapter titles are helpful. New Mom's to elderly Mom's would enjoy reflecting on their own stories of mothering as these stories "prime the pump" of memories!
