1. Mother's Day Articles
A collection of articles honoring mothers, discussing the journey and experiences of women and celebrating the joyful parts of parenthood! Articles addressing infertility, Mother Eve and the role of women in the world, The Church and our homes are included, along with tributes to MOMS everywhere!
2. To My Sisters Who Want To Be Mothers
The day that celebrates mothers with joy is a sorrow for those of us who'd give anything to fill that role but can't. Here's a message of love from someone who has been there.
3. Peanut Butter Cookies
This recipe has become my favorite cookie. No flour means the peanut butter flavor is strong (and makes it friendly for those who are in a conflict with gluten), and will fill tummies and satisfy tastebuds of cookie lovers everywhere!
4. Rethinking Romantic Love
How is it that those who "fall in love" seem so often to "fall out" of it again? There may be something wonky in our idea of romace and love in the first place.
5. Heavenly Parenting On Earth
All of life is a learning experience. One of the lessons I've learned since becoming a mother is a pleasant surprise--that as much as I love my children, Heavenly Father loves them (and me) even more!
6. To My Mother
Mother's Day is different for me than Hallmark makes it for many moms. After years of polite smiling,skirting my true feelings,I honor my Mom with the only thing I can give her now: the truth about her gifts to me, our lasting connection, and my deep joy and sorrow as I mother her grandchildren.
7. Eve And the Choice Made In Eden - Book Review
Beverly Campbell's book eloquently and lovingly unravels the false image we have of Mother Eve and the Fall. She provides new understanding of these events, reclaiming Eve's damaged reputation, and giving joyful insight into the role and worth of all women.
8. Letting Our Kids Remind Us What's Possible
Ever heard a five year old refuse to dance because she has no rhythm, or a three year old protest that his chances of being accepted into NASA and ever being a "spaceman" are impossibly slim? Parenthood gives us the chance to revisit those "impossible dreams" and jump back into the new and scary.
9. A Tribute to Eve (And My Own Mother Too!)
It is too easy to underestimate Mother Eve...and our own earthly mothers. All women who become mothers travel a path that echoes her journey. Let's reexamine their choices and our own.
10. Parenting : See the Joy Instead of the Chaos
Sometimes it's easy to become more focused on keeping life neat and orderly than on allowing our kids to be kids. We forget that those things that take us out of our way aren't beside the point; they ARE the point!
