About the Book
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.

Hopkins continued to write poems thereafter, while serving as a priest and university teacher, but he burned most of his early poems out of a deep sense of conflict between his art and his faith, and he published very little in his lifetime.''''God's Grandeur'''' appeared in the first collection of his poems, edited by his friend Robert Bridges and published in 1918, long after the poet's death in 1889.
