Looking for practicing Catholics, writers of every level & mothers of every kind to participate in this special project: a collection of stories of motherhood & faith inspired by the mysteries of the rosary & their accompanying spiritual fruit.
The big joke is that women like to talk. I always roll my eyes when I hear this but, if I’m being honest there is little more enjoyable to me than a good conversation with a friend over coffee! Jesus knew this about women & understood how valuable of an asset our speaking out is for his Kingdom. The resurrected Christ even chose to appear first to a woman: Mary Magdalene who ran to tell the disciples “I have seen the Lord!” There is a reason why we’re known for speaking out: God made us this way to reflect part of himself! He imbued the woman’s soul with the ability to receive, preserve & deliver his truth with a passion, wisdom & loving conviction that is uniquely feminine. Let’s face & embrace it, Sisters: We were made to get the word out!
All mothers are eligible & encouraged to submit as our desire is to showcase as many variations of this multifaceted vocation as possible. Here at MtM we want the world to know that there is more than one way to be a mother. We believe that physical mothers, spiritual mothers, grandmothers, adoptive mothers, loss mothers, single mothers, moms of many, foster mothers, working mothers, moms of blended families, special needs moms, step mothers, those praying for a baby & those who work with or care for children all have unique & valuable stories to tell. We look to Mary Mother of God as our patroness & call out all women to embrace the motherly attributes God placed in every female soul. If an experience of motherhood has deepened your faith we want to hear from you!
