Submission Deadline: May 31st, 2020

(If you’ve already written a story that is no longer available please still submit! We want to help you  share your stories in the future.)
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!

If you’re ready to join the mission & share your story please read the Storyteller’s Guidelines here

We’re also looking for talented photographers & artists to add visual interest to our story & social media posts. All work will be credited to you & linked to your social media accounts/sites/shops!

When you are ready to submit send your story with head shot & short bio to our email: motherhoodthroughthemysteries@gmail.com

The new deadline for the first collection of stories is May 31st 2020.
