ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 9, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- Nine Upstate New York mothers with forty-three children have written Mothering, An Art of the Heart, sharing their reflections from the empty nest. This honest, upbeat, heartfelt and personal look at the messy and wonderful business of raising children will appeal to mothers of all ages. It is a collection of short and engaging stories that celebrate family life.
Written by real mothers about real children, the book shares the perspectives of nine faith-filled Christian women, who have enjoyed professional careers in education, healthcare, art and ministry. Their children are grown, now with lives, professions and children of their own. The authors know from personal experience that the legacy of handing down parenting skills can be disrupted by distance, societal values, and the sheer busyness of schedules. They want to pass along to the next generation the "Mother Wisdom" that they learned from their mother, grandmothers and other moms, and from their own experience.
"The essays describe parents' doubt and fear, loss and acceptance, and show how a family, at its best, serves as a network of support and unconditional love." (Kirkus Reviews)
