Welcome to the last episode of our first season! If you are reading and listening along in real time, then you know that my first book, This Life That Is Ours: Motherhood As Spiritual Practice, comes out in April 2019. After this episode I am pivoting to market the book for the next few months. And what better way to mark the transition than through a conversation about motherhood as spiritual practice with one of my writing heroes?
Barbara Mahany is the most beautiful, honest, inviting, and holy writer on motherhood that I have encountered. She is the author of three books, including Motherprayer. I was delighted to be joined by her for a conversation about, as she describes it, the holiest curriculum she has encountered, a school where she learns every days how to live out the commandment to love as you would be loved. We explore what we have both learned through the holy curriculum of motherhood, and how writing about our lives as moms has helped us to hear the still, small voice within the chaos.
This conversation was pure gift for me, and I hope it will be for you, too. Thank you for sharing the road with me on this first season of Life As Spiritual Practice!
