More on Motherhood

Thinking more about my yesterday post and comment interchange--here's a reprint of the fantastic Nantucket Today magazine article in which I scandalously refer to motherhood as a spiritual calling. And YES, you SHOULD buy the book!! And one small caveat--I wax a bit on what I love about staying home with my children, but I certainly do not now, nor ever have, believed all women should stay home. I feel all women should only do what EACH women feels called to do and I admire and respect mothers who do whichever.

Read the review here.


  1. So, in this broader context, I get what you're saying. For you, motherhood is the purpose. For me, not so much. But then, living as a single mother when I'm actually married has probably influenced my feelings about it more than whether I work at home or out of it.

  2. I am amazed by all that you do and shoulder with cheer (really, I am not kidding.) REgardless of where one "works," if you're a mother, you have this job/calling/vocation/profession/practice.
