Keeping a Mothering Diary: Making the Most of Motherhood as a Journey of Faith and Action. As many a new mother discovers at a deeper level, our society exacts harsh costs from mothers and children. We may be too often separated due to the mother's need to bring in income; or we may be isolated together, in a world where most others are not doing this caring work at home. We may be separated at birth, when a mother is unable to keep a baby; or we may pay difficult costs while raising a child without a partner. Whatever a woman discovers on becoming a mother, it deserves to be examined and to become something she acts upon in the world. By keeping a mothering diary, a mother can follow the journey of her spirit, explore the effects of her experiences of bearing and raising children on her faith, and imagine a better world for mothers and children--which is all of us. In this program, we'll share our mothering situations and begin these diaries, using exercises and discussion to put this invaluable practice into action.
