About this Book:

Mother's Calling: Love in the Heart of the World calls to Christian women everywhere to see themselves as part of the long tradition of holy women in Scripture, and as such, to seek holiness of life by better understanding their calling and the depths of love to which God invites them through motherhood.

Seeing, understanding, and appreciating motherhood as a special life vocation in which women share and participate in God's works of creative and redemptive love is the focus of this book. Through prayerful reading and reflection upon scripture along with practical contemplative exercises, mothers are invited to a spiritual awakening of their unique calling in life as Christian mothers.

This insightful reading resource offers an approach for a renewed understanding about Christian motherhood that may be used individually or in discussion groups.

About the Author:

Julie L. Paavola is a mother, writer, and spiritual director. A lifelong student of the rich Catholic spiritual tradition, she earned her MA in religion in society from the Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, California, and completed the Pierre Favre course in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.

What Are People Saying about this Title?

"The Mother's Calling is a marvelous blending of the practical and spiritual experiences of motherhood. Julie Paavola invites the reader on a journey of creation and memory making. The Encounter and Practice section at the end of each chapter is the 'gold' of the book. Prepare to meet yourself and your children in laughter, tears, and prayer."
Anne Hansen, columnist, TheTidings
