Product Description


Inspired by her book Motherprayer: Lessons in Loving, Barbara Mahany presents The Blessings of Motherprayer a lovely gift book featuring wisps of inspirational writings to carry you through the day, the hour, and whatever comes your way. The book is a patchwork quilt of inspiration and prayer, with a smidge of recipes. These meditative notes on mothering magnify the wonders and wisdoms of loving with a wide-open heart. They reveal that no matter which way you look at the motherhood role and parenthood, it is essential that every stitch along this broadcloth of hope, faith, and unwavering trust be knotted with and held firm by prayer.

The devotional is rich in reminders to slow time, and savor the blessing of each and every hour of each and every season of mothering, be it the rare quietude of time alone, or amid the cacophony of the daily bustle. Discover powerful quotes, heart-scripted prayer, and stories that invite you to pay attention, cradle your loved ones in prayer, and see the sacred lessons in loving. Be inspired to view life through a magnifying lens in search of God, to probe the nooks and crannies of our everyday, and find opportunities to infuse and focus on the holy in our extraordinary ordinary day-to-day.

About the Author


Barbara Mahany

Barbara Mahany

Barbara Mahany is an author and freelance journalist in Chicago, who writes these days about stumbling on the sacred amid the cacophony of the modern-day domestic melee. She was a reporter and feature writer at the Chicago Tribune for nearly 30 years, and before that a pediatric oncology nurse at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago. In her book, Motherprayer: Lessons in Loving, Mahany turns her attention to the sacred mysteries of mothering. Publishers Weekly gave Motherprayer a starred review, writing: "[Mahany] beautifully captures how mothering—loving deeply day in and day out, even when stretched to emotional and physical limits—can itself be sacramental." Her first book, Slowing Time: Seeing the Sacred Outside Your Kitchen Door, has been called "a field guide into the depths of your holiest hours," and Publishers Weekly named it one of their Top 10 religion books for 2014, fall crop. Mahany lives in the Chicago area with her husband, the Tribune's Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic, Blair Kamin, and their two sons, Will and Teddy.
