We make a remarkable and an extraordinary shift when we become Mom. Our essence is deepened by the powerful new vocation and purpose we acquire – that of Being Mom. As mothers, we each take an unchartered journey, an adventure, on an unknown road. What will it be like? How will we feel? What will we find? How will we manage? What new roles, intentions, aspirations and hopes will we take on? How will our priorities and lives change?


The blogs and reading included here provide information for looking at these questions, acknowledging and considering the complexities of motherhood and celebrating the joys and delights of Being Mom. I invite you to consider this an open forum for mothers: to share your thoughts and experiences, to give us understanding and awareness of our common purpose. Let’s encourage one another as we travel the path of Being Mom.
