Item description for 4 AM Madonnas: Meditations and Reflections for Mothers and Mothers-To-Be by Rachel Barton...
Overview Pregnancy can be a strange process. Having a baby can alter one's life like nothing else. It is a time when friends, relatives, magazines, and medical personnel all vie for a new mother's attention, telling her what she must have, what she must do, and how she should feel. 4 a.m. Madonna is a handbook of reflective exercises and inspiring thoughts for women who wish to explore the spiritual and emotional dimensions of pregnancy and new motherhood. It will help the reader understand that pregnancy and motherhood begin a new phase in life - a small new person will depend on the mother for imaginative support and inspiration, things she will need to find for herself, too. 4 a.m. Madonna draws from a broad Christian tradition, particularly contemplative spirituality and theology. It also reflects the author's own experience in exploring the spiritual and emotional side during this phase of life.
Publishers Description Pregnancy can be a strange process. Having a baby alters your life like nothing else. It is a time when friends, relatives, magazines, and doctors all vie for your attention, telling you what you must have, what you need to do, what you should be feeling. In the midst of this whirlwind it is important to find a sense of inner calm. You can transcend the madness and find something spiritual, something of God, in all of this. It is possible to pay positive attention to your feelings, to enjoy exploring your inner experiences, and to clearly discern what is right for you, your baby, and your new family. Based on a broad Christian tradition, this handbook offers exercises for prayer and reflection as a way of exploring your own experiences during those times when you need spiritual guidance most. Although the reflections are specific to pregnancy and motherhood, any woman will find them helpful long after she ceases to be pregnant and her family grows up. This is a gift for mothers of any age. "Paperback " PDF Samples Introduction Table of Contents Pages 1-3
