Mother’s Day

Published: May 7, 2012

We celebrate moms everywhere this week with a selection of essays from our new book, This I Believe: On Motherhood. These writers tell of the lessons learned from being a mother, and of the wisdom gained from the mothers in their lives. As one essayist says, “A mother’s love can overcome hatred, animosity and selfishness. It has the power to heal an abused heart and body.”
