On Friday, we invoke the muse of motherhood to shine her light of inspiration upon us.

Faith has been on my mind all week — how I draw upon it every day. How much being a mother is the biggest leap of faith I could ever imagine. How without faith in something greater than this life, I might fall into the shadow of despair quite easily. I searched my mind and books and the web for something to post to inspire and energize you today, but nothing is as powerful as Faith itself. So I began thinking about stories…and how stories shared and passed down (like the story of Sarah in this card) are potent medicine when we begin to question things. Then I re-found this story that Krishna Das shares about his guru, Neem Karoli Baba, talking about Christ. Baba tells him to “meditate like Christ” and how. How does this loop back to Faith and mothering? When I heard, I knew. (It is in the first 5 1/2 minutes of this tender, sweet and humorous video).

ALSO, the winners of last week’s giveaway: Erin and Jennifer. Thanks everyone! Have a sweet weekend.
