Editorial Reviews


"I can't think of anything more important to the healing of our society than a connection between spirituality and parenthood. Bravo to the Vissells for helping us find the way." -- Marianne Williamson

"In Model of Love, Joyce and Barry Vissell once again champion the path of devotion. They remind us that the process of parenting is yet another opportunity to integrate that in us which is human with that in us which is divine." -- Ram Dass

"Models of Love is more than a parenting book. It will bless your whole life." -- John Bradshaw

"This book is full of miraculous incidents and sacred moments of loving connection that will bring tears to your eyes." -- Whole Life Magazine

"This is a book we whole-heartedly recommend to first-time parents, to grandparents, and to everyone in between." -- Mothering Magazine

From the Author

This book is for parents and non-parents alike. It is for anyone even curious about the deeper meaning of family life and the transformation it can bring. It is for couples who want to glimpse the practical as well as the inspirational side of parenting-and even more, how they can be integrated.

For parents, this book will be like a companion on a long journey-something they can open to in times of need or crisis; at other times to share their uncontainable joy. It has been so for us. In the two years of writing and collecting contributions, we have been helped, inspired, nourished, and reassured as parents. We have more deeply understood the many-faceted gem of parenthood.

May the contents of this book serve you on your journey in this life. May its pages open new horizons for your view; new paths along which to explore. May the thoughts and stories, the quotes and contributions, all convey the utter simplicity and yet profound beauty of this experience called family.

We offer this book from our hearts to you-our extended family. We offer this book to all models of love everywhere. We offer this book for the healing of our beautiful planet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational parenting support February 14, 2000
By a mom
I read this book during my daughter's first major illness. This was word-medicine for my exhausted body and soul, and many times gave me the strength and inspiration to face another day with energy and compassion for my child who needed me so completely then (and every day). Good support for those who are thinking about homeschool, and who question the effects of television and vaccination on our children's minds and bodies. Enlightened parenting at its best!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book had a profound effect on my life! September 12, 1998
By A Customer
I first read the book when I lived in Santa Cruz, CA where I eventually met the authors. Their simple use of language does not detract from the amount of love and faith which is evident in their stories. They are people with a lot of love in their lives and who have experience with healing, and they want to share both. This book gave me hope and sparked a belief in God which was not based on anyone telling me what to think. If you are looking for healing I think you will like this book! Barry and Joyce live what they speak.
