5.0 out of 5 stars This book made me feel like I could pray again. April 27, 2009
Format:Paperback
When Transformational Mothering was given to me I was worried because I do not consider myself a Christian and I did not know what to expect. I anticipated being offended in some way but this book is so beautifully written and so inclusive that I felt connected to the community of mothers in a way I had not fully experienced before. This book made me feel like could pray again.

Transformational Mothering did more than touch my soul, it was useful. It is a book that I refer to over and over again for comfort, inspiration or just a good laugh.

What impressed me most was how this first time mother really understood the complexity of her journey as a mother, that she could put it into words and that she could honor her journey and the journey of other mothers. It was empowering to read. This book is a true gift to anyone who is thinking of becoming a mother or who is a mother or who wants a great gift for a mother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful May 21, 2009
Format:Paperback
This is a beautifully written ode to all mothers and to Motherhood. Amy Robbins-Wilson writes of her own experiences as a new mother with wisdom, grace, and a wonderful sense of humor. Reading her thoughts, anecdotes, and prayers touched me thoroughly and brought me to tears many times. This is a book to which I shall return again and again for its uplifting prayers and affirmations. I am so happy to have been given this book and know that I will be the one giving it in the future!

This book is a gift to the world. Transformational Mothering is a wonderful, inspirational and supportive book for all mothers. It contains a series of prayers that will appeal to the religious and non-religious alike. The prayers are a collection of positive affirmations for ourselves and our children as we travel on the journey of Motherhood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peeling an Egg June 11, 2009
Format:Paperback
Where was this book when I was 19 years old and a single mother? Prayers, poetry, affirmations and stories beautifully written and shared from her heart; Amy provides us with a true gift. Transformational Mothering is a 'must have' for every new mother. This book would make a wonderful baby shower gift! As a mother of three, an early childhood educator and an author myself, I LOVE this book and highly recommend you purchase it for yourself and a new mother in your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exquisite example of parenting with prayer. May 20, 2009
Format:Paperback
Transformational Mothering teaches us to create while being awake, spiritually, and fully conscious of our staggering vulnerability in life as parents; our need for support; the importance of "faith"; and the pure delight of seeing ourselves proceed gratefully into a more spirit-connected future with and through our children from those moments prior to conception and beyond. With each thought, word, and action, all of us are continually "praying" and thus, creating. Here, the author has graciously modeled how best to pray exposing most every possibility facing a parent. This book is truly a masterful piece of thoughtful and devout understanding of the power of prayer and the wondrous "gift" of being in relationship with our children. A must read for anyone that is planning on being a parent or is a parent. Jim Solo, Father and Grandparent

5.0 out of 5 stars I will buy this book for every mom-to-be I know May 15, 2009
Format:Paperback
I was so touched and blessed by this book, I wish I had it when I was going through my first pregancy and my then-infant son's health problems 8 years ago. Throughout pregnancy and as a new mom, I read everything I could find about what to expect, but what was missing from every book was how spititual the journey can be when we become parents -- parenting changes us in amazing and bewildering ways. Lots of times things happen that we can't expect or plan for. I love the gentleness of this book as it addresses the things that can break us -- exhaustion, worry, comparing ourselves to other moms and their journeys, experiencing complications in pregnancy or our baby's health problems. I appreciate Amy Robbins-Wilson's candor and the beautiful simplicity of her prayers, and it is MY prayer that this book will help many, many new mothers or mothers-to-be who need validation and comfort along the crazy journey of becoming a parent. This book is going on my list of books that I will give to every new mom or mom-to-be that I know.
