|Mother’s Day: We want to hear your voices!
Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and we know this year’s celebrations of mothers and mother figures may look quite a bit differentas many of us care for these loved ones from afar. We also know that Mother’s Day is a different experience for everyone and can bring joy as well as challenges.
We want to celebrate with you in how you have been positively influenced by a mother or a mother figure. We also want to hear from you how this day and topic of motherhood might bring a mix of emotions so we can share in that with you and support you as a community. Help us out with a special Mother’s Day feature by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and letting us know your thoughts and perspective on Mother’s Day, using the following prompts:
- In what ways have you experienced what it means to be or have a mother that you can celebrate? This may be an experience with someone you call “mom” or someone who has filled any part of that role for you in some way – or someone you have cared for in a nurturing way.
- In what ways has this experience been a joyful or fulfilling one, and in what ways have you felt disappointment?
- How has your experience of what it means to be or have a mother interacted with your experience of God?
- Tell us a fun story about mom life. (If this is a story about someone else, please be sure they’re ok with us sharing this story. We won’t use names.)
