The Essence of a Mother: Being Conscious of the Sacred Moments of Motherhood
What does being a mother mean to you? Do you envision a happy, well-adjusted family, a spotless house, home-cooked meals every night? That’s what author Julie Jensen used to strive for, until multiple sclerosis robbed her of the ability to keep up with the physical demands she had been imposing on herself. With less ability to do and more time to think, Jensen spent many hours delving into the meaning of her life. Over time, she realized that being a mother means so much more than just being able to be productive, and her musings on the subject are gathered in The Essence of a Mother. In this book, which would make a fantastic present for Mother’s Day or any holiday, Jensen describes a series of essential traits for being a truly conscious mother, including valuing being together, taking it slow, being introspective, and, of course, loving unconditionally. Filled with personal anecdotes, other interesting little stories, and an abundance of inspirational quotes, this book will give you something to think about no matter how many children you have, no matter where you are in your mothering journey.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
