It often seems that parenting is more an obstacle to genuine spirituality, rather than an avenue to mystery. But in Spirituality of Parenting, Kathy Hendricks asks parents to reflect on their role and to nourish their own spirituality in the midst of their busy and complicated lives. Parents are encouraged to care for their own hearts while navigating the blessings and challenges of family life. Kathy examines four states of the heart: vigilance, joy, heaviness, and hope and each state is anchored in stories from the Hebrew Christian Scriptures and the scriptures of Kathy s own life. We are then invited to connect our own stories with all our moments of chaos and creation with Kathy s stories and with her insights. This is a book meant to mark up, underline phrases, and write notes in the margins.
