The Mother Zone

In an English class a few years ago, a student of professor Trudelle Thomas’ talked about balancing motherhood and work. She showed raw photos of her child’s birth and the baby nursing at her breast. Though shocked, the students jumped into a debate about how society, men and Christianity view women’s bodies. Thomas was so intrigued she decided to write a book. Spirituality in the Mother Zone explores a woman’s need for spiritual renewal even as she dishes out copious amounts of love, patience and wisdom to her children. Thomas wrote the book to help women know they don’t have to be society’s “perfect mother” but can take charge of their lives by listening to their deeper selves. “It’s about trusting your spirit, your wisdom and God’s presence in your life.”
