This community blog offers a safe, supportive space for ministry moms to reflect, ponder and wonder about God’s dual call to motherhood and ministry. The idea began with the book A Divine Duet: Ministry and Motherhood (www.helwys.com), a collection of twenty essays published in June 2013. From church pastors to inner city ministers, healthcare chaplains to professors, these ministers represent step-moms, birth moms, adoptive moms, and women who mother other people’s children.
This blog allows us to continue to widen the circle of writers and readers, making room for more voices to be heard. Our hope is to continue sharing what God is doing in our lives as ministers and as mothers, in all the forms that may take. The more we share our stories, insights, questions and reflections, the more normative ministry-mothers’ (or “momisters,” as a friend calls us) voices become in the church. Thanks for joining us!
