Here you will find inspiration (Being…) and practical tools (Doing…) for nurturing spiritual growth of mothers and their young children, inspired by teachings of the Baha’i Faith.
Here are some of the themes explored on our website:
Being a mother is one of the most important and loved jobs a human could ever have, and it can also be very challenging, confusing, and even isolating. Here, we hope you will find spiritual nourishment for the noble venture you are undertaking every day.
We hope this will be a place you can ask questions, seek answers from other like-minded mothers, and gain spiritual sustenance to meet your day with joy, strength, and resolve. You deserve to be confirmed as the first educator of your children and know that you have the capacities within yourself to fulfill this role successfully.
Please see our Note to the Moms for some more personal words about our site and how we are not moms that “do it all.”
Our Guiding Quotation
“Work ye for the guidance of the women in that land, teach the young girls and the children, so that the mothers may educate their little ones from their earliest days, thoroughly train them, rear them to have a goodly character and good morals, guide them to all the virtues of humankind, prevent the development of any behaviour that would be worthy of blame, and foster them in the embrace of Bahá’í education. Thus shall these tender infants be nurtured at the breast of the knowledge of God and His love. Thus shall they grow and flourish, and be taught righteousness and the dignity of humankind, resolution and the will to strive and to endure. Thus shall they learn perseverance in all things, the will to advance, high mindedness and high resolve, chastity and purity of life. Thus shall they be enabled to carry to a successful conclusion whatsoever they undertake.”
~ Abdu’l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha, p. 124
