Featured Anthologies for Mom on Mothers Day
The Ying and Yang of Moms
Some days I'm sentimental, some days a
tiger. I thought it would be fun to feature two anthologies that explore
the polarity of motherhood. I was fortunate to have had an essay published
in each of these anthologies, one about advocating for equal rights for my
daughter, another about the sweet act of picking my kindergartener son up from
The Maternal is Political is a kick-arse
collection of writings from moms on their haunches and in action. A
Cup of Comfort for Mothers celebrates the warmer side of motherhood.
Both collections illustrate vehement acts of maternal love. One could be just
right for a Mom you know, but you may find some mom's really need both books
this Mothers Day.

know that having children will change their lives immensely. What some don’t
know is that by becoming mothers they will become politically motivated to
change the world.
The Maternal Is Political: Women Writers at the Intersection of Motherhood and Social Change
/ June 2008), edited by Shari MacDonald Strong, we hear from women who have
experienced a political awakening as an indirect result of giving birth. These
women have discovered that politics is far from irrelevant to child rearing.
Having children is a realization that the world is not solely theirs anymore, it
is the next generation’s, and to love their kids means to change the state that
this world is in.
The Maternal is
Political is organized into three
sections, Believe, Teach, and Act. Believe is about
having confidence in your personal truths, as Nancy Pelosi expresses in “As a
Mother,” in which she encourages mothers to believe in their power to stand up
and end the war. The essays in Teach discuss passing on knowledge to
others, and we see this in “A Letter to My Daughter at Thirteen,” by Barbara
Kingsolver, in which she recalls her own past, what she has learned through her
life, and shares her hopes for her daughter’s future. Action is the
process of changing what you believe to be unjust, as Benazir Bhutto
communicates in “One Day,” where she writes about the demands of her work,
traveling often, and being away from her children.
These authors are candid, powerful, and
inspiring. They are able to prove that motherhood is a larger task than
many realize. It is the task of making the world a better place.
A Cup of Comfort for Mothers:
that celebrate the women who give us everything
by Colleen Sell
Adams Media/March 2010
While the tone of A Cup of Comfort for Mothers: Stories that celebrate the women who give us everything
is softer than our other featured anthology, you'll find all the
strength of motherhood expressed in these short
essays about maternal experiences. Is your mom your best friend? Or your biggest fan?
Your loyal confidante? No matter what she means to you, Mom is
always the one you turn to when you need a shoulder to cry on, sound
advice, and unconditional love. And there's no better way to pay
tribute to the most exceptional woman in your life than with this
touching and poignant collection.
Inside, you'll meet fifty mothers, daughters, and sons who
celebrate the mother-child bond by sharing heartfelt and personal
stories--from tales of new mothers to adult children who are
longtime parents themselves before they truly realize the abiding
strength of a mother's love.
Featuring narratives by and for mothers, this newest volume in
the Cup of Comfort series is the perfect gift to remind her that
every day is Mother's Day.
