On Becoming a Mother

I’ve said it often and written about it many times-

In childbirth, I learned that I was capable of more than my mind could wrap itself around.

I had a lived experience of the new story of our time.

What we know in our hearts- that the world is good and beautiful and true- is possible despite our mind’s inability to grasp it or figure out how to get there.





In the book, On Becoming a Mother, I share a small slice of my story, which begins, “All my life I was Carrie Lee, the sweet and quiet good girl, follower of rules, planner and lover of logic…”


The book is a compilation of wisdom on becoming a mother, shared by women from around the world.  It’s available at the end of this month, in time for International Women’s Day.  Proceeds support the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood!
