Rewilding Motherhood: Your Path to an Empowered Feminine Spirituality Paperback - 2021

by Shannon K. Evans


From the publisher

Women are often told by their communities that being a mother will complete or define them. But many mothers find themselves depleted and spiritually stagnant amid the everyday demands of being a mom. They long to experience a rich inner life but feel there is rarely enough time, energy, or stillness to connect with God in a meaningful way.

This book takes the concept of rewilding and applies it to motherhood. Just as an environmentalist seeks to rewild land by returning it to its natural state, Shannon Evans invites women to rewild motherhood by reclaiming its essence through an expansive feminine spirituality.

Drawn from the contemplative Catholic tradition and Evans's own parenting experience, Rewilding Motherhood helps women deepen their connection to God through practices inherent to the life they're living now. Topics include work-life balance, identity, solitude, patience, household work, and mission for the common good. Throughout, Evans encourages women to see motherhood as an opportunity to discover a vibrant feminine spirituality and a deeper knowledge of God and self.

Discover an Empowered Feminine Spirituality in the Midst of Motherhood

We are often told that motherhood will complete or define us. But we may find ourselves depleted and spiritually stagnant amid the everyday demands of being a mom, feeling there is rarely enough time, energy, or stillness to connect with God in a meaningful way.

Shannon K. Evans takes the concept of rewilding and applies it to motherhood. Just as an environmentalist seeks to rewild land by returning it to its natural state, Evans invites us to rewild motherhood by reclaiming its essence through an expansive feminine spirituality--leading us to a deeper knowledge of God and self.

"If you are a mother who longs to feel at home in motherhood--or a seeker who wrestles with finding a home in faith--Shannon Evans offers a new way to encounter the divine within the ordinary."
--Laura Kelly Fanucci, author of Everyday Sacrament: The Messy Grace of Parenting

"Evans takes us on a journey to explore the fullness of our identities as women. This book surprised me, taught me, and held me, reminding me not only of the gift of being a mother but also the gift of coming home to myself in every way possible."
--Kaitlin B. Curtice, author of Native: Identity, Belonging, and Rediscovering God

"This book feels right on time, giving us permission to wonder and wander, finding God--and ourselves--in the magical and mysterious moments of motherhood and in the mundane ones too."
--Kayla Craig, author of To Light Their Way: A Collection of Prayers and Liturgies for Parents; cofounder of Upside Down Podcast

"In a culture that has long minimized the full humanity of women, Evans invites us to a more expansive view of motherhood and ultimately femininity. Rewilding Motherhood is both a fierce encouragement and a deep exhale. I'm grateful for this book."
--Aundi Kolber, therapist; author of Try Softer and The Try Softer Guided Journey
