Feedback on Metaphysics of Motherhood

Metaphysics of Motherhood

    It has been a delight to get to bring my manuscript, Metaphysics of Motherhood, to a complete draft!  It has been a year in the making, and 10 years “in the praying.”  I’m giving it to a few people now to look at, including my spiritual director and our priest.  What a relief…
