Welcome to Mothering Spirit: a gathering place to explore parenting and spirituality. 

With storytelling shaped by the liturgical seasons, our collaborative, ecumenical project offers weekly essays and prayers from diverse voices on motherhood – plus virtual retreats, e-books, resources, and creative ways to connect our stories with God’s story.

Created by author and speaker Laura Kelly Fanucci, Mothering Spirit gathers readers and writers for conversation and community around faith and family.

Subscribe to our free Substack newsletter to stay tuned to our latest offerings.

You can support the writers of Mothering Spirit through Patreon, starting at only $2/month. If you’re interested in becoming a weekly or monthly sponsor (to share your business or organization with our readers), find more details here.

Join us to find God in motherhood and pray through parenting, all year long.
