LifeWays, Working with Family Questions

USD $25.50

by Gudrun Davy and Bons Voors

Lifeways is about children, about family life and about being a parent. But above all it is about freedom, and how the tension between family life and personal fulfilment can be resolved.

Rapid change and the pressures for survival have affected many families. Whilst the integration of motherhood or fatherhood and identity, family and work is our own search – we do not have to go it alone. For others are seeking new ‘life-ways’.

Lifeways originated amongst groups of women – and some men – who were seeking a renewing spirit for family life. They strove to create new visions of the tasks of parents, a new ‘eye’ for the meaning of ‘home’ as a place which supports families in their ‘life-ways’. Lifeways is a resource book for home making.

This book is a valuable resource for parents and kindergarten teachers and playgroup leaders, as well as for women's support groups.

Softcover, 328 pages.  21 x 15 cm.

Reviews

“These essays affirm that creating a family, even if you are a father on your own, or a working mother, can be a joyful, positive and spiritual work. The first essay, the ‘Meaning of Being a Mother Today’, is one of the wisest and most balanced discussions of women’s roles I have read.” — Fiona Handley, Church of England Newspaper
