    Wise, funny, and encouraging quotes by mothers and about motherhood—in all its messy, wonderful glory. 
     
    I have found being a mother has made me emotionally raw in many situations. Your heart is beating outside your body when you have a baby. —Kate Beckinsale 
     
     
     
    In an era of online mom-shaming, Carissa Bonham likes to keep things authentic when discussing the struggles of modern motherhood. One popular meme shared on Carissa’s website, Creative Green Living, says “Some days I make beautiful dinners from scratch. Today my kids had cereal and ice cream for dinner. At least it was organic.”

Explore the many stages of motherhood, the life-giving power of mothers, mom instincts, and cultural parenting through the quotes on these pages. Receive advice from crunchy moms, mothers of differently wired kids, and mothers of teens and adult children. And take comfort in the knowledge that while each motherhood journey is unique, the power of love is universal.
