Author Barbara Mahany returns to Women’s Exchange to share personal love letters on the mysteries and gifts of mothering, interspersed with family recipes and essays, all offering lessons in how to love well in her soon to be released newest book, “Motherprayer.” She captures the ephemeral moments of motherhood -- the hard, the glorious, the laughter and the tears -- and invites readers to pay attention, and see the sacred lessons in loving. We will celebrate all mothers in our life with champagne toast.
