Ingrid Goff Maidoff - Tending Joy

Celebrating Poetry, Beauty,
& the Sacred Essence of Joy

Good Mother, Welcome ~ Book Raffle

It was such a delightful surprise to have Goddess Leonie Dawson select my Good Mother, Welcome book as  #2 for her” list of top ten books I think every mama should read.

She said, ”

Ingrid sent this to me when Ostara was still a wee babe.

It was another one I sobbed over, creased up, and clutched to my heart.

It’s a love letter from the world to mothers.

Tremendously reassuring, loving, kind and soft.

Just what we need.

I can see why this book gets bought in the dozens to be sent as gifts to new mamas. It is truly remarkable.”

I was truly delighted to read this- how lovely!  I had a small flurry of orders, and of course wanted to give a copy away too.  If you, or someone you know, would like some mothering reassurance, toss a comment in, and I may pick your number from my teacup of numbered doves on Friday the 27th.

    I could really use some mothering reassurance right now–I try so hard but still feel like I do nothing (or very little)right.
    I have a 4 & 6 year old & my husband works a lot so I am on my own most of the time-help!

    My Dear Friend Gail is about to become a grandmother for the first time. I’d love to give this book to her daughter who, of course, is about to be a mother for the first time as well!

    This is my favorite book of yours, Ingrid! Congratulations on making the list of books for every mother to read. I have given this book to so many new mothers-and I received a beautifully inscribed book from my daughter (she is the mother of three beautiful girls now) one Mother’s Day for myself. I try to keep extra books on hand so I will always have some to share.

  7. Ingrid, I absolutely love your work and would be delighted to be gifted with a copy of Good Mother, Welcome. 🙂
