“Walking the Mother Path”

Carol Rose and Lu Ann Lynde of Winnipeg, Manitoba are creating a set of cards depicting Biblical women, to be used as tools for focusing on the women’s stories. The qualities of each person — including Leah, Rebecca, Sarah and Rachel — are portrayed through an illustration meant to spur contemplation and discussion in “Walking the Motherpath” workshops.

Rose composed the poetry for the cards, which are illustrated by Lynde. The workshops are, says Rose, “an attempt to use the Biblical mothers as ‘mirrors of identity’ or doorways to a greater personal awareness. It is my belief that as we unravel the stories of Biblical women, we gain insight into our own life processes as well.”
