Mary, Elizabeth, and Anna. Three very different women, at different ages and stages of life. One single, one married, one widowed. One just beginning to experience life. One coping with the challenges and changes of midlife. And one coming close to the end of her life. But these women had one thing in common. They chose to submit to God's will, even when it didn't seem to make sense. Take a closer look at their words and actions, and see how each woman had a unique purpose in God's great plan to bring His Son to earth. A willing heart, a hearing heart, and a faithful heart. The Three Wise Men, though mentioned only briefly in the Gospel of Matthew, are well-known characters in the Christmas story. But we know very little about them-not even their names, or if in fact there were three of them. But the Scriptures do teach us for certain about three wise women-Mary, mother of Jesus; Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist; and Anna, a prophetess who proclaimed the good news of Jesus' birth. Each woman played an important role in the Christmas story. They didn't give Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, as the wise men did. But they did offer Him their most precious possessions: their hearts.

This co-edited volume considers the mother-daughter bond through maternal storytelling or narrative and the Motherline. The narratives foreground the theory that a strong mother-daughter connection leads to empowerment, and attempt to link that connection with education. Using counter-narratives to patriarchal framings of family, this collection affirms the power of women educators telling and reading their stories as a means of self-discovery, empowerment, and, ultimately, cultural transformation.

It s Up to You

On the spiritual path we speak of enlightenment. But how do we reconcile the idea of enlightenment with what we see when we look in the mirror—when insecurities, doubts, and self-centered tendencies arise in our minds? Dzigar Kongtrül suggests that we need not feel "doomed" when these experiences surface. In fact, such experiences are not a problem if we are able to simply let them arise without judging them or investing them with so much meaning. This approach to experience is what Kongtrül calls self-reflection. Self-reflection is a practice, a path, and an attitude. It is the spirit of taking an interest in that which we usually try to push away. When we practice self-reflection we take liberation into our own hands and accept the challenge and personal empowerment in Kongtrül’s title: it’s up to you.
