A Global Anthology of Mindful + Spiritual Motherhood Stories

Welcome to Soul Lift, a "Chicken Soup for the Soul" inspired project to uplift and empower spiritual mothers around the world. We are opening the conversation about how spirituality and mindfulness play a role in Motherhood.

Through this project, women are vulnerably sharing their stories that don’t fit the rhetoric we’ve been told. They’re getting real about postpartum, mental health, mindfulness, spirituality, and everything in between.

This global mission honors all motherhood truths to share journeys of women, who are using self-empowerment, mindfulness, and spirituality as a means to create their own path.

These incredible women have ignited a fire within themselves and we hope that by giving them this platform we can heal together and all feel a little less alone. There is so much power in our truth and the more we can help those who come after us, what a better world this can be.

We hope these women's courage will help you recognize your own strength and beauty with some sprinkles of inspiration, cause we could all use a Soul Lift.
