Bolstered and trained in love and female friendship, the vulnerable, sleep-deprived, tender, and ferocious Mama Bear inside each of us can bring forth beautiful havoc on our world.
Mama Bear’s Manifesto is a practical, compelling book about devoted friendship and unbridled passion. Leslie Klipsch employs the stress and beauty of motherhood to guide readers to discover life’s marvelous momentum and the ways in which mothers can carve out community, revel in friendship, and outwardly love the world.
As the author navigates the terrain of motherhood while seeking to harness the vigor and raw energy that naturally accompanies the journey, readers will learn to embrace the powerful Mama Bear lurking inside, seize her power, and use it for good. Readers will be encouraged to care for one another and their communities through tangible examples and organizational hints, and feel inspired by stories of impassioned Mama Bears making the world a more beautiful and just place.
