How we describe God matters when we seek God out in and through our lives. Often we understand God through very masculine language. What is lost in those often held descriptions? 

The Bible is filled with diverse descriptions of God’s character and being. Join Alyssa Bell as she unpacks the historical and scriptural basis for God as Mother, an image she highlights in her recent book Calm and Quiet My Soul: A Holistic Approach to Spiritual Care for the Mothering Pastor. The God as Mother image can be spiritually refreshing for all people, regardless of gender or vocation. All are welcome!

More from Alyssa on Spiritual Care

Self-care and soul care are trending topics in Christian leadership circles because ministry leaders know they cannot care for their people unless they care for themselves. Pastors who are mothers know this too, and yet it can feel like just one more task to manage among the many they carry on their schedules and in their hearts. The biblical truth is that spiritual rest is a gift from God, not an achievement, a refreshing reminder for women who hold the dual roles of mom and minister.

This book invites women leading in these spaces to remember that the God of the Old and New Testaments, the one who pours out replenishment for weary hearts, is a God who is Mother as well as Father, and mothers them with tenderness and strength. Starting here, in the arms of a mothering God who whispers “beloved,” changes the tone of spiritual care for her from a chore to an oasis of replenishment that grounds her in her identity in Christ as a daughter of Creator God.
