The inspiring spirituality of women is the focus of this post.  First I want to introduce you to Machig Labdrön, a spiritual leader in the Buddhist religion.  Then I want you to meet Mama Kong, Leah and Usha, all women whose lives show what they believe.  Last, I want you to hear from a Muslim mother about how giving unconditional love to children starts with giving it to ourselves.
