Memoirs of a Catholic Midwife: to teach life's hardest lessons

Forty-three short stories by a midwife who knew all the intimate details first-hand. The stories are grippingly historical but their purpose is educational and moral, making it a book for everybody. Forty years of stories about real people in real situations, false love, courtship, romance, abortion, marriage, dysfunctional families. Thoughtful medicine for public immodesty and ungoverned feelings. Mostly unhappy endings, but since when have fairytale endings taught us life's hardest lessons? Parents, use the living examples in this book to explain the beauty, dangers, finality, order, morality, proper terms, and attitudes of the matrimonial union. Young adults, learn from the experiences of others instead of making your own disastrous mistakes. A can't-put-it-down easy-to-read book, convincing readers that happiness on earth is only possible when the order of the Divine Creator regarding Human Life is respected. Fully appropriate and necessary material.

Best guide for young women

All For the Love of Mothers is the best guide for teens that I have ever read. Some young women give themselves outside marriage and Lisbeth Burger shows how unhappy their lives often turn out to be. Others marry unselfish men who love children more than lust, sports, riches or anything else, and this author, in my opinion, tells their stories more effectively than anyone ever has.

I hope this book is back in print soon. I want to give it again as gifts.

I can't even describe how much I love this book.

First, each chapter is its own short story. As a busy mom this is great because I can put the book down for a week and I don't have to try to remember what was going on in the book the last time I read it. Secondly, each story is so interesting that it's hard to put it down! The midwife's role in the life of families was a beautiful thing that we have lost and it is very important to see what ever day life used to be like in simpler times. I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone, especially moms and young women!

for anyone

It is a really good book for anyone to read.

Marriage, fatherhood, motherhood, caring for life ... a vocation not for wimps.

That's what this book explicitly describes.
