Description : Mornings with Mother Mary: Growing Into Love speaks to the heart of who we are. The blessed Mother of Jesus, through messages brought forth by Naneki Elliott, challenges us to question beliefs which limit our capacity to know our own divinity. She encourages us to face our fears and to choose compassion in every moment. She inspires us to know ourselves as who she is: the love of God. Mother Mary’s messages are offered as separate meditations on such topics as compassion, goals, money, war and peace, remembering, choice, sickness and health, death and life. Mother Mary also answers specific questions regarding Hollywood, Littleton, Colorado, the Millennium, the lifetime of Jesus, the Gore/Bush campaign, and former President Clinton’s impeachment trial.
