By Marta Greenwood

When I first read Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, I discovered the concept that God is Mother, as well as Father. For the first time, I realized that motherhood is a strength, not a weakness. I also found another name for God: Mind. I read that each one of us is the reflection of God, as the Bible states in the first chapter of Genesis. I came to realize that drawing on God's wisdom and intelligence, and on the strength of God's mothering qualities, made me a strong reflection of the divine womanhood. This was a dramatic change for me, as I had been raised in Iran, where I had absorbed a very limited, negative view of myself and of all women.
