This month’s Mothering magazine offers fabulous ways to honor a pregnant friend at her baby’s shower.
* Pass a “wisdom book” around and ask each guest to contribute words of encouragement.
* Tell guests to bring canned goods for a local women’s shelter and have everyone at the party join hands to pray for all the babies and mothers of the world.
* Throw the shower in a park on hill and have guests write little blessings for mom and the babe, which can then be tied or taped to a kite and flown by the group on a string.
There’s more cool stuff. Look for the magazine on your local newstand.
