Someone Other Than a Mother Flipping the Scripts on a Woman's Purpose and Making Meaning beyond MotherhoodMay 13, 2022 By Collegeville Institute Erin S. Lane Penguin Random House, Apr 26, 2022 "Visit this title on the publishers website" As a young Catholic girl who grew up in the American Midwest on white bread and Jesus, Erin S. Lane was given two options for a life well-lived: Mother or Mother Superior. She could marry a man and mother her own children, or she could marry God, so to speak, and mother the world’s children. Both were good outcomes for someone else’s life. Neither would fit the shape of hers. With candor and verve, Someone Other Than a Mother tears up the shaming social scripts that are bad for moms and non-moms alike and rewrites the story of a life well-lived, one in which purpose is bigger than body parts, identity is fuller than offspring, and legacy is so much more than DNA.
