I know there must be quaker/friends mamas out there, but I can't seem to find a tribe. I would love to share resources about how you share your faith with your children. I would to learn about love books, games, movies that promote peaceful values and listening to one another.
Any ideas?

Hi mama. I am a recently convinced friend. I still hold onto my Pagan beliefs, but incorporate them with Quaker beliefs. I am a head covering, modern "Christian" dressing mama. I am learning idea myself, and would be thrilled to hear from other mamas also.

Hi! DH has been a friend for years. We're definitely of the liberal variety. I know the UU bookstore online has a lot of kid/family focused books that would be compatible with the Quaker worldview. I haven't read it yet, but have "non-violent communication" on my "to read" list.

one of the best resource lists i know is the Quakerbooks of FGC bookstore. the online catalog has many subcategories, and you'll find a lot of the titles in your library. for example, there are many picture books for teaching Quaker beliefs. also good resources there for adult reading and reflection.

also great book lists at the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting Library. they are organized by theme, for example "conflict resolution: children" and "environment: children"

if you had a specific topic or age you need ideas for, i would be glad to help. i have been attending an unprogrammed Friends meeting for ten years now (though in the past year i have been also attending a masjid and immersed in Islam....a long story for another thread ).

I have two books on Quaker parenting. "One Small Plot of Heaven" by Elise Boulding and "Paths to Quaker Parenting." I bought them both on Amazon, but I'm sure QuakerBooks has them as well.

One non-Quaker specific but great book that I discovered over the summer is the NVC-based "Respectful Parents. Respectful Kids." There are so many great activities and ideas in it.

hi subbing

i'm a pagan but actively seeking truth in other religions. I've been very active in a UU church this last year but have wanted to explore quakerism more. I've been unable due to an unprogramed service + 3 yr old just don't work.
from what i've read i could easily identify as quaker as well DS is with grandma so my first meeting will be tomorrow !
