A droopy-eyed mom talks about staying up all night with her newborn. A young mother comes to terms with her son's learning disability. A foster mom decides to be a champion for an abused little girl. These twelve monologues cover all aspects and stages of motherhood from driving in a car with small children, to dealing with teenagers and the empty nest. Both poignant and humorous, these skits can be performed separately or as a whole play at women's retreats, luncheons or anytime. Easy staging and minimal props and costumes make the monologues ideal for sermon starters as well.
These 20 monologues are intended to minister to the needs of people today in a dramatic context. Built around a Biblical character, incident, or parable, seven of the monologues cover specific holidays while the rest can be used anytime.

Effective with sermons or in other settings, too. Use to minister, entertain, and inspire!

Others include Stephen and Jerry who meet in judgment hall and find they have different destinies; a talking book called H.B. that can't seem to get anyone to listen to him; and a farmer with three soils who could care less about growi...
