A Mother’s Heart Essay

Like the beautiful, natural force of our beloved Mother (Lake) Superior, a mother’s love has the power to shape the world around her. Powerful, nurturing, strong, calm, refreshing, wild, and ever-changing.


To honor mothers throughout the community, Doulas of Marquette will host its second “A Mother’s Heart Essay Contest.” Local mothers and those who have been inspired by a mother or mother-like figure are invited to submit a 200–500-word essay. The deadline for submission is Thursday, May 6, 2021, at 5 pm EST.



“Motherhood cannot be contained in one single person’s story – motherhood is joy and heartache, welcoming and loss. We invite all stories,” said Melinda Britton, owner of Doulas of Marquette. “Mothers play such an important role and we want to create space for them to share a glimpse into their worlds and experiences.”


Prizes will be awarded for the top three essays with the support of these local women-owned businesses:

Kelly Gilligan Designs

Shailah’s Flower Garden

The Marquette Spa



Everyday Wines
