Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg on Parenthood as a Spiritual Path

Danya RuttenbergRabbi Danya Ruttenberg knows what it's like to parent small children. In "Nurture the Wow: Finding Spirituality in the Frustration, Boredom, Tears, Poop, Depseration, Wonder, and Radical Amazement of Parenting", Ruttenberg looks at the experiience from an unusal perspective.  What if, instead of being a distraction from spiritual growth, the all-encompassing endeavor of parenting is a spiritual path all its own?
