Welcome to the Lilies of the Field website, where we are not just a business and ministry but a movement. Lilies of the Field symbolize the women (Lilies) in the world (Field) facing and overcoming hardships (weeds). We are triumphant, we are the masterpiece that blooms and grows in such a sometimes ugly place.
Just like us as women, there are many different species of the Lily with their own characteristics, grace, style, beauty, distinctive looks and features, characteristics. They even differ in the way of their survival. Lilies of the Field represent strength, beauty, forgiveness, resilience, growth, purity, transitioning, motherhood, aspiration, passion, faith, hope, humbleness, and so much more.
Just like us as women, Lilies, while living in the field battle unannounced storms with no place of refuge, comfort. Not knowing when the storm will end, they endure through it (they toil not, neither do they spin). Most importantly, when that storm is over the Lilies are still standing tall, shining brighter, bolder, stronger, and much more stunning than before.
According to Matthew 6: 28, 30; Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin....Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field........ shall he not much more clothe you....?
Ladies, please know that you are the Lilies in the Field. Affirm right now, I AM A LILY OF THE FIELD.

Check out the Book Reviews:
Sharisa T. Robertson has brilliantly, methodically and courageously put together a masterpiece that gives the women contributing to this work permission to heal from their painful mother-daughter relationships. A Letter to My Mother: A Daughter's Perspective is a powerful compilation of uncut letters that finally gives the little girl inside each woman, whose voice was taken away or ignored, a safe place to express the unresolved issues, pain, rejection, abandonment, abuse, anger and yearning to be loved. This is a must read for all adults whose inner child is still without a voice and, therefore, has yet to heal and for the parents whose parenting style resembles that of the mothers in this book.

These women share powerful stories of loss and disconnection. My hope is that these stories lead to women talking together, and working through their hurt and shame."

A Letter to My Mother is a very deep look at the pain of a daughters journey with her mother. The contributors are transparent about their experience, however, you will notice the healing that is taking place in their lives through the process. Ms. Robertson has done an excellent job in compiling such a powerful book and truly showing the reader how Forgiveness Heals.
