Research project

Living Faith: Everyday Religion and Mothers in Poverty

Based on survey data analysis and interviews with women and pastors, this project explores personal faith and organized religion in the lives of low-income urban mothers. While rejecting a reductive notion of religion in poor women's lives, Sullivan argues that both organized and personal religion can provide important resources to poor urban mothers facing difficult challenges.
