Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: New mothers, or mothers with young children
Q: What is the book about?
A: The Mother’s Book of Well-Being guides overwhelmed nurturers back to physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. Through my personal story, journal exercises, and suggestions for becoming “a mother of your own design,” this book gives mothers permission and tools to chisel out time, space, and place for their own needs — ensuring that they and their babies receive the care they both deserve.
Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: I’m a mother from the trenches. I’ve seen the other side of well-being. When I speak to mothers’ groups, I always tell them I wrote this book first for myself, then for others. I researched holistic health and motherhood and combine both interests in this book.
Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: The market is full of books about baby care! My book shows that infant-care and mother-care are two sides of the same miraculous process. Also, I designed my book to be read by people who have very little time. Comprised of fifty-two short chapters — one for each week of the first year of motherhood — The Mother’s Book of Well-Being is small enough to fit into a diaper bag.
Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: The Mother’s Book of Well-Being has been discussed on Georgia Public Radio, Oregon Public Broadcasting, Mom Talk Radio, and Living the Life on CBN.
It has been reviewed, mentioned, or appeared in Better Homes and Gardens, The New York Times, Mothering Magazine, Exceptional Parent, American Baby, Epregnancy, Atlanta Parent, Washington Parent, The Salt Lake Tribune, Berkeley’s Parents’ Press, Deseret News, and The Macon Telegraph. Canada’s largest parenting magazine City Parent named it one of eight “Must Read Books About Motherhood.”
Most satisfying of all, I receive email from many grateful readers.
