I originally wrote Excerpts from the Heart of a Mom as a gift to my son. I cherish being a mother and parent with a completely open heart. In my role as a mom, I’ve adopted several philosophies that help me to challenge myself to be better, remain open, and constantly learn. My book contains 25 of these concepts that parents can apply to whatever parenting style feels right to them. I believe these concepts allow parents to tap into and foster their child’s innate and profound wisdom and help their children remain connected to their core or authentic selves. This book is not meant to be read as a “how to”, but rather I hope evokes the image of two moms chatting over coffee sharing stories. My intention is to inspire mothers to open their minds and hearts and most of all to be willing to realize that there can be a different way to parent, which brings great fulfillment, fun, and peace.
