Passport 2 Purity ~ Heart to Heart time with your teen or preteen~ #REVIEW #PASSPORT2PURITY #FLYBY

With the Passport2Purity Getaway Kit we as parents have the opportunity to take our teen or preteen aside and spend one-on-one time helping them see the dangers ahead and teaching them ways to deal with what is to come.  I took the time to look through the materials in the

Mom Rings in the New 2014 with a To Do Task List - What is your 2014 going to bring?

Ok it is the very first day of a brand New Year - and what am I doing?  Searching the internet to help me decide what my "New Year's Resolutions" will be and how I can actually achieve them.  After finding that I have been online for nearly 3 hours, I've finally come to the realization that making "resolutions" is the wrong way for me to start my New Year (plus getting off the computer might be a good place to start as well - lol)

So, starting now, I am working on a more reasonable "New Year's Task List" that I will check off as I accomplish each little Step of Each Task - making smaller goals that are easier to achieve and give a sense of accomplishment and purpose to start out this 2014!

Task #1 - Take Care of My Needs

As a Stay At Home Mom in a One income Family - I usually ignore my personal wants and sometimes even my needs in order to take care of

Sticky Icky Booger Bugs ~ a day in the life of a little boy with Cystic Fibrosis ~ Review & Giveaway on Mom Loves 2 Read

There are 30,000 children each year diagnosed and battling cystic fibrosis. There is no cure for this progressive disease. Sticky Icky Booger Bugs is the tale of a boy's battle with cystic fibrosis as he attempts to avoid the hospital. 

Kory is just like any other child. He loves recess, playing soccer and exploring his neighborhood with his best friend. With every puff, cough, and sneeze, Kory keeps the sticky icky booger bugs away so he can have fun every day!

My Review :
This is a wonderful book to explain to children and parents what it is like to live every day with Cystic Fibrosis.  I love how Kory explains his daily schedule and that other than the sticky icky booger bugs, he is like nearly every other kid his age who enjoys soccer and playing with his friends.  He can run and play, he just has to take special care of his body so he can breathe better.

Bringing in Finn Review ~ an amazing story of miraculous birth and the love of family

Bringing in Finn is an incredibly moving story of surrogacy and how it created a bond like no other between a mother and daughter

In February 2011, 61-year-old Kristine Casey delivered the greatest gift of all to her daughter, Sara Connell: Sara’s son, Finnean. At that moment, Kristine—the gestational carrier of Sara and her husband Bill’s child—became the oldest woman ever to give birth in Chicago. 

Bringing in Finn: An Extraordinary Surrogacy Story tells this modern family’s remarkable surrogacy story.

After trying to conceive naturally without success, Sara and her husband Bill dedicated years to a variety of fertility treatments—but after Sara lost a third pregnancy (including the loss of twins at twenty-two weeks), they started to give up their hope. When Kristine offered to be their surrogate, they were shocked; but Kristine was clear that helping Sara become a mother felt like a calling, something she felt inspired to do.

In this achingly honest memoir, Connell recounts the tragedy and heartbreak of losing pregnancies; the process of opening her heart and mind to the idea of her sixty-one-year-old mother carrying her child for her; and the profound bond that blossomed between mother and daughter as a result of their unique experience together.

Mom Loves 2 Read welcomes Author Eleanor Vincent as today's Guest

Today on Mom Loves 2 Read, I welcome Author Eleanor Vincent to share a little for my readers of her experience with Grief Recovery . . .

Reflections on Grief Recovery

It’s been 21 years since my 19-year-old daughter Maya was thrown from a horse and went into an irreversible coma. Healing my grief over Maya’s death has liberated me in ways beyond what I could ever have imagined. The worst has already happened. What is left to fear?

Swimming with Maya is a crisis memoir that plumbs deeply the intense shock, grief, and anger that followed in the wake of my daughter’s accidental death. What I wrote in those pages continues to move and amaze me.

As I prepared to reissue Swimming with Maya in e-book and paperback format last spring, I read page

The Goodbye Year by Toni Piccinini ~ Loving support for soon-to-be Empty Nesters.

The Goodbye Year is an inspirational, honest, and hilarious tale of Toni’s approach to the end of an era in the Piccinini household.

For many mothers, a child’s senior year brings about a serious look back on the past eighteen. Every event—from Halloween to Mother’s Day—becomes The Last Time.

Toni Piccinini knows exactly what that’s like, and in
The Goodbye Year, she offers the loving support every soon-to-be Empty Nester needs. Think of Toni as your bossy-but-loving Italian auntie, with modern sensibilities and a packed pantry. With the wisdom she’s acquired from saying goodbye three times to her own children, she reassuringly holds your hand while encouraging you through the insanity of the college application process, the rejections and the acceptances, and the teary dorm drop-offs. Even better, she reminds every mother that the best is yet to come—freedom, creativity, flexibility, and the Me Years.
