  1. I am amazed every day as I watch my sons become young men. It takes my breath away to listen to their view of the world, to witness the depth of their spirit and to share their journey with them. I feel so blessed to have been given the gift of their sweet lives for this time and pray that I gift them with the freedom to grow in love and grace as God has planned. I hope with my every fiber that they would hold tightly to that which is good and true and know when something that glitters is not gold. What a privilege this ride called motherhood is!!!

  2. I would love to win this book. I am always drawn to book about mothers and daughters. I think being a daughter and now a mother allows me to have additional insight into the relationship.

    I already subscribe to the newsletter.

  3. As a mother of a 10 year old SON, I am finding this relationship to be more intense than I imagined. He isn’t dealing with all the “girl” issues at school, but his energy and his sensitivity make for an interesting mix.

    Am looking forward to reading the Kidds’ book!

  4. My mum just turned 70 this year and my sisters and I planned a big party for her. It was quite a challenge because one of my sisters lives on the West Coast, the other on the East Coast (which is where my mum lives too) and I’m in Quebec, sort of in the middle. The best part for me (other than the party) was the conference calls my sisters and I had to plan the party, which also led us to talk about our childhoods and shared things we still do that we learned from our mum (positive and negative). The party rocked!

    I’m already a subscriber. Thanks for this giveaway. It’s incredible how alike Sue and Ann look!

  5. I am dying to read this book since the author is from South Carolina. As a daughter and a mother, I think you never really appreciate your mother until you have children of your own.

  6. I would love to win this book! I can’t believe how much my relationship with my mom is still changing. It seems like the older we get the more we have to face! And I though adolescence was challenging!

  7. Sounds like a very interesting book. I have complicated feelings about my mother. But, find that becoming a mother myself helped me sort out that she was just a woman with flaws, but great assets too. It’s unfortunate that she didn’t live until I had my epiphany.

  8. This lovely book sounds so appealing and special. My mother was a giving and selfless woman whom I miss dearly each and everyday. Being a mother has taught me a great deal about the important things in life. Treasure every minute of this wonderful time.

  9. I think motherhood is one of the toughest jobs to do. I have no children, but I marvel at the relationships my sister & sister-in-law have with their children. I look at the sacrifices they make on a daily basis so that their children can become good people.

    From my perspective, I think the mother/daughter relationship is the one that shapes your whole life. My mother became my best friend & still is today. She has always been there for me & has supported all my endeavors in life.

  10. I want to read it! I am still trying to find a healthly relationship with my Mom and then know how to cultivate that with my kids. And advice or examples are welcome. And to read about that while reading about the great places they traveled would be a treat.
