The story of how The Mother Letters came about is best told by Amber and Seth Haines themselves. You can read Seth's explanation if you click on the "Look Inside" option over at the Amazon listing. Once the "Look Inside" window opens, scroll slowly past the Table of Contents to the Preface, where Seth tells how he curated letters from Amber's friends and family members, and her favorite authors and bloggers. I was honored to be asked.
If you keep scrolling, you'll get Amber's perspective, and then, believe it or not, without paying a dime, you can read my contribution, entitled "Blink."
Now, I said you didn't have to pay a dime to read my letter, but the book is filled with letters from over 30 different moms. Why not treat a young mom in your life (or yourself!) to a book of letters written by moms encouraging moms?
Mother's Day is coming up. The Mother Letters would be a great gift.
Well, The Mother Letters ... and a copy of The Contemplative Mom! 😉
Wait, did you know?
Yes, the Kindle version of my book The Contemplative Mom (Revised Edition) is already available! It's not prepped for Kobo or Nook, and the physical book (softcover) is still in production, but you can grab the Kindle version right now.
"Blink," in The Mother Letters, and the release of the revised edition of The Contemplative Mom both remind me how quickly time flies and how important it is to slow down and take time for what matters most.
By the way, Seth and Amber invite others to contribute to the Mother Letters project. You can write a letter of your own and publish it on your blog, then visit Amber's Mother Letters page, where you can link up (scroll down a little and you'll see "Share Your Letter").
If you're a weary mom, I hope you receive some encouragement today. And if you know a weary mom, remind her she is not alone.
