Book Review – EAT YOUR PEAS for MOM!

Featuring:

She’s been there since the beginning, always by your side when you need her. She is the glue that holds everything together, your biggest cheerleader. No one can compare…she is Mom! -ALSNS

My mom is my very best friend. She always has been, I can tell her anything and everything! I’ve been truly blessed with the most understanding, loving and caring mom! There are so many thank you’s I want to give her, so many words of love I want to tell her.

I was thrilled to be given the oppertunity to review and share EAT YOUR PEAS for Mom : a 3 minute forever book (the newest book from Cheryl Karpen)

Mom’s heart will smile through the pages filled with affirmation, appreciation, and gratitude expressed for all the ways she loves and cares for you. Each page is artfully hand-illustrated for a charming and homespun feel. It’s a perfect keepsake and reminder for Mom to hold onto forever. Available at http://www.amazon.com/ and at selected retail stores.

My Q and A with Cheryl Karpen…

Which book is your favorite?

That’s a tough question because so many of the titles have woven their way into my heart! Although I have never had children (biologically, that is). I love the art and sentiments in Eat Your Peas for New Moms and I can hardly wait until it is published in the new hardcover keepsake edition by Thomas Nelson. New mothers need and deserve all the cheering on they can get!

Okay, here’s another favorite. I wrote Eat Your Peas for Moms (not to be confused with New Moms) as a love letter to my own mother. When Mom read it for the first time she broke down and cried (a rarity in front of her kids) and told me she was glad she lived long enough to hear the words in that book. She’ll turn age 90 in a couple of weeks.

Have you ever thought about doing a book for Mother’s of Multiples or Parent’s of Multiples for that matter?

Any title is worth considering. Thank you for the idea!

Where does your inspiration come from?

My inspiration comes from listening to people’s stories: their dreams, aspirations, heartaches, sorrows and their joys. Including my own.

Then as my children grow I can look back at my special memory book, and smile thinking about how blessed I am as a Mom of my little ones! As a daughter. I could write personal message to my Mom, a memory, a thought, or something inspirational for her. In the case of my Mom, she would love something as simple as a doodle, we have alway shared a love for art, she is who taught me to draw! Wow, the possibilities are endless!
