Dear Mom- Review and Book Giveaway



With Mother's Day upon us, I wanted to share with you a wonderful book that moms would enjoy reading. "Dear Mom", a great practical guide to having a good relationship with your teenage daughter, is written with wit, wisdom, humor and honesty. WaterBrook Press/Multnomah Books invited me on the Mother's Day Blog Tour and I am so glad I said yes. Thanks to WaterBrook, I can offer one copy of the book to giveaway!

Who is Melody Carlson? What is Dear Mom all about?

"Melody Carlson is an accomplished Christian author for children, pre-teens, youth and adult with sales totaling more than two million."

I found the paperback book a quick read. Melody Carlson's style of writing drew me in immediately. I found myself reading a letter and actually enjoying the dialogue between a mom and her teenager. Why do you ask? Because I could relate. And that 's what makes this book so successful. There is a universal theme here that many, many moms with teenage daughters can relate to... and vice versa. Dear Mom is a bridge to understanding, healing of relationships and providing a bridge of hope to a very important mother-daughter relationship!

Book Points for Mom:

* Good Listener
* Stable and Honest
* Be Consistent
* Help Me Express Myself


Book Points for Teenage Daughter:

* I'm Watching You
* Help Me Become More Confident
* I Am Not You
* Things I'll Never Say When I'm a Mom


There are some great treasures of good advice for cultivating a better understanding of one another with good communication skills on both parts in this wonderful book, Dear Mom! 5 Stars
