**Giveaway will go through Tuesday 5/25**My mom tucked this book in my carry on last year after a fun girl getaway with my sisters in Utah.
She loved reading Linda Eyre’s books (one of her favorites was I Didn't Plan To Be A Witch) as she was raising all 7 of us and was excited to see that she wrote one with her daughter, Shawni called A Mother's Book of Secrets
I began to read it on the plane on my way home and loved the fresh, honest, practical advice Shawni and her mom give. One of my favorite quotes in the book is this:
“As far as I’m concerned, one of the silliest bits of “wisdom” ever imparted to parents goes like this: ‘Children are like lumps of clay, and parents are the sculptors.’ This leads parent to believe that with the proper time and influence children can be shaped in to whatever parents would like them to be. So not true!
I’d rather think of children as seedlings. Even though tiny seedlings look very similar as they sprout, in the end they will become who they are…A sunflower can’t be changed to an apple no matter how hard you try! The secret to how well each little seedling grows to become its best self depends on the gardener giving it the appropriate light, water, fertilizer, and love.
(-Linda Eyre, p. 99 A Mother’s Book of Secrets)
And since I love this book so much and want to help get the word out about the I Love Lucy project, we’re giving away 2 books! Just leave a comment, and we’ll announce the winners next week!
Thank you, Shawni, Linda, and Lucy~
Have a wonderful weekend!
