Download and read online Momma Why in PDF and EPUB "Her name is Diane Jones. Today her presence is calm and warm. I knew her as a quiet, terrified child struggling to grow up, nay, even to stay alive in a large violent matriarchal family. There was no father figure, only a sequence of men. Diane was thirteen years old when I first met her. Through a program in the California Department of Social Services, I had been assigned to be Big Sister to a younger sister of Diane. This younger sister was also badly abused both in maternal violence and in sexual abuse, as was Diane, but to a much lesser degree. I thought of Diane's mother as a raging bull with massive mood swings from manipulative and charming to a cruel, mean and evil woman. I myself was afraid of her. If I had known what was really going on during the years I worked with the family, I would not have had the power to do anything about it. My only hope and motivation at that time was to give them a view of what life was like from a different perspective and thus help them be kinder to their children. I am always appalled by the fact that Social Services felt it was best to keep children connected to their families no matter how monstrous the evil in the home. Twenty-six years later, we are all wiser." –MELANIE TAYLOR

Download and read online Finding Momma s Notebook in PDF and EPUB How many times have you been in a real life situation and had someone tell you, “God will not put more on you than you can handle”? These are not just words; this is a promise that is in God’s Word—a promise from the creator of the entire universe, a promise from God who sent His Son to die for our sins so that we could have a real relationship with Him, a faithful and merciful Father who will not give us more than we can endure. Only through faith, fasting, and the love of God can we endure life altering events such as sicknesses of both parents. Also holding them as God reaches down to bring your Momma to Heaven and then two weeks later holding your Daddy as again God reaches down and brings him home to Him and Momma. Parents dying in the arms of their daughter can only be endured by faith…and that is God’s awesome mercy and amazing grace. And in that is the promise of God saying “You can handle this.” Author Cindy Nelson Smith lived these words as she and her family watched her parents go through the sicknesses and various trials and pain and broken hearts that life can bring. Only a loving and merciful Father can bring you through these and all things in life. It is a promise that He will not let us go through anything without Him and His helper, the Holy Spirit, as well as the sacrifice and ever-present love of His Son, Jesus. It’s a promise that will not change and will last forever through in any situation. Life is not easy; Jesus even told us that. Even so, we are not alone, ever. We have to trust in the promises of God. He will help us, love us, and guide us; He will not give us more than we can endure. God doesn’t break His promises, and that’s a promise too.

Download and read online Momma s Life Lessons in PDF and EPUB If I died tomorrow will my child be okay? This is a question I find myself asking almost everyday. Food, clothing and shelter are not at stake. I simply wanted a means to communicate. Each day as my child grow; there are life's lessons that he will need to know. This is why I very carefully wrote Momma's Life Lessons. The more one knows the more one grows. As I was writing, I began to think about how I learned these lessons. Many of these lessons, I learned as a young adult myself, from my mother and other lessons, I learned from some other young adults going through some critical stage in their life. At this point, I began to realize that not only could my child benefit from this book but other young adults as well. There may be parents or other guardians that may not share with their children as much as they would like and this book given as a gift or maybe housed in a library or bookstore may be just what a child would like. This book will help communicate life's lessons whether it's shared with a child by an adult or whether a child just happens to stumble upon it on their own. Still, there will be many lessons our children must learn on their own.

Download and read online Momma Zen in PDF and EPUB Combining humor, honesty, and plainspoken advice, Momma Zen distills the doubts and frustrations of parenting into vignettes of Zen wisdom. Drawing on her experience as a first-time mother, and on her years of Zen meditation and study, Miller explores how the daily challenges of parenthood can become the most profound spiritual journey of our lives. This compelling and wise memoir follows the timeline of early motherhood from pregnancy through toddlerhood. Momma Zen takes readers on a transformative journey, charting a mother’s growth beyond naive expectations and disorientation to finding fulfillment in ordinary tasks, developing greater self-awareness and acceptance—to the gradual discovery of "maternal bliss," a state of abiding happiness and ease that is available to us all. In her gentle and reassuring voice, Karen Miller convinces us that ancient and authentic spiritual lessons can be as familiar as a lullaby, as ordinary as pureed peas, and as frequent as a sleepless night. She offers encouragement for the hard days, consolation for the long haul, and the lightheartedness every new mom needs to face the crooked path of motherhood straight on.
