As I have journeyed and fumbled my way through motherhood, there are few seasoned moms I have met along the way that I would love to sit for hours over coffee to engage in honest, authentic dialogue about the struggle to do what it takes to be passionate, loving moms. Susan Merrill is one of those rare and real women. This book flows not just out of head knowledge, but out of the soul of real parenting from the real trenches of Susan's life.
