A Letter for Every Mother by Kara Lawler and Regan Long is an exquisite collection of essays that shows the joys, struggles, and humorous moments associated with parenting. The book is a great reminder that everyone encounters problems, but that being a mother is a blessed honor. It also provides a good dose of advice for various situations related to parenting (and marriage).
One of my favorite essays was “Dear Perfect Mother,” which encourages us to strive for our own version of “perfect.” The variety of essays offer something for everyone, but will especially resonate with mothers of young children. The authors write in a down-to-earth, relatable way. As the reader, you feel like you are rooting for the authors – and that they are rooting for you!
