Book Giveaway: Amazing Mom

Moms do incredible things every day. Children may not always know why their mom is amazing but my book Amazing Mom tells the story. “When I hurt myself…..she makes me better. When I am lonely, she comforts me.”

This Mother’s Day, I will celebrate the “amazing” event that my saved my life —  the birth of my son. I attribute my son’s birth as the moment that saved my life.  After childbirth, I experienced complications which brought me to visit the doctor. My doctor discovered swollen lymph nodes and I was later diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, stage four.

The news was devastating.

When reading the book I wrote, “Amazing Mom”, to my son, I realized it was far more important not to mourn my diagnosis but to celebrate the joyful moments of motherhood every day as I shared these experiences with my son and helped him grow and learn.

I believe that if it wasn’t for my son, doctors would not have discovered my illness. I look forward to sharing Amazing Mom with “Amazing Moms” everywhere who care for their children daily. All moms face adversity and challenges. Why should my challenges be any different?

With full color illustrations of a mom and her son, many of the 100 “sight words” or words children need to recognize easily when reading are included in the text. Amazing Mom is designed for the beginning reader with learning activities for parents, grandparents, and teachers to use to assist in practicing sight words.

Moms, dads, grandparents and teachers will find the flashcards and word list helpful in teaching new readers to recognize “sight words”.

I am a mother living with cancer, however; I know that the love and rewards of motherhood will see me through the difficult times. I hope this book allows you to celebrate with your child and provides you courage during your challenging times.

In honor of Mother’s Day, we are giving away one copy of Amazing Mom to one lucky Momma.  To enter, tell us in the comments — What is your “amazing” story?    We will randomly select one winner after Friday at 5pm.

If you want to give a Mom a copy of this book for Mother’s Day, you can order it here.

    I’m not sure I have an amazing story… I’m a nurse and a full-time student, and I have 2 boys. I struggled with infertility with both my little guys and I hope that they always know how much they were wanted. I think we all do what we have to do. I work hard to make sure I can play with my boys who I love more than life.

    This sounds like a great book. I like that sight words are incorporated. While I don’t have an amazing story that I’m willing to share online, I think it’s safe to say that every mom has one (or two or three!).

  3. If “amazing” can be in the form of subtle changes, then I suppose my amazing story is simply that having children took away my quick temper and need for perfection. The act of becoming a mom taught me humility and patience in a way I never would have imagined.

  4. My amazing story is not truly amazing like yours… but I guess a major accomplishment I had is that I moved states with my husband and then 2-year-old son. I moved away from my own mom and allll of my huge extended family. I do not have any of my own family nearby and I’ve managed to have two other children, work full-time, and created a great relationship with my in-laws. It feels amazing to be a grown up and to do all of this without the supportive network of my own family so readily available!
