It’s the official launch day of my new book I Need Some Help Here! Hope for When Your Kids Don’t Go According to Plan.
This book is for every mom out there who has ever doubted herself, wondered why her child didn’t “turn out” the way she thought he would, or is feeling alone in her mothering journey. Whether your kids are little or young adults, motherhood can be so difficult (but eventually rewarding, I promise).
To celebrate the launch with my fabulous readers, fans and community, I want to give a book away every hour from 6a-8p PST on June 3, 2014. I would love your help in spreading the word of hope to your friends and family as well. So feel free to pick a tweet, Pin or picture to share with your peeps on your favorite social media site. We’ll pick a new winner every hour. If you just want to enter to win, you can do that too by filling out the entry form below.
