If you saw my post yesterday on Facebook you know I was dancing in my sweat pants over here. “The Mean Mom’s Guide to Raising Great Kids” has been contracted.
How cool is that? For years, I’ve been thinking of putting together something fun and encouraging for all of us sweet moms who struggle at laying down boundaries with our adorable little angels.
I have talked to LOTS of parents who really could use a little inspiration for those times when it’s tough to be tough.
So, here’s the deal, I have ten weeks to write this book.
Thankfully, I have quite a bit written already- but just knowing this deadline is fast approaching is a little daunting. Okay, ALOT daunting. There’s no way I can do this without your help. No way.
Why? Because, in my humble mama-opinion, I’d much rather read a book that has LOADS of other mama’s sharing what works and what doesn’t for them. I don’t want to read a book where an author pines on and on about her ivy tower-education, perfect kids and how great she is at parenting.
That’s definitely not me – or my kids.
With that said, precious friends, I
am begging would LOVE your help.
I’m going to begin a private Facebook focus group this weekend. Over the next ten weeks you don’t need to do anything more than answer questions I may have from time to time. I’d love a team of moms willing to be my sounding board when I need confirmation that what I’m writing will resonate with other moms.
And, if you’re willing, I’ll be asking for quotes and even personal stories to include. How much or how little you participate is completely up to you.
Please share this blog post with your Facebook friends, Tweet it, Pin it, send homing pigeons, smoke signals and help me get the word out. God has blessed all of us with this opportunity and I want to use it for His glory.

I’ll add you to the focus group by Sunday evening. I sure hope you come along for this ride!
