Overview

In this unique, profoundly inspirational memoir, Divorce Court star Judge Lynn Toler shares her mother’s wisdom for learning to conquer anger and become immune to insult. Toler credits her mother’s “rules” for life – a life that saw her grow up the daughter of a poor teen mother and endure a husband who suffered mental illness and alcoholism – with providing the grounding for her own success and happiness. Toler shows how the mindset of “a black woman who knew how to make things work” taught her the power of knowing how to manage one’s emotional business—lessons that this book offers in wrenching stories written in spare and graceful prose. My Mother’s Rules is an unforgettable book that will captivate readers with its illustrations of how to rise above the most difficult circumstances and find peace and success in life.

I'm still in the middle of reading this book. I'm taking my time in ensuring that I take note of truly learn from what Judge Lynn Toler speaks of her experiences. I have been able to apply some of what I've read to my own life and I must say, I do feel a better person out of it. If you have things in your life history or present that you want to make a positive experience... then take a read... you won't be disappointed.
