A story of overcoming obstacles, this book reads like fiction. It is a truly inspirational story for anyone, but I especially recommend the book for women who have had challenging relationships with their own mothers.  This is an uplifting, encouraging and fast read! I couldn't put it down. Great book!

What I appreciate about this autobiography is that Claudia is transparent and honest. In her introduction, she says this her story as "she remembers it." That wasn't a disclaimer to gloss over her story. It was still very raw and a brave story. The reader can experience Claudia's hurts, failings, successes and triumphs. Many times I had to put the book down because I could feel the emotion in every word. Even though the title mentions motherhood, this book is a life story for men and women of all ages. This is book is more than an autobiographical story, it is a testimony. Claudia wrote it in a way that shares her life and the truths she discovered along the way. I was inspired at her life transformation and how her story reveals the challenges and triumphs in reconciling one's past and being fully present and successful in one's "present." Because it is written as a testimony, I believe the message will live on in every person who chooses to pay forward what they learned from Claudia sharing her life.

Great book! Mrs. Parker gives you a look inside her life from a troubled past to a bright future. Through the highes and lows her faith didn't fail. She holds on to God's unchanging hand. This should be required reading for new Christians and non-believers. This books makes you examine your own life and also your faith. This book insipires me and will be one I turn to when I feel my faith wavering.

This is a phenomenal book. This is the kind of book that is hard to put down. It is inspirational and thought provoking. The details provided by Claudia Parker made me think, cheer, laugh and cry. I was speechless after reading the last page. Claudia Parker connects with the reader by sharing details that most people are not willing to share about their adversities. It has renewed my faith that anything is possible in the face of extraordinary challenges. "Becoming a Mother While Losing My Own" has inspired me to not allow negative circumstances to run my life. Claudia Parker taught me things about myself just by sharing her story in this book. She makes it easy to see yourself in her great moments and difficult moments. I am more motivated to step up and improve myself spiritually, mentally and physically. This book has shown me that God works with us through the good and bad times. Her spiritual maturity and encouragement throughout the book has helped to awaken me to pursue my purpose in life and treasure the people that I have in my life. The inspiration and motivation of this book has caused me to challenge myself to write two books before the end of 2013. There are some tough life decisions that I had to make as I read this book. Claudia Parker's narrative had a way of encouraging me through all of those decisions. As a result, I trusted God more to provide for my wife and me as we decided to start our own business. This story gave me an extra nudge to tell my wife that she does not have to go back to work if she desires to stay home with our children. Finally, I am motivated to overcome a 50 pound lifting restriction that a doctor placed on me years ago. I am hitting the gym to gradually build my muscle strength.
