"…it reaches far beyond dates of birth, marriage and death and into the heart and soul of a woman and her family…" Multi-Award-Winning Author P.M. Terrell
What do you really know about your Mom?
Do you know what her hopes, dreams and desires were? Did she live them?
Your mom is so much more than the woman who raised you. She grew up in a time very different from yours—there were different beliefs, habits, and ways of doing things. Your mom has seen a lot in her life, getting to hear her journey will help you to understand her in a whole new light. Now is the time get to know her and to document her life. The only way to find out about your mom's story is to ask… because one day she won't be there anymore.
When we reach old age we should know our lives mattered, that we mattered, that we are loved, happy and feel connected.
This book offers a way to start conversations between you and your mom—in particular, elderly mothers. It is a guide which provides questions to ask, as well as how and when to ask them. Use this as a way to grow, heal and/or mend the relationship between mom and child; preserve this woman's journey through life and in particular her role as Mom. Her story is her legacy to you.
"…insightful questions with thought provoking examples and explanations…" Christine Jackson

I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review. Do You Know Your Mom's Story?: 365 Questions You Need to Ask Her by Glenna Mageau is not what I expected. I thought it would be just pages and pages of lists of questions. It is much more than that. It encourages you to have a conversation with your mother. It allows you to learn about your mother as a person and not just as a title, "Mom". While being a mom is a huge part of me, it is not all of me. Why do we assume that is all our mothers are? The book is broken down into categories based on subjects and different points of their lives. It includes easy to talk about memories and the incredibly difficult ones. Asking these questions honestly helped change my relationship with my mother to morph from mother and daughter to person and person. It allowed us to talk as adults, as equals, and understand each other better. Memories were shared but from two completely different points of view. I would have liked to have found something similar before my father passed away. It would have been nice to preserve his memories and thoughts of being more than just a dad.
