Did you ever wish you'd written down the words of wisdom from your mother? Do you sometimes hear those words in your head when you're facing a problem, working on a relationship, or making an important decision? Many of us who had great mothers have lived by their wisdom for all of our lives. Their little sayings and sound bites echo in our ears and guide us in our choices, our demeanor, and when we're trying to figure out the meaning of the world! Many of the quotations in this book come from the author's mother, Agnes Katherine Graebner Seger, who had wisdom and an intrinsic ability to assess and analyze a situation. She was positive, supportive, and encouraging. The author then collected sayings from other magnificent mothers. All the sayings are original to each of these mothers. Each topic in the book is illustrated by Colorado artist, Linda Crawford.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
What Our Mamas Taught Us is a little book filled with a lot of love. Linda Seger recorded, within two covers, sayings from the "mamas" in her life. Included in this is her own mama, grandmother and aunts. The book is broken down into sections such as Adventure, Money, Problem and so on. It is a book of comfort for when you cannot hear your own mothers words of encouragement or advice. For a small book it packed a cartload of love. Anyone who loves the words that others have shared with them throughout their lives would love this book. I was given this book by bookfun.org, the author and Haven books in exchange for my honest review.
