If I died tomorrow will my child be okay? This is a question I find myself asking almost everyday. Food, clothing and shelter are not at stake. I simply wanted a means to communicate.

Each day as my child grow; there are life's lessons that he will need to know. This is why I very carefully wrote Momma's Life Lessons. The more one knows the more one grows.

As I was writing, I began to think about how I learned these lessons. Many of these lessons, I learned as a young adult myself, from my mother and other lessons, I learned from some other young adults going through some critical stage in their life.

At this point, I began to realize that not only could my child benefit from this book but other young adults as well.

There may be parents or other guardians that may not share with their children as much as they would like and this book given as a gift or maybe housed in a library or bookstore may be just what a child would like. This book will help communicate life's lessons whether it's shared with a child by an adult or whether a child just happens to stumble upon it on their own. Still, there will be many lessons our children must learn on their own.
