My Mother's Life: Mom, I Want to Know Everything About You - Give to Your Mother to Fill in with Her Memories and Return to You as a Keepsake By Chartwell Books from Quarto Knows. Record your mother's life story in this beautiful keepsake journal with 200 guided exercises and prompts that take her back through each stage of her life and its accompanying adventures.
A mother’s love is like none other and is one that can never be replaced. From unconditional support and care to tireless encouragement and compassionate understanding, mothers are our number-one fans, fearless protectors, and most inspiring heroines.
In My Mother's Life, both thought-provoking and lighthearted writing prompts and guided exercises are organized into chapters based on your mother’s life stages to help her record her life’s memoir. Beginning with early childhood, questions like What is the very earliest memory you have? Followed by early adulthood prompts such as What motivated you when you were a young woman? and then concluding with questions about the wisdom she has learned and would like to share such as What are three pieces of life advice you can give me to pass down to my own children?, the My Mother's Life journal jump starts the reflective writing process to open your mother’s mind to dig deeper into who she is, where she started, and, most importantly, what she has learned.
Complemented with poignant quotes about mothers throughout history, this beautifully designed keepsake journal will give your mother everything she needs to record her life’s experiences to not only share light on the events that shaped her into the woman she is today, but also to preserve her life’s memories and stories for you and your family to learn from, become inspired by, and cherish for future generations.
With so much of our lives and contact going digital, the Creative Keepsakes journals offer an intimate way to nurture your connection with yourself and the people around you. An entertaining way to get off your screen, these guided and free-form journals are great for writers and artists alike. Each journal offers content around a different theme, including silly prompts for a laugh, random yet thoughtful questions, an inspiration for art and composition, interactive prompts to learn about your heritage, and blank interiors on high-quality paper stock to use as your creative canvas. Beautifully designed and full of mindful prompts, channel your inspiration as you put pen (or pencil, or marker, or crayon!) to paper to learn more about yourself, your talents, and the people you love.
My Opinion: I wanted this for my mom as she is approaching 70 to leave for her grandkids and I will include some photos as well. It is nice to look inside the life of my mom even though she had a dysfunctional childhood growing up she has come along way and I am proud of her.

I really wanted to like this book. I did a fast flip through at the store before buying it, but as I dug in, I started to realize the very beginning of it reads like something from the 50s - more questions about dad (and his dad) and a lot of leaving out mom (or mom's mom). Assuming dad/granddad had a job but did Mom?ReplyDelete
Disappointing since I really did like the cover and some of the other thought out questions.
