This site is a cool place to connect with others mothers.

I'm looking for parents interested in reviewing my book, "Raising Able: how chores cultivate capable young people."

Also known as "Do I have to? How chores brat-proof families."

email me for a review copy. You'll learn how chores empower your children and you can retire as the house servant!

Hello and Happy November, Junior Magazine!

There is a profound pressure placed on young girls in current day society based on their image: the need be thin, beautiful and appealing. Instead of looking to serve others, the focus is constantly on "me!" The struggle of peer pressure emerges and girls strive for whatever it takes to be well liked and popular. They fear walking the road less traveled because, to them, it appears to be the lonely road. Girls fear failure. Due to this fear, we oftentimes see far too many girls let life pass them by as they ‘go with the flow.' One will find that as you look back upon your life, the moments that stand out are the ones when you have done things for others. Oftentimes, people forget to think beyond themselves. It is our desire for "Megan Hearts" to empower girls to try new activities and as they gain knowledge and skills, learn to recognize the importance of using them for benefits that reach beyond themselves.

My sister and I just finished "Megan Hearts Baking," the first book of the Megan Hearts series devoted to helping inspire and empower young girls (ages 5-9) to explore new hobbies and create new goals.

In the book, Megan has been invited to a birthday party and she wants to bring her favorite treat-- cupcakes! But Megan is nervous about making them, for her last baking adventure sadly ended in a baking fiasco. What will she do? Join Megan and her mom on this sweet endeavor as, together, they learn how to bake the most delicious cupcake with just a few simple steps: finding a recipe, creating a shopping list, understanding measurements and measuring utensils, rules of kitchen safety, the finishing touches, and, at last, sharing the tasty treats with friends and family! Become engaged, as Megan gains confidence from working through mistakes, experiences joy while discovering her special strengths and abilities, and develops a love for learning- the sweetest treat of all!

At the end of the book are biographies of real life people that have used their passion for baking to open cupcake shops around the United States. The following cupcake shops are featured in the book: Cake and Art (West Hollywood), Sprinkles (Texas and Newport Beach), Magnolia Bakery (New York), Cupcake Project (online blog) and Frosted Cupcakery in Long Beach :) The reason for these bios are to empower young girls to dream big!

I'm writing to find out if you would be interested in reading some of the story story? I would love to get your personal opinion:) And if possible, is there a way of getting a review or mention of this book in your magazine.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to hearing back!!!!
