For My Children Mother's Journal

Stars: ★★★★★

To anyone who has lost their mother and wishes they had asked her more questions or gotten to know her more before she died, you will appreciate this book more. Whether a mother lives till the ripe old age of 110 or passes young, her children and grandchildren would always be appreciative of knowing the details of their mother’s life.

For the mother, the act of writing down memories, wishes, thoughts, stories and wisdom for future generations is a great feeling.

This journal is not like your average journal with black and white blank pages with lined paper. The problem with those is that you sit with your pen and go “um… I’m not sure what to write.”

The For My Children journal is full colour, hardcover with prompts such as these:

What do you wish you had known as a new mother?

In what ways are your children like you?

List some of the strangest things you have done as a parent?

What lasting impact or impression would you like to leave on the world?

What quotes, poems or scriptures have been inspiration to you?

What fears have you conquered?

I am very happy that I can record my thoughts in this book for my children to share. Now I just have to find the time. You can easily sit down with the book when you have a few moments to yourself, flip through till one prompt resonates with you and start writing.

Where You Can Find the Author:

Her Blog Code Name: Mama, Facebook CodeNameMama and Twitter @codenamemama

So now I leave you with a prompt from the book to answer in the comments:

Everyone has an indulgence… what are yours?
