About the Author
A graduate of Northwestern University with a Masters degree from Cal State University Northridge, Lisa is a literacy coach in Los Angeles. She is an advocate for peace and womens rights with interests in yoga, Buddhism and philosophy. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, knitting, and piano as well as spending time with her partner, Matthew, and her dog, Sierra.
David Danioth dedicated his first book, The Tree, to "All mothersthe givers and unconditional nurturers of life." So presented with the opportunity to illustrate A Mothers Promise, how could he refuse? The poetry of Lisa Humphrey's words touched Davids soul and flowed through his brush onto the pages of this remarkable book, evoking the sacred nature within us all.
The Art Institute of Seattle is proud to include David on their faculty where he guides emerging artists toward their goals. When hes not at school or in his own studio, David can most likely be spotted on a soccer field or the seat of a bicycle on the road somewhere.

When I first noticed that David Danioth had illustrated this book, I knew right away that it would be beautifully done. Mr. Danioth's talent knows no bounds. Then, as I read A Mother's Promise, my heart was filled with a tenderness that is hard to explain. This feeling of sensitivity and softness was enhanced by the stunning illustrations, which were so realistic that I wanted to reach my fingers out to caress the baby's tiny face.
While preparing to bring new life into the world, mothers everywhere whisper promises to their unborn child. They know that the world can be a perilous place, with unknown terrors, but promises that come directly from an adoring heart become inspiring and hopeful messages of love.
*****This awe-inspiring book is guaranteed to stir memories in the heart of every mother, and will become a treasure that can be handed down to every child.*****
