Format: Paperback
If you want heartfelt testimonial about how to raise well-adjusted children and still follow your bliss, Writer Mom Tales: Corralling the Commotion while Savoring the Chaos, Spilled Cheerios, and Prayers of Real-Life Motherhood is a must-read. And who better than a mother of five to tell the tales of roller coaster parenting, pulling time from very thin air and tapping stores of energy you didn't know you had. Seigneur's tales are filled with wit, wisdom and a burning desire to keep her writing muse alive amid the chaos of raising children who include twin boys and cover an age span of more than a decade. Her stories cover guilt laced with giggles, a spirituality that gives her strength through the bad moments, and gratitude for the good times as she charts her journey through motherhood.

Needing much sleep after an exciting day visiting with my new little granddaughter, I found myself glued to the book in my hand!! "WriterMom Tales" made me laugh out loud at 2am while my precious family was fast asleep in the bedrooms next to me. I visualized Cornelia's son's legs draped over her shoulders while she was trying to write. The love she has for her children is deeply felt in her creative and descriptive writing. The upfront and honest approach to parenthood gave me hope that there are other moms out there feeling the same way each of us do that are doing our best to raise a family. I bought the book for my daughter and her husband and my new daughter-in-law and my son.... IT IS A MUST READ FOR PARENTS OF ANY AGE!!

In Writer Mom Tales: Corralling the Commotion while Savoring the Chaos, Spilled Cheerios, and Prayers of Real-Life Motherhood, Cornelia Seigneur will make you laugh and make you cry, as she takes you through the joys and trials of raising five healthy, active children.

Covering everything from the dinner hour, to the value of tradition, she is equally honest about the guilt moms so often feel. Seigneur tells it like it is, all the while stressing the importance of deliberate parenting.

This book is a must read.

Raising good children in these challenging times can be done. Author Cornelia Seigneir has proven that love, prayer, nurturing, guidance and values (not to mention leading by example) can result in happy, well-adjusted children.

WriterMom Tales captures the daily ups and downs that challenge and shape her and her children's lives. Seigneur offers an inspirational look into her experiences in raising five children the good old fashioned way.
