Mom for the Holidays is filled with stories by and for moms to enjoy over the holidays (and it includes a holiday planner)! The tales will make you laugh, shed a tear or two, and feel connected to other moms who are going through both the struggles and the jubilations of everyday life with children during the holiday season. And although we live in different parts of the world, in different houses (and we have different shoe styles), we have one common thread: we are all moms for the holidays! (If you are not a mom, welcome to our world!)

"A good antidote for Pinterest perfect holidays . . . . The stories provide instant relief for when the tree lights black out over and over, or when someone is pouting on Santa's lap." ~Wise Owl Factory

"Everyone wants it to be a wonderful, heartwarming holiday. But, [there are] highs and lows and tenderness and tantrums that make up the reality." ~Lileredone

"This book is a great read jam packed with fun holiday stories! I enjoyed having a peek into these writers' holiday family traditions. Some of the stories were sweet, while others made me all the more grateful for my own family!" ~Leigh

"If you are looking for Martha Stewart picture perfect Christmas memoirs, keep going. If you love down-to-earth tales about real families, perfectly imperfect children (the best kind) and a family whose goose is cooked, this is for you." ~AC

"In the midst of over the top Elf on the Shelf, baking disasters, and all the other bizarre family traditions, these moms keep their sense of humor through it all . . . . perfect blend of wit, sarcasm, and reminiscing. Grab your cup of cocoa or glass of wine and snuggle up with your own copy to weave your way through the coming months with a smile on your face." ~Bambini Travel

"Mom for the Holidays is a candid peek into the homes and hearts of moms, young and old; a glimpse into the lives of today's hurried moms; a nostalgic peek into the past of moms whose babies have babies of their own. Mom for the Holidays is a refreshingly honest, contemporary blend of humorous, heart touching, tell-it-like-it-is stories. Imagine a group of moms sitting around sharing their true feelings about the holiday season: the good, the bad, the real, the happy, the sad . . . . Moms of all ages will enjoy this anthology." ~William J. O'Connell
