“…it reaches far beyond dates of birth, marriage and death and into the heart and soul of a woman and her family…” Multi-Award-Winning Author P.M. Terrell

What do you really know about your Mom?

Do you know what her hopes, dreams and desires were? Did she live them?

Your mom is so much more than the woman who raised you. She grew up in a time very different from yours—there were different beliefs, habits, and ways of doing things. Your mom has seen a lot in her life, getting to hear her journey will help you to understand her in a whole new light. Now is the time get to know her and to document her life. The only way to find out about your mom’s story is to ask… because one day she won’t be there anymore.

When we reach old age we should know our lives mattered, that we mattered, that we are loved, happy and feel connected.

This book offers a way to start conversations between you and your mom—in particular, elderly mothers. It is a guide which provides questions to ask, as well as how and when to ask them. Use this as a way to grow, heal and/or mend the relationship between mom and child; preserve this woman’s journey through life and in particular her role as Mom. Her story is her legacy to you.

What Others are Saying:

“Asking these questions honestly helped change my relationship with my mother to morph from mother and daughter to person and person. It allowed us to talk as adults, as equals, and understand each other better. Memories were shared but from two completely different points of view. ”

Christine A.

This is a fantastic book! There are so many really great questions in here to really learn about your mother and I love how it has more substance to help guide the reader on how to really connect with their mom while asking these questions rather than just a list of questions.”

“…insightful questions with thought provoking examples and explanations. It’s a book about exploring one’s heritage, strengthening or healing relationships and most importantly; honouring the wonderful person who brought you into this world. I love it!…

Author Christine Jackson


My goal is to help you grow, mend, and heal your relationship with your mom.



Getting to know your mom will not only be a gift to her but to you as well. It will help you to understand who this woman really is and it will help you to understand who you are and the decisions you have made in your life.

When we reach old age, we should be happy, healthy, loving life, know we made a positive difference, know we matter and to feel connected. If possible let’s do that for our moms. I know not all relationships can be healed so if you can’t heal your relationship with your mother, for whatever reason, then heal it from your perspective. Our relationships with our moms affect our lives in ways we can’t often measure, so the more we are at peace with that connection, the healthier and happier we all will be.

What Others are Saying:

This book was a surprising read for me. I expected a ho-hum journal type book, but it is so much more. It gives you topics you might wish to use as starting points for conversations with your mom. I so wish i had thought of something like this before my parents went to be with God, have written memories or pictures and in their own words…”

Greg C

“….I will be recommending this book to my family and friends to read. It wasn’t till I read your book that I realized my own misgivings with Mom where because we are from different generations…”

Connie N

“Glenna writes a very interesting book. We all know the basics of our mothers in this book Glenna gives us ideas on how to ask questions without being invasive. This gives us a deeper knowledge of our family history. I really enjoyed it.”

Your mother is an amazing woman, but she may not know that. All women are amazing, but Moms really do hold a special place. The truth is being a Mom is a journey and not always an easy one. There is so much to do and really there is no ‘rule book’ on how you are to raise this little one that is now so dependent on you. Your mom might have gotten most of it right, she may have only gotten some of it right or she may have really struggled as a mom but do you know why she made the decisions she did… why she had the struggles she did… what made her happy… what she truly believed about herself.

Your relationship with your mom might be affecting your life in more ways than you realize.

How well do you know your mom’s story—why she made some decisions she did, what she really wanted in life, what she regrets…

Understanding your mom will give you a whole new perspective on her and on your own life.

Knowing Your Mom’s Story can grow, mend, and heal your relationship!

Thank you, Moms, for the life you have lived. You have shaped the lives of so many. You are truly a beautiful soul.

You grew up in a different time with different expectations. And you worked hard. You have helped make positive change for women.


You’ve lived through the most dynamic changes in history. You’ve seen more than any other generation has. It’s time, Mom, to share your journey.
