We did it!! We really did it.
We made it to today, August 6th, 2019 and BOY MOM is officially alive. Released. Born. Launched. Whatever you might call it — it’s, like — in stores and hopefully in many of your hands!
And I’ve got allllofthefeeeeels.
My boys took over the podcast this week to interview ME… and I think you’ll enjoy this episode. It’s a little crazy and very raw, but it’s Book Release Day so it feels right! 🙂

As always you can listen on your favorite podcast platform, or just tune in right here:
A few quick heartfelt words, and how you can celebrate with us: So many of you have walked with me from before the Boy Mom Book was even a thought. You were with me in the early, awkward stages of blogging. You cheered me on when my first viral posts happened. You prayed for me and believed in my writing and sent me emails and messages to tell me so.
This is a day for ALL OF US TO CELEBRATE!
So: Would you join me? I’d love to imagine you doing something a little special in honor of the Boy Mom release…Maybe you can: Take your son for ice cream. Run through sprinklers with your kids. Sit around the table and talk about God’s faithfulness. Get on a Skype call with your grown son (or grandson!)…Rock your baby a few extra minutes. Tickle your toddler or tell your kids a joke. Do something…anything — intentional with your kids today, would you!?
THEN…would you share a picture of any of the above somewhere I might see it! Post a picture on Instagram or Facebook, and tag me! And if you happen to have the Boy Mom Book in your hands, by all means, include that as well! 🙂 If you tag me, I promise I will see every post! And I’m likely to share a bunch of them too!
Today I’ll be hanging out with my four sons. Breakfast. Beach time. Then I’m getting my hair done and we’ll all meet up with Dave for a celebratory dinner. I will be smiling all day long. Guaranteed.
Tomorrow night I’m having a little Launch party, so I’ll try to get some fun photos of that as well. (I wish you could all come!!)
The day after tomorrow I’m flying to Seattle to connect with a few of my life long friends and go to my high school class reunion in Gig Harbor, Wa. (I’d tell you which # reunion this is, but it would make me feel WAY TOO OLD, so let’s just skip it.) I’m really looking forward to a restful, playful weekend ahead!
BUT TODAY? I’m tired. I’m happy. I feel a lot like you do after you give birth to a healthy, beautiful baby! (except thankfully no cramping uterus or leaking breastmilk.) Just the sweet, satisfied, we-made-it-to-the-finish-line-and-I’m-really-grateful-kind-of-happy.
Thank you for being on this journey with me!
And I would love for you to also take a minute to stop with me and thank God for His faithfulness. Because without Him? NONE Of this would ever be! 🙂 I’m remembering the verse I have prayed so much this year:
“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, to Him be the glory…!” (Ephesians 3:20-21)
HOPE YOU ENJOY THE PODCAST EPISODE! AND…as we promised on the podcast, PLEASE leave me a comment here to be entered to win one of THREE copies of Boy Mom, compliments of my Publisher!
Oh! One link from the podcast interview: My Banana Cake Recipe!
Big hugs to all of you!
PS: One last thing! ONCE you’ve read my book, o(r at least enough of it to have a few kind words to say…;) ) it would mean like THE WORLD to me if you would hop onto Amazon (< right there! SO easy!) and leave a rating and review. Those things are like GOLD to authors, and also very hard to get people to do!! I will read every one and appreciate it so much. THANK YOU!!!
