Idea: Shelby Spear and Lisa Leshaw craft an inspiring and intimate collection of psalms and conversations directed at mothers and which explore complex emotional stages relating to motherhood.
Prose: The authors communicate with readers in a clear, genuine prose style. The psalms in this work are smoothly integrated into the broader discussion of raising children and the myriad emotions accompanying the experience.
Originality: Spear and Leshaw’s project is unique in its vision and approach to spirituality and self-help. The marriage of two distinct voices offers a memorable reading experience.
Character/Execution: Readers will find a comforting and supportive handbook in How Are You Feeling, Momma? Mothers feeling isolated in their emotional states will value this heartfelt contribution.
Blurb: An original, helpful, and inspiring book...a must for moms--and parents--everywhere.

It's in this book where you will find freedom from hiding, from holding in those true emotions, from having to keep it all together with a perfectly coined, "I'm fine." You can be real here. You can be you.
How Are You Feeling, Momma? is helpful, but it is so much more. Eloquently written, fresh, and dear. I felt seen and heard. Perfect.
