If It’s Not One Thing, It’s Your Mother

Julia Sweeney's book, If It's Not One Thing, It's Your Mother On TWE RADIO June 8,9–In Julia Sweeney’s new book, If It’s Not One Thing, It’s Your Mother (@simonschuster), she shares her decision to adopt as a single woman; her trip to China to get her new baby daughter, Mulan; and how she met her husband and formed a family unit. She details all the trials and tribulations along the way, adding her comedic touch.

Julia was a cast member of Saturday Night Live where she created the androgynous character “Pat.” Her one-woman shows in which she explored love, cancer, and faith displayed her talents as a performer and writer. This honest memoir follows a month in her life when she had a vacation from her family. As she says poignantly, “I took so long to assemble my lovely family. If only they would disappear.” They did for that short time and she reflects on her life with and without them.

This is a funny and thought-provoking book that will amuse and cause you to think about your own definition of family and perhaps give you a new appreciation of your mother. We heartily recommend.

Author and mother Katrina Kenison has captured a movement, one ordinary moment at a time, thanks to her book, The Gift of an Ordinary Day: A Mother’s Memoir, a popular blog, and the second most-watched book trailer online that you can see below.

“Begin each day with gratitude for what IS rather than worrying so much about what still might be.” Katrina

Katrina simply asks us to appreciate that parking spot that magically appears, the birds chirping as you walk your dog, your young son saying “thanks” for the fun day you just had….moments so simple and ordinary, and gone in a flash.

While it’s a mother’s memoir, it appeals to even the non-moms like EYE contributor Stacey Gualandi. As she says, “After talking with Katrina, I realized ordinary has universal appeal, and I understand my mom so much more. We also found out we both practice yoga. I teach and she’s about to become a teacher herself!”

And for the first time, Katrina’s sharing with us news about her next plans…something her fans and readers will be excited to hear!!! [Read more…]
