EARLY PRAISE for Sunny Days with Mommy & Me –
“An experience of love, faith, and hope. This story shows us how to manage life’s responsibilities and challenges using consistent routines, great nurturance, and promotion of healthy child development. Sunny Days with Mommy & Me offers a great illustration to young children and their families that are juggling life’s responsibilities while keeping love, faith, and family as their core values in life. This book can be used as a great therapeutic tool for practitioners facilitating discussions with children and families around routines, faith-based practices, family systems and strength building.”

“A refreshing glimpse into the daily life of a faith-centered family that focuses on quality time spent together.”
-Jonathan Thompson, Director of Music Bands and STEAM at South Park Middle and High Schools, FairPlay Colorado
“It is great to see how the author emphasizes the need for a daily routine. Importance and reasoning is given for every task/activity the child is involved in throughout the day. Every home with small children would benefit by having a copy of this book. Beautifully written and illustrated.”
-Pamela Simmons, Retired Gifted Teacher at Volusia County School Board
“A tender story of a day in the life of a mother with her young son. The story line, the vivid language and the illustrations are all very endearing. There are many hidden lessons throughout the book. A great book to read as a bedtime story!”
-Elsie Mendez, Former Gifted Teacher and School Principal at Volusia County School Board
“I wish I had read this book during my child bearing years. At that point in my life, my biggest fear was to be a single mother. Today my biggest regret is that I never was. This book inspires and empowers single mothers with daily routines filled with love, faith, health, education, nutrition and fun! All beautifully illustrated and told through the eyes of a child.”
-Pollyanna Dorough, Singer/Song Writer and Voice Teacher
“Simple and direct, this little book will bring a smile to every face. An uplifting book based on ‘what a day can look like for a single mom’, it will encourage and strengthen single moms, while reinforcing what a positive mother-child relationship can look like in the absence of a father. Pick it up and enjoy!”
-Bill Gentry, Missionary Father to Orphans in Ukraine and President, Father’s Heart Ministries
