Recommends it for: mothers & daughters
I learned so much about what mothers pass on to their children, and what my own mother passed on to me. I highly recommend it.

T.D.Jakes in his own unique way explain what mamas teach to their kids. One of the greatest things mamas teach, is - to believe in ourselves, to be broa- minded, power of words, to be responsible, to love ourselves, to celebrate others, to banish bitterness, to endure, etc. I just got so much encouragement through every page of the book.

Shelves: donate
I did not complete reading this book, not because there was anything wrong with it, but because not being a mother myself I wanted to get it into the hands of someone who could really relate with the content. I donated the book.
