In her debut, Vanessa Linsey takes us on an uproarious journey of spirituality, humor, and humility. Metta Mom brims with stories unheard outside our most intimate moments like teenage slumber parties, deathbed confessionals, and appointments with a gastroenterologist. Each humbling tale brings lifetimes of powerful lessons gleaned from healing and miracle-making. Metta Mom provides sanity-seeking parents with heroic, yet tangible steps to creating the harmonious family life they thought possible only in their dreams. Metta Mom: A Mindful Guide to Managing Your Mood & Your Brood features topics like: losing a parent and gaining an unruly beast of an emotional complex; surviving junior high as the flat-chested mean girl; bootstrapping your way out of longterm depression; mastering mindfulness, which includes but is not limited to mindful PMS, mindful parenting, mindful scheduling, mindful orgasms, mindful fighting, and mindful cursing; rewriting your personal history through the lens of compassion and self-love; un-becoming a Stepmonster; getting through cancer without losing your sh*t; getting through toddler years without losing your sh*t; getting through your kids' teen years without losing your sh*t; getting through a divorce without losing your sh*t; experiencing the A to almost Z of spiritual ascension; using every spiritual and mental health tool available to unstick yourself from unhealthy habits, relationships, and material possessions that distract your mind, keep you small, and swallow up your time; living a fun life without apologizing or asking permission. If you are ready to break free of conditioned behaviors and bad habits, if you've read a thousand parenting books and nothing works because you're too undisciplined to follow expert advice or too tired to make another sticker chart, if you believe you just might be worthy of spiritual ascension, Vanessa Linsey is your superhero sidekick.
