As a mom of three boys, my oldest has it the hardest. It's him that I learn with and learn from- it's him that helps shape me into the mother I am, and the mother I try to be. I feel most protective towards him. He's my gopher. He's my buddy. He's the boy who first made me a mom. 

One night, I went to write him a letter leading up to his preschool graduation, but instead, words spilled out of my heart and onto paper,

and so birthed this book. 

I wanted to create a meaningful tribute dedicated to the milestone of starting elementary school...

from the moment a child is born to honoring and entering this big chapter in their life.

My goal: structuring a lovely tale that gifts children reassurance of a parent's unconditional love, while instilling in them empowerment and confidence.

I invite you to welcome Sing My Sweet Lion into your heart, home and nighttime reading ritual. I hope the words gravitate deep into your soul.
