Follow Me Where I Go, What I Do and Who I Know

Hey, faithful followers, please follow me where I go. You can stay right here too. But I would love to see you on my new site, Shanti Mom For One. I’ll explain that site in a moment, but this site is changing its name to Blog Mom Reviews. This site will be all reviews…CD’s, DVD’s, books, women’s products, children’s products, yoga gear, and whatever else they throw my way.

There is a group of you who like and comment on my posts and I would especially love for you to visit and follow Shanti Mom For One. I hope this works! I appreciate you.

Shanti Mom For One is specially designed for women and moms but you don’t have to be one of those to follow along. You can also join my FB group, which is an open forum for celebrations, frustrations, questions, and accomplishments.

I am Shanti Mom, a mother of one, honoring and celebrating all moms as an Author, Artist, and Educator. As a retired dance educator and ‘mother of advanced age’, my unique perspective on motherhood keeps life interesting.

My husband, Jeff, is a regional sales rep for the MAPEI Corporation. He loves his job, does very well, and provides for our family. We love him for that.

Author…

My very first book, In So Many Words, is available on Amazon. I have begun working on my second book, due out in the fall of 2017. Its working title is She Waited for Me.

I am also a Registered Yoga Teacher specializing in Yoga Therapy. I teach group classes, private lessons, and serve as a substitute for local studios. My classes are gentle, modified, and meditative. Teaching yoga gets me out of the house and keeps me grounded and balanced.

Sneak Peek into My First Book

News Flash! Sneak Peek

You are being treated to a sneak peek into my book, In So Many Words, before it comes out on November 4th. My life has been so consumed with preparations for its publication that some of it just had to come out!

The book will be available on Amazon, this blog, a few local spots, and many other sites belonging to colleagues and friends who have generously offered their help with its promotion.

Look for my promotional videos in the first week of October.

I am simply bursting with excitement!

 

Excerpt from Chapter One:

Drop the reins. Let God, fate, universe take control. Seriously. You’re not sure you know how to do that? It scares the crap out of you that you won’t know how to do that? Remember the vessel – one heart – possibly two. Remember the light inside you. Remember the vision board focused on you. Your heart and soul. Those come first. Someone else’s love is going to spill into yours. You are not going to take it. Would you still feel happy without him in your life? Of course you would! You already did! Nothing was missing. You are complete.”

One of my first blog posts

Many thanks to The Baby Spot for sharing one of my first blog posts, Impulse. It illustrates a tough period of mommy-hood that tends to repeat itself. Some of the feelings haven’t gone away. I’ve just gotten used to it and have learned to cope. Being a mommy is never easy, but more often than not, I feel the bliss of being one.

blog posts

This blog has truly been a form of therapy for me, but has also allowed me the joy of connecting with all sorts of people all over the globe. I am constantly amazed by the accomplishments, talents, and experiences of the writers I follow. It humbles and inspires me.
