As the working mother of three children—ages twelve, ten, and five—ReShonda Tate Billingsley knows about juggling a family on the move. With personalities that are “made for TV,” according to her social media followers, it’s a recipe for nonstop entertainment.
HELP! I’VE TURNED INTO MY MOTHER
Tell a woman she is “turning into her mother” and chances are she will deny it. Some will defy it. Ultimately, though, recognition will finally set in…like it or not , daughters often emulate their mothers.
In an era when more mothers and daughters are exploring their relationships, Help! I’ve Turned Into My Mother offers an eclectic collection of true stories that provides a unique opportunity for discussion. Readers will see themselves, or others, in these tales from real-life women of all ages, races, and walks of life. Gathered by the author from messages she received on her website, the narratives include delightful reflections on the joys of growing up female, to hilarious accounts of the agony and ecstasy of being a young woman, to heartfelt tributes to parents and mentors who helped smooth the path to adulthood. Written with humor and warmth, they offer advice, encouragement, and inspiration for anyone juggling the diverse demands of life today.
For years, award-winning journalist-turned-bestselling author, ReShonda Tate Billingsley has wowed audiences with her prolific poetry performances. After numerous requests for her work she has compiled years of poetry into one stunning collection. Something to Say addresses issues women have been wanting to get off their chests. From, “Count Your Blessings” (where ReShonda breaks down what really matters) to “Let Me Tell You What I Need”(where ReShonda breaks it down for the brothers to understand what it takes to love a woman right) to “My Nappy Black Hair” (where she urges the world to understand that she’s proud of an image society is constantly trying to change), ReShonda takes you inside a world that makes you just want to shout, “Listen closely, have I got something to say!”
While ReShonda’s poetry is most effective when it is performed, readers wanting to rejuvenate and motivate their mind, body and spirit will lose themselves in the pages as well.
