The Motherhood Diaries was born from numerous suggestions from the author’s thousands of followers on her Facebook and Twitter pages. ReShonda has openly shared stories about her children: twelve-year-old Mya, the diva who searched the Internet for the president of Justice department store, then called his personal line to tell him why he “would be crazy not to let her model for him”; to ten-year-old Morgan, who has a serious case of middle-child syndrome and a knack for falling asleep in the strangest of places (the pantry, the dryer, the attic); and finally, five-year-old Myles, who, as his grandmother says, “has been here before.”
Through humorous and enlightening dialogue and narrative, ReShonda chronicles their journey, as well as reveals candid imperfections of a mother trying to balance it all. An entertaining and enjoyable read, The Motherhood Diaries shares candid and honest conversations about motherhood, career choices, daycare dilemmas, husbands, and more!

Something To Say
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!”
