Motherhood is undoubtedly one of life’s greatest blessings yet also one of the most challenging roles. It’s a round-the-clock job with constant demands on their time, energy, and emotions without the luxury of calling in sick or taking a break. ️

Despite these challenges, mothers soldier on with grace, strength, and unconditional love, keeping their children safe and warm in their embrace.

And so, in honor of Mother’s Day, one supermom from the Midwest is reminding us all to pay tribute to the dedication and sacrifice that moms display each day and the powerful and lifelong impact that a mother’s nurturing spirit and unconditional love has on their child. ‍

Children’s Author, Ellissa Schwartz, joins our John Masiulionis and Little Forrest on Episode #208 of PR From The Heart’s Children’s Books Spotlight Series to share her inspiring story, the release of her new children’s book, This Day I Hold Dear, the unbreakable bond she shares with her boys, the guiding lights who encouraged her to bring this sweet story to life, the challenges and struggles of motherhood in the modern world, how giving yourself grace is the ultimate superpower, ways to nurture and strengthen the connection between parents and their little ones, plus much more.
