Today

STYLE BOUTIQUE: "YOU'RE WELCOME, MAMA" BOOK LAUNCH

Join Dr. Heather Cook as she releases her first book entitled You're Welcome, Mama. Its already hit Amazon's Best Seller and Hot New Release lists! You're Welcome, Mama is a lighthearted read for young mamas who feel overwhelmed, exhausted, frazzled, or all that craziness balled up into one messy life. This book boasts a mix of humor and bite-sized, reasonable challenges that can inject a dose of productivity to a mama's day and a sense of accomplishment to her world.

So often, mamas give to others. Rarely, do they give to themselves. This book takes young mamas through a journey of "I'm overwhelmed" to "Here we go,” showing them how to be a better person for everyone, and most importantly, for themselves. Food drinks, books, happy tears, laughter and fun - ALL AVAILABLE!
