Come and enjoy great food, great stories, great poetry, great prizes, great company, and great food (oh, and great food). All royalties from sales of The Mother in Me that day will be donated to the Stephanie and Christian Nielson Recovery Fund.

If distance or other conflicts will prevent you from attending our IRL fundraising party, don't fret! You can participate online by purchasing copies of The Mother in Me on Deseret Book's website anytime on Saturday, October 18. (Note: this fundraiser does not include purchases made through Amazon.com.)

Stephanie has gained many admirers for her thoughtful, poignant daily celebration of motherhood--not only the fun parts, but also the hard parts. Stephanie knows that there's beauty to be found in all aspects of mothering, and that the tough stuff can work much good in our lives and hearts--if we let it. This realistic yet uplifting perspective is at the very center of the Mother in Me, a collection of prose and poetry written by 28 mothers of young children. As a group of authors and friends, we decided there was no better way to help Stephanie than by celebrating motherhood together. Please join with us!
