The Mother's Mite Review and Giveaway...

For every woman who has ever wondered if she gives enough . . .

As mothers, grandmothers, nurturers, and caregivers, we are often tempted to view our ordinary daily contributions as an endless string of undersized tasks, none of which seems worthy of any special consideration. But they are.

This collection of small and simple moments provides reassurance that — although our humble, little offerings may not seem significant at the time - these tiny acts undeniably make an immeasurable difference in the lives of those we love.

I was so excited to meet DeAnne Flynn in person! I adore her and this new cute book The Mother's Mite. It has great uplifting thoughts, stories and even yummy recipes. What a perfect gift for Mother's Day or anytime of the year!

I was also excited to see the Mother's Mite Pendant which is beautiful! Consider giving yourself, or someone you admire, the ultimate “badge of honor” gift – a beautiful Mother’s Mite pendant. Inspired by the biblical story of the humble widow who offered up her very last mite, these lovely antique bronze or sterling silver coin replicas remind women of all ages (and stages) that they, too, selflessly give their all each day.

Accented by a delicate freshwater pearl – symbolizing purity, uniqueness, and supreme resilience – this one-of-a-kind treasure speaks volumes to those who have eyes to see. (The Mother’s Mite is slightly smaller than a dime.)

All proceeds from the sale of Mother’s Mite jewelry will directly benefit homeless women and children through The Road Home shelter and other deserving charitable organizations for women.

What an awesome and touching idea DeAnne! Thank you so much for all you do! 

Now here's the exciting part... 

I get to give one lucky winner a copy of this book!

DeAnne worked as a news anchor/reporter in both radio and television before hosting a national real estate talk show for a private satellite television network headquartered in Salt Lake City.
