Summary "Children learn who they are through the eyes and actions of their parents and this is the story of an ordinary mom who learned to listen to her inner voice. It begins with her and then her children, ages 4, 6, 8 and 11 and finally learning together along the way. Filled with struggles, humor, love and triumph, this is their story. Now it can be yours."
