In honor of Mother’s Day, I’ve got some goodies for you! My friend, Trish Berg recently collaborated with four, fellow authors/moms to create “A Scrapbook of Motherhood Firsts.” Here’s a brief description of the book:
A SCRAPBOOK OF MOTHERHOOD FIRSTS celebrates motherhood milestones in a collection of topics from conception to school days, and recipes to family fun days. These wonderful authors accent their writing with wit, humor, joy and a faith in Christ that every mother will benefit from. “
Trish was kind enough to join me for a blog interview about her new book. Here’s what she had to say about the project and the wisdom inside the pages:
Brooke- You offer “Wisdom to Bless Mom,” could you share a piece of advice for the life-weary mom who is struggling to “do it all?”
Because children grow up while you’re not looking,
There are years ahead for cleaning and cooking
So, quiet now cobwebs, dust go to sleep.
Sucha neat idea for a book.

Hi Brooke, I listen to you on the Fish all the time. I have followed your blog for quite some time now and I love all the encouraging tips that you provide for mom's with young kids. Thank you for sharing your life with your listeners. I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day! God Bless, Dana

Hi Brooke, I love listening to your morning show! You and Len are always so upbeat and encouraging to listen to and to learn from. My husband and I are thinking about starting our own family and I have recently begun to worry about raising children in this crazy world so that they grow up knowing and loving God and putting others before themselves. This book looks really interesting and I would love to read it. Listening to Point of Grace is always a welcomed bonus too!
Just LOVE Trish Berg! So grateful she shares the gifts the Lord has given her. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a beautiful book and POG CD!!
Happy Mother's Day to you!

Great new site…
Brooke – thank you so much for all your encouraging words and life prospectives shared on The Fish and on your blogs. Following God's plan, we also hope to adopt internationally within the next few years and I love reading about your experiences of the adoption process and of introducing your daughter into your family. God Bless you!
Brooke ~ Thanks to you and Len for inspiring me every day! This is just another example. I can't wait to read the book. Trish said it best today with quoting Psalm 118:24 "This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it". You are a blessing to all of us. Have a wonderful mother's day. God Bless.
Cindy Luther says
Brooke – I listen to every morning while getting ready for work. I love the music, ministry and inspiration I receive for each day. Thankful for this great ministry. As a pastor's wife I'm always looking for new ideas to share with others. Can't wait to check out this new book.

I was at MUMS today Grace Church and truly enjoyed your talk. God has done so many amazing things in your life. The thing that really spoke to me the most today was about the laundry prayer. The laundry is the exact thing that has been so overwhelming to me lately. Hearing the words in that poem just really made me think about how I can praise God even while doing my laundry. You're a true inspiration to so many women. God has truly given you a gift on the radio. May God truly bless your family and I will be praying for your father. God Bless you!

Becky Heidinger says
Hi! I was at the MUMS event this morning with my nine day old son. I really enjoyed your talk and loved the laundry room prayer. With a six and a half year old and a newborn, God is teaching me to savor every moment. They go too quickly and to realize just how special being a Mom really is, not only for myself, but my husband and especially my sons.
Thank you for all your comments so far! Becky, congratulations on the birth of your son! Happy Mother's Day to all of you.
Love the new website!! I really enjoyed hearing your speech at MUM's this morning.

Hi Brooke –
I love listening to you and Len on the Fish Morning Show. You are always so uplifting and positive! Thank you for all your good advice and sharing stories about your family! The new website is fantastic and the prize giveaway is such a great idea!
Happy Mother's Day to You!
May you be blessed for many more to come!
Thank you, Brooke for all you do and say! I love listening to you and Len in the mornings. You are an inspiration to myself and many other women! Being an expecting mother of our first child, I am thrilled to celebrate Mother's Day this year! My first experience at the Mom Squad event last weekend was an honor and I can't wait to go again next year! Thanks for your wonderful ministry! 🙂
Both of these sound like great Mother's Day ideas!
Debbie Ropas says
I love listening to you and Len in the mornings. I listen to the Fish whenever I can all day long. It is so joyous and uplifting and keeps me focused on God.
I was at the Mom Squad luncheon and loved listening to Point of Grace, their music and stories. What a wonderful trio of ladies. Keep those Mom Squad activities coming, they are great!
Jen Haven says
I had the pleasure of hearing your message yesterday morning at Grace Church. My mom and I shared a wonderful morning together at MUMs (Mom's Uplifting Moms) with delicious food and amazing fellowship. The message was so uplifting. I am going to frame "The Laundry Room Prayer" and hang it next to the washer and dryer! Thanks for sharing your inspiration message! Love listening to you with my 2 boys on the Fish!
I remember listening to Point of Grace when I was around 14-15 and I can remember how much their music meant to me growing up. I really love their music and feel as though they helped me through some tough times, like a lot of Christian Music. The Fish has inspired me to become a better person. I wake up early in the morning JUST to listen to the morning show! I love Brooke and Len's positive attitude and uplifting spirits, especially in the morning.
Thanks for being an amazing team!
