New York Times bestselling author Kelly Corrigan is a sister, daughter, wife, and mother who has been called "the voice of her generation" for she has a keen sense of what we moms struggle to say to our loved ones in everyday situations. Like Kelly, moms rarely seem to be at a loss for words. Whether it's singing a sweet lullaby into a newborn's ear or shouting upstairs to a teenager to turn down the music, we moms have a way with words.
In her new release, Tell Me More: Stories about the 12 Hardest Things I'm Learning to Say, Corrigan tackles the true essence of ordinary phrases such as "I Don't Know" concerning a friend's infertility and "No" when establishing boundaries in a mother/daughter relationship. Imagine how much closer you'd be with your tween if only you'd choose to say "Tell Me More" rather than doling out unwanted advice.
The ability to choose the right words at the right time is a mind-boggling feat for most parents. Yet uttering the words "I Was Wrong" after a ridiculous family fight can be a game-changer when it comes to earning someone's respect. Corrigan's honest observations on these simple phrases we often neglect to articulate empower us all to make connections with the people we love most.
As an avid reader of Corrigan's books, Tell Me More felt more like a visit with an old college roommate as she shared the latest stories about her family and friends. A captivating speaker, it's worth to splurge on the audio CD version of the book for I found myself to be laughing and crying with her along the way. Her interpretation of the 12 phrases we need to say to one another like "Good Enough," "I Love You," and "Onward" will help you begin the New Year with more peace, love, and appreciation for the special people in your life.
