Mothers and Daughters: Mending a Strained Relationship by Teena M. Stewart


Chapter 2, Excerpt

The Perfect Relationship Myth

In some sense every parent does love their children,” she responded, ignoring his second question. “But some parents are too broken to love them well and others are barely able to love them at all…1 Papa – The Shack

In the photograph actress Gwyneth Paltrow appears completely at ease. Eyes closed, dressed in an elegant white evening gown that accentuates her slender neck and upswept hair, Gwyneth leans back against the comforting embrace of her mother, Blythe Danner. Both women are remarkably beautiful with facial similarities so alike that no one could mistake them for anything other than what they are—mother and daughter.

The photographer has crafted a beautiful portrait which emotes a sense of tranquility and security and something more—a surreal moment of an ideal existence between a mother and daughter. The two seem so at ease in one another’s company that they need say nothing, just co-exist peacefully in the same space.

What woman hasn’t longed for such a mother-daughter relationship? The carefully staged portrait of Gwyneth and Blythe, however, is just that, a staged portrait. The photographer painstakingly considered their wardrobe, the lighting, the backdrop and the pose. None of it happened by chance. Though the younger actress may indeed have a good rapport with her mother, it is undoubtedly imperfect. Even if their bond is as close as the photo implies, at times their relationship may be pulled snug and taught like a comfortable pair of perfect fitting jeans. At other times their bond may feel frayed, stretched, and dangerously thin.

On a daily basis we interface with human beings laden with idiosyncrasies and short-comings spawned by unique upbringings. We even exhibit these ourselves. For better or worse, our personal history forms us into who we are and we are left trying to make relationships work despite these quirks. Close-knit friendships between mothers and daughters are a rarity. On occasion when we do glimpse what appears to be a healthy, tight relationship between a mother and daughter, we may view them through a filter making their relationship appear more perfect and desirable than it actually is. Perhaps this is because we find our own so lacking and long deeply to have just a fraction of such intimacy in our own.

Trusting God When Bad Things Happen


Trusting God When Bad Things Happen

Guest post by Shelley Hitz
My heart continues to be heavy for all those grieving today across our country. I don’t believe it was a coincidence that I published a book this past week called, “Trusting God When Bad Things Happen.” And even before the tragedy in Connecticut, I felt led to offer it free on Smashwords this month.

Trusting God In The Midst of the “Storms” of Life

When bad things happen, what is your reaction? Do you trust God even when you don’t understand?
There was a dark season in my life when it literally felt like an earthquake had occurred. Everything in my life seemed to be falling apart…my family, my finances, our church. And I asked God the simple question, “Why?” This book is the result of my own search for answers. In the end, God gave me illustrations that I will share with you and brought healing to my heart and my distorted view of Him. I was able to trust Him again, even though my circumstances had not changed.
I pray that God uses this short eBook to deeply impact you as well. I have included questions for reflection for you to go through individually or as a group.
“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I (Jesus) have overcome the world!” – John 16:33
One Reader’s Response:
“This book has Biblical answers to the ‘Why?’ we are hearing so much today after the shooting tragedy in Connecticut. Thank you, Shelley, for the timeliness and wisdom.” ~Barbara

The Next Big Thing?

Is Trees of the Book gonna be The Next Big Thing?

I have been tagged by Jan Cox  author of Tadeo Turtle.

Here are my answers to the questions:

What is the (working) title of your book?

The activity bookTrees of the Book – Learning from God’s Creation, will be coming out in the spring of 2013.

Where did the idea come from for the book?

As an avid walker, I have a love and appreciation for nature, especially walking through the woods.  I also like to read the Bible and found myself curious about the trees mentioned in scripture.  At the time I started my research I was actively involved in children’s ministry in my church so wanted to share what I learned in an entertaining format for the children. I produced one-sheets to fit into the weekly bulletins and featured one tree a week for seven weeks. I collected these together and added facts about each tree with fun activities. And voila, I had the beginnings of this book!

What genre does your book fall under?

Trees of the Book is written for children in grades two and three. It can also be used for teachers as a supplemental book to the Growth & Changes in Plants curriculum for Canadian teachers.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

I could see such a book being narrated by someone from Veggie Tales, like Bob the Tomatoe, as the stories are brought to life through cartoon characters that would appeal to young children…maybe Larry the Cucumber.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Take a tour of 7 different trees in the Bible and discover the stories God has to tell through them.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

Self-published. I am working with Diane from ByDesign Media to publish the book and Esther Haug to create the illustrations.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I started in 2008 and played with the manuscript over the years.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

Peter Black, a Canadian author, had mentioned that he put together his book Parables from the Pond after sharing it with his church audience one story at a time.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

Each of the seven chapters includes a Bible story told from the viewpoint of the tree, fast facts to help identify the specific tree, and an activity to help reinforce the truth in the lesson. Challenging questions support each story. Glossary and “People of the Bible” sections at the back of the book define words highlighted in bold. Project suggestions are provided to supplement your learning.

And now I tag:
