In her debut book, Vanessa Linsey takes us on an uproarious journey of spirituality, humor, and humility. Metta Mom: A Mindful Guide to Managing Your Mood & Your Brood (Bowker, 2019) brims with stories unheard outside our most intimate moments like teenage slumber parties, deathbed confessionals, and appointments with a gastroenterologist. Each humbling tale brings lifetimes of powerful lessons gleaned from healing and miracle-making.

Metta Mom provides sanity-seeking parents with heroic, yet tangible steps to creating the harmonious family life they thought possible only in their dreams.
