Bel Air author compiles words of love, inspiration from mother in new book
BEL AIR, Md. — A mother’s love exudes in author Brandi Jackson’s heartwarming, new book of letters, “Love Always, Mom.” This love-filled read is set for nationwide release this week.
Words are so important into a child’s life. Although raising a child is not easy, it is easier to parent a child when they are younger. Once the child becomes a young adult, parenting can become much more difficult. Parents push their children out of the nest, but they still don’t want them to fall. The awesome thing about parenting is that the parent grows with the child.
In “Love Always, Mom,” Jackson’s mother has expressed her love for the author through her words over the years. Jackson’s earliest memory of her special letters was a note in her lunch box in the sixth grade, telling her how much her mother loved her. The letters continued from there, through high school, college, her first years in the real world, until today. Each word found her in the form of a card, e-mail or letter. Every word has always been encouraging and uplifting. Her mother’s words helped shape Jackson into the confident and compassionate person she is today. There is no instructional book for parenting, but the author hopes that “Love Always, Mom” will spark some ideas!
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Jackson, who lives in Bel Air, Maryland, is a human resources professional. She is single with no children yet, but she is looking forward to raise her children in a way that she breathes life into them. The author, who loves God, is unashamed about the relationship she has with him. She considers herself blessed, and she could not be more grateful to have the mother that she does. Her mother, Carolyn, who is retired, lives in Columbus, Ohio, with the rest of Jackson’s beautiful family. Carolyn still writes Jackson cards, letters and e-mails up to this day.
