A decade ago, there is no way I could have begun to imagine where I would be today. My life and experiences, good and bad, have led me to where I am today. I am very blessed to have four amazing children and my best friend at my side. Never would I have thought that my parenting journey would be a part of such an inspirational project as Amazing Moms: Parents of the 21st Century.
Mom’s of the 21st century are not only different from a century ago, but vastly different and amazing from each other. We all come from different paths and lead very different lives. These can be anything from culture, religion, orientation, disability, life choices, and so much more. Even so, at the heart of every mother is a desire to love and nurture her children.
Amazing Moms – Parents of the 21st Century
Amazing Moms: Parents of the 21st century is an absolutely stunning coffee table book that features 115 moms from around the globe. Coming from 13 different countries, these mom’s stories display motherhood and femininity at it’s very best!
This book is jammed packed full of compelling photos and content will inspire conversation about the refreshing, positive images of 21st century mothers as responsible, competent, active and nurturing parents.
About the Authors:
Hogan Hilling: Hogan is quiet an amazing author and more importantly, an inspirational father. Amazing Moms is his 12th published book. He is the creative genius behind the DADLY Brand and book series, as well as the founder of United We Parent. These amazing feats, fail in comparison to the love he has for all his children. Oprah has called him one of the greatest fathers in the world, and I am honored to know him through this project.
Dr. Elise Cohen Ho: Dr. Ho has over 25 years of experience and holds multiple certifications
and degrees including a Ph.D. in Natural Health and a doctoral degree in Naturopathic Psychology. Dr. Ho is also founder of United We Parent. She is passionate about helping others through her private practice. This love and compassion shows in everything she does and it is an amazing pleasure to know her through this project as well!
What is the Amazing Moms Coffee Table Book all About?
The idea for this book came while Hogan Hilling was soliciting dads for his coffee table book DADLY Dads, which
also features 115 dads. Hilling invited Dr. Elise Cohen Ho to co-author the book with him.
The book features a diverse group of 115 moms from around the world. The passionate, tender and loving candid photos combined with the genuine, eloquent and heartfelt comments from a diverse group of amazing moms all over the world represent motherhood and femininity at its best.
“Jobs may come and go. We may move houses or relocate to a new area, state, or country. Nevertheless, we do what we do day in and day out to be the best parent we can be for our families. Why, you ask? We are moms!” – Adrienne Milligan
How does Amazing Moms: Parents of the 21st Century Share These Stories?
Each mom selected to be feature in this book was ask the same questions, and the answers vary greatly in such an inspirational way! Each mom was asked to tell us what she does well as a mom; what she learned from another mom; lesson she learned from her child.
