“My home is green enough to be healthy but chill enough to be happy.” —Leah Segedie, Green Enough
In an era of online mom‑shaming, Carissa Bonham likes to keep things authentic when discussing the struggles of modern motherhood. One popular meme shared on Carissa’s website, Creative Green Living, says “Some days I make beautiful dinners from scratch. Today my kids had cereal and ice cream for dinner. At least it was organic.” This is motherhood today.
Carissa’s charming mix of inspirational and aspirational quotes mixed with real‑life mom moments will make The Little Green Book of Mothers’ Wisdom both encouraging and inspirational for moms of all ages, including millennial and Gen X mothers. Explore the journey of motherhood, the life-giving power of mothers, mom instincts, and cultural parenting through the quotes on these pages. Receive advice from crunchy moms, mothers of differently wired kids, and mothers of teens and adult children.
This charming mix of inspiration and aspirational quotes mixed with a dash of reality about modern motherhood has something for every mom.
