We remember with fondness the sweet advice of our dear mothers:
"Haste makes waste."
"Don't make me stop this car!"
"You're running away? Let me help you pack!"
"Just because Grandma farts at the table doesn't mean you can, too!"
Mother Knows Best - Wit and Wisdom from Idaho Moms will warm your heart and tickle your funny bone as several Idaho women and men recall words of advice they heard from their mothers. Proceeds from this book will benefit the Women's and Children's Allliance in Boise in celebration of 100 years of public service for women and men escaping domestic abuse and sexual assault. Quotes were compiled and edited by Patti Murphy.
Patti Murphy, an award-winning writer, is the author of more than 100 newspaper and magazine articles. Her feature story, "Memories of Minidoka," about Idaho's WWII Japanese internment camp, has received statewide and national awards. She owns Murphy Media Services, a public relations and freelance writing agency in Boise.
Purchase each book for $8.99 (plus Idaho sales tax) from the author.
