Endorsed by the National Association of Mothers' Centers, this book is dedicated to your realization and mastery of the power of unconditional love. The book offers a wealth of wisdom, knowledge of practical living skills and effective communication techniques. From My Mama's Kitchen reveals the power of relationships, the nature of love and the meaning of life. Johnny's 9 moms equipped him with these insights in a kitchen setting. From the virtue of spiritual awareness to self-actualization, Johnny's 9 moms nourished him with recipes for living to become a person defined by his thoughts and actions.
This book is a tribute to mothers everywhere. It has received five awards: in 2010, Mom's Choice Awards, Mr. Dad Seal of Recognition and Publisher's Choice Awards by Family Magazine Group, in 2011, International Book Awards and National Indie Excellence Book Awards.
The print version of this book is designed as a keepsake for all occasions, meant to last and inspire forever. It includes a blank dedication page for readers to inscribe their own loved one's name, and a space where readers can record their recipes for living. At the very end of the book, Johnny incorporates nine of his favorite food recipes.
This is a quick read. If you're expecting a long one, you obviously didn't look at the page count when you got it. It is a book that touches with the concept of motherly love and centrals around recipes for life. It's nice how Johnny includes some recipes in the back of the book and leaves a few pages to include your own input.
I think that Johnny touches an important element in this book- the love that mothers have for their children. I know that it doesn't apply to every single mother out there, nothing is an absolute in life- but it is a nice book that is heart felt and warming.
I like how he's honoring his mom. It's a touching quick read.
I'd recommend for those that enjoy feel good, biographical, and lesson learning pieces. Oh, and those that like recipes too. :)
