Synopsis

As the mother Wes Moore, whose memoir about overcoming the obstacles that face a fatherless young black man was a huge bestseller, Joy is often asked: How did you do it? How do you balance parenting, work and self-care when you don't have a partner to pick up the slack? How do you connect with a child when you can't always be there? Joy's answer is "presence." We can't always be physically there for our children, but the power of presence can help us to be a voice in the back of their minds that guides them through difficult times.

In MY PRIDE, MY JOY, Moore explores seven pillars of presence--heart, faith, mind, courage, financial freedom, values, and connectedness--that all parents can use to be positively influence their children. Using compelling stories from women who have been there and practical advice on everything from savings accounts to mindfulness, this book is a compassionate look at what it takes to raise great kids.
