So there’s this mom who also happens to be an insanely talented artist with the most beautiful voice named JJ Heller. I saw her perform live at a conference four years ago, immediately downloaded all of her music and have been listening to it ever since. I’m excited to share that this month JJ is releasing a brand new CD full of sweet lullabies AND her very first children’s book.
The book is called The Golden Feather and is written by JJ and her husband Dave. It’s the story of a little girl and her imagination as she tells the story about what she might dream about tonight. Maybe my favorite part is when, at the end of her story she says, “My Mommy listens closely, like mommies always do.”
Lately I’ve been trying to make sure that no matter what, even if it’s late and we’re in a rush and the kids just got in trouble and I want to pull my hair out and just get in bed already!!…no matter what, I want those last few moments before they drift off to sleep to feel safe and filled with unconditional love and undivided attention. Because you know what? Those last few moments of the day are when my kids are most likely to truly share their hearts with me.
If I let them.
Those precious moments before they drift off to sleep are possibly the most important of the day.
So tonight, we will take time to slow down, read a story, listen to a lullaby, and share a few moments of peace together. And I will listen closely, like mommies always do.
Take a peek at the book in the video below. (Adorably narrated by JJ’s daughter Lucy.)
