My Guru Calls Me Momma

Learning about Life from the Dotty Lama
  • By Jill Pepper Montz

See, Mom? You aren't a bad parent, you're just a regular parent and I'm a regular kid.

My therapist will be thrilled to hear it.

In this poignant and hilarious memoir, Jill Pepper Montz - thoughtful Christian, second-generation pecan grower, and doting momma - talks honestly about the ups and downs of life as a divorced parent, and the lessons she learns daily from her sharp-witted, perfectionist, fashionista daughter, Dot.

Lessons like:

  • Bacon is best when cooked
  • Never be so afraid of getting hurt that you give up on trying
  • "Normal" is what you make it
  • Some of the best teaching moments occur when you're not expecting them
  • You don't have to be perfect to be beautiful or loved
  • Sometimes functionally dysfunctional is all you can ask for

With chapters such as Memories - Not Kodak, But All Mine (how to stop planning a Disney vacation and actually enjoy it), Loving You When You're Hard to Love (spoiler: God and mom will always have your back), and Random and Repeat (why acceptance is often a better response than judgment), My Guru Calls Me Momma is a compassionate, insightful guide to finding love, gratitude, understanding, and humor in even the darkest moments.
