The Difficult Mother-Daughter Relationship Journal
It’s one thing to buy a self-help book. It’s another thing to read it. And it’s quite another thing to actually dig deep, do the journaling, access the wisdom, apply the learning, and make it real

#1 Amazon New Release ─ Transform your relationship with your mother
The best news on the planet is that your mother doesn’t have to change in order for you to be happy. In fact, author Karen C.L. Anderson will take it a step further and say, your mother doesn’t have to change in order for you to be free, peaceful, contented, and joyful.
…truth is, you are not your mother’s daughter. You are you. An autonomous adult who is a creature of goodness, light, and love and made up of the magic of Life. A woman who has the ability to take what happened to you in the past, and transform it into greater wisdom, depth and authentic love. And you can now redefine who you are, and what’s possible for you to create in this lifetime that is outside of your relationship with your mother. … Make this book your best friend. Sleep with it by your bedside. Read it each time you’re about to call your mother to remind you of the power you’re holding to have that conversation go well. Ultimately, I encourage you to use these chapters to help awaken you to who you really are, and the possibilities you’re holding for great healing, health, and happiness. Not in spite of all you’ve been through, but in many ways because of it. ~ from the Foreword by Katherine Woodward Thomas, author of New York Times bestsellers “Calling in ‘The One'” and “Conscious Uncoupling”
A practical and uplifting guide for the scores of women whose relationship with their mothers is less than optimal! ~ Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: “Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality, and Wellbeing,” “Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom,” and “The Wisdom of Menopause”
An empowering book that offers clarity and validation as well as strategies for freeing yourself from the control of an unhealthy mother relationship. ~ Susan Forward Ph.D., author of Toxic Parents and Mothers who Can’t Love
Whether you can still call your mother, or not, this book will inspire healthy, life-changing patterns in what is so often the most fraught terrain of our lives. It models and inspires grace, acceptance, forgiveness, and thriving. I can still call mine, and Karen C.L. Anderson’s high dose of rational, and yes, magical thinking…has made all the difference. ~ Laura Munson, New York Times and international best-selling author of This Is Not The Story You Think It Is
Congratulations to Karen C.L. Anderson who has approached, embraced, and translated, in the most compassionate and engaging way, the most essential of subjects: the relationships between mothers and daughters. With grace, courage, and articulate brilliance, Anderson tells her own story with unhesitating integrity and complicated respect, thereby inviting the rest of us to do the same. For that, and for her clear, uncompromising prose, I would suggest that every woman who has struggled with her relationship to motherhood–from any perspective–reach for Difficult Mothers, Adult Daughters. ~ Dr. Gina Barreca, Professor of English and Feminist Theory, University of Connecticut, Syndicated Columnist and author of If You Lean In, Will Men Just Look Down Your Blouse?
The work that Karen C.L. Anderson is doing with daughters in regards to their mothers is some of the most important work on the planet today. When we understand how influenced our minds are by what happened when we were growing up, we can then decide to let it go. In this book, Karen gives us the steps to do just that. I know from experience that this work is not easy, but it is by far the most important work I have ever done. Let Karen show you the way. ~ Brooke Castillo, Master Coach Instructor & Founder of The Life Coach School
A Real-Life Story of Weight Loss, Weight Gain and Weightlessness Through Total Acceptance
After The Before & After is about what happens after achieving “weight loss success.” After losing 55 pounds, the author thought she’d finally beat obesity and would live happily ever after. Then, like the vast majority of people who lose weight, she regained. This book chronicles her journey to discover that happiness has nothing to do with food or weight. Cultivating self acceptance did more for her emotional and physical shape than dieting ever could.
