  1. Just ordered this book. While I’ve launched my daughters, the letting go continues! And I want to encourage younger moms in this process. Thanks for a great podcast!

  2. This podcast was powerfully timely, encouraging and redirecting in my heart and mind! I am sending it to many moms including my three adult daughters who are moms. The “mom grief “ explanation was very helpful! Thank you Lee and thank you MIP!!
