Did you ever have one of those Mama Moments where you thought to yourself, am I really cut out for this?

 
  • How are other mothers out there managing all of this when I can't even figure out how to squeeze in a shower?
  • How are other mothers out managing their career and motherhood?
  • How are other mothers out there caring for their aging parents and their growing children at the same time?
  • How are other mothers out there facing their day with postpartum depression?
  • How are other mothers out there finding the courage to keep trying through infertility?
  • How are other mothers out there showing up for their families after a miscarriage?
  • How? How? How?!

Whether you've given yourself credit for it or not, Mama...you found a way.

Because you mustered up some kind of motherly superpower.
Because even on the days where you doubted yourself the most, a part of you kept believing you were doing a great job.
Because you tapped into innate knowing. Your sense of trust in yourself as you got through one day after the next.

We need more Moms supporting Moms.
We need more Moms to stop comparing themselves to other Moms.
We need more Moms to have more faith and confidence in their own journeys through motherhood.

We need more Moms stop taking the  beautifully curated images on social media as some sort of sign that they're doing it all wrong.

Your no holds barred story of how you claimed your power as a Mother is what other Mothers out there need to read.

If you are a mama...of any age...who has a story of how you created a version of Motherhood that worked for YOU, then we would love for you to share it in this anthology.

Author Testimonial

When I first considered writing with The Great Canadian Woman, I was terrified to write my story. I felt like it had no value to anyone, and that I would just be judged for my past. When I finally hit submit, I felt like barfing.

I had no idea that my story would impact hundreds. Literally hundreds of people thanked me. They told me they finally felt understood, that it was like I was writing their story. Those comments opened up a new world for me. I let go of all my old insecurities about sharing and being vulnerable and now I can’t even remember what it felt like to be scared of my own story.

Author Testimony

Two years ago I was presented with the opportunity to contribute to the book “The Great Canadian Woman, She is Strong and Free” as a collaborative author, sharing my story of survival and  healing after the murder of my 20 year old son. I suspected that sharing my experience may be of value to another grieving mother but I hadn’t considered how incredibly cathartic and healing it would be for ME! As I made my way through complex thoughts, feelings and emotions, I could see meaningful sentences and paragraphs start to form and in no time “my” chapter was born.   It’s like the paper was a sacred “dumping” place for my pain and as peace prevailed it became clear to me how far I had come in my healing. An incredible experience! I would strongly recommend anyone who is hearing “the whisper” to share their story, to please be brave and step forward. Your words will be medicine for someone else, but also know the  writing process is extremely cathartic and healing for your own soul. Your story matters. Your words matter. Your experience and perspective matters! Give yourself and others the gift of becoming a published author with The Great Canadian Woman!

Why Collaborate In a Volume With Other Women?

Because a community of women speaking their truths is a true force to be reckoned with. PLUS...

  • You can dip your toes in the pool of authorship (4k words), rather than diving all the way into a traditional book… approx. 90k words (WHOA!)
  • Collaboration = reduced publishing and marketing costs. AKA saving approximately 75%.... not to mention the headaches of figuring it out alone.
  • Your chapter is in good company amongst the other authors.
  • You can rally together to support and celebrate one another as the writing process finishes and the marketing begins!
  • And um, yea, again… because a book full of kick-ass women sharing their stories of overcoming the hardest, darkest, most isolating moments of their biz journeys is POWERFUL.
