    Thank you so much for being a sponsor for my book launch!  In addition to the essays included, Mothers of Intention is the first book to examine the rise of mother’s involved in politics as a result of social media, for which I conducted extensive research!  So readers will gets lots of essays, but some researched perspective on how mothers come to politics, how they raise political children and how social media has turbo-charged their ability to speak out and be involved!  :)
