Take It From Me: “B” & “DARE DREAM DO” (Book Review & Giveaway)

September 16, 2012

“B” & “DARE DREAM DO” (Book Review & Giveaway)

As human beings, we often need reminders because it is simply in our nature to forget. I received two very inspirational books that have reminded me of my own potential, and have really made me think about who I am as a mom.

The first book I received is written by a slam poet Sarah Kay. I first watched the video on You Tube of her performing this poem and was completely taken by surprise and was intrigued throughout the entire performance. I've watched this video numerous times and I've found myself clapping out-loud every single time. I know it's a little embarrassing, but seriously, she is addicting and very inspirational, you'll find yourself giving her a standing ovation as well!
" 'B' is about Mothers and daughters and the wisdom and hope that is shared -- and sometimes lost -- between the two. It's a thank you note, love letter, wish, promise, confession, and a secret all at once."
After seeing her perform "B" it made reading the hardcover even more exciting. Not only can I go back and re-read her stunning words, but I can hear her voice and determination every time as she starts off with,
"If I should have a daughter,
instead of Mom, she's gonna call me Point B.
So that way she knows that whatever happens, 
at least she can always find her way to me."

The second book I received is called "Dare, Dream, Do: Remarkable Things Happen When You Dare to Dream by Whitney Johnson. I'm not much of a reader, especially now that every minute of my life is focused on taking care of my family, but since I've received this book I've made the time to read it, and I have had a hard time putting it down.
This book really opened my eyes to what my aspirations are and what I want to achieve in this life. Whitney Johnson, a Harvard Business Review Blogger, "dares women to discover or in many cases, rediscover -- their dreams, as she believes that we are happiest when we focus both on our own dreams and on those of the people we love."
 This is the type of book that you will need to carry a pen with because you will WANT to write your thoughts down in the margins! Trust me, you'll have a lot to write about.

 Buy It!
Both books are available to purchase on amazon.

A big THANK YOU to Shelton Interactive and for providing me with these two fabulous books to review and for providing a giveaway. I was not compensated for this review. I receive product(s) for free so that I can provide my insight and experience. These are my honest opinions. Your experience may vary.


  1. WOW...that was very moving....and funny at the same time. I really liked the way she took a single topic and made it into a beautiful meaningful poem. I loved it!

  2. Amazing! I am impressed with all her insights and comments. I like about Wonder Woman and not wearing the cape all by herself and knowing the universe like the back of her hand. Awesome. Way more cool than I thought it would be. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

  3. What an amazing woman!
