Dr. Joan Wright-Good

Perhaps one of the most important books for women this Mother’s Day is the bestselling book by CEO, Business Coach, Author, and Publisher, Dr. Joan Wright-Good, ‘The Miseducation of Widowhood: 10 Things Every Wife Should Know About Managing, Coping & Dealing with The Journey.’ In this, her 10th book the seasoned author spared no time in explaining to women the importance of going beyond the superficial and exploring vulnerability when connecting in a relationship. She encouraged them not to shy away from challenging, and often difficult conversations.

Dr. Wright-Good implores women to break out of the cycle of trauma bonding, and negative financial cycles as individuals in marriage. The book is filled with financial resources, relationship tips, and etiquette to help friends and families be better helpers to loved ones dealing with trauma and grief. Here are some Amazon reviews:

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for widows it’s for every Woman

This book provides valuable insights for women to consider before and during any relationship, including marriage. It covers a wide range of topics, such as finance, communication, forgiveness, understanding, and acceptance. This book is not only helpful for widows but for every woman seeking wisdom and guidance.

5.0 out of 5 stars HIGHLY RECOMMENDED


5.0 out of 5 stars Couples should read together

I would definitely recommend this book, it is a must read for every woman heading into a serious relationship, but I would also suggest that couples read it together, it would definitely help them to plan better for the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for windows, for ALL wives

This book is really eye opening to communication, finance and marriage strategies alike. I don’t recommend it for just widows I recommend it for ALL wives. A must read. This book was not overly complicated or hard to read at all. I definitely recommend it to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Can of worms opened to make one wiser.. Wow!

“Are you a widow needing help to cope? Are you diving into a serious relationship? Dig into Godly insight…the transparency of uncomfortable questions and challenges are placed on the table in this book for strength ..I thought “Wow, who knew?” I finally also learned death etiquette & empathy because I have always failed epically trying to do right by those who have lost loved ones; I now support based on the advice and insight Dr Joan scribed in this book. This journey I see is not easy but you don’t have to figure it all out by yourself with this powerful book by your side. I am not a wife but I most definitely feel prepared for the life and death tools testified Dr. Joan’s experience. Just “wow” again”

Pick up a copy of Dr. Wright-Good’s new book at, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.

Judith D. Hall

Here’s another thoughtful gift for Mom. Too Fat Too Thin: Why Do I Hate The Skin I’m In? Author Judith is by trade an educator and speaker on all things women but her inspiring book isn’t just about skin and beauty. Instead, she takes readers through her glimpse of how she was raised. She also discusses how the lessons from her life of growing up in Jamaica, shaped her convictions and demonstrated her confidence after migrating to the United States of America. Hall detailed how the disparity in the media about women and beauty has caused women worldwide to feel flawed when they don’t buy into the industry’s lies.

Her hope in publishing this book is to help women understand that they have to move beyond making lemonade with the lemons life throws them, instead they need to find their voice and discover that confidence is attainable. Some of her parting words to women are, “Whatever situation you find yourself in, know that you are not your situation or condition. There is always a better way.” Hall believes that a confident woman comes as one but leaves as 10,000 because of the impact she creates in her wake.

Pick up a copy of her book at, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
