In honor of Mother's Day we have an amazing in-studio guest, Darlene Brock, author of "Help Wanted: Mothers Raising Daughters". From humble beginnings in a small town in Indiana, to a Christian commune, to the music industry in Nashville, Darlene has always marched to the beat of her own drum. While she has a massive success story in the music and business world, Darlene has always been more concerned about her most important and fulfilling job of being a mother. Raising two daughters proved to be a welcome challenge for the woman who only wanted sons. She strived to instill grit and grace in her girls to help them reach their full potential and find their purpose and she continues to do that for women all over today. She is a wonderful, Godly woman and she is here to share her story, her successes and failures, and the lessons learned along the way in her journey of motherhood. Listen today as Darlene Brock empowers and encourages the mothers out there!
While raising her two daughters, Darlene found time to produce award-winning music videos, manage recording artists, promote concerts throughout the US, and serve as the Chief Operating Officer of ForeFront Records. Yet, when reviewing her varied accomplishments and successful career, she proclaims her most important and fulfilling job is Mom.
Since the publication of Help Wanted: moms raising daughters, Darlene Brock has appeared on the Fox & friends morning show, and been featured on CNN.com, TLC's Parentables, CBN.com, Fox News.com, Beliefnet, Christian Post, Keepthefaith.com and many other radio programs and numerous blogs and websites for Women.
"This book is about what I learned - about the jobs you need to master, the advice from other women that helped me, as well as some realities about the life and culture we live in that informed my perspective. I want all mothers to believe they can take on the most difficult job in the world - raising daughters - and not only live to tell about it, but smile along the way."
In Early 2011, Darlene, with husband Dan, co-founded The Grit and Grace Project. The purpose of this organization is to assist women in reaching their full potential and find purpose as individuals, wives and mothers.
