In the sea of parenting books, “Live Love Now” and its author stand out for several reasons. Firstly, this is a book which is not going to make you feel like you are falling short of expectations. It encourages you not only to “come as you are,” but also to be an example of authenticity, encouragement and guidance. Secondly, it is full of personal stories which are written so warmly and masterfully that you will get this tingly feeling of having Rachel over for a cup of tea - not only while you read but later too when her words will do circles in your overactive mind. Last, but not least, this book is what the world needs right now. We live in the most uncertain times of our lives, we are a few steps away or already neck deep in a generalized state of anxiety, our small children are looking up to us to regulate their own emotions while our older children are teaching us how to make the best of the circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to try our best as parents now more than ever. This book will give you some parenting tools on how to be peace in the chaos or how to unveil the disguises of fear. However, more importantly, in my humble opinion, it will make you feel less alone as Rachel’s aura of authenticity and vulnerability will wrap around you like a warm blanket. Go ahead, gift yourself this book and learn how to be gentle with yourself and strong for your children at the same time.
