04: Feeling Fabulous with Randi Crawford – Bren McClain – One Good Mama Bone

Bren McClain - Honoring Motherhood

Speaking with Bren McClain was a real honor.  She is a totally down to earth person, with more passion than just about anyone I've ever spoken with.  She has two great loves in life - writing and animals.  She knew at the age of 3 that she wanted to be a writer, and boy was she on target.  She also grew up in the South, and had a life changing experience on her father's farm with cows that were weaning - and when she heard the moaning and the cries of the calves being torn from their mothers, she made a promise that day to honor that experience and tell their story.  She wrote, One Good Mama Bone, which is an extraordinary story about a single mother whose life is changed when she meets, Mama Red, a cow that will ultimately teach her about mothering.  Bren has incredible lessons for all of us about passions, sticking with something, and just life in general.  I hope you enjoy our conversation.  Cheers.
