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.
