Author Alicia Eggers started her Dear Joey journey with a blog post.  While encouraging mothers to fully embrace motherhood after being inspired by Joey Feek's last months with her daughter.  All mother's struggle to fully embrace motherhood everyday.  Motherhood is demanding, some mothers struggle more than other but we are all in it together. Frustration doesn't make you a bad mother. This book is beautifully written inspiring mothers to see the shining liner. 

"Dear Joey," is inspired by the life of county singer Joey Feek.  Joey showed us all, in her final days, just how beautifully motherhood could be embraced, even when motherhood comes to an end. Her life and death can encourage every mother to full embrace every single breath and to live fully in each moment.  Alicia shows the reader that living on purpose, through the anchor of Christ, is the most abundant life to live."

A glimpse of motherhood while embracing the joys, challenges, and blessing of being a mom.  Dreading the next day doesn't make you a bad mom, we all feel frustrated at times. It goes into depth about unpredictability of motherhood, life, and marriage. The author, Alicia Eggers encourages you to embrace the little things in motherhood providing real life examples throughout her book.
