Looking For Some
Advice From Mom?

Enter search terms below to quickly find what you are looking for on the Advice From Mom website:

The older we get the less we may appreciate unsolicited advice from mom or others who are part of "the older generation." A party game I have sometimes played at adult gatherings asks the question: "What was the best advice you received from your mom when you were young?"


Some of the answers are funny; most are thoughtful. The game often sparks conversation about the influence the advice and wisdom that moms share has in the lives of their children and grandchildren. Fortunately, we have many people in our lives who encourage us, mentor us and offer good advice at all stages of our journey. We learn from each other all along the way. There are many places on this site where you can share your widsom and knowledge with other readers. Please feel free to do so.

As the economy takes a downturn, many people are looking for advice about living a frugal life. At least in the USA, many have taken for granted that life will include the ability to earn a good income. We have indulged ourselves with the things money can buy. Now there is a shift toward living a more frugal lifestyle.

Many are turning from lavish lifestyles to lives of frugal simplicity. On many of the pages here I will share thoughts about living on less, yet enjoying life more. My hope is that you will share what is working for you as well.

Here are some of my favorite frugal living websites.

Every generation has its own unique challenges. We're living in difficult times, however those that came before us lived through things that may have been even more stressful. I treasure the advice of my mom who is still healthy at nearly ninety years of age. The good news in all of this is that, if we are willing, we can learn from those who have gone before.

I was once asked: "If you had the opportunity, what advice would you give to the next generation?” There is not, of course, a single or simple answer to that question. I'm grateful that my grown children do sometimes ask for advice from mom. And, if I were to sum up, in one word, what I believe to be most important in life, that word is: relationship.

Relationships are always a challenge yet our love relationships, our parent-child relationships, and our friendships form the foundation of what is most meaningful in life.

Through the ages, writers and poets have focused on our relational attachments. I've gathered just a bit of their wisdom in some pages that offer quotes about friendship and some wonderful poems by some of the world's famous poets.

Typically those of us who are older are presumed to have advice and perception to offer to those who are younger. Many cultures seek the advice of their elders and honor the “wisdom of the ages.” Wisdom and advice, however, are not the exclusive property of those who have lived a long life. We can all learn from others of any age. Learning should be a lifelong pursuit.

It feels a bit presumtuous to offer my limited insights and wisdom to others. That is not the only goal of this site. I am creating a community where wisdom and advice from moms and others can be shared. You will find many places on the site where you can add your perspectives, tips, and other contributions.

It is important to me, at my stage of life, to think about leaving a legacy. As you will discover, my perspectives about legacy have nothing to do with leaving "stuff" for others to divvy up! The heritage that I want to leave could best be described as a legacy of love that begins with the relationships that mean the most.


As I offer "advice from mom" on this site, and some of what I have learned so far, I will include a few of my own family stories and photos as well as stories, wisdom and advice of others I respect and have learned from. I look forward to hearing what you are learning on this journey we are all on

Feel free to use the Advice From Mom Contact Page to suggest topics we can explore together.

I am a collector of quotes, sayings and beautiful words of wisdom. You will find many of them sprinkled throughout the site. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Wisdom outweighs any wealth. ~Sophocles

There is a wisdom of the head, and... a wisdom of the heart. ~Charles Dickens
