The New Laws of Mommyhood & Marriage


Throughout childhood, the lessons your elders instill in you and the examples you observe day-to-day will forever affect your perspective and the way you face challenges as you grow and develop as an adult. For Dr. Anila Ricks-Cord, the pearls of wisdom imparted to her by her grandmother and mother shaped her trajectory through a life of love and success as well as loss and hardship. Along with providing her seven New Laws of Mommyhood and Marriage, Dr. Ricks-Cord thoughtfully shares her poignant, and at times hilarious, ride of raising three children in the modern world, while holding sacred the values she formed growing up.

The New Laws of Mommyhood & Marriage is a helpful reminder that life, with the good and the bad, is a giant learning experience, so it’s best to stay resilient and move forward with faith, grace, a sense of humor, and an open mind.
