Author Reviews/Testimonials

Sliding into Motherhood is a great book! Ms. Riggins made it simple and real. I experienced so many emotions reading it. I laughed, smiled, cried, shook my head, said Oh my Goodness, and felt her joys and pains. Truly enjoyed it. – K. Washington

This book is so refreshing. Reading it was like reviewing the ups and downs of my early parenting days, and I loved every page. The author is so honest and humorous. – V. Blakes

Such an honest portrayal of what it’s like to be a new mother. The author writes in a very candid, conversational tone that makes you feel like she’s confiding in a friend. Other expecting moms and new moms can find comfort in the author’s story and advice about motherhood. Great read. – Anonymous

This book is quite refreshing to read. While I am not a mother yet I have learned so much from reading this book. I love that it is so straightforward and you actually feel like you are having a one on one conversation with the author. This book is unique from others in the fact that it is an HONEST look into everything Gabby experienced. I really could not put this book down as soon as I started it so I highly recommend you all to read this book. I am glad there is something like this out there for all expecting, new mothers, and even some of us that have not yet had a child this is definitely something to hold onto for the future!!! – D. Torres

I do not have children, and reading Gabrielle’s book was eye-opening. Gabrielle serves up the real tea on first time motherhood from potty training, temper tantrums, and the struggle of juggling all the titles mom wear. I love Gabrielle transparency and realness. Most of all I respect how she encourages each mom to find her own path! – L. Compton

The authenticity of this book allowed me to feel that I’m not alone and as moms it’s okay not to be perfect. Everyday is a learning experience and reading this book I was able to relive emotions I had when my children were baby babies and still go through things today. I would recommend this book to anyone especially if they want the reassurance that there is no perfect manual to being a mom. Go ahead Gabby!!! – R. Linsdsay

I laughed, I cried, and I felt everything she was saying. It was so refreshing to read a young mother speak from an honest and candid point of view. I salute you Gabrielle for being a BAD mom!!!! – Anonymous

I want to start out by thanking you Gabrielle for sharing your amazing story with the world. You are an inspiration to ANY mom who may feel as though there ways may not be the right way. Thank you for sharing your opinion and assurance to moms or moms to be that there is NO right way. Each and every child is different, I have had my share of experiences with my two, they are both entirely and completely different in personalities. This book provides a great insight on overcoming struggles we may all have encountered as moms and an understanding that with love and intuition you are already one step above any information a parenting/baby book may provide. Thank you, thank you and thank you once again for sharing! I am so proud of you and loving this book so far! – T. Hubenthal

We often wonder about the plan for our lives. This book will help provide time to reflect on the greater plan that we will never truly know, but must trust. Gabrielle takes us on her authentic journey that has only begun. This is a must read. – T. Alsop
