Three Wise Moms Explain the Meaning of Life to Their Daughters

From left to write, Moms: Connie Cooper Shepherd, Aisha Jumaan, Natalie Thompson. Daughters, left to right: Shelby, Arwa and Jocie.


Show Note: Three wise moms wanted to communicate 3 things to their teenage daughters: a world beyond social media’s fabricated reality, the sense of anonymity that the media has created, and the anxiety of FOMO; Fear of Missing Out. They all had one thing in common: each had one and only teenage daughters. These women wanted to create an honest space to talk about peace, discovering a meaningful mission in life, and overcoming some tough struggles. Aisha Jumaan, Connie Cooper Shepherd, and Natalie Thompson wrote Three Wise Moms: Our lessons, Your Life. They, indirectly, talk with Sara Jamshidi about how they taught their daughters to take step to convey the message of peace for themselves and others.
