Author Biography

Roni Wing Lambrecht was just a typical wife and mom from Castle Rock, CO, working long hours to make ends meet, when her entire world changed in a split second. Her beautiful son, Dalton, left for Heaven just after Christmas in 2013 due to injuries from an ATV vs Sandrail accident. Her son, Dalton, lived his short life creating smiles, laughter, and happiness by sharing his kind spirit and helping others through tough times. Roni and her husband, John, now continue his legacy by practicing random acts of kindness in Dalton's memory each day. They also help other parents live in-the-moment with their own children by sharing their truths about regret and finding beauty in the everyday chaos of family life.

Roni's books, Parenting At Your Best, A Parent's Guide for Journaling to Their Child, and A Parent's Journal For Their Child are a tribute to Dalton, with anticipation that the stories and advice they offer will inspire others to excellence in their parenting.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

A Parent's Guide For Journaling to Their Child: Simple Strategies for Writing Heartfelt Love Letters to Your Child by Roni Wing Lambrecht is a refreshing and unique journal written by a mother to her son, Dalton, before he was born. The story is poignant and heartrending because Dalton did not survive to read the beautiful words written by his mom. The book is a useful guide to all those who want to write love letters to their children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or other loved ones and also teaches them to write one in return. The book helps on how to start writing and what to write. It is an honest and direct journal that will help to store memories and precious moments beautifully.

I found the concept interesting and different, and the topics are separated in a way that helps readers to plan their written words. The three sections - past, present, and future - will touch the hearts of all at any given time and the contents are priceless. The grieving process of the author and her husband are palpable through her story and many of us will be able to relate to her loss and what she experienced after losing Dalton. I found the general tips and reminders shared in the book useful, and they contribute in making the journal personal and memorable. The journal is a good gift for weddings, baby showers, and birthdays, and can be kept in one’s personal collection as it teaches everyone to display their love and affection openly.
