Language Barrier

I am searching for heartfelt and inspirational stories about mother-daughter relationships, stories that share wisdom and teach important moral and life lessons, stories from which daughters and moms might derive hope and guidance after reading them.

What did you learn from this unique parent-child relationship, how it has changed over the years, how you two dealt with conflict, etc? The stories can be about good or bad times, as long as the result is something others can learn from. There are no format or length requirements.

For more information about submitting your story, please visit my website, www.gregoryelang.com, and click the red corner on the home page, just beneath the “Projects” tab.

I’m also conducting recorded telephone interviews for those who prefer to tell rather than write their story. Just send me an email with your phone number and dates/times you are available. Interviews typically last 30-45 minutes.

If you’d like to submit a daughter-mom photo to display on this blog, please email it to greg.lang@mindspring.com.

If this is your first visit to my blog, please read the Frequently Asked Questions posted on March 20, 2008.

The deadline for submitting your story or participating in an interview is August 1, 2008.

Now on to today’s post~

Rather than write about my books today, I am going to ask you for help. A friend of mine is a Korean woman who has recently been diagnosed with Lupus. She speaks English very well but cannot read it. All the Patient Education information that has been given to her is printed in English. I am trying to locate information written in Korean. I’ve spent hours on the phone with medical boards, local hospitals, the Korean General Consulate and others, but still nothing. If you happen to have a Korean friend too, one who can tell me where to obtain the information my friend needs, please send me an email with contact information. Thanks so much.

Good morning! Thank you for the opportunity to submit a bit about Mom for possible inclusion in your latest book. Summarizing the influence my Mom has had on my life is something I've wanted to do for a long time, and now I have the impetus to do so!

Of course, this is probably something we should do just because it would mean the whole world to our moms, but, well, you know, these things keep getting kicked to the bottom of the priority list. Bad, very bad. :-)))

Warmest regards, Ronda

Hi Greg,


I'd love to contribute to your book, I think the whole perception on mother-daughter relations is great, its one of the toughest things to maintain...but anyways, feel free to contact me because i LOVE writing and I can impose some great stories and life-learning lessons amongst this subject.
