HOUSTON, May 6, 2012 - Darlene Brock is a working mother who raised two beautiful daughters. She’s also a very successful author whose past experience includes serving as COO of Forefront Records, working as an artist manager, and producing award-winning music videos. Today, Brock and her husband Dan are the founders of The Grit and Grace Project, which is devoted to supporting women by helping them live fulfilling lives and achieve their full potential as individuals, wives, and moms. The couple hit upon their company’s name by joining together what Brock regards as the two primary strengths innate in women: Grit and Grace.

“This book,” says Brock, “is about what I learned about the jobs you need to master, the advice from other women that helped me, as well as some realities about the life and culture we live in that informed my perspective. You can take on the most difficult job in the world – raising daughters – and not only live to tell about it, but smile along the way.”

Help Wanted: Moms Raising Daughters,” is Brock’s debut book. In it she discusses thirteen metaphors keyed toward the diverse roles moms fill. Each chapter is packed with insightful information and advice on how to raise children while at the same time holding down a job and maintaining a healthy marriage.

Each of Brock’s thirteen roles gets its own chapter:

1. Coach
2. Creative Counselor
3. Time Manager
4. Media Director
5. Academic Advocate
6. Professor of Gender Studies
7. Relationship Counselor
8. Sex Ed Teacher
9. Financial Consultant
10. Bodyguard
11. Communications Specialist
12. In-Home Demonstrator
13. Military Strategist

The book’s conclusion is aptly—and positively—titled, “Take the Job! It’s a position you need to accept.”

Brock has appeared on Fox News, CNN, Daytime TV, and been given friendly nods by media critics and bloggers alike. Thursday, May 10, 7:30 p.m. Central Daylight Time (8:30 p.m. EDT), you’ll get your chance to ask her your own questions. Brock will be joining The Washington Times Communities journalist Jennifer Grassman for a live online SeeTalkGrow interview, during which Brock will converse in real time with attendees, share parenting stories, and expound upon her enormously successful career as a working mom and wife.
