Told with the tough-love you’d expect from the powerhouse litigator daughter of a Southern mom, “Wisdom from Momma: Anecdotes and Euphemisms from a True Texas Lady” provides important life lessons with signature Texan wit and charm.
Entrepreneur, lawyer and motivational speaker Michelle May O’Neil published “Wisdom from Momma” as both a guidebook from, and homage to, her mother, Sandra Verdene Crouch May. The book contains life advice from Momma, whose spirit and tenacity guided her and her family through their most trying times.
Michelle shares how each lesson – including “Don’t be Cattle,” “It’s All Just Mickey Mouse,” “There’s Only One Jesus,” and “Fear Is a Useless Emotion” – made an impact on her life and shows readers how this time-tested wisdom can be applied across generations.
As a respected divorce lawyer, Michelle is not one to shy away from difficult topics, and she brings that same candor to her book. She acknowledges her family’s difficulties (her dad battled depression and her family struggled financially) and shows how her mother’s strength and life philosophies were the family’s guiding force.
“Sometimes an author writes a book as much for herself as for the reader,” Michelle says. “Momma’s message needed a home and I wanted to create that home. I hope readers get as much from reading Momma’s wisdom as I have from living it and writing about it.”
Described as a “lethal combination of sweet and salty,” which she undoubtedly inherited from her mother, Michelle is a sought-after public speaker on both legal and empowerment topics. She graduated from Baylor University with her combined bachelor’s degree in business and her law degree in just five years, and that high-achieving attitude continues to this day. She currently runs or co-leads seven different companies, including her law firm, real estate investment company, and media company. Michelle’s other titles include “What You Need to Know About Divorce in Texas” and “Basics of Texas Divorce Law.” She also co-founded “Hell on Heels,” a circle of positivity and empowerment for women lawyers that now has more than 750 members.
A departure from her previous legal topics, “Wisdom from Momma” is ideal for anyone who needs a pick-me-up or a simple refresher course in persistence. Set aside an hour or two, grab a spot on your thinking bench (see chapter eight), and start reading this powerful tribute to a wife, mother, and friend who tells it like it is – with a huge helping of love.
