Cora Coulter Bolden, Ed.D., author of Things My Mother Used to Say: A Daughter’s Legacy, has created a powerful, brilliant, timeless legacy of pearls of wisdom that were deeply-ingrained by her mother to serve as an anchor to ensure that when life throws her overboard, she would have the faith to “walk on water.” 

The author’s willingness to candidly share her struggles and vulnerability throughout the book allows the reader to connect the author’s strength to overcome these struggles to the pearls of wisdom taught daily, with an unrelenting thoroughness. 

Dr. Coulter Bolden reminds us of ageless precepts that should be cornerstones in every life, every experience, every overcoming, and every success.  These are the keys to living your best life.
