An Interactive Children's Book
"Mommy What Are Feelings?"

Are you tired of hearing "Mom, I'm Bored!" Well Dr. Marissa, Celebrity Host/Bestselling Author is here to the rescue!  She will take your kids on a journey to the vibrant color, beautiful sound tantalizing touch & delicious taste of FEELINGS!


I wrote this book about feelings when my darling daughters were 3 and 5, because as I child I was not allowed to feel...I also wanted to capture their cute drawings! 


I made 5000 laminated books and was blessed to sell out in less than 3 years. I had parents telling me that it was their child's favorite book, and that EVERY DAY, it would be the chosen one to read out loud, and during the day, draw the vibrant color, beautiful sound, tantalizing touch and delicious taste of feelings. The book was even recognized by the Autism community as an important tool to help kids express their feelings.


The plan was to find a publisher to take over, but the myriad of other creative projects took over. Then the "Mother" book came out and went #1. In fact, one of the "To Do's" that I was planning on while on tour with 8 Ways to Happiness in China this year was to find a printer to deliver the 2nd printing. But, Covid took over and my Happy88 Mission International Tour was "grounded" literally!


Then a few weeks ago, one of my past guests turned friend and I were talking about what next, and she said, "I am feeling something to do with kids." I thought about the book and said to myself "NO" have to focus on the other book and the show and find a way to stay on track with the motivational speaking tour. Well that industry has not risen from the ashes, and that still small voice said "It's Time."


Because right now there is such a need for ways to support the healing for all of our mental health. Every day I get calls to enlist my help with the unplanned unexpected uncontrollable unsettling uncertain times right now. Alarming rise in suicide, depression, overdose speak to the opportunity for all of us to RISE and help each other get through this fluxed up time!


So instead of just launching the book on it's own, I thought I would use it to also win win and raise funds for my new non-profit 8 Ways to Happiness 501c that helps teens and young adults with free books and programs to help them remember their birthright to be 88% happy...even now.

So if you are a parent that wants to help your kids express the happy and sad feeings during this pandemic, get the e-book download and feel good about donating at the same time!!
