Amy Morin is a licensed clinical social worker and lecturer at Northeastern University. She's also in international bestselling author. Her books, 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do and 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don't Do, have been translated into 30 languages. She gave one of the most popular TEDx talks of all time with more than 6.5 million views. Her advice has been featured by media outlets around the globe ranging from CNN in Mexico to MTV in Finland.

In today’s increasingly complicated and scary world, do children lack the flexibility and mental strength they need to cope with life’s challenges? With “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings” designed to protect kids, many adults worry that children don’t have the resilience to reach their greatest potential. In 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do Amy Morin identifies the tools that adults—parents, teachers, and other mentors—need to become mental strength trainers.

After her blog post on mental strength went viral in 2013, psychotherapist Amy Morin expanded those ideas in her internationally bestselling book 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do. Now, in her highly anticipated follow up, 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do (William Morrow; September 19, 2017; ISBN: 9780062565730) Amy Morin turns her focus to teaching parents how to raise mentally strong and resilient children in an everchanging world.

As a foster parent, psychotherapist, and expert in family and teen therapy, Amy draws upon her professional and personal experiences in 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do. And while other books tell parents what to do, Amy teaches parents what “not to do,” which she says is equally important in raising mentally strong kids.

Interview w/ Amber Murray of See Your Strength 

Amber Murray is the founder of See Your Strength, a company focused on delivering messages of self love and compassion to improve the mental health of everyone at home, work, and school. Her mirror decals offer encouragement in a place of privacy and solitude: the bathroom mirror. 

This company was born from Amber's personal struggle with suicidal thoughts, anxiety, and depression. She began writing on her mirror as a powerful tool to help her see her worth and learn to love herself. It became immediately clear that there was inherent power in seeing a boost of encouragement next to her own image. In addition to having her mirror decals in schools, businesses, and universities across the nation, she now delivers powerful public speaking messages for all ages where she shares her story of overcoming being suicidal and inspires those in attendance to see their strength.

Lindsay’s goal is to provide hungry fans with trustworthy reviews, awesome recommendations, and stellar recipes, sure to inspire and satisfy the inner foodie in you. Lindsay is a currently a prospect for the new Food Network show Guy’s Big Project.

She writes for Atlanta Eats TV and manages her popular blog, The Hunger Diaries! Lindsay says: “My main life obsession is with food. I grew up with a mother that only cooked delicious meals, and had the appetite of two teenage boys. I started a career in Real Estate, but ditched it because it wasn’t my passion. I then decided to pursue/create my own job through food blogging. Thus far, I have done well at honing my food photography skills, I’ve done a bunch of writing and reviewing of restaurant dishes, and have filmed myself talking about/doing tons of foodie things.”

“My ultimate goal in life is to be a weirder, crazier Rachael Ray. I want to be a trusted figure in the food world and a food personality. I want to go around the world trying food and telling everyone what I think of it. I really can’t think of a better way to spend my life. Other than eating and telling everyone about it, my family is the most important thing in my life. I consider great friends family as well. Without them, I would never be where I am today. I also love cats and have a fat one. His name is Oliver, and he is my favorite/only child.”
