About the Author:

Saren adores her five energetic, adventurous, precocious children but doesn't totally adore the mess and busyness and bickering that that comes with them! She grew up all over the world, went to college and grad school in Boston, ran enrichment programs for kids and then finally found her Mr. Right, Jared. When she's not trying to answer five different needs and questions at once, she works on The Power of Moms, runs some programs at her kids' school and operates a little preschool curriculum company. She currently lives in Ogden, Utah and loves reading, hiking, and biking with her family (or by herself when possible!). She often struggles with balance but finds joy in being involved in many things that are meaningful to her.
