Godparents, mentors, guardians, fairy godmothers, spiritual guides, pirate parents, aunts, uncles…
Welcoming a child into the world is a beautiful time to celebrate. Whether you are having a naming ceremony or a baptism, one of the big decisions you will have to make is “who will be the godparent, supporting adult or mentor for my child?” And, for the specially chosen godparent or mentor, comes the question “what do I do?” This guide takes you through an easy yet comprehensive step-by-step process to answer both of these important questions.
Eleanor Roosevolt wrote, ‘I think, at a child’s birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity.’

What People Say About ‘How to be an Inspiring Godparent, Mentor, Guardian’:
Wendy, your book is informative, interesting and easy to read and understand. It gives such positive and constructive ideas to those choosing godparents or mentors including wise advice e.g. stories about one’s own childhood not ‘when I was your age’ etc. You reinforced a lot of my own thoughts and actions that I put into rearing my own children and being a new grandmother I took on board what you have written. From a mother, grandmother and celebrant’s view I can honestly say that whoever reads your book will gain a variety of ideas and knowledge from all the options you have offered.
