Two Mothers, A Dying Wish and An Open Heart

Tricia Seaman

Tricia Seaman

When I think about what kind of friend I am, I would say that my friends could depend on me for anything. But that's someone I know. How far would I go to help a stranger? 

Tricia Seaman is an oncology nurse. She is always at the service to others. But one day serving others took on a whole new meaning when she met a patient on her floor also named Tricia (aka Trish). A single mom with an 8 year old son who had been diagnosed with cancer and had no family to turn to. Her cancer was terminal and with a short time to live she asked Tricia to do something for her that would change their lives completely. 

Tricia Seaman wrote a book entirely dedicated to this experience called God Gave Me You. This book tells the true story of how these two incredible mothers met, the immediate bond they formed, and the ups and downs of joining families as Trish’s earthly life ebbed away. This heartwarming tale inspires readers to find the courage to trust in faith and never give up. The miracle of these two families coming together demonstrates that family isn’t always blood; often, it’s made up of the people God gives you if you have a willing heart. God Gave Me You is a story you can turn to again and again when you’re looking for hope, inspiration, and a reason to believe in miracles. 

When I think of what Today's Eden is and how I want it to help encourage us to get back to that "it takes a village" mindset, Tricia's open heart is a perfect example of just that.

Because I know you're awesome like that!  And we all know it takes a village. So the more we share the more we can come together, roar together and conquer this thing called life together. 

Tricia's Most Influential Books:


If you are like me, you have hardly anytime to sit down much less READ. I have made it a point this new year to read more books. Because we cannot grow without learning. But the mom life makes it almost impossible right? That's where I have found my love for Audible. I can fold laundry, walk the dog, cook dinner or be in the car and listening to a good book. Whether it's a self help or fiction book I can fit my reading time in while doing other things at the same time. Multi-tasking! What moming is all about!
