Unmothered: Life with a Mom Who Couldn’t Love Me

Phylis Mantelli is an author, mentor, and speaker based in Silicon Valley. In overcoming her own childhood hardships, she has become an advocate for the unmothered— a mentor for women who have experienced mother/daughter dysfunction. Phylis nurtures a beautiful community of women; sharing truth, showing compassion, and expressing love to the daughters of women who didn’t know how to love them.

In her memoir Unmothered: Life with a Mom Who Couldn’t Love Me, popular blogger and speaker Phylis Mantelli takes readers on the roller-coaster journey of growing up with an alcoholic, narcissistic mother. Though often made to feel worthless as a daughter, Phylis, by God’s grace, eventually breaks through the pain and replaces it with a heart of a daughter who loves her mom unconditionally. Her book offers hope and encouragement to those struggling with dysfunctional family relationships.
