You Can Do Hard Things
by Dana Sutton


A mother and her children face the challenges that come along with learning, growing, and changing. As each new hurdle presents itself, her children come to her for help. Mother always reminds them of a very important truth: “You can do hard things.” In a series of vignettes, You Can Do Hard Things presents the trials and tribulations of childhood and adolescence including monsters beneath the bed, learning to apologize, and navigating both love and heartbreak. With a focus on the relationship between parent and child, this story imparts a mother’s lesson not only unto her own son and daughter, but unto readers young and old.


Dana Sutton is a tutor, coach, and parent with decades of experience working with children and young people. She currently provides consulting and accounting services for businesses. A keen athlete while growing up, Dana enjoyed fastball, ringette, volleyball, hockey, martial arts and skiing (both in water and downhill). These days, when she isn’t busy with work or grandchildren, Dana can be found reading a book or riding her motorcycle through Kelowna, B.C., where she lives with her husband and dogs.
