The last thing single moms need is another book heavy on theory and light on practice. They need practical, real-world guidance from an “insider,” from one who has been there in the trenches and foxholes of single parenting and not only lived to tell about it, but delights in sharing in a candid, down-to-earth manner the great challenges she has faced. I am honored that the Lord allows me to be part of all He’s doing on the earth for single mothers. And I am so excited to be able to share with The Life of a Single Mom audience about my latest release, Kids and the Single Mom.
As I travel around the country, I am ever in touch with the challenges of today’s single moms. The book starts with this honest confession: “In my nearly two decades of parenting, I have made some grave mistakes. I have screamed and thrown temper tantrums probably more than my own children, at times. I think back to my years of parenting alone. I was a scared, young teenager who had no idea how to take care of a baby. ‘Someone should still be taking care of me,’ I often thought….” Kids and the Single Mom is a wonderful resource for single moms studying in small groups (includes integrated leader’s guide) or individually.
