7 Lessons I Learned As A Single Mother (Part 2)

In Faith

Do you feel like something is blocking your relationship with God? Do you look at God’s promises to believers and then wonder where He is in your life? I think that these are common questions that arise during our Christian journey. One of the things that I struggled with was knowing the Word of God, but then struggling to believe that it applied to me.   I mentioned last week in Part 1, that God has been taking me through a period of introspection and during this time I had been focused on developing a deeper relationship with God. Last…

7 Lessons I Learned As A Single Mother (Part 1)

In Faith

Lately, I feel like God has been taking me through a period of introspection, and I’ve had so many thoughts running through my mind. It’s been a time of searching, finding peace, learning from various experiences throughout my life, and seeking God to be able to hear His voice so He can be my guidance going forward. As much as I talk about God being my guide, it is so hard to take my hands off of the wheel and truly give things over to Jesus. It’s also hard to not define myself by past mistakes and really see the…

Father’s Day can be an emotional day for single moms. It may be a day you are reminded you are the only parent and that the biological father isn’t in the picture.

God Loves Single Mothers Too- An Open Letter to Single Moms on Mother's Day

God Loves Single Mothers Too: An Open Letter to Single Moms on Mother’s Day

In Faith

I really wanted to write this post to celebrate the single moms on Mother’s Day. I think that it is extremely important because unfortunately, we can experience judgmental, condescending, and critical attitudes from others because we are single moms. Sometimes people say, “They must have done something to deserve it,” “they made a bad decision,” etc. However, in all of the criticism, these judgmental attitudes fail to address the elephant in the room – we, mothers, chose to stay and parent our children. We didn’t choose to leave. In 1 Timothy 5:8, the Bible says, “But if anyone does not…
