Single Mom ME (1)

Motherhood is tough but,

You’re not alone.

I was once a single mom and in those days I thought I’d pull my hair out. I probably would have, except I was too tired to lift my arms. I truly wanted to forget those days, but God had something else in mind.

I’ve always known God wanted me to write. So when He planted the seed of a devotional book for single moms in my heart, I knew this was something I had to do. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t so gung ho at first. In fact, I distinctly remember looking up to Heaven, saying: “you want me to write what?” I may have even had a couple “But God…” conversations. Yet, God patiently reminded me that my job is to be faithfully, joyfully obedient to His calling and “write it down and make it plain” (Habakkuk 2:2). 

I pray I did just that.  Besides, if God can use my life’s comical, stressful, and even heartbreaking moments to encourage someone else, then it was all worth it.
