God Loves Single Moms by Teresa Whitehurst ~ review

God Loves Single Moms: Practical Help for Finding Confidence, Strength, and HopeFrom the Back Cover

God Is on Your Side

Teresa Whitehurst knows what it's like to be a single mom. She faced many challenging times when money was short, when her back was aching, and when her spirits sagged from trying to "do it all" without letting anyone know she needed a little rest or assistance. Over the years she learned that both she and her children benefited when she stopped trying to be perfect; admitted her needs, frustration, loneliness, or fatigue; and reached out to God and to supportive friends and family.
In God Loves Single Moms, she offers you down-to-earth advice on navigating the world of single motherhood with confidence and hope for the future. Packed with practical tips, smart strategies, and ways to improve your family's well-being, this book tackles your most pressing issues, like self-care, developing a support network, organization, finances, discipline, and more.
It can feel like you're struggling through life on your own. But you have a partner who wants you to succeed and wants your children to flourish. God loves you and wants to guide and support you every step of the way. Whether you've never married, you're divorced, or you've been widowed, you and your children deserve the best life has to offer. And while you may get weary, you need never feel alone.

My take on this book:

God Loves Single Moms Practical Help for Finding Confidence, Strength, and Hope, is an easy to read book that while great for the single mom also has useful information for all mothers.

Raising children when you are a part of a couple is scary enough, to do it alone as a single parent could seem like an overwhelming responsibility, in this informative book the author shares the wisdom she has gleaned from doing just that, as the single mother of two, she is sharing valuable information that she has gained along the way.  The book is  filled with mini quizzes, advice, useful tips, and scripture peppered throughout, and all of this information is written in a very down to earth way.

She also reminds the single mom that she needs to take care of herself, and not be afraid to admit that she needs help. She also stresses the importance of prayer, and adds a prayer at the end of each chapter.Although single mothers may not have an earthly partner, God is right there willing to lead them and guide them thru whatever difficulties they may face.

“Available November 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”

Even though I was provided a copy of this book for review it in no way alters my opinion of this book.
