It happened again. NOOO!!! It’s 2am. I woke up on the couch at 2am, tv blaring, makeup still on, unfinished glass of wine by my side, and dragged my booty upstairs to my bed, only to move a child over, to make room for me so I can sleep 3 more hours getting kicked in […]

Transition Day: The wild roller coaster day where kids are swapped between non co-habitating parents. Are your kids crazy on that day too?! I realize all of us have different stories of how we arrived at single motherhood, and we all have different visitation schedules. For those of us who have visitation schedules with Dad […]

Dear fellow single mom, today, I want you to entertain this thought: “Allow your LACK, to propel you forward instead of hold you back” It sounds crazy doesn’t it? Imagine your lack as the best thing that’s ever happened to you. This is your second chance. I would like you to stop using the things […]

Oh no it’s here. Christmas. What do you do when your holiday celebrations no longer look like the dream you had always envisioned for your family? You make a new dream. It’s supposed to be “the most wonderful time of year” but what do you do when you dread the “handoff” to Dad, when […]

Your picture perfect life is attainable, it’s just the contents of everyone’s picture is different. Celebrate who you are this holiday season and get your family photo taken. You will love looking back at it. This was the first family photo I had taken, 3 years into single motherhood. It’s been six years total now. […]

Father, I thank You that You are able to carry out Your purpose for our lives far over and above all that we dare ask or even think. You are able to go infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, and dreams. (Eph 3:20 AMP) Help us to realize we are good enough to […]

Bring it On! God, You say You go with us wherever we go. So this weekend, I believe and declare that your presence will be all around us! You will go WITH as we head to practices, kids sporting events, concerts, and some fun… God, overwhelm us your peace, love and goodness. Help me to navigate […]

Father thank you for your command to be strong and courageous, and immediately promising that You will go with us everywhere we go. Help us to remember today that it’s not just an option, or a good idea. You command us to do it. Like You command us not to worry, and not to be afraid. But, […]

Papa, we are thankful that Your love for us is relentless. Even if people give up on loving us, You never will. Lord, today I pray that you would help us fully embrace Your relentless love. Your word says, “There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear […]

Tomorrow you have an opportunity to show the world LOVE! No matter what your relationship status is, this is a prayer for you to make Valentine’s Day the best ever by giving love away to your loved one, family, friends, even perfect strangers.

Father, today as we pray, we breathe out our worries, feelings of lack, limitation, and unworthiness. We breathe in Your comfort, provision, possibility, and unconditional love. God, I breathe out my weakness, and breathe in Your strength and power over any and all situations. Let’s do this. For You “give strength to the weary and […]

Remember that children’s book, “The Little Engine that Could”? He pulled a train full of toys up a hill by saying “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.” Today’s prayer is to help you “think you can” too and change the thoughts in your brain from doubt to confidence. Father, […]

Father, since You are the creator of every plant, every person, and every planet; today we ask for Your help in creating the life we dream about. For Your word says, “Everything was created through him; nothing – not one thing! – came into being without him.” -John 1:3 (Message) Lord, we ask for Your […]

The world needs the comeback story within you! You can be like Tom Brady too! The Patriots had his back, God has yours! God thank you for fighting our battles! Help us improve our mental game. I don’t want to see how bad things are! Give us a winning attitude that no matter what comes […]

Father, when circumstances in life feel limiting, when faults and failures make us feel ruined, remind us that we have the power to change all that, because we have You! For your word says your faithful love never ends, and your mercies never cease, they begin afresh each morning. (Lam 3:22-23). You also instruct us […]
I just found your website and listening to your show, early this morning, as God guided me to you/your resources. You gotta love those early-bird devotional times with God sometimes, when he needs your attention and you need his. I Just wanted to send a HUGE thanks, from one struggling single parent, who needed that fresh air and a sense of relief that you provided, when I heard and found you on the radio/your website today. What you do and stand for is so powerfully encouraging for the single parent world. Sad to say, much of our world chooses not to make room/support single parenting; even though we make up more than half of the worlds population almost. So, please keep spreading your bravery onward to the world, who all desperately await for Gods love through you/your resources.
