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 […]

It’s time to create a vision for you life. Yes, it may feel like your life just came crashing down and is a big stinking pile of dung, but let’s use that dung for what it’s best for, fertilizer for new growth. This unexpected turn in your life is not the death of you. If […]

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. […]

How to Choose Dignity in an Undignified Situation Ugh, we just got into another fight. What is it about planning a holiday visitation with your kids that always seems to cause stress, anger, resentment, and well I’ll just be honest childish behavior?! I want to do better. I have to do better. I’m learning that […]

The single most important thing I want you to know as a single mom: You are a whole family. You are not missing something, you are not lacking, you are not incomplete, you are not broken, you are important, and you have a legacy to build. Don’t. Give. Up. Question: What do you want people […]
Dear Single Mom, He sees you. He sees you stay up late to finish your laundry so your son has his favorite shirt to wear to school tomorrow. He sees you as you finish work, rush home to get your daughter to dance class, and collapse at night on the coach too tired to drag your […]

Father, thank you for protecting us! I am amazed that the US has done this 44 times, and peacefully transferred power. Father, I ask that You would do it again! I believe you will make the protests peaceful, the crowd on the mall calm, and celebrations honor You tomorrow on Inauguration Day. -In Jesus’ name, […]

Are you ready for a change? I believe in an instant that God can change the trajectory of your life when you pray BIG. I love this thought. Trajectory means the path followed by a projectile flying object moving under the action of given forces. That’s how powerful God is. Imagine God catapulting you onto […]

Papa, thank you for setting us free! Oh we are so grateful that you have set us free from perfection! It’s okay to be a mess. We belong to you, we are your mess, and you are the one that promises to clean us up. Father, I run to you with open arms, grateful that […]

Father today, I choose joy. I choose happy! I welcome you today to control my thoughts and my mind. For You say that Your joy consumes any trace of depression and anxiety. For Your word says, “letting my sinful nature control my mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control my mind leads to life […]

Father, in this new adventure of life I am on with You, help me to not go back to living life for my own personal desires. For I know that will be my downfall. Oh it’s so easy to give into tempations of living a life of pleasure. I don’t want to be fooled by […]

Father, I believe that Your power is limitless. The only limits I have are the ones that I allow. I want to be the kind of person that doesn’t say, “I would if I could God” but the kind of person that declares, I can and I will because I know that You are with me […]

Oh Lord thank you for not expecting me to be perfect! Lord, free me from the urge to compare myself with what others have, and help me to be confident in the person that you have created me to be. For this is what You say You require of me: “To do what is right, […]

Big changes are happening in our government this month! I don’t know about you but change makes me nervous! Instead of being nervous about it though, I know what I’m supposed to be doing, praying. So, would you join me in praying for our leaders? Today, I’m asking that God would raise up a leader […]
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.
