Married Mom, Solo Parent -Review-

Married Mom, Solo Parent: Finding God's Strength to Face the Challenge
By Carla Anne Coroy

About the book:

For married women who feel like single parents.

Bookstore shelves are full of parenting resources for moms who are newly divorced or widowed. But where do moms turn if they feel like a single parent--but they’re not? Whether he is away on business, deployed in the military, or obsessing over a computer game, dad may not be available for a variety of reasons. Moms who parent in this situation still need help and don’t necessarily relate to the advice given in divorce recovery or single parenting resources.
Married Mom, Solo Parent is a common-sense, down-to-earth look at the struggles wives and mothers face when their husband is not actively involved in family life. Writing from her own experience as a married single mom, Carla Anne Coroy will help wives and mothers sort through their questions, such as: Can I do this alone? How do I raise kids to honor their father? How do I give my children a healthy perspective of marriage if they never see one in action? With practical suggestions, anecdotes, and biblical teaching, this book will encourage moms to see their position as a high calling, to find healing for their worries and frustrations, and to tap into God’s strength for help in facing the daily challenge of being a married mom, solo parent.

My thoughts:

The title may read 'Married Mom, Solo Parent' but I feel this book is for every woman: single, married, kids, no kids. I took alot from this book, in fact there are few pages that aren't marked with my highlighter. I learned not only how to deal with my situation at hand but how to talk to God, how to be a better parent, friend, wife, sister, daughter, etc.  In reading this book I realized things about myself, things that I was doing or thinking that were hindering my relationship that I never even thought would be an issue. I'm excited to see the changes that will soon take place in me, in my home. This is a fabulous book. I've already promised my bestie she could borrow it and I know it will benefit her greatly as well. 

Philippians 4:8
Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

Super! I love your review! I love that you use a highlighter! :) You are not the first to say it's for every woman... and I'm so glad you feel that way.

Tell your "bestie" I truly hope she enjoys it! :)
