Single motherhood brings with it a unique set of emotional trials, and author Pam Kanaly understands these tribulations firsthand: she raised her two young children on her own after her marriage fell apart. Sustained by her faith in Christ, she began chronicling her journey as a single parent into a diary that one day would become the basis for her mission and this book. The message at the heart of her story-a story that she has shared with thousands of women-is that emotionally stable children come from emotionally stable parents. She continues to spread that message through her ministry, filling each chapter with compassionate advice written with touching candor. Kanaly illustrates, step by step, the journey of how any mother can overcome what she identifies as the nine negative emotions by employing nine positive emotions of transformation. She labels those rollercoaster transitions as: i devastation to acceptancei frazzled to unruffledi inadequacy to confidencei bitterness to forgivenessi loneliness to fellowshipi temptation to disciplinei fear to faithi guilt to gracei defeat to expectation of victoryKanaly uses biblical teaching to inspire women and guide them on a path of understanding, management, and healing. She draws from her own experiences, personal testimonies from other women, and Bible stories to provide comfort specifically for single mothers. Her messages provide an escape from even the darkest of traps. Kanaly's book will empower single moms and challenge them to reach new levels of personal growth while illuminating a pathway to successful parenting when it seems the most daunting.

Dawn Walker and Matt Haviland build a compelling case that not only are single parent families the ?widows and orphans? of this generation, but that it is the Church, not the government, that should be responsible to care for them. Drawing from their own journeys as single parents, Dawn and Matt give heartfelt encouragement to these often marginalized families by sharing how God really sees them, loves them, and wants to heal and restore them. Full of rich insights and lavish grace, they also offer some hard truths about what redemption and restoration really require. Most importantly, they clear a path to help all wounded sons and daughters discover the Father they?ve always wanted and who has always wanted them.

Our understanding of single mothers is broken. Not like, "The x-ray came back and you may need a cast", broken; but, "It's time to evacuate. The levy has been demolished," broken.Mentally, our streets are flooded with ignorance, yet we simply paddle along as if this is the way things are going to be. All things common sense seem to be immersed under the murky waters of, "She should've known better," "She should've been married first," and "It's her fault he ran out. She's the one who chose him." It's bizarre that in a world where cars can drive themselves and phones can recognize thumb prints, we're still committed to such ignorance, but that's about to change.For the last few years I've posted articles, memes, poems, and even viral videos with tens of millions of views on this subject, but like sandbags to an ocean, they've gotten swallowed whole without us, as a society, moving forward one inch. So, I've decided to take things up a notch with Single Mothers are for Grown Men, ONLY! and drain the preconceived notions, biases, and stereotypes once and for all, particularly as they pertain to dating and relationships.This is not some pity-ridden manual about how single moms should feel sorry for themselves. They have nothing to feel sorry about. In fact, they should be feeling the exact opposite if despite what they have to put up with, they're still able to hold their heads up and put one foot in front of the other. This is 130 pages of facts, analogies, and practical examples of how single mothers have been framed for moral crimes they've never committed, and underappreciated for the should-be obvious positive qualities they possess. It's time for a perspective adjustment. If you agree, then you've found the right book. If you don't, then challenge me to change your mind, and yes, I accept.
