Pam gives great insight of her own story, but also she captures nuggets from other single moms helping everyone realize they are not alone and don’t have to feel isolated. But beyond her story and the stories of other single moms…Pam brings bible stories that help make God’s truth and God’s hope practical for every single mom out there. The heavenly becomes the practical. In fact Pam asks this question in Chapter 2, “How can you funnel the ‘Milky Way God’ down into your fears, so you have a tangible piece of His power, something sufficient for breaking the visible strongholds of your nagging uncertainties?” And Pam doesn’t just ask the question, she provides a down to earth answer you can wrap your hands around.
Have you had a fear of the unknown? This book is for you. Have you had feeling you can’t handle anything else? This book is for you. Have you wondered why God has let this happen to you? This book is for you. Have you strayed off the path of what you knew to be right in the past? This book is for you.
This book will encourage you, comfort you, challenge you and give you great hope in the midst of the rollercoaster of your life and all the emotions you face as a single mom.
It would make a great gift for mother’s day if you know a single mom!
In the first chapter Ms. Kanaly writes about Accepting "What Is." Pam makes an illustrative reference using "Following the Yellow Brick Road" from The Wizard of Oz. This part of the chapter is broken down into three bricks to represent the crisis, transition, and emergence stages of life. As a visual learner I enjoyed the comparisons that were made which allows the reader to identify with and work through issues in a realistic manner.
This book is very well written. I preordered my copy last month and it's already flying of the shelf. I feel that along with single mothers, anyone that has a heart for serving this community at any capacity (i.e. close friends, church and/or family members) can and will benefit from the material in this book. Pam speaks truth in the most gentle and loving way. This book was written from a former single mom to all single moms. Buying this book is a necessity for any home library. I this it is also a great gift for all single moms. I can't wait to dive into the rest of it.
