The last thing single moms need is another book heavy on theory and light on practice. They need practical, real-world guidance from an “insider,” from one who has been there in the trenches and foxholes of single parenting and not only lived to tell about it but delights in sharing in a candid, down-to-earth manner the great challenges she has faced and the abundant wisdom God has given her to meet them.
