About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Married Mom, Single Parent Blog Tour

   Married Mom, Solo Parent is the perfect book for all those amazing Moms that do the work of both parents so often that they feel like they are single.  You know who I'm talking about- military wives, ladies with husbands who travel extensively, Moms that have husbands that are ill or perhaps they just have issues that interfere with life (computer addiction, alcohol, etc.).  We have all been there at some point in our lives and it's not fun.  
   The author, Carla Anne Coroy, has endured and lived this life and is here to help!   Through Bible verses and stories such as Hosea and Gomer and Job she guides us down this bumpy road.  There are lists of ideas for building friendships, tips on discipline, encouragement for meal times and keeping house and inspiring ways to keep yourself energized and happy so that you can be the Mom you want to be.  This book is packed full of ways to help you stay married (and even thrive!) as a married, single parent when sometimes you just want to quit.  It's wonderful!

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.

Sounds like a book I could definitely have benefited from when Chris was traveling all the time. I often felt like a single mom and it can be hard, at times. Great review, as always!

Thanks for your great review! I'm so glad you found it 'wonderful'!

It's my prayer that moms would find the hope they need to live with joy no matter what stage they are at.
