Great Ideas For Family Fun  Nov 3, 2008
This is a great book for single moms, with some especially helpful tips for single moms who are raising sons. The book is well-written and fun to read; you'll enjoy this one!

I also liked the dozens of ideas for family fun --- on the cheap. Simple ideas of how to have fun with your kids without spending a fortune doing it. What single mom has money to spare? I don't know any who do.

It's easy to recommend this book to any single mom who wants some help in raising great kids.

Disappointed  Feb 21, 2006
You know, I was disappointed in this book. I read the reviews and thought it was going to be great, but it wasn't. This book is geared towards women who are older and have been married a long time, mostly stay-at-home-moms, who found themselves, all of a sudden, divorced and forced to go out and work. I recommend it for those women; not for younger, single moms. Young single moms who are already working full time jobs & raising children know the stuff in this book already.
 
Hope and Healing are not only Possible... But Promised!  Mar 6, 2004
Some years ago, a close friend called to ask me if I thought her marriage was in trouble. Within a few months, my friend wasn't wondering any longer. She knew. About that same time another close friend called with the news of her own impending divorce. Both of these women found themselves facing life and parenting on their own.

At the time, the pain of their abandonment felt like death to all who loved them. This heavy chain of unresolved emotions, of dreams and broken promises, left my friends and their children in agonzing pain. Together we wept. One day led to another, weeks turned to months, and months to years. Eventually, healing found root in their hearts and lives. But time alone did not soften the blows. Jesus Christ and his redemptive power at work in my friends' lives did. In ways I can only describe as miraclous, God brought completeness and genuine healing to these moms and their children.

Today, my friends and their children are thriving, not circumstantially, but providentially. Each day continues to birng new trials and struggles as they labor to make their houses into homes where God is the Lord. The fruit of their labor has already multiplied in the hearts of their children and those whom they influence.

Single mom, this book was written in celebration of you. My prayer is that this text, born of the pain carried by other single moms, will bring help and healing along the way.

"O Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me... You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever (Psalm 30:2, 11-12).

 
Practical hope  Sep 15, 2000
This book provides single moms with upbeat, hopeful, and simple ideas to help better parent their children through times of crisis as well at the ups and downs of everyday life. Although it's targeted at the single mother, married moms and dads will find sound biblical advice from the beginning to end. Going It Alone helps single moms realize they're not alone at all!
 
Great Book  Aug 24, 2000
I thought is was a great book. It challenges women to go beyond surviving to truly living. The book contains practical ideas and would be helpful for any parent.
