Married Mom, Solo Parent by Carla Anne Coroy

For married women who feel like single parents.

Bookstore shelves are full of parenting resources for moms who are newly divorced or widowed. But where do moms turn if they feel like a single parent--but they’re not? Whether he is away on business, deployed in the military, or obsessing over a computer game, dad may not be available for a variety of reasons. Moms who parent in this situation still need help and don’t necessarily relate to the advice given in divorce recovery or single parenting resources.

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.

When this book came out for review I thought it would be a book for single moms, but that isn't the case.  Don't let it fool you.  This book is for the married mom, but the husband is busy or always away for whatever reason, school, job, etc.  Therefore, that leaves the mom to parent the children solo.  I am neither a single mom or a solo mom, but I enjoyed reading this book.  The author speaks from experience.  She shares her heart and thoughts and ideas for solo moms to glean from.  You'll come to realize that there is no formula for preparing yourself for the solo parenting journey that you might one day find yourself in.  Women are often given little warning solo parenting just becomes your lifestyle. This book is a book of resource suggestions, tools, tips and ideas. Yes, I would recommend this book to the solo mom, it is the first I've read on the subject.

Thanks for a sweet review! I'm glad you found all the resources, tips and tools beneficial. It really is a sort of "new" idea having a book for married moms who live life solo. So thanks for pointing that out!

Blessings! and I hope to see you and your readers at the MomChat Facebook Party! :)
