Married Mom, Solo Parent Blog Tour
By Carla Coroy
About the book:
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.
This book is a great helpmate to any parent who has a spouse that is not home often. I love the way that the author lays out the book. I found myself going "Yeah! Yeah!" as I was reading through the Table of Contents. The author writes in an interesting way - almost as a friend or a sister would write to a hurting friend. I enjoyed the person features throughout the book. It helped me see that I am not the only parent that has a spouse that works alot and there really are other women getting through it.
I have to say, the best part of this book was that I didn't feel preached to- I didn't feel like the author was telling me what I should be doing. Rather, the author did an excellent job of "walking beside" the reader, in full knowledge that each person is different and each situation is different.
