Single. A woman of faith. Pregnant. With touching truthfulness and healing honesty, author Susanne Coalson Donoghue delivers joyous confidence to beleaguered and often hurting or lonely single mothers like herself.
Meditations for Single Moms opens by reflecting on biblical women who struggled with pregnancy or childbearing and includes the author's own heartfelt poetry, daily Scriptures, and touching personal stories and wisdom from years of single parenting.
In the devotionals, Donoghue speaks as a trusted friend, telling of the struggles she and other unmarried mothers experience, and about getting over shame and embarrassment and learning to rely on extended family and a faith community. Her own powerful story starts with feeling hurt, lonely, and desperate as a single mother and moves to being a confident and love-filled Christian deeply grateful for the opportunity to raise a promising child of God.
