The dangers of single parenthood

My Mom is an amazing woman (thanks, Mom!). And she is a tough woman: Being a single mom to two children while holding down a full-time job is a rough gig. Because she worked 60+ hour weeks, I learned how to cook and clean, as well as how to look after myself and get myself where I needed to go. I'm probably a more independent person today because of her.…

A Single Mom's Forgiveness

I have lost count of how many times I've heard or seen this phrase written somewhere.

"Forgiveness Is For You!"

Forgiveness is your path to emotional freedom. Nobody wants to be a slave to anger! I can't sit here and pretend that forgiving someone, who has caused more pain then you can imagine, is an easy thing to do. I can't sit here…

I DO believe in child support: From a mom who doesn't accept it.







I have been noticing an anti child support trend lately.  I see articles popping up everywhere from women who claim not to believe in it.

Why #ichoose Scentsy

Before I joined Scentsy I was struggling working 2 jobs and practically homeless. After some mis-communication over parking tickets my husband and I decided to work on our marriage.

Have you ever thought about becoming a Work At Home Mom (WAHM)?  I thought about it long and hard the day I sat down and calculated how many students I had suspended, and how many had been arrested in just one week. When my daughter was born I took one look at her and knew that I had to figure something out fast.

Now back to my question. Have you ever dreamt of a job…

Finding a Compromise

View post on SingleMomStyle.com

Starting when Hana was a toddler, I’ve raised her to be very polite and respectful. Hana always uses please and thank you, excuses herself from the table, and asks before taking. Her teachers constantly rave about how obedient and helpful she is in school. I beam when people tell me how well behaved she is and how amazing her manners are. There had been no…

First of all, I cannot stress enough how instantly we clicked and how completely enamored we were with each other. Anyway, he got some news that he had to leave for a while because he’s in the military. As bad of a…

Single Mother's Day

Even though I’m a mother myself, I’ve always knows Mother’s Day to be focused around my mother and typically include the four F’s of Mother’s Day: faith, family, food and flowers. This Mother’s Day, however, will be a little different. My mom is on vacation and living up her retirement, rightfully so, but she won’t be around for actual Mother’s Day. My brother and I…
