Single Mom Working But Can't Afford Childcare

Here is my story…

I’m a single mother of three children ages 11, 3 and 1 years old. I was always the type of woman that worked and had a job. When I had my 1st child, my son, everything was fine. I was married but later got a divorce but things were still going well for my son and I. Fast forward a couple of years and here I am with three children. Even though both fathers wanted me to abort their child, I chose to keep my kids and raise them on my own with or without the fathers. Why does being a single mom is so hard?

In a one year time period, I've worked for four different companies making good money but unable to keep the job because of not being able to afford childcare for three children. I turned to my family for help with watching my children only for them to charge me the same amount daycare would charge and for that reason, I said forget it! I'll watch my own children and stay home. 

So what do I do God? I mean I have to work in order to take care of my children. I don't mine staying home but what about money?

I've sense in my spirit that God wanted me to quit my current job and stay home with my children. When I thought about money, God placed on my heart the book He told me to write and to just do it and trust Him with the rest. And so I did.

As I quit my job, feeling like a fool and a failure, their was a peace that I felt inside that confirmed to me that I was making the right decision. 

While home, peace returned back unto me. God begin to teach me things that I would have never learned while working at a job. He taught me how to budget, how to trust in Him to meet all of your needs and showed me how He will take what you think is a mess and turn it into a message and movement to help others.

Don't give up!

Trust your gut!

If the door doesn't open, stop knocking on it and create a new door, a new way for you!
