Simple lil blog about my struggles with being a New Christian, a single mom, and having an overthinking brain!

What's the biggest misconception people have about single parenting?

I think that as a single mom we are always struggling. We make bad choices. We can't keep a relationship. That its our fault that we are single parents. That we put ourselves above the needs of our kids.

What's the most rewarding thing about being a single parent?

As selfish as it sounds- being the only parent. Being the main one to love and comfort your child(ren). Being the main one they come to when they have something exciting to tell you or when they have a problem. Not having to share that love and attention on a regular basis.

What's the most important thing being a single parent has taught you?

How to be strong. I have to be both mom and dad on a regular basis. I have learned how to mulit-task. I have learned I am not perfect at parenting nor will I ever probably be, there will always be someone out there who thinks or is doing it better than me. I have learned unconditional love and how there is no shame in getting on your knees in tears praying to Jesus Christ for help.
