Guess What?

I am going back into the Sitting Room with Kathy Chiero next week! I don’t know about you, but sometimes Mother’s Day puts me into a funk. Maybe it’s because I feel so overwhelmed with doing it all by myself. Maybe it’s because I feel like no one really notices how much I sacrifice as a single mom. Maybe it’s because the one thing I really want and need (time away) is the last thing I will get. Maybe all moms feel this way. Anyway, Kathy and I will be doing a special tribute to single moms on the program Mother’s Day afternoon. In Ohio, you can listen live at AM 610 WTVN. Or, you can listen online at here. Show time is 4:00-6:00 pm EST.

Also, I’ve been asked for information about the upcoming Single Mom’s Survive n Thrive conference in Oklahoma City, OK. It will be held at Crossings Community Church the weekend of July 10-11. Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress Janine Turner will be the weekend’s keynote speaker. There will be break-out sessions on Saturday with topics ranging from spiritual growth to handling finances to dating. I will be leading a session on overcoming adultery and divorce. You can find more information and register to attend at ariseministries.net. Hope to see you there!

If there is one thing I could ask of you, please keep me in your prayers. Pray that I might decrease so that my Savior might increase, that others would see him and not me. Pray that I might have the time to prepare and that every word that comes from my mouth would be his and not mine. Pray that he might be glorified in all things!

God bless!

  1. I wished the Single Mom Conference was closer to where I live. It would b nice to meet and talk to and learn from others who know what’s it’s like to walk in my shoes. I’ve been divorced for 12 and half years with 2 kids whose father only saw them the day of our divorce, he didn’t see them the two years we were separate(it took a year and half to finalize the divorce) and hasn’t seen them since.And yes there was adultery in marriage and abuse and try as I may to heal from it and overcome it there are still days that memories haunt mw or the hurt in children’s eyes or voice bc of abandonment from their father makes hurt and angry and some days when things are just too much to handle I get mad at him for not being here to help.

    1. There will always be scars. As long as those hurts, those moments are shorter, less frequent, you are moving in the right direction. As long as that pain is not hidden, stuffed down deep inside, but instead confronted and dealt with, you are making progress. As long as you are allowing God to change you, to heal your hurts, you are on the right path.

      God works with each of us differently, on different timetables, in our own unique ways. Trust him and let him have his way with you.

      I wish you could come to Oklahoma too! You might look at single mom conferences online. There are others across the country!
