Heroes in Our Midst: Inspirational Faith Stories for Single Moms
by Susan Sweet,Chris Coffman
Single Mom - You Are a Hero!
You may not consider yourself one. You may have never been celebrated as such. In fact, the culture may be treating you much differently. In some circles, you feel as though you have failed and that you and your children are now a burden on society. Your potential has been stifled, your dreams will never be, and your only chance at redemption can be found in marriage and taking on the appearance of a “normal” family.
Do not let the opinions of others define you. True heroes are admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. You, the single mom, are a warrior standing in the gap to lead, nurture, and protect your children. You are, by definition, a hero.
Heroes in Our Midst chronicles the lives of eight single moms who rose above their adversities to carve out better lives for themselves and their families. Each real-life story weaves together the challenges, the setbacks, and the limitations these women faced with the inner strength, determination and fortitude that propelled them beyond their circumstances to succeed. In each case, the Helping Hands for Single Moms scholarship program played a supportive role as these moms went to great lengths to achieve their academic goals.
Every mom in this book thought at one time that she was no one special, just another of society’s single moms. Learn from and be encouraged by the power fierce love has to change a mom’s life for the sake of her children.
