Item description for Tony Evans Speaks Out On Single Parenting (Tony Evans Speaks Out) by Tony Evans...
Overview If you are a single parent, you know what "alone" feels like. If you had time, you could write a book on stress. But did you know that many places in the Bible show us God's compassion for single parents? Tony Evans points out that God has a system, to ensure that yours needs are met. Even though your situation may be far from ideal, you have an ideal God who delights in extending His grace.
If you've ever wished that you could hold hands with someone other than your child, this book is for you. And if you miss the season of life when you had more grown-up conversations than discussions about Dora the Explorer, this book is for you.
Nearly half of all children born in America are born into single parent homes. Dr. Evans tells of a conversation he had with one of these children: "My heart was broken recently when the son of one of the single parents in our church looked up at me and said, "Pastor, why won't God give me a dad? Every night I ask God to give me a dad, but He won't give me one.""
Single parents have the toughest job in the world because the obstacles can be overwhelming. You've got to work, clean, take care of the kids, help with homework, pay the bills, fix the car, shop for groceries, cook, prepare your income taxes, etc. And though single parents are always around another person, this season can be quite lonely. Additionally, there is often guilt that can creep in and make you feel like you are the worst parent in the world. Though being a single parent is tough, it is also a hopeful season.
In "Help and Hope for Single Parents," Dr. Evans gives an encouraging reminder - You are not alone And your child has the most amazing Parent in the Lord. God can and will help you take care of your children. There is "Help & Hope for Single Parents."
