Reviews - What do customers think about Spiritually Single Moms: Raising Godly Kids When Dad Doesn't Believe?
Powerful message for parents Jun 11, 2007
I am not a spiritually single mom yet (no kids), but I will be in a couple of years, and when that happens I will be sure to take Spiritually Single Moms down from the bookshelf for another read-through.
Spiritually Single Moms is an extremely personal book. By sharing her own experiences raising Becky without a Christian husband to help her, Nancy teaches mothers everywhere how to raise children the Godly way while still teaching them to respect and look up to their father, despite him being an unbeliever. We're reminded that even though our husband is not a believer, he's still the head of the household and should be respected and treated as such. It is important to find a way to teach your kids to believe in God, without putting their father in a bad light, because he doesn't.
Finally Nancy reminds us that just as it isn't our fault or responsibility that our husband doesn't believe, ultimately nobody can force our kids to believe either. All we can do is plant and water the seed, and pray that God will help it grow into a strong and healthy tree.
Each chapter addresses a separate point of raising godly kids: answering tough questions, teaching them to serve others, teaching them (and you) to respect and love their father, helping them set healthy boundaries etc. It is concluded with four sections:
--Strength, which gives a key verse that confirms the focus of the chapter.
--Strategies, which offers practical help of how to implement the teachings of the chapter.
--Self-assessment, which provides a list of questions that will lead the reader to a more obedient walk with God through the parenting years.
--Speaking with God, which contains a prayer based on Praising, Repenting, Asking and Yielding.
Even though the book is called Spiritually Single Moms, it is just as relevant for "Spiritually Single Dads." Nancy addresses moms as she is one herself, but dads can easily change the pronouns around and still apply the book to their situation.
Armchair Interviews says: Dads or Moms, this book contains a lot of valuable information.
A Needed Resource Mar 5, 2007
Thank God for resources like this one. The author writes from experience and offers readers strategies, stories, scripture, and sage advice on raising Godly kids when living with a husband who doesn't share a belief in God. Because of the format, Spiritually Single Moms would make an excellent group study book in addition to independent reading.
