Here's Hope For Your Own Journey Mar 26, 2007
Reading this book by Sandra Aldrich, you'll find yourself wanting to reach out and give her a hug. Like all of us, she's been through so much! Her journey may be different than yours; I know it is different than mine. But her words are full of comfort, hope, and useful help. I strongly recommend this book, especially if you've become a single parent because of the death of your partner. I would also highly recommend a new book for single parents that focuses on the children: how to raise confident, successful, well-adjusted kids even if you're doing it alone. The book is called Raising Great Kids on Your Own: A Guide and Companion for Every Single Parent
A warm, intimate book Dec 20, 2004
From One Single Mother To Another is a warm, intimate book that begs to be read by every single mother out there. It's no coincidence that the cover features two tea cups since Sandra's style is very much that of two friends chatting over afternoon tea.
I appreciate Sandra's open style, her vulnerability, and her practicality. There is so much spiritual wisdom packed into this book. Whether you are a raising your children on your own due to death, divorce, or some other life choice, this book can help you sort through the issues from parenting to finances, and more.
From One Single Mother to Another (or simply Mom to Mom) May 9, 2000
From One Single Mother to Another is written by Sandra P. Aldrich. In the short space of thirteen chapters she describes from the sudden death of her husband up to her children being grown the trials and joys of Christian single parenting. Her writing is down to earth and full of wit and wisom acquired only through experience. It is written one to one. It is written for the single parent, not for an organization. It's intent is to encourage single parents that the task is possible. One thing she taught her children that stood out to me, another single parent, is this: Single parent families are still a family. They are just smaller by the loss of a parent. She also states her pet peeve, that single parent families are "broken homes". She knows from experience that with God's help and lots of personal effort our homes are healed. As a single parent of many years I say a hearty Thank You! to Ms. Aldrich for her frank, compassionate, and sometimes humerous advice for single parents.
