Great book! May 25, 2010
I really enjoyed this book, along with another Angela Thomas book, "Do You Think I'm Beautiful?" This book helped me reconnect with the pain that my kids go through related to the divorce. This, in turn, helps me respond to my kids in a deeper, more meaningful way.

Encouraging Sep 14, 2009
I am not very religious, I believe in a god, most of the times....life has given me reason to doubt...But I did love this book! It helped to encourage me to be positive, 'try' not to lose focus on what important (kids), others truly do understand! I loved Angela's humor in the book. There was a spot in the beginning that it felt like the religion was preachy, but I honestly just skipped a few pages. I had days when things were very hard, and I read this book to brighten me, push me in the right direction. I honestly don't end up reading most of the books I buy, but I did read this one (besides those few pages I skipped)! I am keeping it to 'refresh' my focus at times I need it. It will be a item i may give as a gift to other single moms. The only reason I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5 was because of the religious overhaul, and the push about using the dream of some 'hunky' man to save me in the end....not my dream....gave it up a long time ago. I did appreciate the fact that angela was so honest, and sincere, and truly heartfelt. I think she did a great job of making sure you understand this is just 'her' story, and hopefully by reading it, we can take something from it. Which I did, this book is a definate keeper! Thanks so much Angela for your book! It gave me some guidance!
Single Mom Life Jun 29, 2009
This book offered many concrete ways to lead a faith-based family. When leading my own small family, it would have been wonderful to have the affirmation from this book that I was doing things well.
All Women Should Read This ! Apr 25, 2009
This is one of the best books for women I have ever read. All women should read this because it helps you to learn how to become "whole" on your own. It helps you to see the reality that the only one you can really depend upon is God; and that He will really take care of you. It also speaks of the damages that divorce can do to children and how you can best avoid some of the pitfalls. I would give a copy to every single or divorced parent I know, even the men would benefit. It is plain and simple truth told in down to earth ways.
