Marvelous Mom

We’ve all read the statistics. We all know someone who is a single mother. We’ve all judged them and we’ve done so often times knowing the ‘truth’ about their situation. There have been initiatives from education to shaming to try and prevent unwed births. I for one don’t encourage anyone having kids unless they can care for them emotionally, physically and financially. If you elect to do it alone, bravo. It can be done. It’s not the way God designed a family but it doesn’t equate to a child or the children growing up to be problematic.

I wasn't trying to be matchy matchy but the handbag appears to be all wrong. Your thoughts?

I’ve been thinking of what I can do to shed some positive light on single moms who are raising amazing children despite the factors that gave them the title. We are handling our business and our kids are honor students, thriving, growing, aware of community and societal issues, good readers, love math, athletes, artists, have the other parent involved, surrounded by a village, mentored and just plain old soaring. Why can’t that ever be reported in the media?!

Since this is my gosh darn blog, I plan to do that here. I’d love to feature you or a mom you know who you want to salute or thinks should be recognized for her commitment to her children, taking care of herself and desires to see other moms succeed. She doesn’t have to be on FLOTUS or Hilary Clinton’s status. She can be a housewife, a banker, entrepreneur, real estate agent, or college student. Her story must inspire, can be entertaining and even makes us cry. I want the blog world to know about her! I want to change the mindset of what we think about when we think of single moms! I want to shed positive light on our journey!

Dress: ASOS
Handbag: Old
Shoes: Just Fab

Will you help me do that? Sound off below if you know someone who would be great for a Mom Feature here on the blog or have them email me at

Happy Friday,

Thanks for the support friend! All single mom's aren't ratchet and all single mom's aren't good moms. I want to showcase the positive. After looking at the pics again, I agree the bag blended well. It doesn't always need to be exact.

That's exactly how I felt. It was a good worship dress. I didn't have any worries that anything would be exposed if I danced before the Lord, lolol!
