Peace and the Single Mom by Jennifer Maggio
Are you an overwhelmed, exhausted, worn-out, stressed-out and fed-up single mother who is looking for hope?
Are you a relaxed, hope-filled, rejuvenated single mother who is resting in God’s word?
Or are you somewhere in between?
Anticipated to become Maggio’s bestseller yet, this 50-part devotional is designed to be read at your pace. Peace and the Single Mom spans every emotional struggle imaginable from strength & hope to exhaustion, fury, and finding humor in the daily grind of single parenthood. Whether it’s a bad hair day or depression, Maggio covers it. Written in the relaxed, conversational style that she is known for, this book is the calm that every single mother needs in the midst of the storm.
Why I Wrote Peace and the Single Mom?
Fifteen years ago, I found myself curled in a ball in the middle of my cold, bathroom floor, crying hysterically. No one could possibly understand the depths of my pain. When would this misery end? I was a broken. I had no money, few friends, and no hope. How was I going to raise these children alone for 18 years? How could I make it financially? Would my circumstances every change?
My circumstances did change. I made it through those early years of parenting alone. I got involved in my local church, rededicated my life to the Lord, and slowly began the journey of digging myself out of a financial hole. My heart found rest. I leaned on the Lord, when everyone else had failed me. And I never forgot what it was like to be that lonely, overwhelmed single mom.
Peace and the Single Mom: 50 Moments of Calm in the Chaos exists to walk other single mothers through the certain loneliness she has felt, but also to guide her to God’s faithfulness, to wholeness, to humor, and ultimately, to peace. It was written as my “thank you” for all God has done in my own life. It was written as my encouragement to that mom who feels no one understands. I love that it fills a gap in the market, where many single moms don’t need another sermon. They don’t need another book that makes them feel they are light years away from being a good Proverbs 31 woman! They want to hear about God’s grace, His faithfulness, his unconditional love for them. That’s what Peace and the Single Mom is.
Picture Peace and the Single Mom as your girl time with me, as a we sit in your living room, sipping coffee, with our feet on the furniture.
