Author/Artist Review

Author: Michele Howe
Located in: LaSalle, Michigan
Submitted: May 23, 2000

    What was your motivation behind this project?  Some years ago, a close friend called to ask me if I thought her marriage was in trouble. Within a few months, my friend wasn't wondering any longer. She knew. About that same time, another close friend called with the news of her own impending divorce. Both of these women found themselves facing life and parenting on their own. At the time, their pain of abandonment felt like death to all who loved them. This heavy chain of unresolved emotions, of dreams and broken promises, left my friends and their children in agonizing pain. Together we wept. One day led to another, weeks turned to months, and months to years. Eventually, healing found root in their hearts and lives. But time alone did not soften the blows. Jesus Christ and his redemptive power at work in my friends' lives did. In ways I can only describe as miraculous, God brought mpleteness and genuine healing to these moms and their children. Today, my friends and their children are thriving, not circumstantially, but providentially. Each day continues to bring new trials and struggles as they labor to make their houses into homes where God is Lord. The fruit of their labor has already multiplied in the hearts of their children and those whom they influence. Single mom, this book was written in celebration of you. My prayer is that this text, born of the pain carried by other single moms, will bring help and healing along the way. "O Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me...You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever." (Ps. 30:2, 11-12).
