The day Angela Thomas sold the only thing she had, the diamond from her engagement ring, to take care of her kids was the day she began to believe they were going to make it. In that decision, the faith she had always talked about became the faith she was going to learn how to live. In the years since, God has given Angela a passionate desire . . . to live an amazing life, even while raising four kids as a single mom. In this book she shares her hard-earned wisdom on loneliness, dating, finances, and parenting, encouraging every solo mom. "As a gift to our children," she says, "we can become healthy moms who are strong and amazing women in spite of our circumstances."
Angela Thomas is an ordinary woman and mom, with an extraordinary passion for God. She's been honored to walk alongside women of all ages and walks of life through her books and speaking engagements. Angela received her Master's degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. For more information on Angela, visit: www.angelathomas.com.
As a survivor of a devastating divorce, Thomas is uniquely qualified to report on the subject of single moms. In her book, she encourages the reader, "Press on, my friend. God is for you. The days will not overtake you. As a gift to our children, we can become healthy moms who are strong and amazing women, in spite of our circumstances (p. xvi).
The author has some powerful lessons, goals, plans, and systems she shares. A few of the spiritual and pragmatic lessons mentioned in the book are: God is not mad at you; even when you are lonely you can maintain your integrity; life needs boundaries; and finances must be managed carefully. Through all of the lessons, Thomas' one constant is her relationship with God. His will comes first in every decision.
Though I am not single, My Single Mom Life has encouraged me. One piece of advice Thomas gives that any parent, grandparent, or teacher can use with their children is, "I am responsible to God for your protection. This really isn't about you or being your friend or what you think in that head of yours. This is about me, answering to God for how I have protected you. I don't care if it makes you mad or sad or glad. I am the mom. I will stand in front of God one day, and I'm taking that seriously (p. 74).
So, whether you are a single mom or have someone in your life who is, read My Single Mom Life. It will provide you with invaluable advice. Vicki Borgman, Christian Book Previews.com.

I was laughing and crying right along with her through this book. Her story was so much like my story that I know God must have had her write it just for me.
