How will your family declare victory as your future over condemnation? How can today's single moms realize a life that is rich with respect, honor, love and prosperity for yourself and more importantly for your children? Can you do all of this on your own as the head of the family or do you need a man? This book tells of personal stories which are sure to connect with women who share experiences related to issues of being a single mother in America; understanding your children, failed relationships, your past, moving on and moving forward. In addition to the scriptures and stories, within each chapter you will find research, and expert advice and resources. As you read through When You Have To Be The Man, you will be challenged to open your heart and mind to see where God has brought you from realizing and accepting how some parts of your past were actually necessary to go where He wants you to go and grow. An extraordinary life for you and your children does exist with Jesus. He will be the Man if your life and in your home if you will allow Him.
