Married Mom, Solo Parent is a common-sense, down-to-earth look at the struggles wives and mothers face when their husband is not actively involved in family life. Writing from her own experience as a married single mom, Carla Anne Coroy will help wives and mothers sort through their questions, such as: Can I do this alone? How do I raise kids to honor their father? How do I give my children a healthy perspective of marriage if they never see one in action? With practical suggestions, anecdotes, and biblical teaching, this book will encourage moms to see their position as a high calling, to find healing for their worries and frustrations, and to tap into God's strength for help in facing the daily challenge of being a married mom, solo parent.

A Cluttered MindRochester, MNAge: 45-54Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5A very helpful resource for womenJanuary 30, 2012A Cluttered MindRochester, MNAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4What in the world am I doing reviewing a book for women, for moms, for "solo parents"?
Well, here's what went through my head when Kregel first contacted me about reviewing this book: We have "solo moms" at Cornerstone, some of whom are the primary spiritual influencers in their children's lives, so-o-o, I figured this book would give me a leg up on understanding them and helping other women to help them.
Well, I was partly right, partly wrong.
This is a very helpful book. I'll say that right up front. The experience of the author alone would be worth it. Add to that the testimonies of many others in similar circumstances and any woman who finds herself in this same position (and there are many) will immediately find those with whom her heart rings.
These married moms, solo parents find themselves married to:
Ã¢â¬Â¢ a man in the military
Ã¢â¬Â¢ a long-distance truck driver
Ã¢â¬Â¢ a busy doctor or lawyer
Ã¢â¬Â¢ an executive, traveling businessman, or workaholic
Ã¢â¬Â¢ an alcoholic
There are hard questions that these women face every day:
Ã¢â¬Â¢ How do I find time to spend with God?
Ã¢â¬Â¢ How can I honor my husband and teach my children to honor him when there are times I wish he'd never come home?
Ã¢â¬Â¢ How can I raise my kids with consistency when my husband comes home and changes the rules?
Ã¢â¬Â¢ What do I do when my kids are suffering in some way because of my husband's absence or lack of involvement?
The final chapter is actually written by the author's husband, Trent. This fascinated me, simply because he's the one who, in part, caused this book to be written. And he admits this, even confesses, if you will. This added an extra note of encouragement. He writes his final words to these suffering women. Yet I think his words would be equally valuable for those men in their lives.
This would be an excellent resource for a women's ministry in the church or for the mom's in your church who find themselves in Carla Anne's shoes.

Carla Coroy shares her own experiences in a down to earth way, gets right to the point on some issues that others avoid or just haven't thought to address, gives concrete and practical advice and does it with care and respect to her husband. It is a must read for anyone who is married, yet raising their kids primarily on their own. It is also a valuable resource for pastors, counselors and anyone who knows anyone going through this scenario. It opened my eyes to what other wives are going through. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

Anna WoodMobile, ALAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Simply Wonderful BookOctober 16, 2011Anna WoodMobile, ALAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Carla Anne Coroy speaks the language of solo Moms everywhere. Her new book, Married Mom, Solo Parent: Finding God's Strength to Face the Challenge is at times heartbreaking, at times humorous and is at all times pointing to God's strength and power. Whatever situation a married solo Mom faces, Mrs. Coroy has words of wisdom for her and something of value to add to her life.
Mrs. Coroy never allows for self-pity. She keeps prodding the wife to look at herself, examine her own heart, stay on track no matter what it is she is facing and no matter why she is in a solo Mom position. That's extremely refreshing and very encouraging for the woman who would find it easy to blame her husband for her pain.
Though there are some issues I wish Mrs. Coroy had prodded a bit deeper than she did, I still feel that she did a wonderful job dealing with issues unique to those of us who find ourselves in the situations she describes. As a Mother who has known much solo parenting, I can say with no qualms that Mrs. Coroy knows what she is talking about. I was deeply touched by this book and would highly recommend it to solo Mothers wherever they are.
