Micheles positive self-help book will show women how to acclimate to these new crossroads by giving them examples of how other moms became more aware mentally and spiritually. A few of the chapter topics are: entering the crossroads, relating to in-laws, instilling financial stability, grandparenting, and caring for aging parents. Each chapter begins with a Scripture quote and consists of different real-life stories of struggling women, a step-by-step section on how to adjust to changes and set positive action plans, a mothers prayer, and a thought for the day.
This book is well organized, but its easy for readers to get confused as to which character each story is about because there are so many different stories within each chapter. This isnt a quick-read sort of book. The benefit to the reader will be greatly improved if she takes her time to reflect on and absorb each chapters message. This is a great reference book one that mothers will want to keep handy as their lives continue to change to reflect on over and over again. The back of the book also contains recommended resources for further reading and spiritual growth.
Chapter Sixs Bible verse is from 2 Timothy 1:7. It says, "For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline." I recommend this book for mothers who are looking for a boost with this parenting transition. Be prepared to journey with proactive single moms who look at this new parenting quest as an opportunity to grow and embrace change through the power, love and self-discipline that God has given us. -- Michelle Weidenbenner, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

The saying, Once a parent, always a parent, is so true. In her book Still Going It Alone, Michele Howe offers encouragement and advice for single moms who are approaching the empty nest and looking beyond. As well as accepting the changes that take place in the parent/adult-child relationship, single moms need to look to their futures regarding friends, finances, and job opportunities. And Michele also points out the importance of keeping their lives centered on their Maker.

Calling single mothers toward a future flush with opportunity, Michele Howe invites her readers into others lives while sharing doable steps, heart-felt prayers and poignant excerpts as they release their grown children, change careers or anticipate retirement, consider remarriage and embrace aging. A timely book with a much-needed chapter on preparing your child for marriage using wisdom earned from experience.
