Raising boys is hard work.
I think we all know that. It’s something that we understand here at the MOB Society. When God blesses you with a boy baby He is entrusting you with a future leader and warrior for His kingdom. Yes, raising boys is hard work.
And it gets even harder when you are trying to do that as a single mom.
Even on my best day with my boys I cannot be their father. I can’t teach them what it means to be a man. I can walk the path to manhood only so far with my boys.
Are you a single mom? Are you struggling with raising a young man on your own?
The old saying, “It takes a village to raise a child” still hold true today. If you are raising a boy on your own you will need a village. We need community, we need fellowship and we need support. Single moms we need each other and we need the love and support of our married sisters and brothers in Christ.
- Are you struggling to find balance between your role as a mom and stand in father?
- Are you looking for support and encouragement but can’t find any?
- Are you looking for a community of people that can relate and support you?
I want to invite you to MOB Chat Facebook this evening.
I will be answering some of your questions tonight as well as encouraging you on this journey. Together, we can do this!
Meet me at 9 PM EST at the MOB Society Facebook page!
Question: Single moms, what’s the MOST challenging part of raising boys alone?
The Life of a Single Mom is privileged to serve single moms in communities across the globe through events, workshops, and conferences. TLSM has a heart helping churches and ministries develop single mom ministries across the country.
Finding a way to encourage positive male role models and influences in their lives. It is hard to ask, and when asked and there is no follow through – it makes it tougher to ask again.
Yes Trena this is something that I hear often. I’ll be talking a little more about this tonight.
