With honesty and insight coupled with much gratitude and some regret, Karen 0'Donnell Taylor talks to God about her concerns and struggles as a single mom. Although some of the experiences around which her conversations--prayers--are written are familiar to married parents (shopping with a teenaged daughter or concerns for their children's future), O'Donnell Taylor incorporates a fresh, positive perspective toward daily tasks and challenges that are especially relevant to single moms: paying the bills, redefining the meaning of family and home, creating new--happy--memories for herself and her children, and feeling overwhelmed at times. The author does not neglect the stress, fear, and loneliness of being a single parent, but her reflections focus on appreciating the moment--being able to provide groceries for her children, for example--and on her hopes and dreams for her and her children's future. The short conversations in A Single Mom Talks to God will resonate in the heart and mind of any single mother.
