So I was asked to write article for the RBM website about being a single mother. In all honesty I can’t say that I have experience or expertise in that. The truth is that my mom has been more of a mother to my boys. It’s hard for me to say but it’s the truth. I had my first son at the age of fifteen. I was nowhere near ready to be a mother at all and then at seventeen I had my next son. I am now twenty- five years old and I am still learning how to be a mother. I get frustrated at them when they don’t listen and I would feel condemned.
One thing God has shown me by being here at RBM is that I don’t have to be perfect. So these articles that I am going to write aren’t to tell you how to become a better mother, but how we as a community can help each other and encourage each other. I don’t want to just write about myself and my story but I want to write about yours. I want you to email me so we can talk about life and we can help each other. You teach me a few things and I can teach you a few things. I want my articles to be focused on how to get the job done, not perfect, but just the best way you can do it. I want other mothers to read these articles and find inspiration in them. I look forward to hearing from you.
