Although some of the resource information in Successful Single Parenting, Going It Alone by Pastor Gary Richmond is a little out-of-date, the practical advice and candid suggestions are still quite current and very helpful.
Successful Single Parenting is for both men and women who find themselves in a single parenting situation, which is extremely common today even in Christian homes. It reads like a counseling session with your favorite pastor. Wise advice. Very wise, but Richmond doesn’t hold any truths back to make sure you are equipped with both Biblical accuracy and answers to your most difficult questions:.
How do we nurture our spiritual lives while going through this period of being single parents?
What do you tell your children when the other parent shows no interest in them?
How much should you tell your children’s school about your home situation?
Another pastor and author, as well as a popular radio show host, Chuck Swindoll, had this to say about Successful Single Parenting:
Personally, I know of no one better qualified to loosen the ties that bind the single parent than my friend and colleague in ministry, Gary Richmond. He not only has much to say, he has the wit and wisdom to say it well.
If you are a single parent, do yourself a favor and read this book! You can find it in the church library.
