I’m the oldest of four girls, raised by a single mother; raised by a single mother. Sadly godly men, were not abundant in our family.
Being raised by a single mother raises the risk of teen pregnancy, marrying with less than a high school degree, and forming a marriage where both partners have less than a high school degree.
Here is where this gets personal, I am the poster child for this very statement.
It only takes a few godly men to change an entire generation.
My son, was born just 2 months after I turned 18. We were joyful, but neither my husband or I were emotionally, financially, or mentally ready for what was to come.
Thankfully, at this particular time, two men, re-entered our lives.
My mom’s brother and my newly retired father-in-law.
The influence of these men, in both mine and my husband’s life shaped the very core of our character.
The plea from a mom of girls.
Raising godly boys, who respect women is very near and dear to my heart. After my son was born, the Lord gave me five girls.
