  1. Jessica,
    I give you credit…I honestly don’t think I could do what you do. I work from home with grown kids and I still can’t get it all accomplished. I pray your book will minister to those who want to keep God first in a busy life.

    • Sally,
      Working single moms are unsung heroes in my book! During my separation and divorce, I was a single working mom with two young ones. Those had to be some of the hardest years of my life. Not only was I having to work, but I was having to be both mom and dad. I hated weekends because they were filled with mowing the yard, laundry, grocery shopping, running errands, cleaning. While others enjoyed events with their families, I was continuing to work….just not at my daytime job – which like you said didn’t pay very much. I find that many moms who were stay at home moms and then are thrown back into the workforce have skills that are not up to date and therefore are paid less. Working moms with two incomes is one thing….making it on a single income and knowing you are the bottom line bread winner is a lot of stress. Lifting you in prayer, Sally….you are a warrior!

    • Sally,

      Single parenting is hard both on the parent & child/children. Single working moms have it super hard. You are super heroes. So many times you have to miss stuff at your children’s school due to work. You are lucky if you have a support system to help you with ll the chores, & errands. I pray God sends extra blessings to you all. You are wonder woman doing it all without much recognition or pay.

      Blessings 🙂

  2. Jessica,

    Thank you for writing a very important book. For to long society has tried to pigeon hole women into two categories: either stay home with the children or have a career. You are showing your daughter that you can have both. Women just need to learn balance & how to ask for help. It isn’t easy being a working mom, but it can be rewarding. Family time & self care must be prioritized. Your children must know that they are loved & mom is working because she either has to or enjoys her career.

    Blessings 🙂
