Mom and Boys

Figuring it out one day at a time.

My Story

I originally started this blog in 2010 during the start of a rough patch in my life.  I could feel myself separating from God and I was desperately trying to steer myself back in the right direction but I had doubts or questions about mere Christianity that filled my head and had to be let out.  During this time of questioning and separation from the God that I known most of my life I started to watch my life crumble because of my bad decisions.

I separated from my husband.

I became pregnant.

I divorced my husband.

And I am now  a single mother.

So I am going to try and figure it out- my life, I mean.  Can I survive my sins?  Do I have the strength to be a good mother?  Can I manage financially?  Will my relationship survive?  Am I worthy of love?  Will my sins always follow me?

Can I raise a beautiful, God-fearing, responsible, loving son all by myself?

I can.  But I have a feeling the road will not always be easy.

  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I love your writing. There’s a great edge to it 🙂 Peace and strength with you upon your journey, and come back by anytime.

  3. It will not always be easy but life never is. With God’s help, you can do it though!

    Thanks for reading my blog today.

  4. You have a beautiful son and that will be your strength. Every time I was tempted to stray from my path, my son, daughter and wife were my anchors and I tried hard to not let them carry the burden and stray too often. As you recognize from my blog, not everyday is perfect, but the lifetime trend has been a fairly decent stroll in the park with lots of fond memories.

  5. I am here right along side of you! We can do this with God’s help!..I’m following now.

  6. of course you can. I do not actively practice any religion but I to practice myself. Life is not easy always, but I do what I can to strive on my path to happiness.

  7. Keep the faith, keep smiling. Your son is the reason that you can do it! He’s adorable!

  8. your raw honesty is inspiring.

  9. We have a similar story, in some respects. What are the sins you are hoping to survive? I guess I don’t think of ‘sin’ as the bad/hurtful choices we all might make at times, but as being out of alignemnt: with my purpose, with God’s purpose, with life.

  10. Thanks for continuing to share your story. I wanted to let you know that I nominated your writing for a Beautiful Blogger Award. You can read more about it on my latest post:

    Have a great weekend!

    PS I loved the pics from the drive-in. Kid Newton once loved the drive-in, but now it just keeps him awake. I sure do miss it though.

  11. Your Amazing! thanks for stopping by my blog. I actually visited your blog today the one from 2010. i wish you the best and will pray for you and your son.

  12. Thanks for visiting Being June and leading me here. I love your writing style.

  13. Thank you for sharing your heart so openly. Reading a spiritually based book, The 12 Steps of Forgiveness (a practical manual for moving from fear to love) by Paul Ferrini was a great help to me. Blessings on your journey, *you can do it*!

  14. Hi, how are you?

    Good news, we are giving you the “BEST MOMENT AWARD“. Congratulations and enjoy the rest of the day!

  15. God forgives everyone. I have had to learn that, after conceiving my son out of wedlock, it has been hard for me to forgive myself for my sins, but I can calm myself down knowing that God has already forgiven me.

  16. Thank you for taking the time to read and like my blog xx

  17. I am sooo glad you found me!! And we mothers, single or married MUST connect and stick together, bc we have so much to share about our lives. To advocate, commiserate, and validate bc no matter which way we go, parenting is tough business. Yet wonderful! I like your about. Your work is honest, and I do believe God sees that. If He is your center, then you always have a light in the dark. Thank you for your work.
