The Soul of a Single Parent: How to Snapback and Get Your SWAG On (book available on Amazon)
A candid, up-close-and-personal perspective of my journey as a single parent. It is written from a single mom’s perspective. Feel free to laugh (with me, not at me) as you read through the pages. Go ahead, sit down and shed a tear of joy (or pain) with me as I share my world with you. More importantly, I pray that you gain further insight and purpose as to your divine role as a single parent. Each chapter starts with my perspective or a short snippet of “coming from where I’m from” then digs deeper to further share “my truth or turning point” of my single parent journey. Are you ready to snapback from single parent paralysis? Is it time to get your SWAG on? If so, then let’s begin!
