Yes. It does. Your story matters. My story matter.
Whether or not you become a guest on Solomoms! Talk podcast, your story will matter to someone whose life you touch. You owe it to yourself to answer your calling.
Those who tell their story rule the world.Native American Proverb
I received this email from one of my guests…
“Hi. I hope you are doing well. I just heard the interview on SoloMom . You did a fantastic job,. I love the interview and even more I love the nuggets on the end about regrets and condemnation. That was a whole sermon for me and I’m sure others can benefit from that on time word. Thank you again for the experience. Keep allowing God to use you for Kingdom advancement!!” Sharee Brown, SoloMoms Talk Podcast guest.
I’m new to podcasting. As a solo mom, it was not easy to put myself out there. I’ve struggled with the idea of creating a platform where other solo moms could tell their story. The idea has been circulating in my heart since 2014. I figured I can’t be alone in my experiences. There had to be other solo moms struggling with not only the practical aspects of raising kids alone but also with the emotional and spiritual aspects as well. But I didn’t think my story mattered.
Was I the only one feeling abandoned and alone? Did other solo moms feel like ending their life because they were afraid of wrecking their kids life?
Through a discovery group at my church, I realized that God saw me as someone very special. Despite the fact that I had messed up, I learned to see myself as God saw me. I accepted His forgiveness, knowing He didn’t condemn me. And that he didn’t want me to condemn myself. Once I accepted myself, I realized that the gift of raising my sons was an enormous responsibility and too important to do by myself. So I partnered with my Heavenly Father. Because I finally knew I wasn’t alone.
Hear me solo moms, you are not alone!! No matter how you got here —because of divorce, abandonment or choice—you are not alone.

“They will not labor in vain neither will they bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the Lord, they and their descendants with them.” (Isaiah 65:23, NIV).
This is the final episode of Season 1. Next Tuesday, we begin Season 2 with what I anticipate to be more interesting stories from solo moms. I will also be adding guests who are expert and who will answer questions about issues that may affect you. Stay tuned.
I really appreciate the love and support of SoloMoms! Talk listeners. Thanks for subscribing and for leaving your review. Last but not least, I want to send a special thanks to Alicia Hill, Sonia Manborde, Shara Jones, Lydia Cicarelli and Sharee Brown who gave their time and allowed me to pry a little into their lives while they told their stories. God bless you ladies. You truly rock!!
