the power of God in us

Raise up!


As a single mom, you may feel the odds are against you. However, with the help of God, you can raise up! 

I have been a single mother for 11 years. And I've been taking care of my kids BY MYSELF without any support from their father, no maintenance, no phone calls on their birthdays or Christmas Ė nothing. For 11 years Iíve been the mommy and the daddy, I started working at 3am in the morning to provide for my kids going to bed after 11 at night crying.
I didn't see much of my kids, one night I could not sleep, thinking of how many mommy's go through what I go through, we live for our kids, we will walk through rivers and climb mountains for them, we don't have the money to look good do a makeover, go to gym, get a new hairstyle or some beauty treatments or a sexy photo shoot or pics with you and your kids  - It is just not possible . . .well Mommy, today is your day!
Iíve said enough is enough -  what about our single Moms Ė is there no-one that could  help us to look good, to get advise, to feel worthy again?
After buckets of tears and more prayers, Iíve decided to stand up for single mommy's around the world and Iíll give you more than my best that I promise you.

I used to think I was alone in my endeavour to raise my kids without a husband, but I have learned there are many other women who are trusting God to be a "Father to the fatherless" (Ps. 68:5). 

There are a myriad of reasons why a growing number of women find themselves the head of a single-parent home. Some have endured the pain of divorce, the death of a spouse or a pregnancy outside of wedlock. Others are still married but separated from their mates. Whatever the reason, one thing is certain: God's faithfulness to single moms can be seen in Scripture and is evident in the lives of mothers and their children today.

I pray this year, that He would help you feel lighter and so lavishly loved.

I pray that no matter how difficult your circumstances may be right now, He would remind you that He does not make mistakes. You are exactly where you are supposed to be in Godís economy. So are your children.

I pray you get some rest, somehow.

I pray you get a sweet handmade card or craft from school.

I pray the people who love you shower you with attention and help around the house.

I pray your children give you an extra hug, sweet snuggles, and plenty of smiles.

Moreover, even if none of this happens, I pray that deep down, you would hear me, would believe me when I say:

You are a mother. You are so very special and important and powerful.

There is no one like you in your childís life. You can do this and, by the grace of God, you will do this.
