Be a TESTimony

We survive our troubles to provide for those in need; therefore, single parents are encouraged to build meaningful and positive relationships with people other than their children. These friendships serve as a foundation to build the support system needed in a one parent home. This is by design and not open for discussion or debate. It is a master plan to aid in village growth. The same village that helps protect their children.

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.” (Psalms 46 1-3 NIV).

Difficult times breed life lessons which result in personal elevation. Once the difficult time, known as a TEST, has passed it becomes a TESTimony. It is our responsibility to share this testimony with someone in need.

Keep giving! Keep living! Keep thriving!

What is your TEST? Share your TESTimony in the comments section and be a blessing to other single parents.

I look forward to reading your comments.

  1. One of my favorite sayings, along with “our mess becomes our message”. It’s such a great reminder when we are in the valley that someday we will stand on the mountain again and be able to use our experiences to help others out of the valley. Great message!
