Single christian mothers dating
"I was overwhelmed because of the chain of decisions I had made to get me to this point." With her counselor's assistance, Smith figured out how to talk to her family about the pregnancy.
To her surprise, instead of rejection they offered support.
Yet, polls also show they are one of the least likely groups to attend church. Money saving worries have led some single parents to work several jobs in order to make ends meet, and they simply do not have the time. When the Scriptures states that believers should care for the poor, the widows and the defenseless, Christian single parents are not too far removed.
Many others, however, feel excluded or stigmatized by the church, and so stay at home. Churches and single parent ministries have a great opportunity to show the love of Jesus in this area.

Oftentimes, when we actually get to know a person we find out they are quite different from the characterization we have placed on them. To seek out another single parent believing that person would better understand your situation or have the “qualifications” of being a parent may be true, but it may not be for that person you meet. In the same way, to write off all singles without children because they can’t know what it’s like to raise a child alone may be a correct assumption; however, that person may have grown up in a single parent family and knows it from another side.
I would encourage you (and all singles) to be open-minded about whom you meet, and allow God to make the determination of what is “best” in your case. Determining when to introduce your prospective mate to your children is a very important decision to make as a single parent.
