A beautifully designed guided journal specifically for single moms, by critically acclaimed author and single mom Beth Raymer.
There are an estimated 15 million children being raised by a single mother in the U.S. Yet, single mothers are deeply underserved when it comes to celebrating their triumphs and sharing their trials and challenges of being a single parent in today's world.
Acclaimed author, journalist, and single mom Beth Raymer hopes to change that. She brings her signature wit, honesty, and wisdom to this unique resource that gives single mothers the most important tool of all: a voice.
This thoughtful journal encompasses both an inspiring personal reflection on the single-motherhood journey and a practical guide for any single mom-whether by choice, following divorce or widowhood, working, stay at home, or any other personal circumstance-to feel empowered and confident. In addition to featuring inspiring quotes from a wide-range of women, the journal includes prompts that explore the conscience and experience of single moms wherever they are in their journey toward building satisfying and successful lives with their children.
A SPECIAL JOURNAL JUST FOR SINGLE MOMS: This journal is the first of its kind. Single moms now finally have a journal of their own and can create a keepsake to share with their children as they mature. Raymer shares her own journey toward building satisfying and successful lives with their children.
TRUSTED RESOURCE: Beth Raymer is the critically acclaimed author of Lay the Favorite: A Memoir of Gambling which was made into a major motion picture starring Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Joshua Jackson. The book received rave reviews from the New York Times to NPR. She is perfectly poised to share her personal parenting story with a wider audience and shine new light on single motherhood.
DIVERSITY OF EXPERIENCE AND PERSPECTIVE: Single moms come from all walks of life and socioeconomic backgrounds. Raymer invokes the inspiration and life lessons of such renowned artists and writers such as Lucia Berlin, Diane Di Prima, Mia Birdsong, and Gloria Anzaldua.
