If you’re anything like me, you always have questions. Upon reading the title of this book, your first thought might be: “I’m not a single mother. Why should I read this?” I’ll stop you right here: this book is definitely worth reading.

The book reads as a guide for what to expect before, during and after motherhood…. all with a touch of humour! A Single Mother and the Dating Game includes useful tips for budgeting, time management, building a home and factoring your children into daily decisions.
It is particularly refreshing to hear an honest, uncensored account of life before salvation from a God-fearing woman who wholeheartedly embraces her sensuality, beauty and inner strength.
