Single Moms Survive & Thrive

The journey after divorce or separation is a rough road for anyone, but when children are involved it’s so much harder. In this podcast Jeanette & her single mama friends will discuss various stages of the post divorce/separation journey and coping methods that have helped them survive and thrive! Over the last 6 years since being a single parent, Jeanette has encountered so many seasons, trials and tribulations but has risen victorious and embraced her single mom life! In this podcast Jeanette and guests will come together to discuss all kinds of topics - focusing on the support fellow single moms can give each other through these stages, loving each other through the good times and the bad. Get ready to laugh a little and cry a little, but most of all get ready to feel the love and support from them because you are not alone!! Because when single Moms come together we SURVIVE and THRIVE! Did anyone give you a guidebook on this when you became a single parent?! I know I didn’t get one! But I do know that single parents that have been through it ahead of me were my best support structure. Once I knew I wasn’t alone I felt so comforted and found the healing process a lot easier. My hope is that you will learn to embrace and love your single Mom life and from listening to this podcast you will know you are empowered to be the best Mom you can be, whatever your situation because we SURVIVE AND THRIVE!

    11:46

    My hope is that from this podcast, you will learn to embrace and love your single Mom life and feel empowered to be the best Mom you can be, whatever your situation because we SURVIVE AND THRIVE!In this episode I will be introducing myself to you in a little more detail. You will hear my personal story, my journey, and how it has brought me here to doing this podcast. And don’t worry, this is an ex bash-free zone ya’ll! The purpose of this podcast is to bring single Moms together and share our lives, stories, challenges, funny stories and most of all things we have learned that help us survive and thrive. This is not a place in which we will play the victim or blame others for where we are today. The fact of the matter is single parents are single parents for whatever reason they have. We will discuss these life journeys at times but the main purpose is to live in the present in this podcast. We will look back at the past, we will talk about things that have impacted us, but we are here to talk about the things we have learned since being a single parent.
