Friend Of The Week – Gina
This week, I’d like to introduce you to Gina – a single mom of five who’s blog,
One Mom’s Guide, focuses on helping overwhelmed single moms identify what’s important so that they can focus on what matters most in life.
Gina is an amazing role model whose story many women need to hear.
Gina has been a mom for 17 years and a single parent for 10 years. When she learned that her husband was a child abuser, she took the necessary but difficult steps and often terrifying steps to protect her children from abuse.
She endured “embarrassing court hearings, Child Protective Services, weeks at a shelter for women, and tremendous family discord” along the way, but now, her family sleeps peacefully at night, knowing that he is serving a 40-year prison sentence.
Life isn’t always easy when you’re raising five children on your own – but a visit to Gina’s blog will show that she’s a fabulous mom and that under Gina’s watchful eye, her family is flourishing!
This week, Gina shared with us her thoughts on How To Make Every Moment Count. It’s part of her larger series, Making Room For What Matters Most – great reading material as we prepare for a new year!
Be sure to take a moment to visit Gina this week at One Mom’s Guide and congratulate her on being our Friend Of The Week at Create With Joy!
Now It’s Your Turn To Share!
Did you enjoy meeting Gina and visiting her blog? Would you like the opportunity to be highlighted in an upcoming Friend Of The Week or In The Spotlight feature?
We’d love to get to know you better! Be sure to leave a meaningful comment – link to us – and spread the love by sharing our Friendship Friday party with all of your friends!
