"Still Going It Alone" addresses issues common to women who have been at the task of single parenting for some seasons. These unique women now face the prospect of sending their children off to college, to a distant career site, or to be married and must continue to fulfill their ever-altering parental role. Moms with grown children also realize the need for wise financial planning and career re-assessment. Each single mom understands they may never re-marry, that growing old and retiring alone is a very real possibility. For many, the future looms in uncertainty. This resource book will provide practical hope and continually redirect women to the source of all comfort, God and His word.

"As kids grow up a mom's role shifts and changes, and it's not always easy to adjust. In her new book, "Still Going It Alone," Michele Howe offers practical and positive principles for single moms who are entering those empty nest years and beyond. From preparing your kids for their careers to imparting goal-setting directives to helping them make wise choices in relationships, Michele's book covers every aspect of encouraging grown children to succeed in life. Most importantly she points moms to the Lord as their true source of peace and strength. Each chapter is filled with personal stories and practical applications to benefit every mom. I highly recommend this book as a guidebook for all single moms with grown kids."--Karol Ladd, author of "The Power of a Positive Mom "
