“If your husband begins to act the way you want only because of your nagging blame, you will find that it doesn’t bring the joy and fulfillment you had hoped for and dreamed of.”

Carla Anne Coroy, Married Mom, Solo Parent, p. 50

Katy at A Few More Pages
This book gave me a lot to think about. I’ve got a lot of sticky notes marking important passages that I plan to go back to on a regular basis. I am really glad I read this book. It has helped me to look at my husband from a new perspective and has forced me to think about making my actions and my attitudes good examples for my kids. I want them to be able to look at our family as something they want to emulate, not reject. The best way for me to do that is to lean on God’s strength, because when I depend too much on my imperfect and weak self, it doesn’t go that well.

I highly recommend this book for any married mom who finds herself struggling to do the solo parenting gig for whatever reason. You’ll find a lot of great support and advice within these pages.

Real Hope and Practical Help

Married Mom, Solo Parent is down-to-earth and easy to read.

Whether you’ve lived as a Married Solo Mom or not, you’ll find encouragement and practical, biblical teaching on marriage, parenting and life.

Widely endorsed and touching a cultural nerve, God is using Married Mom, Solo Parent to minister to women, marriages and families around the world.

“As a solo-parenting mom, you cannot heal the hurt in your children’s hearts. Grieve that fact and then turn your attention to what you can do. You can lead them to places where they might experience hope and healing.”

Carla Anne Coroy, Married Mom, Solo Parent, p. 217

Whatever situation a married solo Mom faces, Mrs. Coroy has words of wisdom for her and something of value to add to her life.

“Just because you are a solo parent does not mean that your children don’t need the stability and security that the family meal provides. Actually, they need it so much more. We’ve all heard statistics about how difficult it is for kids to grow up without the positive and consistent influence of a dad. The family meal will not replace him. It will, however, give them a strong cord of family ties binding them to those who share the table—including their father when he is around. It will give you a doorway into their lives and give them a significant sense of belonging. The family meal can weave you closer to each other than you ever imagined.”

Carla Anne Coroy, Married Mom, Solo Parent, p. 157

“People learn more from our struggles than they do from our strengths. And that’s why this book is an amazingly valuable resource for every mother; it is soul-piercingly vulnerable. I recommend this book to any mom because every mom will find an absolute treasure trove of wisdom and hope inside—practical wisdom and hope that works because it was bought in the fires of real-life stresses and pressures. You will be encouraged and helped if you read this book!”

Book Marks 2013 - Married Mom, Solo Parent - Carla Anne Coroy

“It is difficult for most men to avoid taking offense when their wives suggest getting some kind of help for their marriage. While you may be trying to get closer to him, he will understand instead that you think he is a failure. Most men want a satisfying, happy, vibrant marriage, and so long as the boat isn’t rocking, they believe the voyage is going well. It can be devastating to learn that their wives’ hearts are bleeding with loneliness and hurt.”

Trent Coroy, in Married Mom, Solo Parent, p. 240

Book Marks 2013 - Married Mom, Solo Parent - Carla Anne Coroy

“Jesus is not ‘just’ God. He is not out there somewhere. He is not distant from us. He is the God who walks with us. His presence in our lives is what gives hope, not to escape our circumstances or the effects we’ll sustain from them, but to demonstrate that he is a God of power, love, and redemption. God with us. That is what the angels called him. Emmanuel.”

Hayley at Hanging Off The Wire
This book can be read chapter by chapter, or just read the parts you think pertain to you. I especially like the parts about pride, and anger, and discipline divided.

The book is chock-full of good advice, and I love the “Meet Mom” parts, that share personal stories of real moms in these situations.

This book is worth the read, even if you don’t feel like a solo parent!

Book Marks 2013 - Married Mom, Solo Parent - Carla Anne Coroy

“With obedience, we have to be careful to give age-appropriate assignments in a timely, well-laid-out manner. Asking your five-year-old to clean the house would likely bring about as much success as cleaning windows with butter. Give them the instruction, set the standard, provide a time frame, and motivate them with a reward or consequence.”

“Carla Anne Coroy doesn’t mince words when she talks about how lonely being a married single mom is! But while acknowledging the bitterness, the fear, and the exhaustion, she also plots a road forward toward peace, a healthy family life, and even a thriving marriage. An honest, hopeful look at one of the loneliest jobs around!”

Book Marks 2013 - Married Mom, Solo Parent - Carla Anne Coroy

“There are countless ways that adjusting to life as a family after a husband begins to reengage can be stressful. I recently spoke to someone whose sister-in-law was divorcing her husband. He had worked away from home for five years, a mutual decision they had made to help pay down debt and be able to save for their children’s education. She managed the years apart. It was adjusting to life as a family afterward that was just too hard.”

Julie Arduini at The Surrendered Scribe
She took what was her life—a busy, sometimes frustrating, and always challenging way of living and made it a ministry. Now she’s releasing a book that is the first of its kind, at least the first I’ve ever seen.

Married mom, single parent. Yes. Carla explains in her book Married Mom, Solo Parent that this is a real demographic that needs its own encouragement and resources.

Whether your husband is serving in the military, travels a lot for work, has a crazy work schedule that keeps him preoccupied, or even home but obsessed with things like computer games, you remain at home, still married, but stepping up to take care of all parenting and household matters. The books out there for single parents are usually about divorce and that’s not Carla’s situation or mine. Her book is a breath of fresh air for moms in this special niche that so many didn’t see coming when they first married.

Book Marks 2013 - Married Mom, Solo Parent - Carla Anne Coroy

“Husbands do not instinctively understand the nature and needs of their wives, nor do they easily comprehend when their wives try to tell them this. Add in a lack of good, observable role models and the bombardment of confusing and destructive messages in our culture and media, and what do you get? Whole generations of men who don’t know what to do for their wives and families or how to engage with them. And they don’t even know that they don’t know.”

Trent Coroy, in Married Mom, Solo Parent, p. 238

Kendra at Happily Managing a Household of Boys
I really enjoyed this book! Carla Anne is a brand new author and she really “hit a home run” with this book. I have never seen a book based on this topic and this book really opened my eyes to what some Moms have to struggle with to keep their family “going”.

I was really amazed at how many different reasons a dad can be an “absentee husband”. I think the most common ones many think about are a husband who travels a lot or one works long hours.

I really like the practical, biblical and wise advice that Carla Anne gives to the Moms struggling with the fact that their husband is “there but not” or away for long periods of time. The book has many, many suggestions and practical advice for dealing with an “absentee husband”. A really great part of the book is where the author talks about honoring the husband even through our own anger and frustration.
