Free Financial Resources for Women (that single moms especially will love!)
I rarely meet single moms that don’t need any financial help and it is because of this that Single Mom Spot ™ has compiled a few resources that we think can benefit your financial life as you strive to provide for your kids.
Most of these free financial resources can be downloaded and reviewed but some are provided through companies that host regular informational events free of charge.
Did You Know? Many Single Moms Don’t Receive Financial Support
It seems shocking that a father wouldn’t want to support their child but it IS NOT UNCOMMON.
In most circumstances, single moms have been led to believe that they will receive consistent financial support from the other parent (if the parent is involved) and this simply is not the case.
If you are a single mom that does receive consistent financial support from the other parent that is WONDERFUL and I am so grateful that you are receiving much needed assistance.
Can a Single Mom Be Successful?
Of course, but, it might take extra effort and patience. The key is patience. Single mamas face shortages of both time and money and because TIME & MONEY impact your finances this is especially difficult terrain to navigate. As you work toward a more stable financial future just remember that it is PERFECTLY OK (and perhaps even better) to build slowly but surely.
Another important thing to remember is that sometimes a circumstance that can be perceived as a weakness can become a source of strength. Single Mom Spot is a real life example of this! I was terrified when I found out that I was pregnant and grappled with my new reality: single motherhood.
As my two kids have grown, I truly realized that being a single mom is a core part of my strength; it’s a circumstance that truly helped me develop a deeper walk with God and has shaped me into the woman that I am today.
