My name is Arilia Winn and I am a Christian Single Mama to a beautiful girl named Gia. She and I are on this journey together and while things get tough every now and then, I would not take back any of it!
Story is: I got pregnant my last year of undergrad and knew that I would be doing this “parenting” thing alone. I was immediately face with guilt, shame, regret, and all sorts of negative feelings from within and from those around me. However I pushed through and am pushing through. Some days are harder than others, but because of the love of God I am able to make it through.
My journey begun in Daytona Beach, Fl and now I live in West Texas and I am going to school to get my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I blog, I write, I create and I advocate. During the day, I work at a shelter for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. As a survivor of domestic violence, it is my civic duty to be a hand up for the women who are like I was years some time ago.
In that same way I believe that I have been called to work with single mothers, especially Christian single mothers. Although I am still single, I believe that as I minister to you I will minister to myself therefore lifting us both up with the help of the Lord.
To the Christian Single Mama reading this,
Know that YOU are not alone! Know that God is right there with you. He sees you, he hears you, and you are where you are supposed to be at this moment in time! I’m here to minister to you as I minister to myself. Let’s grow together! Let’s learn together! And let’s watch God move in our lives! To God be the glory! Amen!
