Love guides the single parent

After the girls finished breakfast and went to their room to play, I began to pace the floor again. "What am I supposed to do? Go on welfare as family and friends think I should, or take a fulltime position? Could I earn enough to make the mortgage payments and still meet all the other financial demands of a family? How can I know which is the right decision? And, most important of all, who will take care of the girls if I do go to work?"

I was suddenly facing the future as a single parent of two small children, and I was terrified. But that morning I remembered how helpful the Bible had been to me since I began reading it seven years previously. As a fairly new student of Christian Science, I had been daily studying the Bible Lessons given in the Christian Science Quarterly. The Bible had already become instrumental in guiding my life.
