Happy National Single Parents' Day!

As a child of divorce, I was raised by a single mother. I was blessed that my dad was around as much as possible, but the one who does the daily grind always faces challenging times.

This week's March Madness Mad Diva Giveaway will have up to three winners and is dedicated to you!

Ironically, I saw him in passing traffic as I sped to work just hours before his death and we waved and smiled. He pointed his finger like I was busted for driving too fast and I couldn’t wait …

Some of the most confident women I know have allowed divorce to make them doubt their decision-making, doubt they are worthy to be loved and doubt that they can ever be whole again. Having been a DivorcĂ©e Diva for a few years now, I often forget just how much you go through before you reach that point of becoming victorious over such notions. Some women have yet to get there at all and often ask me how it is possible that when asked if I would do it again, I come with an unequivocal and anticipatory answer of yes! My answer is simply this…if God loves me and I love myself, then my love is complete and it should be easy for me to share that love with the man who God has for me.
