118 Reflections on Raising Little Kids without a Father Help! I'm Raising Fatherless Kids

    • Parenting

25 years have passed since I started the journey of raising fatherless kids. Remembering is important to God, and He instructs us in His word to take time to reflect on His goodness.

Lori has divided these reflections into five episodes, highlighting God’s faithfulness in each one.

In this episode reflecting on the first five years of raising small children without a dad, Lori covers the following aspects:


The necessity of a Support system 


The importance of perspective and God’s word


Practical ways God brought blessings in a dark time


Scriptures to bring encouragement



7 Scriptures on Remembering:


“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits” (Psalm 103:2 ESV).


“I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands” (Psalm 143:5 ESV).


“Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered” (Psalm 105:5 ESV).


“He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and merciful” (Psalm 114:4 ESV).


“And you shall remember the whole way that the Lord your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness that he might humble you, testing you to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments or not” (Deuteronomy 8:2 ESV).


“One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts” (Psalm 145:4 ESV).


“Tell [recount, declare, talk, take account of]  your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children to another generation” (Joel 1:3 ESV).
