A note to Single and Divorced Parents:

We know that many parents have less than ideal circumstances when it comes to their marriage. Divorce and single parenting are a reality that many of you  are facing, and seeing information like the statistics above might make you feel like you’ve already failed. Please know that we love you, God loves you, and God loves your kids.

God’s grace overcomes statistics everyday. We can’t change our pasts, but grace can start to redefine our present and our future. It’s never too early, and its never to late to grab hold of God’s grace for yourself and for your family.
