SoloMoms! Talk

SoloMoms! Talk

Welcome to SoloMoms! Talk podcast where solo (divorced, single, married, widowed) moms share their stories and gain a whole new perspective on their own lives. Host, J. Rosemarie welcomes dynamic guests who share their personal stories as well as offer helpful tips and strategies to solo moms globally, so they can live more joy-filled lives. This show brings awareness to the unique experiences of moms raising their kids alone. Because a solo mom is not always "single". She may be widowed like Shaniqua Garvin:; or divorced like Nicole Lonzano: or still married like Allison Banfield: Solo moms make up a whole spectrum of families headed by a woman bearing sole responsibility for raising her children. ___________________________________________________________ The podcast is designed to curate not only the struggles but also the triumphs of solo moms around the world. Expert interviews help to equip solo moms to become a better version of themselves, better parent/co-parent, and partner. _________________________________________________________ I want solo moms to know that they are not alone and they don't have to parent in silence. Mission of SoloMoms! Talk Podcast is to: 1) bring awareness to the struggles of solo moms; 2) shine a light on the positive impact they make on their families and communities; 3) reduce the number of solo moms globally, through education, connection, and self-education; and 4) to help them see themselves as God sees them. _________________________________________________________ Website: This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Podcorn -
