Cut down on Clothes Buying Time, When Shopping with Kids

   As mothers in singlemomdom, we do not live close enough to other moms like us who need help and can help us too. We may also live too far for our families and friends to help, It is sad.

#Modesty – For Girls and Women

As women and girls, we need to dress in such a way that we don’t use the power we have from God to ruin our own lives.
