Balancing the Empty Checkbook

Balancing the Empty Checkbook

How can single parents survive financial challenges and grow stronger in the process?
Single Session Bible Study

Overview

After the divorce is final, the casket is in the ground, or the right person was never there to begin with, we come face to face with reality. Only one income will be adding to the deposit side of the checkbook, yet the same number of mouths will need to be fed. School fees must be paid. The mortgage is still due on the first of the month, and the gas bill continues to climb.

As single parents, how can we deal with the financial crises we face day after day? Can we sustain our faith and teach our children about God when so much of our energy is required just to survive? How do we know when to trust God and when to ask someone for help? We'll tackle these questions in this study.
