The Lord Is My Shepherd, I Shall Not Be In Want...
Nearly half of all homes in the United States are single-parent families. Whether through death, divorce, or life choices, each situation has its own struggle. The Twenty-Third Psalm for the Single Parent

The Scriptures, accompanying quotations, and classic hymns show a relationship with the Shepherd can meet the needs of the single parent for care, provision, rest, peace, hope, direction, patience, courage, friendship, comfort, protection, healing, blessings, love, and joy.
