Présentation de l'éditeur

Laurie's message to you...
Even if you think your life is over, it
isn't!
"Where you are" means where you
are NOW and it can change. It
doesn't have to be the end; it can be
the starting point for something new.
Look, it really is okay to struggle
sometimes. It's also okay to allow
other people to help. If you're having
a hard time, that doesn't mean you
have nothing to contribute! Even if
you don't believe it yet, you do have
something valuable and precious to
offer. We can give out of our nothingness
- out of our despair - out of
our loneliness, even if it seems the
whole world is against you...even if it
seems God has forgotten you,
there's hope for you, too.
That dream you have? It can still
come to you, although it may change
form. You don't have to be able to
see the whole way right now. There
are baby steps you can take every
day to bring that dream closer to
reality.
Bottom line - this is a message of
hope and healing for single parents.
If you're struggling and alone right
now, there is hope for you. If your
church or community doesn't understand,
know that there is still a place
for you somewhere. If you know
someone who's scrambling to hold it
all together, there are some
real-world things you can do to help.
Live what you love,
Laurie Hardie

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Aptly Titled 21 février 2014
Par Randall R. Broad - Publié sur Amazon.com

In a word, 'LOVED' this book! Well written, descriptive, informative, and just plain fun to read. Ms. Hardie deftly takes the reader on a journey through pain and love; sometimes at the same time. Being a single parent myself, I could relate to what she shares. But this book is not just for single parents. Its for anyone who has ever dealt with adversity and had to make it to the other side...

Her stories will have you laughing and crying while she provides excellent examples and 'show's' the reader how to move through life's challenges. The book is an outstanding guide to turn off ones negative thoughts and focus your attention on the blessings that surround you. I will pick it up over and over to remind me of life's treasures and regain perspective to get me through any challenge...wonderful!

Full Disclosure: I know Laurie. That's why I bought the book; I knew she had a vivid story to tell. What I didn't know was how glad I'd be that my e-reader lets me highlight passages I want to go back to and ponder. Laurie is a single parent, but her book is really for people like me, dealing with ...well, with life.
There are no platitudes. What I found instead: disbelief, misguided charity, goals delayed, children with competing needs, small triumphs and larger ones, community and re-emergence.

Want advice? Look for the sections called "Just Wondering." The answers are easier to find within yourself when the right questions are asked.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A difficult journey, but a wonderful story 10 mars 2014
Par Jon Badeaux - Publié sur Amazon.com

In the past couple years, friends of mine have written six books. In that situation, I put a lot of weight on my shoulders. While it’s exciting that someone I know is having his work published, I feel pressured into reading and liking it. Luckily, I have really enjoyed each of those six books.

I have another friend I’ve only known for a short period of time. Less than two years. There should be no pressure to hurry up and read her book. And little pressure, if any, to like it. I haven’t known her long enough (or well enough) to feel as if I’m in that position.

Based on the title, this wasn’t something I thought I’d enjoy – the story of a single mother writing for other single mothers. In fact, aside from the word “single,” I can’t relate to the “mother” part at all. I’m not even a parent (though I always wanted to be a dad, but that’s a whole ‘nother story.)

In an email to Laurie, I wrote, “I'm looking forward to reading the book. I get the impression it's more of a book for women, moms, single moms, etc. So I'm probably not your demo.” I lied. I wasn’t looking forward to it. I thought I offered a valid argument that would result in her telling me not to worry about reading it. Instead, she replied, “The book is really about anyone who has had an ‘I did not see that coming’ moment they have had to recover from. I just had to pick a demographic so I chose single parents.” Darn! How was I going to wriggle out of it now?

After stalling as long as possible, I decided to put the file onto my Kindle and get it over with. Suddenly, I was technically challenged and couldn’t figure out what I was doing. I didn’t want to admit to her that I was incapable of putting a file onto an electronic reader. So, in complete embarrassment and frustration, I purchased the book directly from Amazon. I no longer had a reason to delay. With all my preconceived notions intact, I fired up my Kindle and began to read about Laurie’s journey. Imagine my surprise when I found it was almost impossible to put down!

As we’ve already established, and as the title suggests, Laurie Hardie is a single mom. But this isn’t just about finding good daycare and stuffing baloney sandwiches into lunch boxes. With so many stereotypical situations for women (and men) in her situation, she finds a way to run into them all. But, instead of adopting a “Poor Me, Life Sucks” attitude when her life is suddenly turned upside down, Laurie makes the brave decision to stand tall and survive.

It’s an over-simplification to say this is a self-help or how-to guide. It’s more than making lists and posting affirmations on your bathroom mirror and refrigerator door. She takes on each new challenge with her own special weapons of down-to-earth, common sense, and an unshakable faith that she can and will make life safe for her children.

But I’m just scratching the surface. We not only learn how she uses her magical toolbox, we actually get to know her and how her mind works. One subject in particular is one I’ve never seen addressed anywhere. It’s how you feel and how you react when well-meaning friends miss the mark. She doesn’t want to appear to be ungrateful, but certain types of help aren’t really helpful. For instance, when she desperately needs furniture, she doesn’t want someone’s pee-stained sofa. It was something that was headed for the junkyard and is now taking a detour to her living room. How do you deal with something like that?

There is one particular section I would have omitted had I written this book. She is very hard on herself. We’re all affected by what we think of ourselves, and these thoughts tend to mold our thinking as well as fog up the windows in our minds. But, Laurie is incredibly focused, and has a real knack for laying things out as she sees them. She hides from nothing.

The true beauty of Laurie’s book is her story. That's what makes this a joy to read. Remove the self-help label and just focus on the story. You can feel her love through the pain of divorce and doing what’s right for her kids. She got through some really difficult times with her wits, her integrity, a good dose of common sense, and a whole lot of love. In the past couple days, I’ve gotten to know Laurie Hardie. I’m lucky to know her and call her a friend.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a "how-to" but a "can-do" 16 septembre 2014

While the title of this book says that it gives hope to single parents, the reality is that it gives hope to anyone who suddenly finds themselves in a place that isn't even on the radar.
For the author, it was a marriage that ended for a reason that was unexpected. While that is titillating, the real story is one of perseverance and hard work to lay claim to a new life while grieving the one lost unexpected;y.
This applies to those who suffer a traumatic death, job loss, financial setback or other sudden change that is not a positive experience.
This book guides by example, demonstrating that there is a better tomorrow, even if it means a restless night ahead.
This is not so much a "how-to" guide as a "can-do" piece. Everyone is unique as is every situation. There is likely not a step-by-step set of instructions for rebuilding a life. But there is a confidence that can be built to allow that life to be rebuilt. This book does just that.
