What is God’s Assignment for your life?

Featured Single Parent: Narria Rice

Narria Rice

I’m  28 years old, unemployed and more importantly a a single parent of one. For those of you who are interested in my assignment, it to help others through compassion. Therefore, I have decided to go back to school and become certified in Human Service Technology, with a specializing in Teen Pregnancies. You ask why teen Pregnancies, well for those of you who don’t know me, I was once a teenage mother. I had my lovely child at the age of seventeen. Did, I go through the struggles of being a young mother? If  I’m honest with myself, I have to say no, merely because I had SUPPORT, from every angle possible, through family and friends.

When I asked myself the question, What is God’s assignment for my life, I realized that the path I’ve created thus far, has not been apart of my assignment. But that’s ok. Why, because the valuable lesson that I learned,  is that  IT’S NEVER TO LATE.  It’s ok to say I’ve made a mistake and correct it.

As a single parent myself, I feel that it is important for all of us to collectively work together and continue to be the back bones for one another.

And as for dealing with being a single parent, one of the many pieces of advice that I always reiterate to my  son, is that it’s  better to have one parent that loves you and wants to be there for you through thick and thin, than not having a parent at all.  Like some children unfortunately, have to bare.

“Count your blessing, not your worries.” Psalm 34
