Guest Bio

Laura Polk is a writer, speaker, and textile designer residing in North Carolina with her three children. Since becoming a single mom, her passion to minister to this group has led her to encourage successful single mom living through The Christian Single Mom Ministry on Facebook, and her newest book release, The Single Mom Challenge. Follow her journey through her blog or get a glimpse into her quirky thoughts and inspirations for design and writing on Pinterest.

When I became a single mom I was searching everywhere for encouragement or advice on what to do from a Christian point of view. But everything I found was either outdated or really took a pious viewpoint that made me feel infinitely worse. I’d already been a regular parenting blogger at that point and had written for magazines and online resources (like Focus on the Family, Christian Parenting Today, Today’s Christian Woman,, etc.) so I started blogging about my journey in the hopes that other single moms of faith wouldn’t feel so alone. As it turns out, there were a lot of single moms of faith just like me who were looking for someone to come alongside them in their journey. So, I’ve tried to really focus in on what it takes to get through single motherhood successfully as a Christian. How to lean into God and seek healing so that you can move on. And how to handle the really tough (and touchy) issues that no one wants to talk about. I’ve been blogging for the last four years on my blog at and ministering to single moms of faith through The Christian Single Mom on Facebook.

What is your SuperPower?

I want to empower others to stop the comparison trap that keeps us from not only missing out on God’s best for our lives, but from seeing what He is already doing in them.
