Wingspan features heart-warming stories of inspiration and hope from 45 single parents and is a must-read for everyone who ever has been or will be involved in the raising of children. You don't have to be single or a parent to be inspired by the depth and width of these parents' love for their sons and daughters.
Praise from Donald Miller, Governor Mary Fallin and Brian McLaren:
"What single parents really need, beyond formulas, are stories of hope, challenge and triumph. Single parents will find a thousand tips in this book, but more importantly, they'll find friends who have walked the road before them and made it through with a story to share. Single parents don't have to feel alone, and this book is proof."
-- Donald Miller, NYT best-selling author of Blue Like Jazz and other titles, creator of Storyline conferences, and founder of The Mentoring Project
"Wingspan tells the true stories of single parents who are rising above the challenges that life has thrown at them. It offers much-needed encouragement, inspiration, and reminds all those who struggle that they can turn their tragedy into triumph."
-- Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin
"We're all attracted to inspiring stories in which people face huge hardships and come through triumphant. But we're also depressed by those stories, because real life is always way more complicated. Wingspan is such a gift because it tells inspiring stories but doesn't sand off the rough edges. I know it will become a companion to pull people through tough times - as single parents and as human beings."
