Raising Sons of Promise: A Guide for Single Mothers of Boys

Millions of single mothers find themselves in the difficult position of raising boys alone. Many of those boys are at risk of falling behind in school or repeating the patterns of their own absent or neglectful fathers. 

;Single mothers are critical to reversing this troubling trend. You might be wounded by the broken promises of your child's father. Roland, himself the child of a single mother, invites single moms on a journey not only to heal their hearts but also to parent their boys to become healthy men, good husbands, and strong fathers.  

Drawing from the Genesis story of Hagar and Ishmael, Roland shares insights and stories of how mothers can find healing and hope for their sons to become better men of character and action. He offers guidance and wisdom to moms who want to raise sons who will make and keep their commitments.
