My name is Joanie Winberg and I have been a single mom for 14 years. At the time of my divorce my children were 12 and 9. At the ages of 28 and 25, they are happy and well adjusted adults.That is a huge concern for single moms because of the emotional roller coaster ride of divorce.
It has not been an easy journey and at times the "once shared to-do lost" seemed overwhelming.
That is why I have dedicated my life to support single moms as much as I possibly can.… Continue

This is my take on Monday night's announcement on Jon & Kate Plus Eight, from my blog, Mom Spark...
Again, why do I care? I just finished watching the episode and it resulted in the obvious divorce prediction from most of the media, and you, who left comments. I cannot say that I was surprised, but yet, I sorta was at the same time. I was mostly taken aback at Jon's demeanor…
Everybody knows people change. People change when they age, when they meet new people, when they experience new things. We change the most in our 20s. Remember when you were 21, 25 and 29? Wasn’t there a huge difference in how you perceived yourself and the world around you, wasn’t there a difference in where you worked, who you were friends with and what your priorities in life were? Now think of your 30s, 40s, 50s. You will be a different person shaped by your life experiences. Maybe your… Continue

Should we stay in an unhappy marriage for the kids? That is the question a lot of parents are struggling with and making a choice to sacrifice their own life and happiness for the sake of not traumatizing their children. But is it always the right choice? Is it always true that all kids are better off if their moms and dads stay unhappily together?
I did not grow up in a divorced family. My parents have been married for 38 years. They claim they have been happily married and love… Continue
I have been undecided for a while about whether or not to discuss the whole drama with Jon & Kate Plus 8. Part of this hesitation was due to feeling a little silly for caring so much, but after seeing hundreds of tweets on Twitter regarding this issue, I no longer felt silly. If you do not care about this subject, please skip on by to another… Continue

I always knew God had a purpose for my life, but when I got pregnant out-of-wedlock with my first child, I thought I'd negated His ability to use me. I was disappointed in myself and even more disappointed that I'd failed to live up to others' expectations of me. Feeling tainted and inadequate, I ran to marriage as a means of redemption and getting back into everyone's good graces.
I spent many years hiding behind my marriage and kids, struggling to maintain a good-girl image. But,… Continue
Is it just me or was 2008 the year of the wife? The heat is off the desperate housewives and all eyes are on that thing that you thought had gone west with our mothers’ generation: the art of being a good wife.
In the space of a few months, the spotlight has shifted from women as mothers, women juggling careers and families, and women who drink too much, to women in their role as wives. This is about a new interest in how… Continue
Everyone has a story. How many people take the time to write it down? For the sake of all my busy readers, this is a condensed version of my life, but we're talking 39 years here, so get your cup of coffee.
It all started "back in the summer of '69." That's when I was born. Into a semi-dysfunctional household. It wasn't all bad, but my parents divorced when I was a teenager. Although my immediate family had some issues, I had 2 wonderful sets of Grandparents. I always had a… Continue

She spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes, crates and suitcases. On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things. On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table by candle-light, put on some soft background music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of spring-water.
When she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar… Continue
