The Women's Place is a faith-based business providing spiritual guidance for coping with life's issues. Our belief is that women/mothers are capable of addressing and fixing a multitude of problems with basic needed skill sets. In reality most families consist of a one-parent home and the family is too burdened to function adequately. The Women's Place goal, is not to promote single parent families, but to empower broken families with the knowledge and skills to live better and fuller lives.

In most areas of our life, we wouldn’t dream of just throwing ourselves into something with no advance preparation and seeing what happens. We’d ask for advice, learn and discover strategies to perform better, and practice, practice, practice.Yet for some reason, we feel hesitant to take the same approach to parenting. There’s a perception that mothers and fathers should just know what to do naturally—that everything will fall into place if we just love our children enough. The catch? It’s not always so intuitive which decisions are the right ones.
