Hi! My name is Jennie Askins. When I first became a single mom, I felt a desperate need to talk to someone who would validate what I was feeling about my experience. I wanted some guidance as I strived to become a confident mother and woman. Over time, I began to realize: I could be the coach that I never had, helping women like me discover their TRUE POWER. In May 2018, my passion for single moms and their struggles led me to create Single Mom Life, a monthly empowerment group for women to connect with each other, find inspiration, and share resources. I also created an online community where women can connect, share resources and inspiration. I have always felt that my strong support system has helped get me through, along with my faith in God, daily journaling, and regular self-care. I wanted to share the strength I’ve found for myself with others. So using my degree in Business, my Certifications in Life Coaching and Creative Writing, and my role as a Certified Meditation Instructor , I knew it was my heart’s mission to help raise up other single moms. Even though it’s not as unusual as it once was to be a single mom, this role can still feel pretty scary, and even overwhelming, for many of us. The phrase ‘single mom’ once held a negative connotation, but I want to show single moms that this phrase can stand for Confidence. For Inner Strength. And for Empowerment.
I want you to realize that this is your time to Build the Life You Want—the life you’ve always dreamed of! Yes, you have your kids to think about. I understand—it’s not just you alone. But don’t use your children as an excuse—instead, use them as a reason for living YOUR BEST LIFE. It’s all a matter of the story you tell yourself. I want to help you revise your story—from defeated to Awakened. I want to help you break free from the chains that have been holding you back. I want to help you wake up to your True Potential as a mother and as a parent. If you’d like to talk to me about your journey, please feel free to reach out! I’d love to hear from you.
