Background from an article by Michael P. Donnelly of HSLDA :  

Skeet Savage, publisher of Home School Digest, dealt with these challenges after extracting herself from an abusive marriage and deciding to continue homeschooling her six children. She knew that in her own strength, she simply could not do it all:
Being a mom is challenging enough, so rather than trying to fill the place of a dad as well, I leaned on and looked to the LORD as our protector, provider, comforter, and guide—and taught my children through word and example to do the same. In this way, we each came to know and trust Him in reality, to personally witness the truth of His Word, and to look past human failure and find unfailing faithfulness. We didn’t just know about Him, we knew Him intimately.
He wasn’t just a “devotion” or a course we studied, He was our God—our Father, the Head of our household, the final Authority in every decision we faced, the source of our provisions. So, in a very real way, by giving Jesus His rightful place among us, we always had a father in our home—one Who kept His promise to never leave us or forsake us; the Healer of our broken home and hearts.
Her now adult son Israel Wayne, marketing director for Wisdom’s Gate Publishing and a frequent speaker at homeschool conferences, remembers his mom’s dedication and total reliance on Christ: “Ultimately, the effectiveness of a single parent is not predicated on her own ability, but rather on her complete reliance on God. The thing that I remember most about my mother was her willingness to trust God and do whatever the Lord led her to do. That instilled in us, as children, a great sense of faith, knowing that God was our Father and our Provider. It is never easy to be a single parent, but God loves to show Himself strong on behalf of those who fully trust Him.”
