Misty Phillip sits down with Robert Benson for a helpful conversation for solo parents on this week’s episode of the By His Grace podcast. Robert shares his personal story of becoming a solo parent looking for guidance. When his wife of 13 years separated from him, he was left to raise his three young daughters on his own. This experience led him to found Solo Parent Society to unify, equip and empower single parents.

Robert co-hosts a Solo Parent Society weekly podcast and has authored a book titled Going Solo: Hope and Healing for the Single Mom or Dad. Robert is also the founder and director of iShine, a Christian media group dedicated to ministering to pre-teens and their families. He is remarried and resides in Tennessee with his daughters and three new stepsons.
As parents face the complicated reality of a broken home, a sense of being completely overwhelmed can shut down the perspective they need to find restoration. Parents need to know that they can choose to define this season of their lives instead of becoming defined by circumstances. They can deliberately look toward God and come to a deeper understanding of His true nature, power, and personal care.
Robert offers readers some hard-learned lessons and insights on being a practical, empathetic, and empowered single parent, answering crucial questions such as:
- How do I find peace when everything around me is chaos?
- How do I manage meeting needs when I have nothing to give?
- How and where do I begin again?
He addresses the fears and exhaustion of single parenting while revealing the keys to gaining strength and courage for each day. He also shares how he found his “solo” relationship with his heavenly Father through his “solo” parenting season. Readers will learn five helpful habits and practical healing principles they can immediately apply in this season of life.
