Great Sermon! Brother Burke, grace and peace to you, your family and the local assembly that you are ministering to! Today, I found myself struggling about my role as a single mother of a 12 year old young man. I have been battling growing weary as each challenge comes. I run from faith to doubt, questions to surrender discontentment to peace that God knows what He is doing, even if I don't. But today, I had lost my footing...I was beyond weary, beyond confused...I found myself lost, not knowing what to do, especially since I have been faithfully praying and seeking God only to find that my son is still rebellious (for now). After praying, I found this message...RARE message might I add, and I began to understand the truth that I am not forgotten and what my son's dealing with is not the end. God used your message to remind me that His great strength is made perfect in our weakness. I was encouraged to say the least and I praise God for your obedience, your honesty and your compassion for those like me and my son. May the Lord bless you beyond measure...Sincerely, A single mom, chosen by the Most High God!

Thank you! Pastor Burke, thank you for tackling this virtually untouched subject. Single parents tend to be treated as ‚Äúnot quite up to par‚ÄĚ at churches and it is disheartening at times. Single parents need support and encouragement in the church and not condemnation or condescension. I look forward to Part 2!
Pastor Travis Burke was saved at the age of 14 and surrendered his life to the Lord at age 16. Soon after, Pastor Burke realized the Lord desired him to attend Fairhaven Baptist College. Upon graduation, Pastor Burke began serving at Cozaddale Baptist Temple as school...
