You may feel lonely, abandoned, overwhelmed, and ill-equipped in your life as a single mother, but you are not alone on this journey. God is WITH you, and if you are willing, He will help you build a strong home and legacy for your family.

As a former single mother, Michelle Lynn Senters understands you could use a little soul nourishment. In the Unseen Companion, she explores the ten needs every single mother has and asks, "God, where are you in this?"

Avoiding clichés and hurtful platitudes, Michelle offers true hope from God's Word. Her reflections, seasoned with personal experience, will help you:

  • Trust that God sees your needs and can satisfy them
  • Develop a vibrant relationship with God's Word
  • Avoid temptation and counterfeit solutions
  • Strengthen your resolve and confidence to raise children of faith

Read The Unseen Companion and receive the encouragement your heart longs to hear: "You can do this, God is with you, and He will lead your family in strength and love."

Includes questions at the end of each chapter for reflection, journaling, or group discussion.


About the Author

Michelle-Lynn Senters
MICHELLE LYNN SENTERS (B.A. Education; M.Ed. Integrated Teaching Through the Arts) raised two daughters on her own and experienced many issues common to single mothers: financial crisis, emotional trauma in children, pursuit of education, isolation from church, feelings of guilt/shame, consequences of fatherlessness, and the challenges of relationships and remarriage. Her message has been forged in her own journey as a single mom and has deepened through her years of mentoring single moms and launching ministries geared to them in the local church. She founded the Arise Ministry for Single Moms at her local church in Colorado Springs and this ministry is being considered by other area churches. She is a sought-after speaker at women's events, Bible studies, and writer's conferences.


I'm making a long list of single and married women and I will be giving them this book. In a beautiful, tender way, Michelle has brought the heart of all women to the throne room of Truth! Thank you for sharing your heart and leading us through Scripture in such a revealing and hopeful path of courage and hope!

Michelle has walked the journey and understands the hardships that many single mothers face. She now has the passion to use that experience to encourage single mothers to find their hope and strength in Christ. It can be done, and she wants to show you how. Single mom, allow the pages of The Unseen Companion to bless you!

Our journey of ministering to women began thirty-three years ago and during that time we have seen first-hand the pain and suffering that single moms go through with courage and fortitude. The Unseen Companion fills a much needed role for those brave women building a family single-handedly. We encourage the 2,500 pregnancy centers in our nation to make this book a gift they give to all the brave single mothers who choose life for their baby.

In a world of mixed messages that only offer false hope, Michelle Senters empowers single mothers and their children to intentionally rebuild and restore their lives and legacy with this very helpful and much needed book.

Tammy Maltby

Speaker, cohost, and author of The God Who Sees You



This is so much more than another heroic story of overcoming tragedy and difficulty. Michelle elevates God's story above her own. She focuses so clearly how God showed up in every plot twist in her own story. She has written a book that goes beyond hope and inspiration to actually bring the reader closer to God. The reader will find a path to follow to manage emotions, overcome hurt, and allow God to supply all needs. I recommend this book to every woman who wants to recognize the voice and handprint of God in her everyday life.

The Unseen Companion is an encouraging, uplifting, heart-to-heart conversation from one single mother to another. It's a lifeline for those raising children on their own. But, more importantly, Michelle leads the single mom directly to the heart of God, where our true hope is found.

 Sandy Bové

Single mom of two



Michelle articulates the struggles in life, the independence we establish away from God, and she confirms the realization He is available to each of us as we release that independence to a deeper relationship. The book reveals an example of complete reliance and companionship Christ offers us. The Unseen Companion is insightful and rich.

Tracy Hollingsworth

Women's Ministries Coordinator, Woodmen Valley Chapel, Longmont, CO



As a publishing professional, I applaud Michelle Senters for her authentic voice and compelling personal accounts. As a single mom, I felt immense relief—she not only gets us as we are, but her insightful questions nudge us along on our faith journey.

Reestablishing family foundations is so critical in our broken and hurting world. This book offers the "intrinsic connection" to restoration for the single mother (whether she was never married, divorced, or widowed). There is wisdom, true hope, and insightful understanding birthed from Michelle's story and her personal journey in the Word of God. Help and hope are available in The Unseen Companion.
