Pastor Marvin Winans (of the famous Winans Family) is the head of Perfecting Church in Detroit, Michigan.

Charity Grace is a single mom living in Detroit and attends Perfecting Church. Her son Joshua, is two-years-old.

She wants to have Joshua blessed in the church so that she can instill values and morals in him based on God’s word. And Pastor Winans – who also eulogized Whitney Houston – has refused to allow Joshua to participate in the special blessing.

His policy is that he does not bless children of unwed mothers in front of his congregation.

So should Charity bring Joshua to church one evening alone and have him blessed in a secret office location?

Single motherhood is very common in the United States and frankly, part of the norm. In 2012, out of 12.2 million single-parent families, more than 80% were headed by single mothers – including mine.
