Life is never easy for a single mom. Same implied for Christy Hicks, a single mom from Loganville. She is a single mother to two daughters, 22 and 4 years old. Like any other single mom, she dedicated her life to meet the needs of her kids. Going through the adverse circumstances, she struggled hard to survive her family through every pitfall.

Every difficulty that life threw on her way, she and her family learned to make the best of whatever was available. This inspired her to write a book, which she has named “Less Really Can Be A Whole Lot More”
Often times in order to meet the daily demands, Christy exhausted her savings account. She states “I had to cut back on the cable, phone at home, and even had to make choice to pay my bills.” In order to save on the car insurance, she opted for the basic one. She struggled through difficult times, doing side jobs, to bring food on the plate for her children and worked hard to save the money that she could.
It was her courage and positive attitude that made her efforts fruitful. She lately opened up an insurance company in Loganville.
