The life of a single mom is challenging, messy, and sometimes lonely. How can we support and minister to the women in our churches who are carrying the load by themselves?

Carol Lund is the director of Bridging the Gap, a ministry that helps women grow in their faith. She joins Susie to unpack God’s heart for single parents and the children they raise. They touch on the following points:

• The life of a single mother (with input from former Faith Radio host Stephanie Kay)

• How we can pray for and minister to the single parents in our midst

• Stigmas and biases against single parents and how the Church can work to overcome them

• An upcoming retreat for single mothers including worship, studying the Word, prizes, car care, and pampering! You can buy tickets for the May 30-31 event and bless a single mother in your life.
