Single Moms Are Often Overwhelmed Emotional Despair
Single moms often feel inadequate, judged, and isolated.
Parenting is a tough job in itself and when done alone, it is an enormous 24/7 task.
There is never enough money. Nearly half of single-mom households live below the poverty line.
“So where is God?” “Why has this happened?” Carrying around anger, bitterness, and unforgiveness makes it hard to feel God’s love.

It’s time to stop feeling overwhelmed. Make a change. Allow us to serve you. Take action today!
Let us know you’re coming!
Register yourself and your children so we can prepare for enough food and childcare. Let us know of any food allergies and whether homework help is desired.

Imagine what may happen if you “go it alone”…
Experience more feelings of loneliness and depression

A Brand New You!
Linda Nesmith is a former single mom who felt God’s call to begin a ministry for single moms in the vicinity of her church, South Side Baptist Tabernacle, in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Her own journey drives her compassion for the struggles that single moms experience.
It is a hard job being a single mom, one that is often looked down upon because people judge that the mom has somehow done something wrong. And she may have. But that doesn’t change the enormity of her task of raising her children alone. Linda’s journey may be similar or very different. But the commonality is that all love their children and have found themselves alone. Linda wants to see every single mom feel connected, become a better parent, gain control of their finances, and grow spiritually.
Our leader, Linda Nesmith, is certified through The Life of a Single Mom to teach the curriculum you see in this video. Each of our meetings will provide a short video lesson like this one followed by candid discussions and thought provoking “homework.”
