Why Abiding Hope Ministries Cares about Single Moms
A major crisis propelled Linda Joyce Heaner and her three young
children into a life they hadn’t planned on. “I questioned everything I
believed,” Linda said. “Why is this happening? Why isn’t God helping
God’s answer surprised her: “Linda, don’t look at your circumstances or
at the people around you. Look at Me. I am your Abiding Hope.” That
moment marked a turning point in Linda’s life. She began to recognize
God’s loving care for her family. Her fears decreased as she discovered
the depths of God’s faithfulness.
God gave Linda a deep compassion for other single moms. “Where
can they go with their questions and fears? Who can they talk to?” She
began reaching out to them. Her life experience and sensitivity opened
up many conversations about God in the midst of their struggles.
As the director of Abiding Hope Ministries, Linda passionately invites
and equips single moms to firmly anchor their lives in Jesus. “So many
single moms need spiritual support and guidance. When their lives are
shaken, only Jesus can provide the deep security they need.”
“Life is unpredictable,” Linda says. “In every situation, we can cling to Jesus. He alone is our Abiding Hope.”
“Single moms really need to hear from a mature Christian who has been there. That's Linda!” —Lois
“Linda Heaner was the featured speaker at our all-day Deacon’s
retreat. Her insights on ministering to the needs of single parents were
informative, extremely engaging, and unanimously appreciated.” —Dan
