Single Moms Ministry

Does God really care about single moms?

Abiding Hope Ministries
nurtures single moms in the Body of Christ
to discover and experience God’s faithfulness

We reach out to single moms in two ways:

1. Building Relationships with Single Moms

We focus on the spiritual and emotional well-being of single moms. In groups, classes and one-on-one, we create an atmosphere where single moms feel loved, accepted, and welcomed. We invite them to openly discuss their challenges, questions, doubts, fears, and faith. We help them see God in their situations.

Our goal is to walk with single moms and help them learn to know God more intimately and fully depend on Him.

2. Equipping Local Churches to Reach out to Single Moms with God’s Love

We work together with people who are passionate about the spiritual and emotional needs of single moms. We pray with, assist, equip and encourage them in developing their unique ministry to single moms through their local churches.

Our vision is to help people establish nurturing groups for single moms in every city.


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 us?”

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
