I applaud mothers everywhere who sacrifice for the wellbeing of their children and especially those raising kids on their own. You or someone you know is a single mom. Struggling with the loneliness of being on your own, every decision is yours and yours alone, every crisis falls on your lap. There’s no one else to help with the teething and terrible twos, sibling fights and night terrors.
Kim Vestal understands the urgent need single mothers have to build friendships and be part of a community. Raising six children on her own, Kim’s passion is to help other single mothers break out of their isolation and find love and support. Four years ago Kim started Extending Grace, “No Single Mom Walks Alone”, a ministry that brings single mothers together to share with each other, provide emotional support and develop friendships. The mothers can also find practical help such as parenting strategies, financial, cooking and nutritional education. Most of all, the mothers are able to encourage one another.
If this speaks to you, or that someone you may know, there is a city wide gathering August 26 th at Central Bible Church, 8815 NE Glisan St, Portland from 6-8pm. Come and be encouraged and embraced, dinner for you and your kids, and free childcare provided for kids 1-12. For more information please contact Kim at 971.998.3824 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are no longer alone!
