“I can’t tell you the last time I’ve felt so appreciated and important … I’m overcome with emotion.” That’s what one of our wonderful single moms said Saturday during our annual Single Mom’s Morning Out. THANK YOU to every single volunteer at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church and Prairie Ridge Church in Ankeny for your hard work, selfless love, and service to make this a day for moms to remember . . . until NEXT year!

Moms enjoyed breakfast, worship, massages, waxing, facials, hair cuts and styling, jewelry making, car wash and detailing, and of course, a trip to the Blessings Boutique–a completely free “shopping experience” of donated items from Life 107.1 listeners. Thank you for making this event such a success!

    This was my second year attending this at Prairie Ridge. God used this event last year to bring me back into church. I was reluctant to go back but I kept finding coupons and papers with “Prairie Ridge” on them for about 3 weeks after SMMO. And my twins kept asking to go back and see the child care lady. So, despite my social anxiety, I took us to church. I didn’t really talk to anyone and I sat in the back near the door so I could bolt if I needed too. Fast forward to just about a year later and every time I walk in the doors of Prairie Ridge I know I’m home. And my social anxiety? God delivered me from it! I’ve made amazing connections and deepened my relationship with God. My recovery is flourishing again; I’m in a 12 step program for addiction. I’ve been clean 5 years as of today (May 6th)! Who would have thought enjoying a day to be pampered would bring so many more blessings?! I didn’t, but God sure did. Single Mom’s Morning Out is so much more than pampering and feeling appreciated; it’s healing, loving, graceful soul food! Praise and Glory to God for the amazing blessings and miracles that come out of this! And blessings to ALL of the volunteers! My heart is overflowing with gratitude!
