So another holiday season is upon us. Is this your favorite time of year? Are you one of those people who started decorating in October?

Join us on Zoom on December 12th, 5pm, EST for an open and honest discussion. Read More

Restored by Single Parent Director, Holly Crain
Watching my child rapidly go into dehydration was almost more than I could bear. I was so perplexed and shocked because I had never actually seen it manifest. I felt so helpless as I watched him lay lethargic without tears or the sound of crying. There actually came a point that he even refused to take in what he needed most...water. In that moment of crisis, I knew enough to rush him to the ER. Read More
13 Guidelines for Dating Purity by Chuck Lawless
I work with young adults, many who are singles who are dating or considering dating. When they ask my advice about dating and purity, here’s what I tell them:
2 Peter 3:10-11 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives

A Fight You Must Win by Gloria Godson
In the last quarter of 2019, I suffered a crushing disappointment that left me reeling. I lost something I conclusively believed God had given to me. I had received it with great joy and thanksgiving. I thought it was “in the bag”, so I took my eyes off it for about a week to focus on something else. That was all it took for the devil to swoop in to steal. In the blink of an eye, it was gone! I had lost what I truly believed God had provided for me in answer to prayer. Read More

“Jesus was a single adult and so are over 50% of the adults in the U.S. today. This is a population segment that calls for special attention and ministry, but has often gone unnoticed by the church. Kris Swiatocho has dedicated her life to reaching single adults for Christ and building them into multiplying disciples of Christ. She is a great communicator and organizer of singles ministry. I commend her to any church or group who is seeking to reach the many singles in our culture today.”
—Dr. Steve Harris, Strategy Coordinator for the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.
