The Huddle - a ministry to single moms
...encourage one another and build each other up
- 1 Thess 5:11a
What is The Huddle about?
One night, after an all out impossible day, I plopped down on the couch, absolutely exhausted with nothing left to give to the three little ones down the hall expecting dinner, help with homework, love, attention, laughter, bath time and the whole bedtime routine. Through a simple fist bump to my husband, I was able to tap out and he took over to give me some respite. I know and love many single moms, and to those who strive to take this call to motherhood seriously and strive toward doing it well. I have the greatest respect for single moms who have come out of so many horrible situations, struggling to hang on to their kids and give them a better life. But you know, at the end of their exhausting days...there is no one to fist bump to get a night off. When you see one of these women continue on through the fatigue and depression to give their kids meals, love and attention, it's so humbling. The Huddle has FINALLY been born after years of having the desire to meet with single moms and encourage them to press on through the tough times, follow Christ to gain knowledge, guidance, freedom and a more peaceful walk. To see them encourage and advise each other is amazing and to get calls from them asking life questions just blesses my heart. To love them and be loved by them makes me so happy. Showing them how it looks to give and love without strings attached has made them ask "why?" "I've never met anyone that didn't expect anything back." All I can say is I follow Jesus and what has been put deep in my heart for years. To love one another and build each other up and these moms need that and that is what we give.
