The National TLSM Single Moms’ Conference was a dream for 9 years in the heart of CEO, Jennifer Maggio. The idea of gathering single mothers of all ages, stories, and backgrounds to experience the love of Christ has been the foundation of The Life of a Single Mom Ministries for more than a decade. To date, over 50,000 single mothers from around the United States have connected to a single mothers support group in their church through the efforts of the global organization.
“A national single mother’s conference was the next logical step for our ministry,” says Maggio. “We wanted to create a conference for single mothers that gave them a place to relax, laugh, have fun, learn, grow, and be empowered. And we wanted to do it with excellence.”
The 2015 inaugural national single mom’s conference was a huge success. Single mothers and female supporters from 42 states and 3 countries gathering in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at Healing Place Church last June. Two days of workshops and vendor booths and games took place.
“It changed my life. It gave me hope, where they had been none, for a long, long time,” says Nicole, one 2015 single mom attendee.

The 2016 National TLSM Single Moms Conference is slated to be bigger than ever and is considered to be one of the nation’s largest Christian single mothers conferences in the country.
The goal of the national conference is to establish a foundation in the lives of single mothers, whether they be grandmothers parenting grandchildren, teen moms, divorcees, adoptive single mothers, or others who find themselves parenting alone, where they can grow in Christ, and in Him, find the strength to continue on.
