How do you define "single" mom?
The Life of a Single Mom Ministries defines single mothers as divorced, separated, never married, military wives, widows, moms with incarcerated or incapacitated spouses, or foster moms. Because this event is a women-only event catered to single moms and single mom supporters, we welcome any woman to be a part of the National TLSM Single Moms conference.
Can you tell me about the conference venue and location?
This year, we are excited to announce that we will be hosting three regional conferences in lieu of one national conference. Please see below for details about each location:
Our first conference will be held on May 4, 2019 at Family Life Fellowship located at 1614 Highway 24 East, Moberly, MO 65270. Click HERE to register for the Missouri Conference.
On June 15, 2019, we will be traveling to Houston's First Baptist Church located at 7401 Katy Fwy, Houston, TX 77024. Click HERE to register for the Texas Conference.
Our final stop will be at Olive Baptist Church on July 13, 2019 located at 1836 E. Olive Rd. Pensacola, FL 32614. Click HERE to register for the Florida Conference.
How is the conference designed?
Will there be food? What about special dietary needs?
Lunch will be provided at approximately 11:45am and will end at 12:30pm. Children registered for childcare will also be fed. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate special dietary needs and ask you to please consider packing a lunch, if you have allergies.
Can you tell me more about the breakout sessions?
Why isn't the conference free?
While The Life of a Single Mom Ministries works with a number of churches nationally, we are not affiliated with any church. Therefore, we fund 100% of the conferences. To provide meals, entertainment, after-party, gifts & surprises, and national speakers is a significant expense, and we do not relay most of those costs to you. However, we do ask you to make a small investment to help offset total costs. This year, our conferences are offered at the reduced rate of $29.00. Childcare is available for $5/child.
Are there business marketing opportunities?
There are a number of promotional opportunities available for marketing and a number of sponsorship packages. You also have the opportunity to host a vendor booth. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Are there group discounts? How can I register a group?
Group discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. Please note that group discounts are $5 off, per mom, ($24/each) and must be processed through our office. To register your group, please email our office at email@example.com with list of how many tickets you need, full names and emails for each ticket, as well as how many childcare tickets you need (must include child's full name, allergies, date of birth, and grade). We will follow up to process payment.
** Tickets are transferrable, but non-refundable.
Is the conference ONLY for single moms, or can my mom, friend, co-worker, or family member attend with me?
Many women attend in support of a friend or family member. Single Moms Ministry Leaders or those hoping to launch a single moms support group are also highly encouraged to attend. In fact, we beg you to come be inspired! It’s a great way to show your support for single moms in your life and learn new ways to minister to them. There will be breakout sessions that address topics that are relevant to all women.
When is the deadline to register for these events?
There is no registration deadline for any of these events. However, we do fully expect that all of our conferences will sell out, so we recommend registration as soon as possible. Also, please be aware that all childcare and ticket sales are first come, first serve, and usually sells out each year. While there is no deadline and we will sell tickets up to the start of the event, we highly recommend booking tickets early.
I lead a Single Moms Support Group in my church. Will there be training?
Yes, our goal is to equip single mom ministry leaders with effective tools to minister to single moms in their church and community. We work with more than 1,500 churches globally to ensure pastors and leaders are equipped in the ministry. We’ll have ministry time just for you!

Can my children attend?
Childcare is provided for children ages 6 weeks through 5th grade at $5 per child for all 3 locations. Houston, however, does also accept 6th-8th grade. (Please note that childcare is only provided up to 8th grade in Houston. Missouri & Florida stop at 5th grade. Teen girls can attend with their mothers, but must be registered as an attendee). Childcare space is limited, due to size of the conferences. Registration is required and no children under 12 years old will be allowed in the main sessions. We do recommend that if you have alternative childcare you take advantage of that, so we can accommodate as many precious single moms as possible.
Are single dads invited, too?
We recognize that single dads who are raising children alone need encouragement and resources, too, which is why The Life of a Single Mom has partnered with a number of agencies and events nationally to do so. However, our regional TLSM single moms’ conferences will be ladies-only conferences.
What can I do once the conference ends?

"This conference saved my life.
Literally. And I am so thankful."
A week before this conference, my world started to crumble. I had every excuse not to come. Didn't have a baby sitter, didn't have five dollars to bring her to the nursery, got into an accident, got served to testify in court. But I knew this was for me and so I decided to go and I am so happy I did. I know your mission is to inspire women and that no single mom walks alone, but you did so much more for me.
