The Life of a Single Mom Ministries is excited to share a few of the photos of the National Single Mom of the Year ceremony held on Friday, 10/3. It was a great joy to spend 3 days with our national award recipient, Lorri Linkhart.
She was greeted by a welcoming committee at the airport, complete with a Louisiana Welcome Basket, and then whisked off to a Galatoire’s, a fine-dining restaurant for lunch with our Chief Executive Officer and Board of Directors. She, then, shared her testimony at a Meet & Greet at The Life of a Single Mom headquarters. She was given a makeover, accommodations in a 4-star hotel, cash, gifts, and more. She was even declared an Honorary Senator by the State of Louisiana, when she visited the State Capitol Building.
One of the most beautiful things she shared is how hard the last 2 years have been for her, having suffered a heart attack, diabetes diagnosis, and sexual assault, among other things. She cried out to God, asking him if he saw her. Her words to the other single moms present were as follows:
“He is with you. He sees you and He says go ahead with your dreams!” – Lorri Linkhart, 2014 National Single Mom of the Year,
**** Nominations for the 2015 National Single Mom of the Year are now open.****
Thanks to these Corporate Sponsors for making Lorri’s time in town such an unbelievable experience.
