Guiding Light Ministries is dedicated to sharing God’s love with young mothers ages 24 and under, and their children by meeting their practical, emotional and spiritual needs. Through the Guiding Light Ministries, we can assist young mothers toward self-sufficiency to give the best possible life start to their children.
Embrace young mothers and their children by demonstrating the love of Jesus and empowering them to become independent, contributing members in their community.
As apostles of Christ we certainly had a right to make some demands of you, but instead we were like children among you. Or we were like a mother feeding and caring for her own children. 8 We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God’s Good News but our own lives, too.
1 Thessalonians 2:7-8
Mentoring & Small Groups – Young mothers will be paired with a mentor. This mentor will be a Christian wife and mother experiencing the joys and challenges of marriage and parenthood. Mentors will seek to build relationships and share life experiences through demonstrating biblical grace and truth. Mentors will be women of faith who share their love and life experiences with young moms who attend. Mentors and Guiding Light volunteers will help the girls set financial, educational, personal, and spiritual goals.
