I (Sal) love
It hurts to see hurting women, which I dedicate this website to them-especially single mom's.
I began to see more of this issue on "widows" when I met this older lady in town raising two kids by herself. My heart was touched to do what I can to help this women to get back into her feet. I couldn't do it by myself, which another church in town put a lot of effort to do the same.
What the Bible Says?
TobyMac - Irene
"TobyMac's song "Irene" from the "Momentum" cd."
Are you divorced? Are you single and have kids? Have a boyfriend or girlfiend and have a kid together? Well, the Bible mentions you a lot!
4But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 5The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts her hope in God and continues night and day to pray and to ask God for help. 6But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead even while she lives. 7Give the people these instructions, too, so that no one may be open to blame. 8If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.-1 Timothy 3

I was watching the music video called "Irene" by Toby Mac and the video shows a young lady that has a kid. The video starts with her boyfriend getting an argument with her. From there, she takes her baby in a stroller through their (Latino?) community as Toby sings. At the end, she meets her boyfriend with a gift. The song encourages young "Irene" to not give-up despite her circumstances as the Lord is watching her and will take care of her. Cool huh? Give it up to Him no matter what your circumstances are in your relationship.

I found this ministry after searching some resources to help a local "widow" in Morris around 2002. I found this brochure that I kept from a Summer Picnic that H.O.T.C. speaheaded in the Twin Cities, which I get e-mails periodically on needs like this one....
