If you’ve been around the ministry for any length of time, you’ll know that Ministry Appreciation Nights are a big deal around here. The event gives the teen moms the opportunity to thank volunteers and supporters and share how they have helped them thrive. While each of the moms share different ways they have been helped, their message was similar, “I’m a better mom because of Kindred Life.”

Angie – “Thank you to teen dad mentors, your support helps our children’s fathers know there are people out there for them too!”

Jessica – “Thank you to our meal providers who make delicious dinners for us so we don’t have to go through the drive thru like we would normally do!”

Ingrid – “We can’t say thank you enough to donors who provide for our basic needs. You don’t know how much it helps!”

Justine – I want to thank our financial counselor for helping me become financially responsible and for all the amazing resources and tips me and the other moms have learned.”

Aundrea – “I’m grateful that we have a church like this to meet in each week. It gives us a chance to get out of the house and hang out with others in the same situation.”


Yessica–said in regards to her mentor, “I’m happy to have you in my life” and “you motivate me to achieve my goals.”

Nancy–“Thanks to our childcare providers  who watch our kids each week. I know they’re sometimes crazy.”



Michelle –“Thank you to our group grandmas who celebrate our birthdays and holidays like our own grandparents do.”

April –to her mentor, “I wouldn’t be the person I am today without you in my life. I thank God for bringing us together.”

Emma –“If it weren’t like women like you, I wouldn’t be able to attend a program like this….its the littlest things that mean the most.”
