At age 19, Angela Ball aborted an unplanned pregnancy, and the trauma of that decision stayed with her for decades. But the Lord turned Angela’s pain into her purpose through Hearts for Moms. Listen in as she explains how her ministry provides resources to enrich the lives of single moms and their children!

Question Highlights

  • I often say that our hardest pain becomes our purpose, and I know that the trauma of aborting an unplanned pregnancy at age 19 stayed with you for a long time. What do you think when you look back at where you were to where you are now?
  • You surrendered to Jesus when you were 38 years old. Can you talk about how that came to be?
  • Can you take us back to the moment when Love Out Loud donated $33,300 to Hearts for Moms? What happens at your events? And what does your organization do for single moms?
  • What type of miracles or impact have you seen since Love Out Loud contributed to Hearts for Moms?
  • Single moms have such incredible strength, and I believe it’s the kind of fire that can change the world. Can you explain how your programs encourage that kind of transformation?
  • I wanted you to speak to somebody that’s listening today who is walking that single mom life and feeling so alone in what she has to overcome. What would you tell her?
  • A lot of single moms spend over half their income on housing expenses. Can you speak to why and how you’re hoping Hearts for Moms can bridge that gap?
