The 21 Principles are now available for a small group in book in a book for single moms also.
Who is Lori Little and what are the “21 Principles of a Healthy Single Mom”?
The 21 Principles of a Healthy Single Mom are 21 verses of scripture the Lord gave Lori one night when she just wanted to give up and quit after being a single mom for two years. Lori became a single mom when her son Eric was just eighteen months old.
The Lord promised Lori that night if she followed these 21 verses of scripture, everything was going to be OK for her as a single mom. Lori spent the next seven years researching those 21 verses inside and out Biblically, along with anything she could find in the Christian bookstore that related to the topic of that scripture. She then built a model and life plan for herself as a single mom off of each scripture that she lives out faithfully every day. God was right! Everything is OK and she is “flourishing” in life as a single mom from the 21 Principles. Her son Eric is doing great also!
After successfully launching and directing John C. Maxwell’s new women’s division, “THRiVE”, Lori felt the Lord calling her to take what she learned and start a single mom’s ministry, specifically a DVD series and book for single moms to bring single moms back to the house of God that have fallen away, and for connection with other single moms.
Lori created a DVD Bible Study Series and book for single moms for the church to hold Sunday school classes, small groups, home or life groups for single mothers. She teaches on the DVD and through the book for single moms, what she learned from each one of the 21 verses of scripture and gives single mothers the same model and life plan she uses daily to live in victory as a single mom.
Because Lori knows first hand there is no time for homework during the week, she created an Audio series the single moms listen to during the week. These are her personal conversations with Dr. Charles Stanley, Kay Arthur, Dr. John Trent to name a few, who share their personal testimonies of either being a single mom or being raised by one. Each interview matches the Principle taught that week. Every single mom will also have the 21 Principles book for single moms to go through during the week.
Lori’s heart is for the church to have tools are resources that Build the Bridge between the church and the Single Mom. Lori experienced what it is like to feel you “don’t fit in anywhere” in the church as a single mom. She created the 21 Principles of a Healthy Single Mom DVD and book for single moms to reach the numerous single moms that too have fallen away from the church, ministry to the teen, never married and widowed single moms and as a post Divorce Care Program. The “21 Principles” classes make the church a “safe place” for the single mom.
How the 21 Principles of a Healthy Single Mom Works
The 21 Principles of a Healthy Single Mom DVD Bible study and single mom book can be used as a one-hour Sunday School class, Single Mom Small Group, Home Group, Life, or Community Group. The 21 Principles Study is divided into four six-week courses. Each Principle is free-standing and not progressive. Lori teaches on the DVD Series, Single Mom to Single Mom, what God taught her from each of these 21 verses of scripture (The 21 Principles). Lori shares how she has applied each scripture to her life that has allowed her to live in victory as a single mom. Discussion questions are also included at the end of each Principle on the DVD. Each participant will need the 21 Principles Student Book Single Mom Book.
Because Lori feels there is no time for homework or a workbook
during the week, she has created an Online Audio Series the single moms
listen to during the week. These Audio Interviews are Lori’s personal
conversations with Dr Charles Stanley and Dr. John Trent to name a few.
These greats share how they were raised by a single mother and all the
things their mom did in the home as a single mother that helped them be
all they are today. Or, they will hear Kay Arthur’s story of how
she was unsaved as a single mother and all the wrong roads she went down
with men and relationships. Kay shares how she let God into her life and
look at her now! Each one of these testimonies matches the Principle being
taught by Lori on the DVD for that week. The Interviews are downloadable
and are tracked every 10 minutes so a single mom can listen to them while
getting ready in the morning, then pick the story right back up while
cooking, driving to work or running errands. The combination of the Single
Mom Small Group series with the DVD, Single Mom Book for study and review
during the week, along with the Online Interviews make the 21 Principles
of a Healthy Single Mom easy for any busy single mom to use.
Who Should Facilitate a 21 Principles Class?
Lori’s goal in designing the 21 Principles DVD and book for Single Moms was to make this study easy for anyone to facilitate a class. Because Lori does all of the work for you right on the DVD, there is no need to worry about personally teaching, learning or going through training classes about the 21 Principles of a Healthy Single Mom.
As one leader of a 21 Principles class said; “The
material is laid out very well and is so easy to use. I feel like I am
there as the person to set the tone and make sure it starts and ends on
time. The time together runs by itself after that.”
The 21 Principles of a Healthy Single Mom Bible Study and book for single moms / Single Mom Small Group provides a church resource for their single moms ministry that is easy to use and facilitate. The 21 Principles will also raise single moms to a new level and encourage them to flourish spiritually in every aspect of their life, leading single moms to live a life of purpose and meaning, focus and order, balance and harmony. The 21 Principles of a Healthy Single mom offers the church the best resource to start an effective, long-lasting single mom ministry.

DVD/Bible Study Success Stories
I have gotten rave reviews of our conference with you on Saturday
night to our single parents. Everyone really enjoyed it and
have said, “Yes, let’s do this again!” I am so
thrilled with their response and participation."
"One thing everybody agreed on — "yourself"
gets pushed to the bottom of the list too many times! But one thing everybody
does for "yourself" now is coming to Lori's Healthy Single Mom
Bible study meeting!!"
"The teaching on your DVD was wonderful!! I wore my
wedding band for over a year after my husband died so nobody would know
that I am a single mom. It took me a year to even be able to say the word
widow. It was an ugly word
that made me feel like the "poor thing". That's who I was, and
my children were turning into poor little things. I can understand now
how we buy into the lies and act accordingly. Thank you for sharing all
your experiences and wisdom! It is a great encouragement!!"
"Starting your class was
so amazing because I have been praying really hard for God to help me
get through this time of being alone to raise my son who is now 7 months
old. As I watched your DVD, it's as if you knew how I have been feeling.
But now I know that by following your principles and with God's help little
by little I will be able to get through this time. Thank you for giving
me hope already."
"Thanks for personally calling
our class in New Jersey tonight and praying for us! Everybody here loved
it and we had a great time of sharing and some fun too. I can't wait to
get the next DVD!"
Our first meeting was awesome. I am so happy to report we had 5 NEW ladies;
13 in all, and one new lady helper. Thank you for making the study so
easy to lead and for the great information you have provided."
material! A significant foundation for any single parent ministry
and a must for all "double moms" who have to do it all."
"The content is incredible.
Lori is a great speaker, easy to understand and follow along with."
Thank you for all your support
and prayers. We all really appreciate it!!! Not only do we learn from
your teachings, but now we also have each other!!!
The classes we had with the ladies
went so well. We had a very good response during the
discussion time; the ladies were very open to share. They are looking
forward for the next session. Thank you again for your encouragement.
Single moms are attending the 21 Principles class regularly!
This is huge for us because with other studies,it was kind of off
and on. This is a great ministry that the Lord has given to you, I love
your honesty and the way you are not afraid to speak the truth.
I pray that this program will continue to grow and it is my intention
to next year open it up to our community.
Thank you for giving back to the Lord by serving all single
moms through the studies you've developed. I have been able to wrestle
and work through many issues like guilt, hurt and forgiveness with the
words God spoke to me through His word and your studies.
"Weeks later I am still amazed at the profound impact
of attending one of Lori Little's one day conferences. The presence of
the Holy Spirit changed lives right before our eyes. The praise time was
genuine and touching, and most importantly, we were bathed in God's Word
as Lori presented the some of the principles for victorious Christian
living. I left encouraged and strengthened. This material is a must for
all single moms!"
Being a single parent in this incredibly
challenging world is a singular calling. It needs a divine enabling that
is available through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Lori has developed
some tools to bring to practical reality, some of the spiritual skills
needed for this exacting vocation. Help is available through her material.
Her heart is to enable, encourage and equip for the task.
"A ministry of this kind...and caliber!...is past due. And who better than Lori Little to lead the way? Lori loves the Lord, loves her family, and loves to encourage other single moms. Her 21 Principles for a Healthy Single Mom are a godsend."
"The role of parenting is a great challenge even when the home has two parents! So when a single mom is faced with the responsibility of going it alone, she needs all the help she can get. The godly wisdom and encouragement found in 21 Principles for a Healthy Single Mom can give her that help."
"Christian Single Mothers are children of God and Lori has powerfully shown how their Heavenly Father can meet their personal and parenting needs."
Dr. Neil T. Anderson, author, Victory over the Darkness and The Bondage Breaker; Founder & President Emeritus of Freedom in Christ
"Lori Little has been raised up by God to speak to the Body of Christ about the issues that confront single mothers in this generation. She is bold, courageous and addresses the issues with biblical clarity that concern this pressing need in our culture and the world. We are proud to be associated with and partnering alongside Hope and Help for the Single Mom."
Dr. Joseph & Mrs. Kathy Wasmond, President Freedom in Christ Ministries
"I am elated that someone has finally
stepped up to the plate to address
Michelle McKinney Hammond, author of "The Power of Being A Woman"
I came across the website on Crosswalk.com and thats where I found you. Thank the Lord! I know the Lord provided. Your CD helped me know that just because you are saved does not mean your prior baggage is gone. Even though I have gone through Beth Moores Breaking Free study, believe me, I wish I had the help that I have now from your CDs when I first became a single mom.
I'm so glad there's someone strong like you that cares about us single mom's who are forgotten by so many others."
I just finished listening to The Principle of VICTORY and it was excellent. I thought I was healed, but you know how God goes into the secret places, the dark places to shine the light. Mine is a story to tell of how I needed, and got a new heart...a transplant. Listening to the VICTORY CD lead me in the direction of that heart transplant and today I can say I am free for all past bondages.
I have learned from your CDs who I am in Christ and the wonderful promises that God has for me are absolutely beautiful. I wholeheartedly believe that there is hope hope in Christ. God Bless You. I was deeply blessed with the first five CDs on Hope & Help for the Single Mom as a matter of fact, I lend it out to a co-worker who was in a desperate need.
People who are lost need to identify and relate to something. When we share in the same pain or experience that brought us to Christ there is power in that. Everyone needs to have stepping stones to their relationship with God. Your CD brought me to that point in my life where I myself just could not do it any other way except through Our Lord. I had tried so many times to do it other ways.
I really enjoy listening to your CDs when I get home at night. I appreciate that format being super busy during the week. Sometimes I listen to them when I am cooking dinner. I also enjoy listening to them in the car. Other times, I fall asleep to a CD at night. Keep up the good work and God bless you!
I can't tell you how glad I am to have listened to the Mid-Day Connection radio program and heard you speaking from the heart with other single moms. I ordered the first set of CD's for a friend of mine. Thank you for fighting for the homes of our world!
Thank you for the wonderful messages on the first few CDs. I cant wait to purchase the rest of them.
Pastors Are Saying
"You build stability, strength, the
spiritual hunger in the life of your children. And when you honor your
children, by giving them a beautiful example, God will use your children
in ways, you could never imagine.
"Having been a single mother myself, I know how easy it is to believe the enemy and lose focus on God's plans for your life. The 21 Principles of a Healthy Single Mom can revolutionize how a single mother views herself. She will begin to see herself as God sees her and become an integral tool of influence in her children's lives."
