    Finding strength and resilience through single parenting

    Finding strength and resilience through single parenting

    Lauren Rostron is more than just a Single Momma and she is more than her title as a Youth and Worship Pastor. Lauren has experienced first hand the freedom that comes from releasing yourself of labels and instead embracing yourself just as you are. She has found strength and resilience through a painful season of divorce and single parenting. Lauren has let gratitude and community lead her as she has boldly stepped out of the muddy tunnel and into the light. When she is not leading worship or mentoring a high school student, you will find Lauren cuddling her pup Ruby and loving on her beautiful babies Marley (7) and Judd (4). Connect with Lauren at https://www.instagram.com/lo.rostron/

    Cultivating Community and Belonging with Tim Anderson

    Cultivating Community and Belonging with Tim Anderson

    People in need of services may face hurdles to get the services they need.  To get all of the services one person needs, that person may need to walk through several doors in a single day. That is why we've partnered with Ace in the City and other Twin Cities charities to provide a holistic approach to charity and social services of a kind that is totally unique in Minnesota: The Center of Belonging.

    At the Center of Belonging, a client with various needs can walk through one door and find what they need behind it.  Their needs will be triaged and they will be directed to the services needed, all in one place. This month we are talking all things Center of Belonging--and guess what? It is currently under construction! We are thrilled to call the Center of Belonging our future service site.

    In this month's episode of To Emerge, we speak with Tim Anderson, founder of Ace in the City. Tim shares how the Center of Belonging came to be and the vision to provide a place where everyone feels known and feels like they belong.  As nonprofits, we are coming together with the same goal--to communicate to clients that they belong.

    Ace in the City is a Twin Cities-based nonprofit. They work to cultivate community through relationships while building safe spaces of belonging where all are known, valued, and loved. Learn more about Ace in the City: https://www.aceinthecity.org/

    Walking in Confidence as a Single Mother

    The To Emerge Podcast is excited to announce a new direction! We are shifting our focus to monthly interviews centered on empowering mothers. Our desire is to have you walk away believing that you can do this, you have the ability to rise up and the capacity to emerge.

    Today’s episode features Sindy, a single mother from Emerge Mothers Academy. Sindy is a Colombian powerhouse who through the pain of divorce and the struggles of single parenting, has found an unshakable joy. She welcomes you to walk with her through her past and present stories hoping you find confidence and tenacity to power through your story too.

    “You don’t come into this with a lot of confidence. However, through this process, you gain confidence. And I’m over here on this side. I’m not the woman I was two years ago. I’m so much stronger because every time I got through a day, I was like, Okay, I did yesterday, so I think I can do today.”
