Lori Apon

Widowed with eight children to raise on her own, Lori has devoted her life to mentoring, discipling, and ministering to women and widows in transition. Perspective Ministries was born out of her calling to meet the needs of the widow and fatherless equipping the church and community to do the same.

“HIS EASY, PURPOSED, FIT-FOR-USE YOKE IS ALWAYS TAILOR-MADE TO FIT JUST AS HE PLANNED -- FOR OUR GOOD AND HIS GLORY."

As a child, all I ever wanted was to be a wife and mother. The Lord gave me the desire of my heart first when I married my husband. 

We chose to trust God at His Word, “Children are a gift of the Lord, happy is the man whose quiver is full,” and God filled our quiver with eight precious children. Sadly, when my children were all under the age of ten, my husband made the choice to take his own life. The night before his death, Psalm 68:5 “I am a defender of the widow and Father to the fatherless,” was quoted in church. God’s Word planted its seed of life in my heart charting the course for the next season of my life. His perspective was my anchor as I faced life as a widow raising eight fatherless children. Immediately God moved into our lives in His promised position as Father to the fatherless and Husband to the widow.

I have remained very content as a widow for 18 years believing widowhood is my calling. It is my joy to mentor and disciple other ladies who are just starting this journey.
