Pam Kanaly is a published author, former talk-show cohost, and a leading advocate for single moms across America. Her public speaking is fueled by her joy for life and love for Christ.
When Pam was a little girl, all she wanted to be was a hula dancer, but God had other plans. After an unwanted divorce, God spoke to her in an undeniable way: Pam, one day I will raise you up to speak to thousands of women about what my grace and power can do. Today Pam is one of America’s leading advocates for single mothers.
Pam is a published author and co-founder of Arise Ministries, better known as Arise Single Moms, a global nonprofit celebrating over twenty years of empowering single mothers to create healthy homes. Through their online resources, Arise has reached almost a half a million single mothers in every state in the US and over 140 countries. With a passion to equip single moms with biblical tools for handling everyday life, Pam co-founded the regional Thrive single mother conferences.
Having been nominated by former Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, Pam was selected as National Mother of Achievement in Washington, DC, and honored by the Oklahoma Journal Record as one the Top 50 Women Making a Difference. As a former Bible teacher and national television talk-show cohost, Pam thrives in equipping women to live life with intentional purpose and full-powered joy.
Pam and her husband Rich reside in Edmond, Oklahoma, where she’s Grammy Pammy to nine grandchildren. Pam loves life and it loves her right back. Ask anyone. Her life motto fits her well: LET – IT – SHINE.
