First Lady Singleton was joined in holy matrimony with Pastor Singleton on October 5, 1997, and from this union God has blessed them with three wonderful children: Shawn II, Jacqueline, and Alaina. Pastor Singleton refers to her as “His Personal Angel,” because she was sent from God to help him be all that God has called him to be, and over the past 15 years she has walked with him hand-in-hand in ministry. Her favorite scripture is Proverbs 31:10-31.
