WHO ARE WE
We are a group of girls, mostly in our 20s, who share a desire to give girls a vision of who God is and who they are. We work all kinds of jobs and have all kinds of stories about friends and siblings and guys and church and adventures. We all have different personalities, parents, and experiences. Odds are, someone here knows what you’re talking about.
Over three days, our goal is to pour into you what’s been poured into us, no matter what your faith background is. We want to teach from God’s word and our own stories about topics like relationships (with friends, family, and guys), forgiveness, identity, media, sexuality, and trust. We want to teach about how to spend time with God, how to not live in fear, how to pray, and what it truly means to be a woman. We want to put you on a small group team where you can talk it out with team leaders to mentor you and pray with you. We want to make a safe place for you to tell your stories, ask questions, and understand things better. We also want to have a shaving cream fight, outdoor games, a dance party, and at the end, a special dinner for you. There will be crafty stuff, music, games, and of course, a big sleepover every night. It’s gonna be good.
What WE DO
“I grew up in the church, and as a teenager, I found out I had problems. Real problems; problems I didn’t know what to do with. At a girls retreat I saw other girls, a little older than me, following Christ, sticking with the church, loving their families, and talking about real issues. Girls retreats turned out to be a place where any kind of girl and problem were welcome. It turned out to be a place where it was safe to be yourself, share your struggles if you want, and enjoy life, with a lot of fun games, food, and music. Those girls helped me see the trinity God was big enough to hold all the little fragmented parts of life together pain, joy, hope, loss, past, future, friends, family, eating, worshiping, studying, dancing, media, sexuality, bravery, bodies, souls. He can be trusted. Those girls trusted Him and enjoyed Him and I saw them do it. It had a huge influence on my life in how I interacted with God, with the church, and with my family up through adulthood. It has shaped the way I pray and have relationships and understand my purpose. I thank God for the way older girls mentored me in my faith and I want to always give that to other girls.”
