We have really enjoyed Girlz of hope! It has given me an opportunity to spend needed time with my oldest daughter!
Through some of the lessons at girlz of hope my daughter and I have had some great talks. It has real connected us together in a new way.
One of the best talks was after a lesson about being who you are! At Girlz of Hope that night, sue hatcher was having them really think of how each girl see’s themselves. She was encouraging the girls to be who God has created them to be.
Well, that night as I was tucking my daughter in her bed. She said,” mom, sometimes I try and act like other people, instead of being myself,’ then I told her,” Remember, what Mrs. Sue was talking about at Girlz of hope? How God created you to be you? I told her. It’s ok look up to others. But not to act like they do because God has created you to be who you are. He created others to be who they are! So be the awesome girl God has made you to be!’’
The great part about this was I had several weeks before been noticing my daughter trying to act like someone else.
I had been praying and asking the Lord how to talk with her about it. Through Girl of hope, God used this to bring what was going on into the light and helped me to discuss it and explain it with her.
Now I am so excited to be bringing bot my girl to Girlz of hope. My other daughter has just turn eight and she gets to come too!
THANK YOU GIRLZ OF HOPE !!!!!!!
When Sue approached me about a group she launched for moms and daughters, I was thrilled! Our church has a strong girl’s ministry, but lacked an organization in which the relationships of mothers and daughters, ages eight to eighteen, were nourished in a Christ centered environment. It was an answer that came in a pivotal point in my relationship with my eldest daughter, Myah. As a busy working mom, the focus of nourishing the relationships with my daughters can get lost in the day-to-day routines. However, I have found each monthly meeting to have a profound impact on both Myah and myself. Prophecy was spoken over us both and I am uplifted every time I leave. Only positive things can come from spending quality time and to connect on a deeper level with your daughter. I pray for young women to know the love of Christ through Girlz of Hope. Even abandoned daughters need to know the love of Christ and need to be able to seek comfort in His love. It’s a ministry that has the potential to touch a community, a generation, and to impact the lives of girls all over the world.
