Attention Young Ladies!

It has recently been made known to me that there are a number of outstanding events for young ladies coming up this summer here in Texas!  They look like wonderful opportunities for receiving Godly encouragement and practical training in so many areas of life.  If you are a young woman, please consider looking into how you might participate in one of these events.



For starters, in the month of July, there will be two conferences held back-to-back in Carrollton, Texas (Dallas area) hosted by the Mally family and their Bright Lights ministry team.  Back when I was involved with Maiden's Quest retreats, Sarah Mally, the founder of Bright Lights, was a huge help to me with wise advice, great ideas, and practical resources for putting on a retreat/conference like MQ.  We actually borrowed from the model of the Bright Lights conferences when planning our own.   They are full of great teachings, hilarious skits, beautiful music, and Godly role models.  

Here is detailed information you need to know:

Strong in the Lord Conference 
Age: 8-14
Topics:
• How to be Strong for the Lord in Your Youth
• Making Brothers and Sisters Best Friends
• How to Turn Your Heart to Your Parents
• How to Be a Bright Light in the World
• Keeping Yourself Pure from Polluting Influences
• Seeking the Lord with All of Your Heart
• Developing a Disciplined Walk with God

Includes insightful testimonies by godly young ladies, humorous skits, a chalk talk, harp music, singing, small group times with sharing and interaction, hands-on activities, and practical teaching that will challenge and prepare young ladies to remain strong for the Lord through their teen years.

Parents are encouraged to attend the conference in order to hear what their daughters are learning and reinforce it at home. While the girls are meeting in small groups, sessions will be offered for fathers and mothers. Sessions will cover topics such as the importance of protecting your children, how fathers can set a godly pace for their family, how to win the hearts of your daughters, and building strong mother/daughter relationships.

A young lady who is pure shines with a radiant brightness in this world of darkness. How can a young lady stay physically and emotionally pure as she waits for God’s best in marriage? How can parents protect and guide? Creatively presented through stories and testimonies, practical instruction, skits, and real-life examples, this conference gives Biblical answers to everyday questions and deep life struggles. The material is discreet and appropriate for twelve year olds, yet relevant to all ages. Includes testimonies from young ladies who serve as Bright Lights staff, chalk drawings, and harp music.

On a completely different note, it gives me great pleasure to introduce to you a new ministry that is launching this summer called Academy 31!


From the looks of it, Academy 31 seems like a two-week Maiden's Quest experience - only run by different leaders and located on a lovely farm in central Texas!  This unique summer camp experience for young ladies who are in high school or beyond promises to provide in-depth Bible study, practical skill building, and the fun of life on a farm.  I know a couple of the leaders involved with Academy 31 as well as the host family and can, therefore, highly recommend signing up for this one-of-a-kind camp!  

The dates are August 12-24 and they are only accepting 18 girls, so time is of the essence if you want to participate in Academy 31!  Please check out their BEAUTIFUL website and learn more about this wonderful new ministry!
