Mother-daughter event (Sat. Mar 12, 2016 9:00 am - 12:00 pm)

Being a teenager has never been more challenging. With often unrealistic portrayal of women in the media and the power of social media to perpetuate negative messages and bullying, girls are prone to feeling inadequate, isolated and confused. That’s why Mighty Strong Girls is inviting girls 12 and older and their moms to a half day event where they can be inspired by stories of overcoming and learn how to use tools like prayer, Bible reading and spiritual mentors.

 

The mother-daughter event is FREE and registration begins at 8:30 a.m. Participants will hear real stories from girls about what Biblical purity and fearlessness look like and how to overcome life’s hang-ups and hardships.

 

“This event will empower girls and their moms to step out in faith to be the person God designed them to be,” said Amy Denney, founder of Mighty Strong Girls. “We like to talk frankly and bring issues into the light that girls deal with on a regular basis so that we can transform and get us closer in step with our identities.”
