What does a Saturday morning, a yummy breakfast, lots of flowers, a fashion show, sweet mothers and their daughters and a look at God’s Word have in common? That’s it…the first annual Pure and Whole Girl’s Conference at Rolling Hills! This past Saturday was a genuine time of worship and celebrating the goodness of God’s relationships with His daughters. This conference was born as a dream of two moms who desired to have time together with other moms and their daughters. It has been such a neat journey to this point.
Truth. Transparency. Honesty. Realness. These words seem to capture the truth of the message Susan Briggs shared with girls and moms! She challenged moms to fight for their daughters and believe in them, supporting them with truth and grace. The Lord gives moms and daughters such a unique bond and He calls us to love and encourage one another, asking the hard questions and being transparent with our struggles. As she shared God’s story in her life, the beauty of redemption and God’s deep love for us brought light. His presence was real and sweet in this place.
Who doesn’t love a fun fashion show? Sheila Hail and Blush Boutique provided several trendy, adorable and modest outfits and accessories for a few sets of mothers and daughters to model! With fun music and great commentary, the girls were able to see how they can be tasteful, cute and God honoring in their daily dress!
Moms had a chance to have a skype conversation with Judy Williams and ask the hard questions about being moms to daughters! She is a mother to three girls and has many years of experience in loving and challenging them to walk in the ways of the Lord!
While the moms met with Judy, the girls had an opportunity to meet with Katherine Crouse and have an honest time of questions and answers with Maria and Susan! It was neat to see the girls be vulnerable and ask the difficult questions.
With all the prayer and preparation, the Lord was faithful in His presence and His Word at the Girl’s Conference! The stories of what He did on Saturday are being shared and hearts were truly drawn closer to Him. These are exciting and precious moments in the life of girl’s ministry!
