worthy

i love my bible study group of girlies!!!
they are awesome for a number of reasons...

they are fun {which is so important in life}

beautiful and even pensive when they need to be...

they laugh at themselves {another super valuable lesson in life}

and they are down right supportive, loving and awesome!!!!

they love jesus with all their hearts...
they are trying to do the right thing in a world that is full of temptations...
and they are doing it together!!!
so i'm paying tribute today to girlies in high school who take a stand for their faith...who don't just allow others to form who they are. they are formed by who they worship and who they serve.

high school girls need {NEED and DESIRE} loving support from adults. we all do, actually. pray for our teens...and if you can serve them, do it...and remember, tell them how awesome they are. they hear it sooooo little. and mentor...mentor when and if you can...in any way.

you never know what affect you will have on someone's life...and a teen girl is very worthy of your wisdom and time.

you sometimes just plant seeds...and often times with teens, you don't see the harvest. someone has to plant the seeds...and you could be the only person holding that particular seed. plant some today

"Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously." 2 corinthians 9:6

I love you for doing this. A good Bible Study teacher for teen girls is hard to find, and can be a lifeline to a girl who isnt comfortable confiding in her own parents. Thank you.

This brought back so many memories for me of the people along my journey who planted positive seeds when I was a teen. So many of them, I am sure, are totally unaware that little comments meant so much that I would still remember it 25 years later! You are so right!

By the way, you have amazing graphics.... don't I remember you saying that you designed the blog yourself? Anyway, how the heck do you get the lettering on your photos? And what editor do you use?

What a great tribute to the girls and to you for what you do with them.

This post gave me goose bumps thinking about how difficult it can be for teens to make a stand for what is right in this world. So encouraging to see your group of girls do just that. Making a positive stand and impact on their world for Christ. I pray that my children will stand tall for Him when they are teens as well. Keep planting those seeds.
