I hope your summer days were full of memories and cherished moments. Yes, I know that won’t be true of everyone, so let me rephrase. As summer is behind us, I hope you saw God in a way that might have been new, true and awakening. Many years ago, as I raised my daughters (now young adults), we made new memories and I tried to make each outing an adventure. This summer, however, was quite different for our family. My own mother, JoAnn Kaloustian, went to heaven peacefully on August 24, 2021. As I mourn my mom and my own memories of her, I also see God as a Comforter like I never experienced before. God gave me a wonderful community of friends and family who have blessed me more than I could have imagined. Friend, we need a community to care, love and pray for one another. We need friendships.
As we enter into sweater weather, picked apples transformed into favorite recipes, soccer games and book clubs, I encourage you to attend one of Her Life Speaks’ Small Groups. It occurred to me that there are many who may have no idea what a small group is. So let me share with you the top reasons why you should join us:
Our Small Groups are meeting virtually, in person, nights, days, in NJ and PA. If you know a teen girl, you know how easily influenced she is in the world of social media today. We can’t change everyone else, but we can certainly encourage and equip teen girls who show up virtually at our small group on Tuesday nights. From my own experiences as a girl, I can’t say enough how important it is for girls to gather in their own space to let their hair down and to be themselves with no worry of judgment. Most importantly, your teen will realize that she is not alone in her walk with God and as she navigates her own journey.
My community is everything to me.
“... there should be equal concern for each other. If one woman suffers, we all suffer, if she is honored, we all rejoice with her. You are one. You each have a part to offer.”
Paraphrased 1 Corinthians 12:25-27
I hope you’ll join us.
