As some of you may know back in 2006 I started a Gurls Teen Group at my home called Raisingurls to Women. In those meetings every other Sunday, we would talk about peer pressure, boys, school, grades, parents, attitudes, how to deal with anger. We talked about so many different things and shared a lot of stories.
We gave them hotel parties where we would build and bond, played games, eat, snack, and even walked over to the bowling alley next door with lots of arcade games to play. We took them to the movies several times, out to dinner, we had candy sales, we had 5-6 great summers!!! But the thing that has amazed me being with these gurls, is the fact that many of them HAVE/ARE graduating from High School… and several from COLLEGE. I am so proud of my gurls, I don’t know what to do. They still come to me for advice and support. I keep up with them on FB and right now I want to share some photos with you all. I’m so PROUD!!!
