And just like that we’re back with another session of A Look in the Mirror!
I am just extremely excited to be back in the presence of such wonderful young ladies, all ready to learn about self-esteem, their worth and so many other things. I had almost all my girls from last session sign up, which was an amazing feeling! Needless to say, I was ready for a new session!
This year I broke the ages down into three separate sessions: girls ages 10-12, 13-15 and 16-18. The girls were all so amazing! I can’t wait to see what the next several weeks bring!
So, a lot of my sign-ups had prior plans or did not show…and I got really discouraged. I wondered if I was supposed to be doing this, or if I was doing something wrong, but I introduced a new function to my classes this session and so far it has blessed me tremendously. The girls write how they feel at the start of class and at the end of class, so that I can keep track of their progress. I came home after a long day yesterday and decided to open my “mailbox” and got the note that confirmed it all for me:
Not only that, but today I saw a few of my parents and they just gave me such encouragement and THAT is what this is all about. I do this so my girls can be heard, understood and so that they can know how to handle what this world gives them. Life is rough, but my prayer is that they can build their foundational truth and rely on that when things get rough.
