CGgirl…you can’t pull one over on me. Summer is winding down. One trip to Target and I see school supplies are out in abundance, kids back-to-school clothing sales are everywhere — I know a wind down when I see it.
In so many ways, it feels like summer never even started this year.
Looking at the calendar I see a special date coming our way. October 17th will be our next CommonGround event. This one really touches our hearts.
Why? Because we want all women to win. We see so many women living in defeat through bad choices and broken hearts. I bet one or two popped into your mind as you read that — maybe it’s even you.
If we can help girls change lanes; we want to help!
In October our outreach spotlight will be Alternatives for Girls.
This wonderful organization helps homeless and high-risk girls and young women avoid violence, teen pregnancy and exploitation, and helps them to grow strong and make positive choices.
We’re collecting the following items: Construction Paper, Crayons, Colored Pencils, new bras (all sizes) and new socks (all sizes).
Recently, a woman contacted me and shared with me some good insight. She grew up very poor most of her young life and when she would get bras they would always be used, worn out of shape.
She said she never forgot what it was like when she finally got a new bra. It made her feel like a million dollars.
A good reminder, huh?
What do you say? Let’s go find the prettiest bras for these young ladies and let’s make them feel like a million dollars!
CG events are open to all women (ages 13+) and if you’ve never experienced a cross denominational event before where women from over 30 Detroit-area churches
gather together to worship the Living God you are missing something….really special. Spread the word and join the party on October 17th, 7pm at Connection Church in Canton.
