Friendships! - oh-cincinnati

January Update:

Money matters! This week we played the Bean Game (developed by Next Gen Personal Finance) to talk about smart spending. Each girl got twenty beans and had to make some tough decisions about how to spend them on what really matters. We talked about the difference between needs and wants and how to start saving.

And what pairs better with The Bean Game than five layer bean dip!?

Monday Funday! - mo-stlouis

January Update:

Chicktime STL started out with a bang in 2020! Miss Sandy & Miss Joy taught is how to get organized for the new year!! They brought date books for everyone, stickers, that cute tape (forgot the name), calendars & lots of support!!! Miss Sandy says she has family date book parties where some fam members get together w/ their date books and map out scheds, goals etc & then plan how to achieve them. Wow!!! 😍😍😍That’s one of the greatest ideas we’ve had so far, and we’ve had some good ones!

The littles were so cute. Some lil cutie enjoyed her whipped cream! Pennie came thru with awesome decorating ideas, as always, and our new friend LOVED making plans for her new arrival this year. Thank you ladies for an ♥️AMAZING♥️ evening!

Learning About Cars! - tx-bulverde

January Update:

Chicktime Bulverde started the New Year off with its annual Chicktime calendar and t-shirt designing workshop. The calendar hi-lites all the Chicktime workshops and events and even gives them something to color each month. Next, the designed a t-shirt with a “word of Inspiration” to live by for the next year.

There are a lot of talent with this group. We wrapped things up with lunch, consisting of tamales, chili, rice and queso. A big “shout out” to our wonderful volunteers who gave their Saturday morning to these kids.

Please join us next month as the Alamo City LX Modern Mopar Group shows the kids at SJRC basic car maintenance.

Such a beautiful day! We had great wonderful conversations with the girls today as they decorated their hearts.

As a thank you, we gave the staff donuts and gingerbread for breakfast to let them know how much we appreciate them.

A huge thank you to H-E-B for the food, drinks and snacks – as usual, they truly enjoyed the treat. We cannot say enough about our awesome volunteers! You each bring so much joy to these beautiful souls ♡♡♡. #HEBHelpingHere

Spa Day! - fl-tallahassee

Be Mine! - tx-galveston

January Update:

We had the BEST time at our first event of the year.
We started with our prayer circle were we reminded the families that they are LOVED that this is but a stepping stone to the greater things that God has for them.

 

Emma Posada read the Story of Jesus Birth and life to the kids and really touched my heart when she mentioned that they too would receive a gift as they too were special like Jesus. It brought tears to my eyes.

The kids enjoyed yummy pizza, a traditional rosca to celebrate the three Wise men that came to visit Jesus and brought him gifts.
They also each received a special gold coin and they got to make their very own crown and nativity scene!!
They got to take pictures with one of the wise men.
The children were very excited to receive toys and the families were able to participate in a free garage sale where they were able to receive free clothing and other items donated by so many volunteers.
We look forward to our next event on February 15!
Come join the movement!!

Taking It On The Road Again! - tx-sanmarcosgjc

We are taking it on the road again! This time we are leading a workshop at

Chicktime New Braunfels Downtown! If you can make it…come on down!!

January Update:

 

This was the best way to continue to stand in the gap and lift up at- risk youth in 2020. Chicktime San Marcos & Chicktime San Antonio became one on Saturday!! Please read the reflections of Donnette Tyler ( Chicktime co-leader of Chicktime San Antonio)  as she share our experience with the next generation of world changers. YES! That’s right God will always use the ones the world 🌎 tend to count out to make the most impact. I am one of many ….. #dontstopupliftingothersin2020

Chicktime San Antonio’s January 2020 workshop was all kind of WOW!!
Thank you to our workshop leader, Lora Williams, managing leader of our sister chapter, Chicktime San Marcos, for traveling to lead our first workshop of the year.
Thank you for bringing laughter, but also truth and hope in your skit via your character ” Sally Roe” to the teen girls at Boysville that we are blessed to spend time with every month. We loved the “Law and Order” theme of the skit using volunteers as the judge(God) and prosecuting attorney (world) to hear the case of young Sally Roe giving up on life because of all the bad decisions she made and hard times she had to endure…. but using the girls to be the Jurors and concluding that if God can forgive they can forgive too was just the very reason why we show up month to month! These broken, but beautiful girls need to hear the very message that you intentionally shared with them! God loves you NO matter what!! Thank you for the special yarn
game too. We believe giving the girls 4 different pieces of colored yarn to represent broken relationships, experiences ( good and bad), things we can’t forgive about ourselves, and our relationship with God to form a web ( representing our life without God) was such a powerful visual. A visual of what our life looks like when we don’t have God in our life to give us clarity to get through the web of life. The visual was stronger when volunteers cut the web~ piece by piece~ to make room for the white yarn (God) to help us find the clarity and peace found only in HIM. Thank you for wrapping up our time together by sharing your testimony that paralleled “Sally Roe’s” life. The journey that started much like the girls who live at Boysville, but that made it through the “web” because of Jesus Christ and is living out HIS purpose in a very courageous way! Thank you for singing and praying with the girls too.

Vision Boards! - ms-jackson

December Update:

Our Christmas event was incredibly successful due to the love and commitment of our Ladies. Their faithfulness, month after month is truly inspiring. Every month is amazing but this December was definitely over the top. Of course, we had the usual feast, as well as, a beautiful and delicious Birthday Cake decorated to celebrate Jesus’ birthday. We sang Happy Birthday to our Savior and Lord. One of our ladies covered bags of chips to look like they were professionally created to tell the salvation story. She also created beautifully printed name tags for our entire Chicktime group. That was very sweet. Another lady outdid us all by creating 8 different candy making stations, all beautifully wrapped in Christmas paper. So with our 32 girls each station of 4 girls created enough candy to fill a box for each girl to save for later. Some of the girls exchanged with others to try different tasty candies. Each girl also received a beautiful wrapped
Christmas present; it was a red apron which they could wear while they making their candies. The girls thoroughly enjoyed making and tasting the candy! The staff even commented on how much they were enjoying it. After that each girl was given 2 pairs of earrings which they chose themselves from a large variety of earrings. Even the staff and the Chicktime ladies got to choose 2 pairs of earrings. It was a most successful time with the girls and I believe they truly felt our love for them and enjoyed a wonderfully happy Christmas celebration!

The piñata was a TOTAL hit and they loved their candy bags.
The families were able to take part in a free garage sale with TONS of donated clothing…
Each family received a goodie bag with shampoo and conditioner, razors and other goodies.
All this was great BUT the lives that were touched
The love that we shared
The smiles and giggles from the kids as Santa came in the room
Well that THAT was all GOD.

We at Chicktime are so very grateful that we are allowed to be His hands and feet.
We would love to thank ALL of the people who donated not only to this event but to All the events throughout the year.
We could NOT do this without you!!

To my family who always comes through to help the kids

To all of you thank you!

Dream Board Making! - ca-sandiego

December Update:

We had an amazing Christmas celebration! Sharing traditions with our girls brightened their day and started off their Christmas season with joy and cheer. Decorating hot coco ornaments, playing a rendition of Christmas gift exchange, a raffle and inspiring gifts for the girls tangibly blessed the girls but their spirits were lifted up through connecting and sharing our love and joy. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas.

We are looking forward to the New year with our Vision board workshop in January.

A big thank you to Ms. Zamora with King High School Student Council for providing extra gifts for the boys too! Our volunteers came through for us again and helped the girls decorate the Christmas tree with Balls decorated with paint and glitter. The saran wrap balls were a hit too!

Self Love! - tx-sanantonio

December Update:

Have you ever been somewhere or experienced something that simply takes your breath away? Well that is exactly what happened to the Chicktime San Antonio Volunteers that came out to our December gathering.
Every year we are invited to our Charity Parter, Boysville Children’s Home Christmas Pageant. We are invited because it is their way to thank all of their volunteers collectively ~to include Chicktime San Antonio! This year as expected, the Pageant was so special. Each cottage performed a song, a skit, or played an instrument for the crowd. We may be a little bias, but we believe the cottage where “our girls” live was the best performance of the afternoon. Before “our girls” performed, they grabbed a microphone and thanked Boysville for giving them a place to live and caring for them when no one else would. Not a dry eye in the room and I’m pretty sure our hearts skipped a beat! Then the girls did a liturgical dance to Laura Dangle’s hit Christian Contemporary song, ~ You Say! If you have never heard the words please listen to them today and breathe them in for yourself and pray with us that the girls etch every word of the song in their heart.
The Administration, staff, and especilly children put so much time and love into the pageant that it is truly magical. It is our hope that one year you will join us and we promise you will leave there and know why there is Chicktime!

After the pageant, we continued with tradition and went to the girls cottage/home where the houseparents and girls treated us to tamales, fruit, veggie tray and spinach dip, and other chips and dips! It is such an honor to be invited to their home and break bread with them in such an intimate way. Our monthly workshops and activities are beautiful and meaningful, but this sacred and special time allows us to see the girls in a different way and us to them as well. After we ate and visited, we sat around their Christmas tree and played Santa. Because of very generous donations from some of our wonderful Chicktime Volunteers, we were able to buy the girls some special gifts on their wish lists. Their excitement and gratitude was overwhelming and a few times the girls were even taken back with tears which of course made us cry! We were also able to give the houseparents, relief houseparent, volunteer coordinator, and recreational specialist gift cards for their amazing work they do at Boysville and making our partnership with them so easy!

We are so grateful for each of you who made the gift exchange possible. We are also grateful for those of you who showed up and spent the afternoon with us. We are 100 percent sure that we are investing in the life of these girls and because of Chicktime they will always know they have women who are routing for them and will always know they matter!
Joyfully and With Lots of Love,
Annette, Donnette, Letty
Chicktime San Antonio Leadership Team

December Update:

Chicktime Detroit is such a special group of ladies serving others with a special kind of LOVE! Gods LOVE! What an immeasurably more kind of gift all year! It is always amazing to be able to help shine the light and love of Jesus Christ into the lives of the girls at Vista Maria. December,

Miss Betty shares the real meaning of CHRISTmas by reading the story of the birth of Jesus interactively with them. One of the girls always blesses us to open our event in prayer and this year we all brought a potluck dinner for them to have a home-cooked meal! God always graciously helps us provide a gift full of goodies for each of the girls! They are so joy-filled and thankful and we know we are so blessed to see them experience the love of God through these times! What an honor it is for us to be used like this year after year!

Thank you & Merry Christmas my precious Chicktime sisters! Merry Christmas to the precious Vista Maria girls!

It’s beginning to look—and feel—a lot like Christmas!

So thankful to the employees at First National Bank of SC and many others

Special thanks to Marilyn Clark for making the kids stockings.

Chicktime Tulsa Volunteers~
It’s been a while…but we are back!!! Have you missed us? We have missed you! We experienced some set backs when part of leadership team moved to Texas ( xoxox’s Madison and Brooke) and when we could no longer serve at Pearls Home! Since that time we have actively been looking for a new place to serve and we are excited to announce we found a new Charity Partner! More details coming soon so please stay tuned. We also have a new addition to our Chicktime Tulsa Leadership team~ Welcome Leiah!

We hope you will make plans to join us in the new year. Together we can make a difference!

Christmas Party Time! - tx-canyonlake

November Update:

November Chicktime was amazing. We had three great workshops for the girls at New Life Children’s Center. The girls made thank you cards for Operation: Military Matters. We sent the cards to that organization which will send the cards to deployed military in care packages. The snack station was another big hit with fun fall snacks.

And the activities in the gym were a lot of fun. We hope you will join us next month for our annual Christmas party for the girls.

Exciting Changes!! - tx-humble

Chapter Update~

Chicktime Humble has found a new Charity Partner and we can’t wait to serve there!

With the damage that was done to Family Time form the tropical storm, Imelda and the unknown of when they will be back and running we decided to find a new place to serve in the meantime.

It is our hope that if they get things together again and can welcome volunteers back,  a new Leadership team will emerge to go back there. Could that be you?

Contact Sandra if it is and she can help you process this!

Christmas Wishes! - tx-sanantonio

November Update:

Our November workshop focused on gratitude. The girls decorated chalkboards with paint, antique buttons and permanent markers. We asked them to make the statement
“I am grateful for”….. permanent on the chalkboard with either paint or permeant marker and everyday with chalk change what they are grateful for!


As the girls were doing this activity we went around the room to share what each of us is grateful for and helped the girls realize that even in the darkest times there is always a reason to be grateful.

This activity spilled over to writing grateful cards to special people who have impacted us. The girls really liked this activity and it seemed therapeutic and a way to show how grateful and thankful they are to the people who have loved and encouraged them along way. We had a blessing mix bar where the girls grabbed a plastic goodie bag and scooped in various ingredients that together made the mix. They used a precut ribbon to tie the bag shut with instructions on what each ingredient meant. The girls made one for themselves and one to share with someone special.

Fresh fruit with chocolate dipping sauce and cookies filled our tummies and was the perfect Saturday workshop treat. We circled up and held hands for our closing prayer…a workshop tradition!


Chicktime San Antonio remains grateful for the opportunity to serve at Boysville and be part of the journey in the teen girls who live there.
Happy Thanksgiving to all our volunteers who we are also VERY grateful for!

Posada Time! - tx-galveston

November Update:

Chicktime had an amazing time on Saturday helping the children and their families decorate the family crisis center for Christmas…
It’s never too early right???

We began our workshop with prayer and a reminder to the moms at the shelter that God loves them that this stage in their lives is not who they are. We reminded them that God means to prosper them and love them.

The children enjoyed cookies and donuts and hot chocolate.
They loved their kid sized trees soo much.
Thank you to everyone who donated their time and their resources to make this day possible.

Cooking Class! - ms-jackson

November Update:

We love the encouragement that the parable about the Pearl of Great Price brings to us.

….And we particularly love giving the girls a pearl necklace to remind them of their great worth to Jesus. Sunday we opened a real oyster loaded with 27 earls. The girls loved seeing the pearls inside and almost all of them got to have one.

The formation of the pearls parallels their lives. It is a very meaningful teaching.

After that they all got a single fresh water pearl necklace, to remind them that they are so vulnerable.

Jesus, gave all to redeem them.

Our Chicktime Ladies, after serving a feast they prepared, worked hard to fit the necklace perfectly to every girl. Our team is amazing and so deeply appreciated.
