Chicktime Bulverde is thankful for Sigma Delta Lambda Sorority from Texas A&M Univeristy – San Antonio for coming out and spending part of their weekend to lead our February workshop. If you are interested in volunteering with Chicktime Bulverde, the 3rd Saturday of every month please join and impact the life of a child!
Today was indeed very special for us all. The residents of Bokenkamp presented Chicktime volunteers with a beautiful tree made of buttons because they were so grateful for their Christmas party in December and for us just choosing to come out to the facility to do fun things with them. This made our hearts move in so many ways. Thank you girls, we love it and will display it proudly ♡.
The girls had a fun morning decorating their hearts and truly put a lot of love into it.
Thank you to all of our volunteers for giving of your precious time to make these girls feel special. We hope to see all of you come out again. A huge THANK YOU to H-E-B for all the drinks and snacks.
Enjoy the pictures and look forward to next months project! God Bless each and everyone ♡♡♡.
💕 Chicktime yesterday was so much fun! 💕
Friendship love was in the air during our workshop this month and first time workshop leaders, Jacque and Hannah really owned the opportunity to give of themselves and their time – not only to the young ladies of New Beginnings but to the chapter.
Thank you everyone who attended and welcome Barbara, our newest volunteer! ❤️
We hope you’ll join us next month for our self-care 101 experience. 💅 💄 🛁
Had an amazing first workshop! Our workshop leader shared her love of Ballet Folklorico! Thanks Kimberly Simpson for assisting!
If you are reading this please and in the Austin area~ we are in need of volunteers! Please join us!
What a beautiful and tasty morning we had today! Thanks to Kelly and Kat for bringing their passion to bake.
The girls didn’t hesitate at all to roll up their sleeves, flour up, mix, knead and spread to make cinnamon rolls from scratch.
As they patiently waited first for the yeast to rise, and then for the rolls to bake, they shared laughs as they acted out while playing ‘heads up’.
It warmed our ♥️ when the girls asked to pray before savoring their creation, and when they all asked for Chicktime shirts which they promise to wear on Chicktime Saturdays. We always leave with our spiritual tanks fuller, our hearts overflowing and today our tummies full and happy with an extra helping of cinnamon and sugar!
Another blessed day spending time with my babies at the #alabamabaptistchildrenshome 🏡
Unfortunately, the flu caused a last minute change of plans to what we had lined up for the kids. We all pray that Mrs. Anna, Miss Savannah, and Mrs. Ashley get well soon! 🙏🏼 In celebration of Valentine’s Day this week, the kids showed some love and constructed get well cards for a very special young girl battling cancer. The kids were so engaged in listening to this child’s story and eager to showcase their support.
My heart was overjoyed at the participation in this project for one VERY big reason: these children have been through some difficult life circumstances themselves and despite it all, they understood that this little girl needs to be shown love and support now more so than ever! ❤️
These babies have the faith of a mustard seed and I am elated that I was able to bear witness to the love that overflowed today! I challenge you, my reader, to do a simple act of love and kindness for someone over the next few days. Be the change that you wish to see in the world! Love matters. Kindness matters. Always.
Joyfully, Ranah 💕

Great makeup class for the girls and some basketball for the guys!
Love spending time with these kids!!
Thankful for sweet friends that make such awesome donations
for Chicktime Moncks Corner and the Callen-Lacey Home for Children! So blessed!
We had a great time at our February workshop! We made cute bullet journals,
ate cookies, and introduced the Chicktime Suggestion Box!
Listening to what the girls want to do is so important,
so we made a suggestion box so we can plan even more awesome events in the future!
We are excited to announce that Chicktime Marietta will begin serving the precious children and staff of Angel House very soon! We have completely fallen in ❤️ with Angel House and we know you will too!
Chicktime Volunteers are so special!
They prepare for craft time….
They role model….
They love and are lovable…
They help create and teach….
They share their gifts and resources….
They are what make Chicktime Workshops so special!!
Lovebirds project with the kids at SafeHaven of Tarrant County. All you need is love
We were all about positive affirmations, beautiful flowers, sweet treats, and delicious crepes this event! It was a time of reflection for loving yourself and others how God loves us all. There is no comparison to how much God loves us, but to strive to liberate from our brokenness and love like he does was what we shared with the girls at Casa.
As mother Theresa said, …Let know one ever come to you leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, and kindness in your warm greeting.” This is how we aim to serve to show these girls the love from God. I know we all fall short of this at times of anger, frustration, and pain. These girls know this place oh too well, but I pray for their freedom in Christ and for all of us to bring our burdens, sins, and past hurts, so we can be healed to forgive, love fully, and brake the generational curses that linger in our lineages.
Checking our hearts regularly allows us to be the light God calls us to be. <3 We welcome any ladies who want to come share their light next month at our next Groovy event in March!
We don’t know what makes our Chicktime workshops more incredible…the babies?
and more crafts…
or the laughs, fun and love!
Our time together is special… join the movement!
Valentine Fun was YUMMY too!
Our workshop was so SWEET!
Hope to see you next month!
Love was in the air at our February workshop!

Thank you Sharde’ for leading such an amazing creative writing workshop!
It was fun…..
And so therpeutic!
The workshops in February were so much fun! Thanks to Mindy, Michele and Liz for leading the stations this month. Mindy served nachos and called out bingo for the girls.
Michele led the workshop to make mardi gras masks and photo frames.
Liz took pictures of each girl in the photo booth. Thanks to all the volunteers who showed up to play with the girls at New Life Children’s Home. Please join us again next month on March 9th!
So very proud of our workshop leaders today! Katherine, Valerie, Allison, and Madison are the same age as the girls we serve at Krause. I love, love, love their caring hearts, and that they chose to spend their Saturday sharing a fun activity with girls less fortunate than themselves.
And making friendship bracelets was a wonderful way to engage the girls while chatting and creating!
We were also blessed by all of the volunteers who showed up and showed love! We had an amazing 17 volunteers today, not counting the Chicktime leaders!!! You ladies are the best! We can’t do Chicktime without our incredible volunteers. I hope you continue to come and show your love to Krause Children’s Center.
But my bigger dream is that we have enough support to eventually multiply into serving additional homes in the Houston area. If you believe in what we are accomplishing through Chicktime, and it is on your heart to take a more active role, send us a PM here, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how.
There are so many more needs in the Houston area to be met through your love and generous spirits.
Sending our Valentines love to you all!
Sandi, Bee, and Maria ❤️🥰❤️
Our first workshop is in the books….
We discovered a few things….
All you need is LOVE, sugar cookies and lots of chocolate!
And we learned that it is so much fun partnering up and volunteering with Oklahoma United Methodist Circle of Care and we can’t wait to be back next month.
💕A Valentine to Me💕Vision boards event is my favorite way to kick off the year!!
Inspired and reminded by God today…what a gift it is to love others and to be loved!
No matter who or where we are in life! God calls us to do this as Christians and WOW what an honor and blessing it is to be a blessing!
We played with color swatches at today’s Chicktime event to find what colors work with our skin tone along with doing a skin care class with our lovely activity leader, Margaret Jones.
Thank you Margaret and and all our volunteers for joining us. We had such a blast.
Today’s Valentine Themed Chicktime Conyers Event was a success!
A big Thank you to Gloria and her team, One Heart Ministry, Bicentennial Baptist
Church Ladies, Christy Medlock and all of the volunteers for serving together!
You each played a part in making today extra special for the girls at Elks Aidmore. They were so excited and felt so loved. 💕

What a great encouraging way to remember some very powerful words 🎊
Chicktime San Antonio Central Volunteers are the BEST!
Making friendship bracelets was so fun, but hanging out with the girls is what makes all the Chicktime mornings so perfect!
First workshop of 2019 in the books!!!! We had a great time helping the youth make their vision boards for this year. Thank you to our workshop leader and chapter co-leader Julia for hosting the workshop with all the supplies. We also had the fabulous Meshunda Myles, certified life coach, of @authenticationimpact grace us with her presence. Meshunda spoke to the youth about what S.M.A.R.T Goals are and how to apply them to creating their vision boards. 💕💕
Huge THANK YOU to our Charity Partner Immerse Arkansas for allowing us to hangout with the youth once a month and to our liaison Jake for always hanging with us as well! Stay tuned for the release of our 2019 calendar. @ Immerse Arkansas
Chicktime Saturdays are so fun!
Especially when we have such wonderful volunteers to help us out!
Making keepsake boxes seemed to make the ladies smile!
It most certainly made us smile just being in the midst of spending time with some of God’s most beautiful senior citizens!
Chicktime in January was such fun! The girls and volunteers all helped Lisa Brown, our awesome Director of Volunteers celebrate her Birthday! We had a beautiful cake, presents and lots of fun activities for the girls.
Carol lead the workshop for sewing pillow cases. The girls created bright and cheery pillow cases that they could keep.
Sandra led the girls in a fun game of unwrapping a package with oven mitts and snowman crafts. In the Life Skills building we played games and shared Lisa’s birthday cake.
Yoga night was relaxing and fun!
We all got a great workout too!
We can’t wait for next month to have just as much fun!
We had an early Valentine’s Day Party since we were going to miss the actual date next month. The dinner plates were full of red hearts ♥️ and the food was delicious. We had a feast for Queens! After the food and fellowship time we made our own valentines. Each girl wrapped two toilet paper rolls in shining red and white paper and filled them with candy. I taught on the power of Love, encouragement and giving, so we demonstrated it with our valentines. We included in our package a small strip of paper with encouraging words written by the girls themselves. When it came time to write those words we waited on the Lord for a few minutes of silence to ask what He would have us say. After writing the notes, the girls finished their package and we placed them in a box to mix up. Then the girls each chose two rolls that someone else made. Now came the big decision. Were they going to keep both rolls for themselves? Or keep one and give one away? Or give both away? It was amazing to see how many wanted to save theirs for people they loved. Or if they kept one how excited they were to read the encouraging notes that was just for them. I was moved by how much they took it to their hearts. God is so good, and we are so blessed to have the opportunity to sow into the lives of these little ones. We are so thankful for three new Ladies added to our group, welcome Heather, Nicole and Shelley! What a blessing to have you apart of us!
I want to include a note we received from one of our girls. This was been spoken to us on many occasions. It’s so encouraging!
39 girls came to our workshop and enjoyed putting together their dream boards.
It was such a beautiful thing to watch the girls put so much heart not this….
As always, thank you to HEB for the drinks and snacks.
See you next time!
Chicktime was Wonderfull.
We decorated t-shirts and and the girls were extremely talented!
Our volunteers make it so special.
Our January 2019 workshop was canceled due to winter storm. We are busy planning our February workshop! We hope to see you there!
Workshop was canceled due to winter storm! A foot of snow kept us away, but we are making plans for our February workshop! See you soon!
We are finalizing plans to start back up soon! Thank you for being so patient and always supporting Chicktime!
2019 is off to a great start! We had a great workshop today discussing the importance of self awareness and trusting your gut in the midst of difficult situations. We had some truly meaningful discussions with he girls while we worked on some journaling.
Wow! Wow! Wow! Our January 2019 workshop leader, (Author and Motivational Speaker), Lora Williams, brought down the house at Boysville today!
Lora through skits and open discussion and reflection exercises had us breaking chains that we hold onto and learning to claim who God says we are! The girls learned that forgiveness is for us not the person who hurt us! Powerful! They also learned that there is NO experience in our life that decreases our value and that for every negative word that was ever told to us we can turn it around make it a positive one. Our mirror isn’t broken ladies…it just needs to be cleaned off! We are beautiful and worth it! She had us listen to ~Who You Are: A Message to All Women…Double Powerful! Click the link! Not once but twice! Listen to it three times!! Hear the message and plant it on your heart!
We closed in a circle prayer and had snacks and fellowship.
Praising God that Chicktime San Antonio continues to make a difference in 2019!
Due to new rules and regulations at our current charity partner, we were not able to have a workshop in January. They have suspended groups from volunteering until they figure out how to handle things best. At present, our Chicktime Chapter is looking for a new Charity Partner to serve. Please stay tuned.
“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:20
Chicktime Jan 2019 was nothing short of incredible! A 🌬️gust🌬️of winter blew through Dothan today as we gathered for fellowship with at the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home. We can’t help but to reflect on the last 5 years today and just how thankful we are for our incredible volunteers and workshop leaders who serve faithfully. Our joy lies in the smiles on the faces in these pictures. 💕💕
Today, we celebrated old man ❄️winter❄️as Sally lead our workshop. We made edible snowmen… complete with candy and pretzel body parts. The kids had so much fun mixing their frosting and powdered sugar to make their ⛄… a messy bunch we certainly were today!
Finally, we made ice sculptures in crazy colors and just like the 🌞 does to snow in Alabama, we made them melt in a colorful puddle of water!
Thank you to all of our incredible volunteers! We hope to see YOU next month when the always fabulous Ms. Anna brings her 🧁baking fun🧁 to Chicktime and ABCH! Feb slots WILL fill up in a matter of minutes so don’t delay your RSVP to Ranah!!!! 😍😍
We made dream catchers with the kids of D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s today!💖✌🏼
The kids loved it and were so creative with their designs!
Even the high school boys who at first were acting too cool for the craft ended up participating and making them for others they cared about.
One sweet girl asked if they actually work and I told her I think they do. She was so excited to have good dreams after today.
Another boy, no more than 10 years old, said he was going to hang it up and hoped he wouldn’t have bad dreams for the first time in 3 years.😭
These kids have suffered the worst of abuse and neglect, filling them with trauma and fear. It breaks my heart when I think about it because they are SO amazing.
Committing a couple hours one Saturday a month is easy peezy when it means so much to them. It’s about developing relationships and showing them that they are cared for and worth showing up for.
If you’re interested in volunteering, we are always looking for help with these events and workshops leader to run the events! Please reach out if you’re wanting to help and want to have a low commitment volunteer opportunity that has GREAT reward! ☺️ these kids are light.
Cheers to the weekend and having sweet dreams💕

Had a great time today with the girls! Still looking for workshop leaders and a third co-leader!
Who’s ready to make a difference in someone’s life?? 💕💕
Workshop was canceled due to winter weather!
The threat of impending snow kept us away,
but we are making plans for our February workshop!
See you soon!
Tonight’s event was very personal and we made vision/goal journals. Each page was for the girls to set a goal, whether it was overcoming something stressful next week or a place they’d like to live or travel to in 20 years.I was again humbled and speechless when one girl shared with me that it was hard to imagine a future when this month is filled with court dates, the stress of facing family members who were in charge of her care, who hurt her instead. Questions of who will she live with, where will that be, can she stay in her current school…. I spoke with her one on one almost the entire event and we made goals that were for tomorrow, next week, next month. I believe writing out your goals, hopes, prayers so you can read them and reflect is so powerful. And everyone please pray for this one girl I’m speaking of on Monday, 1/28. God knows who and what for, but she needs all the support she can get.
Thank you to Trina & our Chicktime volunteers for making tonight
a successful night for CYDC!!
The girls had a great time 👩🏻🎨👩🏽🎨👩🎨

Many of us were not only moved by your words but we saw lives changed in that room.
What a way to start the year! We learned how to thrive as women by learning to leave the past behind us as Latoya challenged everyone in that room to ARISE and work towards setting and accomplishing our goals!
Can’t wait to see what next month will bring, Our next workshop is FEBRUARY 9th and we hope to see you all there!

And we’re back…Our first SafeHaven of Tarrant County FUN group of 2019 led by Estelle.
She chose a dream catcher project for the children which was so fitting. Dream catchers are a Native American custom and are considered to be sacred charms that represent protection over children.
How appropriate as that is one of the Chicktime organizations’ tenets; to be protectors over children. The kids had a great time last night. Thank you Estelle for sharing this gift with the children.
Our first event of 2019 was My Amazing Self hosted by Cora Jenkins and Liz Barger!
The girls got to reflect on what they want to be when they grow up and had fun dressing up!
We hope to see everyone throughout this new year!
