October Update:

The moms from Dayton Urban Young Life-Teen Mom Program were blessed by Chicktime Dayton workshop leader, Amber Evans. Amber led another workshop on self-care entitled “Empowerment”~ and she shared tips to keep us empowered and safe. This perspective of self defense and being mindful of our surroundings for safety in and out of the home was very inspiring.

The pictures posted are part of a video Amber created equipped with powerful music and empowerment tips that the young moms and all present enjoyed discussing.

September Update:

Super Mega Special shout out to Amber Evans, who led Chicktime Dayton’s workshop & helped us show up strong for our partner, Dayton Urban Young Lives – Teen Moms Program today!! 📣📣
Amber taught the importance of self-care, reminding us all that self care is not selfish, especially when you’re caring for others. The moms followed along in the workbooks Amber created for them!! It was so exciting watching the moms take notes & really soak in what Amber shared!!! 🙌🏽
Our charity partner is excited for Amber’s Part 2 of the Self-Care Workshop. 🙌🏽
I am so excited as well & truly thankful for the planning, researching & extremely organized work & successful workshop delivery by Ms. Amber!!! The moms appreciated it too!!!

August Update:

What a jammed packed discussion on our Zoom Call with our charity partner, Dayton Urban Young Life~ Teen Mom Program last night. We talked about breastfeeding following a question on that specific topic. Also, the question of nursing while working was answered in detail with solutions and experience from. Discussed social distancing and community resources available if facing hardships for day to day survival.
Isn’t this wonderful? So much support and love for the teen moms is what we love about our partnership with DUYL-Teen Mom Program. Even during Covid there are ways you can help us and of course post Covid we hope you will join our mission!

July Update:

Our July Zoom meeting was similar to the previous & trying to help the young moms get to know us. We were able to find out that the moms would like to learn more on the topic of constructive communication & that came out through asking about topics they already know they’d like to learn more about. We have one more Zoom meeting planned for this month and we will supply subway dinner to the girls!
We know this kind of workshop is not ideal for volunteers to join us, but one day we will need you. Our face to face workshops will look very different so please stay tuned.

Hi Everyone! While I’m extremely excited to serve as Co-Leader, the unexpected loss of our friend and Co-Leader Jessica, is still difficult. I’m extremely thankful to have volunteered at the last workshop, with Jessica. You see, I was quite tired that Friday afternoon and I almost did not go. However, it just wasn’t sitting well with me to sit that workshop out. I spent more time noticing that I should get up and go, instead of starting the nap I thought I wanted to take. I am so thankful that I got back up and went to that workshop. I did not know that would be the last time I would see Jessica.

It was such a blessing to hear that Jessica enjoyed the workshop! I enjoyed it was well! We were decorating journals with our participants and I remember thinking how wonderful it was that Jessica not only had a heart to serve others and drove a very long way to do so, but she also brought her kids to each workshop! They always interact so well with our participants.

I remember also thinking how each of her 3 kids are actual bundles of love!! Kelsie is so much fun to talk and laugh with! And, as I was also decorating a journal, Jessica’s 2 little guys were sitting next to me & encouraging me with “good job, good job” while I doodled! 😄 It was the cutest and sweetest thing of that day…especially since my drawing truly were doodles! Yet, they were cheering me on! 🤗

So I’m thankful for that very fond memory of being able to have spent time with Jessica, truly not knowing how special that afternoon would end up being. I’m also thankful to have listened to the promptings to go, so that I wouldn’t miss that opportunity.

I look forward to serving with Morgan and building our Dayton Chapter!! We welcome your support, prayers and positive encouragement as we work together to find a new charity partner and reach out to those who need us most!! – ❤️

We had a great event tonight. It was a really fun event and we had them enjoying the activity and laughing for a couple hours at least! We made pin wheels and paper flowers tonight.
