New Braunfels News
Our June Workshop took a turn to a more colorful option this evening! Shannon Elizabeth Villearreal was our Workshop leader this month. She is a lover of all things crafty and I KNEW she would bring an amazing workshop to the SJRC Harvey House . We all had a great time tie-dying towels for them to use in the HOT upcoming summer months! Can’t wait to see them next month to see how they all turned out! Thank you Merilee for taking them home to wash for them! It’s always great when you come! For dinner Christine Drotts made an amazing meal! We had chicken, Pasta, Warm brownies and an amazing strawberry dessert!! The girls were amazing and very receptive to us coming out today. It was a smaller group this month but per the usual lots of chaos with lots of laughter! We were thankful that Lori joined us as this month! Hopefully she loved coming as much as we loved having her! We never know how these young mothers felt before we came but God always brings smiles and love by the time Chicktime is over. Our workshop never seem to last long enough but they know we are always back the second Thursday of the month at 5:30. If you’re interested in volunteering with us at please reach out or just show up ! Our next workshop for July 14th will be posted soon!
Food, Fun and Glow Sticks.
We had a blast combining forces with Chicktime Bulverde and having a back to school party together. Both of our chapters now serve on the same campus. Our teen mom program got moved to the Bulverde campus when the 2021 winter storms damaged the New Braunfels property. At present, they will continue to be housed there.
Hope to see you next month.
This evening Chicktime New Braunfels provided a special Mother’s Day Dinner for our young moms and their children. Our girls enjoyed it so much, and each received a sweet Mother’s Day gift as well.
What a blessing to have Erica Sifuentes plan a self-care workshop for our teen moms.
Many times moms are so busy taking care of other things they forget to care for themselves. Erica provided Color Street nail kits in pretty bling boxes and also gave them some Ipsy bags.
And of course a snack is always the best way to finish off the day – Banana splits!!
Lots and Lots of Christmas fun was dropped off at SJRC Texas-New Braunfels. Ugly Sweater and ornament cookie decorating kits, snowman kit, reindeer ornament kit, sticker pages for the kids, and some other kits as well as hot chocolate and Christmas cakes. The young moms and their kids are going to be so busy.
Merry Christmas Chicktime New Braunfels.
Thank you, Becca Ellis, for preparing such a comprehensive workshop teaching our young moms how to meal plan, budget and make wise choices with their foods shopping!
We also shared a delicious meal of two different types of spaghetti and several healthy pasta choices.
Spending time with these young ladies is always a blessing!
We had a blast showing our single moms how to create their own fall-themed decorations.They were all so creative and seemed to really enjoy the workshop!And what kind of fall gathering would it be without chili, cornbread, Fritos, pumpkin-shaped rice crispy treats, and apple cider o such a cold and rainy night.See you next month!
What a fun time tonight with our young moms learning to do Zentangles art form taught by Lindy Hargrave Art!
It looks really intricate but so simple When you follow the steps! I can see how one could get caught up for hours working on something like this!
And of course We can’t get together without food and treats!!
It’s a beautiful day at Chicktime New Braunfels!

God is moving in BIG ways in New Braunfels, Texas !!! Two Chicktime Chapters! Wow!!
Chicktime was so fun today! Alli and her friends from OU came out to SJRC to show the girls some science experiments.
They made apple pie without apples! It was amazing! Who knew?
And then we used fruit to produce electric currents. Alli and friends helped to show the girls how smart they are! The girls really enjoyed getting their scientific minds rolling.
The babies got lots of loving and snuggling. Thank you Alli for thus awesome workshop 💕.
Being a teen mom is hard and scary and life changing , but our girls are strong, courageous and determined! We got to celebrate Mother’s Day with these lovely young ladies Saturday at the Gristmill here in New Braunfels. We all ate yummy food, had lots of laughs and shared our dreams and hopes. I am always amazed at these girls. They certainly bless me every time I am with them. Thank you so much to all of our friends that sponsored a young lady. It was a great day!🌸
Cickitme was amazing! Our sweet girls got to try on prom dresses and pick the perfect one. It was heartwarming to see the pure delight in the girls. Some have never put on a beautiful gown….you could see their face light up and it was magical. We also passed out bibles to all our young ladies. We know God will aways make a way.
Making tie blankets was also part of our evening fun. Everyone needs a soft, cozy blanket. Even better when you make it yourself.
Thank you Chicktime ladies for making our workshop so special.
We had this workshop planned for March, but because our workshop was canceled we will try again! Join us~
SJRC had to cancel our workshop as the girls had another commitment. We will see you next month! Same activity and workshop leader, but make sure you pay attention to the date! We are going to meet on a Thursday!
What a great time we had Saturday at SJRC!!!
We decorated stockings, exchanged socks with a with a white elephant game, pictures with the girls and their baby and ate yummy cookies!
We are so blessed to get to share the Christmas cheer with the beautiful girls
Thank you Chicktime ladies for all you did to make this workshop a special one!
Love was shared at our November workshop!
Thankful for the beautiful story our workshop leader shared with the girls at SJRC this morning.
It was fun to see the personal twists each of these ladies put on their paintings!
Always fun to share yummy snacks….
And fun to have time to get to know them a little better – they are funny, sweet, and creative!
We had such a fun day at October 2018 Chicktime New Braunfels!
We had our dear friend Maggie Lizarraga come out and do facials and make-up for the girls….and they loved it. It was so fun to see the girls embrace their beauty!
Thank you ladies for coming out to love, encourage and help the girls.
See you next month!
We had a successful Chicktime New Braunfels kickoff today at SJRC New Braunfels, thanks to our fearless leader, Deborah Boesch Smith, all the wonderful volunteers and staff as well! What a blessing to get to know some of the young moms who are working hard at being the best they can be for their kids! Moms painted memories with their little one’s hand and footprints and kids got to do their own painting, followed by a healthy snack and visiting! Thank you to everyone who showed up – we are looking forward to many more opportunities to support and encourage these sweet girls.
