August Update:

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.

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!🌸

April Update:

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.
