May Update

Hard to put into words the experience we’ve had today.
We took a leap and expanded into a third cottage at Children’s Home Network and ran three different events in each.

Maternity & Mommy and Me photo shoots for the teen mom cottage, 
complete with professional hair, make up, styling and photographers. 
These ladies looked stunning and we are so touched to be a part of creating a lifetime memory for them. 
Photographers: Kendall Gantous Photography, MShirley Photography, and Susanna Martinez Photography.

Inspirational posters with the teen girls and potted plant projects with the little kiddos.
So much going on today that we are so grateful to be a part of.
We couldn’t have done it without our amazing volunteers and those that donated their time and skills today!
So a big THANK YOU to all of you! ❤️

Thanks to everyone who came out and did some super fun arts and crafts today!

May Update

WOW!!! Chicktime showed up and showed out for May’s Event.
This month the girls were introduced to Meditation.
The two techniques we focused on was MINDFULNESS
(being in the moment) and BREATHING.
There was GREAT participation in the exercises that were demonstrated.
Most of the girls mentioned that these techniques
would be helpful in relieving stress and anxiety.
Chicktime focused on changing their stress to a smile 
😊
and we were successful in doing so.
After the meditation session, the girls were surprised
with an ICE CREAM Social with lots of toppings.
I want to thank you to all my volunteers for making this a great and memorable event.

May Update

We had a wonderful time coloring pictures indoors
and then we took the party outside to play on the jungle gym.
We winded it down with

Come out and join us for our next workshop in June

May Update:

What is more beautiful than flowers? Janet provided a gorgeous selection for the girls to arrange into stunning bouquets.

The girls not only left with a beautiful arrangement, but a connection. It was such a special thing to witness the love flowing through our own passions of creating beauty and showing the girls how to assemble their flowers.

Happiness and joy radiated in the room and left with the girls.

It is what Chicktime San Diego aims to do; provide the experience of connection, love, joy, grace and peace through sharing our passions.

Please come join us next month for succulent plant decorations. We would love to have you there!

May Update:

April showers, bring May flowers, right?? Well we’ve had plenty of showers here in stl lately—and tonight at Chicktime, we dabbled with some flowers of our own.

In honor of spring and Mother’s Day—We had sub sandwiches, fruit, guacamole, and cupcakes! We painted our own little planters and planted some pretty flowers too!

We met a new friend also, Ms. Jenny. She jumped right in with the creative crafty stuff and baby snuggles! Great to have new volunteers with us! 

Thanks to our group leader this week and our returning chicks for all the fun tonight!! Check us out sometime!! We are a ton of fun. 🤩

May Update:

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!🌸

May Update:

Sadly….our Charity Partner had to cancel our May workshop! There was just too much going on and it was impossible to get the kids to us! We are still working out the kinks, but the wonderful thing is….we both have the kids best interest at heart so we will keep coordinating and working together!

April Update:

Chicktime Austin Volunteers Rock!

With their help, Our April event was an amazing experience!

Teaching the girls the importance of journaling…so humbling.

Come join us next month!

Chicktime SM Kick off #NOFILTER mini conference was awesome. There is something about being in the midst of the students here at Gary…. As we all looked in a mirror honestly writing what we see. Some young ladies wrote resentment, anger, the consequences of my past experiences, pain, doubt, misunderstood, not worthy of anything good & so much more…

I’m wondering as one picture reflects do we have their backs? Will we invest in the next generation of future women leaders that are feeling like they don’t deserve to LIVE FULLY?
We have something to offer that can’t be priced ( Our story of Hope).

The last part of the mirror exercise is understanding how Christ erases the residue of our past. There is so much inside of you & your past is an experience it’s ( IT’s NOT WHO YOU ARE).

Three young ladies gave their hearts to God last night. We CELEBRATE & WE ARE GRATEFUL that all can come to God ….

April Update:

Spending time with our girls at St. Pj’s. is our favorite thing to do on a Saturday morning.

We made slime…..FUN!

We had an amazing time at the family crisis center !!
The smiles were worth everything!!!
God came through in a big big way!

Easter was not about the bunny but about the man who died on the cross Bc He loves them!!

We are still looking for volunteers
and event leaders, inbox me in you’re interested in coming out and helping me bring smiles to these wonderful kids.

Chicktime seemed to FLY by today!

It was as if we fell down a 🐰rabbit hole🐰 to a world where our imagination ran wild for a couple of hours! We started our day off with a little tea party full of flowers, tea cups, sandwiches, and yummy dessert.

♟️Thank you, Ms. Christine for providing the yummy lunch!♟️

Next, we read Alice In Wonderland in 30 seconds (well, the fold out book said 30 seconds but we think it took longer LOL) and we attempted to crack riddles that were clearly written by the 🎩Mad Hatter🎩 because none of us could figure them out!

Finally, we finished our final afternoon with the ABCH kids off by making mini top hats that even the ❤️Red Queen❤️ would approve of! These kids are so incredibly artistic and the way they use their imagination is fascinating to watch!

Thank you to our volunteers who came today because we certainly could not do this without Y.O.U! We will see you in June! We are taking May off.

April Update:

Chicktime Atlanta’s Praise Event was a success! We really enjoyed bringing
something new  and engaging to our charity partner!
It was very inspirational to say the least.
The girls stated praise dance can help them with anger management in the future
and that they learned a different way to give God praise.
They also enjoyed the Easter coloring sheet and the cross word puzzle.
Big thanks to the Chicktime Atlanta Volunteers and a special thanks to Ms. Maoula,

Today six Chicktime San Antonio volunteers gathered in a common gymnasium and transformed it to a safe, encouraging and fun space.

Eleven girls who come from very broken places were greeted with open and loving arms and hearts!

Merrilee Berger, (one of Chicktime Bulverde’s chapter leaders) was our workshop leader and taught us how to decorate t-shirts ( graffiti style) with stencils, permanent markers and rubbing alcohol.

Our time together allowed us to visit, listen/sing Contemporary Christian music, talk about the real reason of the Easter Season, and eat!!

Chicktime San Antonio is determined to help these beautiful girls accept the unbelievable simple exchange of grace. Thats why we show up month after month. We want them to know HIS peace.

We had an amazing time with the girls at Bokenkamp today.

They colored in their very own coloring books and enjoyed snacks and drinks generously donated by H-E-B. We then went outside for the Easter Egg Hunt and the girls cracked cascarones on eachother! They had an absolute blast and we volunteers just LOVED seeing them have a good time! It was such a blessing to see and touched our hearts so much ♡

Another great thing that happened today was that we were also able to celebrate with the boys from Bokenkamp to participate in their very own celebration – they cracked cascarones and enjoyed bags of candy generously donated by Beth and her co-workers!

Thanks to all our volunteers for helping us make today special! Here are some pics for you to enjoy. God bless each and everyone during the Easter Season and Holy Week.

Thank you Jesus for the gift of ever lasting life !!

April Update:

Our April workshop was such an amazing event.

Making tissue paper flowers brightened up our days and opened our souls to the beauty around us and that is inside of us.. They came out absolutely beautiful and were so therapeutic for the girls to make. No matter what you are going through there is always room to blossom out of a bad situation or feeling.

We can transfer our unfavorable circumstances into choices of making the beauty out of ashes through renewing our minds in the word to align with God’s truth of truly who he made you to be and the life he has for you to live.

Please come join us next month for the art of flower arrangement and share your love with the girls at Casa de Amparo.

We can’t wait to see you then!

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.

Mini conference ~ #nofilter
We live in a time when we encourage the young generation to hide their voice, feelings, & perspectives. Snapchat filters are the most common way to post a pic hiding our true beauty with flaws in all. We have forgotten that our experiences connect us. Simply because we all have experienced pain and struggle in some way. The enemy wants us to believe we are alone so we filter our story and share what we think others want to hear. Chicktime San Marcos at Gary is a safe place to remove the filter and be REAL. BE YOU! YOU ARE ORIGINAL! I can’t wait to share this message to the next GENERATION who will be comfortable with being who they are with #NOFILTER

 Chicktime Mesa ordered  overnight bags from Together We Rise. Managing Leader, Stacey,  then asked  her work group  decorate them during our annual team meeting last week.

What an amazing day at today’s workshop! 

Check out all the beautiful hair brushes these talented girls made! They fell in love with their designs and we enjoyed hearing the girls rave about them. Talk about contentment! One little girl said that they were going to cherish it forever and keep it as a reminder of their time at Bokenkamp. Others said that they can’t wait for us to be back because they enjoy Chicktime volunteers and projects.

We may not have had many volunteers today (4 of us only) but we sure brought alot of smiles and were sincerely humbled. Special thanks to H-E-B for all the drinks and treats! Ooooh and Ahhhh at all the beautiful hair brushes ♡.

March Update:

We had a great time during our March event! Carolyn and Michele lead the event by teaching the girls about essential oil‘s. The devotional was great and the girls were able to apply the teaching to their own uniqueness. After they made scented spritzers and lotions with the oil of their choice, Michele asked who needed prayer and we were able to pray for the girls. It was a very special and holy time. I’m sure that we will not know until we get to heaven the impact that our prayers made that day. The food was great, as usual, our ladies outdid themselves. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and fellowship!

March Update:

Chicktime San Antonio 2019 March Workshop was a busy one indeed! We originally had another activity planned that works best for a bigger crowd. When we checked in with our charity partner, Boysville, at the beginning of the week we were told we would only have 3 or 4 girls because of Spring Break. We asked our workshop leaders to come back later in the year to save their special activity when it would be more impactful for the girls. The leadership team took over and planned three craft rotations for the girls to spend their morning working on.

At our first rotation, the girls made a hanging cross out of clothespins. These turned out so beautiful.

They will each get to hang their cross near their own bed.

At our second rotation, the girls made a prayer box. They used scrapbook paper and mod-podge to decorate cross boxes.

The girls were told to grab a piece of paper and write their prayer on it and put it in the box and trust God to work on their behalf.

At the third rotation, the girls made sugar scrubs made with essential oils. They were so excited to make these and to learn about the uses for essential oils. We had popcorn and rice crispy treats for a snack and just enjoyed our time together.

As it turned out, we had 9 girls and a perfect morning. At the end of every workshop we gather in a circle and hold hands and pray. Today was no different. We always open it up for anyone to pray hoping that on any given Chicktime Saturday one of the girls would volunteer! This morning was that day. Such a sweet and gracious prayer led by one of the teens. We can never doubt the impact that our monthly workshops have on these precious girls. We are decorating t-shirts next month. Join us. We will be meeting the second Saturday in April due to the Easter Holiday.

March Update:

We had so much fun painting picture frames and sun catchers with our girls at Cornerstones of Care -Ozanam Campus Sat Morning!
