The girls of New Life were able to experience the concept of “Daring Greatly” presented by Dawn Hedgepeth and Michelli Ramon during our October Chicktime event. It was an emotional experience for many of the girls and volunteers as we dove into the ideas of embracing vulnerability, and understanding the impact of shame. During the sessions Dawn and Michelli shared their own personal experiences as they educated us on how to use our vulnerability and shame to grow emotionally to a place of worthiness and to know “I am enough”.
Carolyn and Liz then led “Art for the Heart” where we searched through magazines and cut or tore out pictures that grabbed our attention or somehow spoke to us which we then used to create our individual collages expressing who we are, what we are feeling or just simply things we like. The girls and volunteers seemed to really enjoy this form of self-expression.
Special thanks to our leaders this month for such inspirational stations that left us knowing we are enough.
