Virtue

June 20, 2015

Hello Virtue Ladies,

The other day I heard someone say, “Strong is the new pretty.” I’d like to change it up and say,“Virtue is the new pretty.” Girls are so blasted with different definitions of what pretty looks like.

How would you define “pretty”?

Pretty is . . .

The color pink?

The right size body?

The perfect shade of lipstick?

It is possible for a girl to pursue all of this and still feel unsure, unwanted. What does virtue look like? Is it a soft focus photograph of a girl in a field twirling, arms outstretched, face photoshopped to perfection? I challenge you to take a walk through the pages of the Bible and study the diversity. I guarantee the stories are about as countercultural as you can get. Some were naturally athletic, outspoken, fearless, devout, hardworking, thoughtful. Others were social outcasts, mess-ups, rejected, tormented, desperate. But they were loved and unforgotten. And it is love that transformed them into life givers, kingdom builders.

What we need in the midst of the crazy, mind-numbing message being thrown at us is to know the love of a Heavenly Father. A love which teaches us a way to see ourselves, a new way to be pretty. A perspective that is shaped and informed by the Word of God.

This is what the Girl Talk Summer Series is all about! Bringing girls in touch with our Father God who created us and understands our complexities. Come join us and make new friends who believe in a definition of pretty that transcends all magazine trends of what’s hot/what’s not.

You are invited to these three life-changing evenings, full of phenomenal music and speakers who will bring us good news. It is going to be amazing, so don’t miss this opportunity!

Week 1: We will look at the purpose and power of friendship, along with phenomenal music and a powerful interview featuring Lacey Sturm.

Week 2: Sally Lloyd-Jones. This NY Times best-selling author and speaker will share her unique gift of bringing the gospel to every age, and maybe even captivate us by reading from some of her books!Week

3: Elyse Fitzpatrick. Author, speaker . . . what can I say, I love this lady! She will deliver the good news for weary women. Trust me she has the “goods”, serves it straight up, no cutesy stories, no fluff. Bring your Bible and notebooks ’cause you will want to take notes!
