The Importance of Taking Time To Celebrate


Every Monday night I open my home and disciple 4 wonderful middle school girls. They are my discipleship girls (DG girls) and it has been my privilege to be their discipleship leader for the last two years. This past April I found out their middle school was not having a graduation ceremony for their class. I don’t know about you but I was bothered when I found out the news and so I decided to have a graduation ceremony for them and their families at my home. My purpose for having the graduation ceremony was to celebrate each girl individually and have the opportunity to speak words of encouragement and blessing over them….praying that God would use this evening to bless them and encourage them in the years to come.

Join me today over at The Better Mom where I share about that special night……and the words God gave me to speak over them!

What do you wish you were told at that age?


Love God Greatly!

  1. Wow! I read the other post and this was a great idea! I would love to know more about how you disciple these girls. When You meet with them, what does that look like? How did you choose these girls? Etc. I have always said that when I was growing up I had lots of opportunities to accept Christ but few opportunities to be discipled! More on this please!

  2. Ohhh thanks for commenting, DL! I’ve actually gotten quite a few emails wanting to know more details on what material I use, how long etc…..I’m planning on writing about it more in the coming weeks after the Proverbs 31 study. :) Thanks so much for your interest! :)

    Love God Greatly!

  3. That is such a wonderful way to reach out to not only those middle school girls, but also to others as well. Those words of encouragement and blessings will have such an inpact on their lives as they move forward. God bless you and Thank you so much for opening your doors for others, the encouragement you bring, and for setting a christian example.

  4. You asked what I wish I would have known at that age;

    I wished I would have known that life wasn’t all about me.
    I wished I would have known how loved I was.
    I wished I would have known that an eating disorder was a symptom of a problem, not the problem itself.
    I wish I would have known the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in a way that would forever change me…the way I do now.
    I wish I would have known that I didn’t know it all!

  5. Thanks for this Angela, I have a 15 yr old who has just left homeschooling and has joined a Christian school to complete her last 3 yrs. What a joke, I have been shocked at what is acceptable and her faith has been challenged at every corner! I have really found a need to create a small group to disciple these young ladies but have battled with a way to word it or which angle to view it from. Discipleship Girls is a wonderful angle – so hope you don’t mind if I use it. One of the ideas I’m wanting to do is to slightly adjust the Proverbs 31 study we doing and use that with them. Exciting times ahead. Thanks for the encouragement.
