She Does Her Best And Lets God Do The Rest

The world tells our girls to obsess over their effort, that somehow their worth is tied to their work. But our girls will know better. ⠀ They will not live under the constant pressure to perform.

Under His Wings, She Will Find Her Refuge

  Culture tells girls that they should be able to handle life's challenges alone and without anyone's help.

3 Reminders About Real Beauty

She doesn’t stand at the mirror, strategically dabbing concealer over the spots on the sections of her face that are darker than others.
