graceful {for young women}

For the good test taker and the strict list maker. For the rule follower, the fear wallower, the messy, and the misunderstood. For the self-critic, the silent judge, and the girl who feels invisible.

For the girl who is tired of trying and the one afraid to fail.

Graceful encourages the teen girl to let go of the try hard life and instead remember that because God is graceful, she is accepted, seen, and loved.

“Graceful made me think about how much I want to be valued by other people. I realized that I don’t need to do anything to be important because God made me in His image, and I have value because of Him.”

Kylie Jones, senior

“Emily will take girls to that place where not only will they start to tear down walls of guilt, insecurity, and self-doubt, but they will also discover a deeper love for Jesus Christ, their Creator and Savior, whose hands are strong enough to carry them through every self-loathing thought.”

Sarah Nutter, youth leader
