Our church just started supporting a local chapter of YoungLives, a branch of YoungLife which ministers to and mentors teen moms. Tonight I get to help put a dinner on for the girls, their kiddos, and the mentors -- I am so excited and (I don't know why, but) nervous, too! We are doing the theme "Far Away Friday" in hopes that the girls will have a few fancy-free hours where they can just relax and enjoy time together while our awesome volunteers are watching their kids.
I found this great article about YoungLives written by our local paper on another chapter in our area, so take a look and learn more about it! Youth ministry is always on our hearts (Nate's & mine), so I am looking forward to the opportunity to experience and take part in this aspect of it.
Happy Friday & thanks for stopping by!
