Wilted Flowers Grow Beautifully Tour

I previously wrote a post, “God wants You:  Faith, Vision and Visuals”,on what creating vision boards mean to me.  There’s a spiritual journey that can be had in the process of creating vision boards and affirmation cards.  While creating goals and setting standards for you and your future are serious matters, creating vision boards with others makes a creative, fun, and inspiring atmosphere making the process not only beneficial for adults, but kids as well.  And so begins the “Wilted Flowers Grow Beautifully Tour”!

I, along with fellow iCare Global Team Members, Paris Harper and Tahlia Cummings decided to spread God’s messages of love to young ladies throughout our community.  It’s very important for us as women to understand our importance in God’s will.  He created us with purpose, as individuals, He has plans and desires for us to be prosperous in Him.  Therefore, we must understand His love for us, so that we can learn to love and respect ourselves.  We were blessed to experience our first vision board party with seven beautiful, smart, and creative young ladies.  In hopes of planting seeds of love, faith, and forgiveness, we allowed the girls to create topics that they wanted to discuss to encourage dialogue and to assist us on addressing life issues that the younger ladies have.

Also, we wanted to plant seeds of entrepreneurship within girls.  One of my most favorite awards show is Black Girls Rock, where women, young and old from all over the world, are recognized for being positive role models throughout communities everywhere. Listening to the stories of women awarded for community services, nonprofits, outreach, and many other different ways that they are affecting and changing their communities is so motivating and inspiring.  So we want to create an atmosphere for the ladies in our community that’s filled with faith, love, and motivation for them to become who God created them to be.

Here are a few of our blossoming flowers hard at work:

Paris’ message to the ladies:  “I want the girls to continue to meditate on the scripture, “Psalms 139:14, “We are fearfully and wonderfully made.”

  • Sisters, Kennedy and Krystyon, both said they “….had a good time and wish it would come around again sooner!”
  • Mekayla Stokley said, “I really enjoyed the girls session.  We were able to express and elaborate our belief on the questions you asked us.  I enjoyed the vision board, it helped me see my life visually planned.  Thank you for getting the girls and I together to do this!  I wish you success on your future.”

Get group of your girlfriends or your daughters and their girlfriends and lets create vision together!
