Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us work for the good for all, especially for those who belong to the household of faith.
When a friend asked me if I would be interested in hosting a paint night for the teen girls at our church I was instantly filled with gratitude. This is why Rachel’s Craft Room exists. This is was a opportunity for me to serve the teen girls at my church and show them some love.
My first paint night experience was SO. MUCH. FUN.
These girls were truly fun to be around!!! They are all so unique, funny, loving, and beautiful! These girls are not all close friends, but when you put them in a room together you would never know.
These girls were truly so kind to each other. They encouraged each other about their paintings the entire time. Offering each other advice, and praise. What they didn’t realize is how much they encouraged me. They showed me that women are made to lift each other up, and we don’t see that so much anymore. But there these young women were just constantly loving each other just as God loves us! They helped me open my eyes to see God wants me to be do this. Spreading my talents, and experience with these young women.
What I Learned?
Teen girls don’t need natural color: As you can see we did Happy Fall y’all signs. So I thought orange, red, brown, yellow, green, and white. Luckily my friend brought some other pastel colors. And they preferred the pastel colors!! I was so surprised. They took a lot of the colors and mixed them to get a different color.
Teen girls love pizza. I guess I should’ve known this.
Table cloths would have helped for clean up!
Paint night should occur more often.
Teen Girls can be ALOT of fun
My Friend Chelsea:
This friend that asked me to help with this event is one of those people I thank God for every night. Her faith is so inspiring, and I love everything about her. She has been there for me so often, and I go to her every time I am struggle in my faith. She always feel as though she might not be the best to help me with some of my life experiences because she hasn’t had kids yet, but her advice even without kids means the world to me. I am so thankful and honored she asked me to be apart of this night. I am so thankful she and her husband will be the leaders of the teens and that my boys will one day learn from them. I look forward to all the ways she will help my faith grow, and for all the memories we will share! Thank you for being you!!
