We had classes on Natural Home Products and Photography. Both of which were incredible. In Natural Home Products Mama L might have been heard saying, ” using industrial cleaners is like using a shot gun to kill an ant.” 🙂 In the photography class Christina showed some of the rules of composition and talked about when to follow them and when it might be better to break the rules.

Christina, one of our beloved staff from last year gave a great talk on comparison. She brought up a valuable point that when we compare ourselves to others we are not loving them as God has called us to love.

In the evening activity we wanted to show the girls how we view them, to help them push aside those doubts and questions about “do I fit in”  “what do people thing of me” “am I pretty?” So we had each girl sit behind the chalkboard while each of the girls came and wrote a word or phrase. Then after everyone had given an encouragement the girl got to look at her board.

It really was wonderful to watch the girls rally around each other offering beautiful words that uplifted one another.

But it was eclipsed by when we watched a video about who God calls himself. I don’t lightly say people should go watch you tube videos, but this you should watch. You will be uplifted and joyous and ready to fall on your knees before God.

The chalkboard was brought out again, only this time it was filled with the words God uses for us as sinners. One by one those words were erased and replaced by what God calls us as His sons and daughters.
