Tonight I had the pleasure of providing invitations and goodie bags (with raspberry rainbow popcorn!) for some great teen moms, headed out on a YoungLives girls’ night movie night. YoungLives is a part of YoungLife, a Christian outreach ministry for high schoolers, and YoungLives focuses on teen moms and their children. I’ve been personally involved with YoungLife since 2001, as a leader in Champaign, IL and State College, PA, and I currently serve where I can here in our local YoungLife area. It’s an incredible ministry, and YoungLives is no exception. Mentor moms volunteer their time to build relationships with teen moms and show them the love and care and comfort that they need. Once a month, the teen moms are treated to a night just for them – with dinner, activities, great conversation, and lots of love. Tonight teen moms and their mentor moms headed out on the town (baby-free!) to watch a movie… something so many high schoolers do every week, but not girls with little ones at home. (I think I’ve personally seen 1 movie in the theater since the birth of my first daughter, 2 years ago.)
I feel so blessed to be able to be even a small part of something so great tonight.
