In the Saturday morning session with the wonderful teen girls we focused on the words of Ephesians 6:10-18 and really anchored in on v. 13 which says,
“Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”
Since the theme of the conference was STAND in your love, I thought this was an excellent reminder for the girls. We spent the rest of the morning in small groups opening up about how we can stand firm in our faith even when anxieties and fear in our own lives seem to take over. I then lead the girls through a workshop on how to make clay earrings, it was so much fun! These earrings allowed them to create a tangible reminder that when you put on the full armor of God, you can stand your ground and, most importantly, stand in Christ’s love.
