“Raising your girl to be reverent is a tricky task. We can’t force our daughters into having faith, but we can shape the way they view what it means to be faithful.” – Raising Godly Girl Minute

It’s #CreedwordWednesday! Girl Members who complete the AHG Program will be Christ-following servant leaders who are honoring, relational, anchored in Christ, and competent. They are women who promise to be Resourceful. They are women of Integrity.

American Heritage Girls is unashamedly Christ-centered & girl-focused. Our prayer is that girls who complete the AHG Program will be confident in their God-given identity, planted in Biblical truths, & submitted to Christ & His will for their lives.

#NewTroopTuesday We have no new Troops to announce today. Please pray that more leaders and churches will step forward to start a Troop.
