Conference & Tea Party
The Wonderfully Made Conference and Tea Party is a “by invitation only” event designed especially for girls in middle and high school. In today’s society girls are given so many messages about who and what they should be, from the way they look to how they should be treated by others. Unfortunately, many of these messages do not encourage our girls to embrace and celebrate how special and valuable they already are. This event was created to help young girls find their value and worth in the person God created them to be.
Psalm 139:14- I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

“As an author of Christian teen fiction and the mother of two teen girls, I am intimately familiar with the challenges young girls face today. With this in mind, I was proud to be the keynote speaker at Christlike Fellowship’s 2012 Wonderfully Made Conference and Tea Party. At this event I was given the opportunity to speak to a group of teens and their moms. This event was the start of a year-long girl’s mentor program that focuses on helping young girls embrace and celebrate how wonderfully made they truly are.”
