Put on Your Big-Girl Panties

27 Jun

In the coming weeks we’re going to be tackling some heavy stuff on Girls Night.  Things that, if girls can grasp them NOW, it will revolutionize their lives.  They’re not hard things, not confusing things – just powerful things.  It will challenge their notions of God and change the way they make choices.  So – I told the girls, “When you come next week, you’re going to have to put on your Big Girl Panties!”

Seriously though – – – they’re going to have to put them on!

Check out my foot as a point of reference. These are some large panties.

I think these will be the perfect reminder to remain in the “big girl” state of mind.  Be sure to check back to see what we discuss on our Big Girl Panty nights!


Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby.

27 Jun

At last weeks Girls Night, we had “Quiz Night.”  We took all sorts of revealing quizzes to see who would survive the longest on a desert island, who’s a good flirt, and how well you really know your friends.

We ended the night with “The Last Quiz,” which was chock full of questions about Girls Night and the youth group.  An evaluation of sorts.  I asked if the girls felt comfortable, accepted, and welcomed.  I asked what topics they wanted to talk about, what questions they had for me, and what we could do better.

EASILY 60% of the answers were about – you guessed it.  SEX.  Their questions were so honest and precious, and incredibly insightful.  Here are a few:

  • “How important is it to wait to have sex?”
  • “If you want to have sex with your boyfriend, but know you shouldn’t, how do you resist the urge?”
  • “I want to graduate high school a virgin, is it possible?”
  • “What is the best way to stay out of trouble with boys?”

Parents!  Talk to your kids about sex!  They need to know – they’re begging to know!  Sex is a beautiful, integral part of marriage, and a pervasive issue in our society.  We must address it!  Families need to, parents need to, the church needs to!

So, we’re going to! 🙂  Our next “series” at Girls Night is going to be about sex – we’ll answer all of these questions and more.  You won’t want to miss it!  Stay tuned.
