First Annual "Princess Night" at FBC Levelland

81 girls participated in our first annual "Princess Night". Over half were not members of our church! It was a great outreach!!! Praise God!
The girls in the "spa" having their nails done and hair fixed!!!
We tried to make the gym look elegant with I said, we tried!!!
Thanks to Aimee Miller, Sherry, Alexis, Holly, and Amie for decorating!
The girls arrived at 6, ate pizza and then listened to the Praise Band. Thanks to Stacy, Dustin, Greg, and Amber for "rockin" it out. The girls loved it; they were dancing, singing and jumping all around. Holly said it look like I mosh (sp?) pit!!!! We also had a speaker come in from Dallas, Shelly Conrad (go check out her website and prepare to be amazed!). She totally "captivated" the girls while talking about being a child of God. If you are ever in need of a speaker, I highly recommend her!

Then the girls broke into three groups to rotate through our three sessions. Session 1 was about how to have a quiet time. Thank you Holly, Christy, and Casey!!! After the presentation the girls decorated devotionals made by Amie!!! I have already had a report that two of the girls, that our sisters, have been having their own quiet time every night since Friday!!! God is sooooo good!!!

Session 2 was on the ACTS way to pray. The girls made BEAUTIFUL crystal/silver bracelets designed by Shannon, Stephanie, and Amber!!!

The junior counselors doing the girls hair!!!

Session 3 was all about being God's Princess. The girls got to decorate "princess" back packs to hold all of their goodies. Thanks Sherri, Stacy, and Ellen.

From 10-12 the girls spent time in the spa and doing crafts. Then we put on a "fashion" show in a "What Not To Wear" kind of way. It was followed up with the 3-5th grade girls talking to Ms. Lawless on how to dress and 6 grade and up talking with Megan Moore about purity and dressing to glorify God. Thanks to both of those ladies for doing an awesome job.
The rest of the night included sundaes, movies, crafts, games, etc.
Saturday morning Terri and Loyce made a special breakfast for the moms; we had over 35 moms in attendance. Shelly Conrad spoke to them about being God's Princess Warrior.
The only down side of the entire night for me was...
I missed it. =(
After all the preparation, I got pink eye in both eyes and an upper respiratory infection on Friday. I was heart-broken, but I had AWESOME FRIENDS texting and updating me all night long. Thanks to Sherry G. for these pics.
