Every month, we host a girls sleepover in one of our cottages at the beach. It is a chance for us to have a fun night of lots of laughing, encouraging, eating, being silly, and listening to the Word of God. I attended my first sleepover last weekend. After an extremely exhausting day, it was a nice way to relax. Although girls being girls, we talked our way through the wee hours of the morning. 

My dearest Rahab was sharing with us on "the Beauty of Brokeness". It was such an encouraging word for so many of us who have gone through tough tough times in our lives. God is faithful. He gives us beauty for ashes.

FOOD! We are girls and like to eat! It was a bit different cuisine than a sleepover in Canada. It consisted of cabbage, mukimo (mashed potatoes with beans, corns, kale), and chicken liver stew. I was wondering where the Doritos and Hot Dogs were. 

This is Baby Chris. He was the only boy allowed to stay the night with the girls. His mom Mercy is such an amazing woman. She is single mother who struggles to take care of her baby but she is so FAITHFUL to God. She inspires me to no end. 

Just a few of the girls the morning after. Such beautiful women they are. I was so inspired by their stories and the lives they live. I was so thankful for the life God has given me. I am so thankful for my Heavenly Father. We are all daughters of the King!
