SPIRITUAL THEME // Every single girls night, we plan with girls specifically in mind (obviously, lol). We usually start with prayer, followed up by asking questions like, "What do we feel God calling us to speak about?" and, "What spiritual perspective do our girls need to talk about? Specifically subjects that we can't usually talk with guys around." Obviously, comparison and other topics aren't exclusive to females. However, we start with that mindset, and from there we make a list of potential topics, research scripture, and pray about what the Lord is calling us to talk about. Our spiritual theme for this event girls night was comparison.
MESSAGE // For this event, my high school girls' counterpart and I split the message. She read and broke down the passage and I had the privilege to make it applicable to their lives. Our message of comparison was based off of the Old Testament story of Rachel & Leah. I sprinkled about 4 to 5 group questions throughout my talk and hit a main point in between each one.
GROUP QUESTIONS // We had our girls sit on the floor not only because we wouldn't have fit everyone in the room and not only because it went perfectly with the Bohemian theme, but mostly because we wanted to have the accessibility to have small groups! We strategically placed leaders throughout the room and around groups of girls to naturally help them create groups.
DECOR & FUN THINGS // Our goal with each girls night is to make them all unique and different from the ones prior. So our theme was Bohemian themed, or "Boho". String lights, tapestries, wild flowers, yarn wall art, fuzzy pillows, and candles are just a few fun things that come to mind with the word Boho.

These were not only a pretty takeaway for the girls, but flowers tied into my lesson of comparison as well!
PLACE & TIME // This girls night was specifically aimed towards our core group of girls (of course, they were encouraged to bring friends). Because of the timing and specific audience we wanted to draw, for this Girls Night we chose a more intimate location. We specifically picked a "non-prime time" to hit our girls who were a little closer to home.
