Bright Lights-Training Young Ladies to be Radiant in Godliness, Holiness and Testimony

I have been diligently searching for some summer time curriculum that I could do with my girls.  I am very excited to say that I have found something wonderful, and I am so happy to share it with you.

Bright Lights is an organization that was started by Sarah Mally, a seventeen-year-old at the time, who was concerned about the spiritual walk of many young ladies she knew. The Lord gave her the desire to begin a discipleship ministry in order to share with these girls some of the things the Lord had taught her. She decided to call the group Bright Lights. BRIGHT stands for Being Radiant In Godliness, Holiness, and Testimony. 

I recently talked with Sarah, and she graciously sent me their Discipleship package so I could review it.  The curriculum is full of critical information that our girls need to learn.  It is directly targeted for girls 8-12...perfect for my 8 and 10 year olds.

There are five sets of lessons, and each lesson has several parts to it, so it will easily last us all summer if we do a couple each week.  Here is a small sampling of the lesson titles:

  • developing a close relationship with your parents
  • accepting the way God created you
  • truthfulness
  • contentment
  • self-control
  • friends
  • courage to stand alone
  • complaining and murmuring
  • gossip
  • honoring your parents
Each lesson has a suggested memory verse, a small explanation of the topic, biblical examples, real life stories, and applying it to life.  The binder also comes with sections for Prayer, Daily Bible Reading, and a place to record special verses.

I have allowed my girls several days after school ended earlier this week to "decompress", but we will be jumping into this curriculum next week.  I will be sure to let you all know how it is going.  If you choose to order the package, please let me know.  I would love to hear your thoughts and progress.
