Valleydale to host Girls of Gracecomment (0)

Weight, self-esteem, popularity, beauty, relationships. They’re all things that can weigh heavily on the heart and mind of anyone, but especially a teenage girl.
“At times girls feel like they are the only ones who struggle with certain issues,” said Denise Jones of Point of Grace.
That’s why the contemporary Christian music group started Girls of Grace conferences (click here to see story). “It gives (girls) the opportunity to come together in a large group and realize that we all have our own struggles, and yet we are in this together,” Jones said on www.girlsofgrace.com.
Girls of Grace, a girls-only conference held at least 12 times a year across the United States, is coming to Birmingham on March 9, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at Valleydale Baptist Church, Birmingham.
Featuring performances by Moriah Peters, for KING & COUNTRY, Lindsay McCaul and Point of Grace, this year’s theme is “The Beautiful Truth,” based on John 8:32, “And they will know the truth and the truth will set them free.”
The Birmingham conference speakers include Chris Wheeler, youth speaker and director of student initiatives at Show Hope, a nonprofit orphan/adoption ministry founded by Steven Curtis Chapman; Annie Downs, inspirational author; Constance Rhodes, founder and CEO of FINDINGbalance, a Christian nonprofit company with an emphasis on eating and body image; and Amber Lehman, celebrity stylist to artists like The Civil Wars, Kenny Chesney and Three Doors Down.
