We are so blessed!! We've had great success AND positive feedback from the Girls from our 2nd and 3rd meetings of GirlsFOCUSED!! And man, are these girls FOCUSED!! They KNOW what it means to BE a friend AND how to choose friends!! Trish Murray brought it!! sharing Proverbs 18:24, 27:17, and 13:20 today at our 3rd meeting. Check out these passages of scripture that talk about those unreliable friends that can bring you to ruin, that friend that sharpens you, and walking among WISE folk!!! Now, that's what's up!!

We ate good and healthy, too! Baked potato and chopped salad w/a cup-o-hot chocolate - w/marshmallows ...well, we may have cheated a little w/the sour cream and marshmallows!! but IT WAS GOOD!!!

March 12 is our next GirlsFOCUSED group meeting! Come join us as we continue to focus on relationships!!

Check out the calendar on our website at focused-ministries.org for more information!! God bless!!

I come in agreement with you according to the Word that says God provides seed for the sower a nd bread for the eater. In faith we call those things that be not as though they were. So in the name of Jesus we call your budget done in faith. Since out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. We speak that your harvest be manifeste according to the spoken word. We have what we say . So thank you a Lord that this Ministry has more than enough. Since this Ministry is a tithing one God has a covenant to open the windows of heaven and more than we can receive
