January Update:

Something beautiful happened today.
It was COLD so very cold but despite of it we were able to serve 41 kids!!!
We shared the gospel, played games, and we had warm spaghetti pasta and hot chocolate.
But something beautiful happened
When we were done with our program we had some food leftovers (If you have come to our program you know how much kids like to take the leftovers home.)
I was able to witness a little one who had procured some of the leftovers willingly give another his leftovers.
This simple gesture brought tears to my eyes!
THAT is why we are there sharing the gospel, creating relationships and loving on these sweet babies.
If you woulld like to be part of the magic please inbox me.
Yes something truly beautiful happened on this very special day dedicated to Mary Estella Castro a sweet lady that showed a tremendous amount of kidness to my family and I.

It’s my most favorite time of the year!!
Our 9th annual posada was a complete success
We set out to show the kids the true reason for the season:: JESUS
We did just that and the kids had an amazing time.
We started with our prayer circle and ended with piñatas, candy goody bags and lots and lots of food.
Their smiles were everything!!
None of this would be possible without all the wonder volunteers who donate not only their financial resources but also their precious time.
We plan to come back next year stronger than ever.
If you would like to donate a meal any Wednesday next year please reach out to Me.
If you have a heart for street ministry and would like to come out and minister to the children we would Love to have you!

November Update:

We had an amazing time at ChickTime-Galveston’s November workshop!!!
It is the season of Thanksgiving!
We wanted to teach the kids to cultivate a spirit of gratitude that would last a lifetime.
We asked them to write a thank you note to someone who had made a difference in their life and to make a list of the things they are grateful for.
We encouraged them take the journal home and add a gratitude entry each day.
They wrote thank You cards to their moms, cousins, teachers, coaches friends and siblings.
It was humbling to listen to why they chose the person they chose.
So very grateful to be able to be His hands and feet.
The biggest THANK YOU to all who support our ministry.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
THIS is why we CHICKTIME!!

October Update:

Our very first OFFICIAL ChickTime event at our new charity partner was absolutely wonderful!!
The assignment was simple-
Make prayer rocks for children that are being affected by the war, famine, homelessness and broken hearts.
We encourageed the kids to take the rocks home or place them around the park so that everytime they saw them they would remember to say a prayer for the children of the world.
We love starting our workshops with a prayer circle and to have children join us in prayer. This time was no different!
The kids showed up in a mighty way to complete the workshop activity!
I’d like to thank my cousin Esmi and her sweet family for providing a wonderful meal.
The biggest thank you to Adella, Rosemary, Emita, Souby, Aymara and the Texas A&M black student association for supporting the kids at Shine USA with their time and resources.
Thank you Pam, Nancy, Brianna and Nick for giving of your time week after week to spread the gospel to those who need it most.
If you would like to volunteer send me a PM !
Chicktime Galveston would love to have you!

April Update:

This past Saturday we were blessed to visit the children and their families for Easter.
Thank you @3rd Coast Tundras and Rodriguez family for a wonderful celebration.
We learned that the shelter was being closed down literally an hour before our event. We were determined to show the remaining families a wonderful time!
During our prayer circle we reminded them of God’s love for them and that we would keep them in our prayers as they found a new home.
Please keep the families and the Children’s Center in your prayers as they navigate the acquisition of a new building where they can continue to serve those that need them most.


March Update:

Overcloud skies and cold rain didn’t stop Chicktime’s Spring Fling. The kids were able to make their very own treasure boxes. Decorated with broken jewelry and their imagination, the lesson was to teach that even broken things can be beautiful. While we may not have alot of money, or the fancy clothes, or the right hairstyle…we are all still beautiful. So, on this rainy day with the dreary skies, the smiles and enthusiasm from the children in the shelter made today perfectly beautiful!
Each child will fill their treasure boxes with things that make them happy..
It can be their favorite candy
A pretty rock they find or like someone said, with memories.
And so THIS is why we ChickTime

February Update:

January Update:

August Update:

We had THE best time at ChickTime today!!!
The rain surely didn’t stop us.
We started with a prayer circle in which we prayed over the kids and their lives.
The question for the day was if you could be/do ANYTHING, if there were no obstacles at all what would you be/do
I got lots of answers
Some wanted to be a princess
A súper hero
A mermaid
A soldier to serve his country
A welder in the army
A music producer
A teacher/ counselor
Another soldier
I asked them to reflect that in their art.
Here are some of the things they drew
The angels were a hit and I don’t even know how they got in my arts supplies because I don’t remember getting them. BUT hey that is how God works sometimes
So yes THIS is why we ChickTime

May Update:

“I am the daughter of a king who is not moved by the world.
For my God is with me and goes before me.
I do not fear because I am HIS”
Proverbs 31
How often do we feel like we are not god enough, like we do not belong, that we are not loved, that we have been abandoned.
We wanted to remind the moms at the childrens center who they are in Christ.
Our first workshop back to the children center was truly amazing
You could feel God moving among us.
We laughed we cried, ok we cried a lot we had each of the moms give one another a crown and to tell each other something good about each other or a simple prayer over their lives.
We have to remind each other that I’m Christ we are loved
We are cherished
We are His
We will not allow ourselves to believe the lies of the world.
As women sometimes we have ri be the ones who hand another her crown, so she is reminded of the princess that she is, regains her strength and keep the faith.
We were blessed to have young girls who were also crowned by their mommies so that that cycle is broken. So that they too know who they are.
As one of them said” life can be hard and if you get to spend just a few seconds with someone, then make them better than they were”
Their resilience and love for one another was palpable.
My heart is full.
Extra thanks for the angels who prepared meals and delivered pizza in addition to our monthly gathering.
Thank you ChickTime Angels for making a difference in the lives of these mommies.

Chicktime Galveston’s October workshop was full of fun, laughter and a whole lot of Jesus.

See you next month~ Let’s give thank together!

September Update:

Since our September workshop was canceled due to flooding we do n0t have pictures to post. We ask that you pray for our charity partner as they regroup. We are going to plan a big workshop for October to make sure they all feel love from Chicktime.

Due to the area flooding and the conditions Tropical Imelda continues to impact around the shelter and roads getting there….we are canceling the September workshop.

Safety for our volunteers is important to us as well as the shelter staff and residents.

Please keep everyone in your prayers.

We will double up on fun at our October workshop.

Thank you.

We had a power event today and the girls shared their stories with us.
My heart brakes for these girls and everything they have gone through.

Thank you Claudia for leading such and amazing event.
May God continue to bless you abundantly.

August Update:

Thank you to everyone who helped us gather school supplies and backpacks for the children!

We are so blessed to live among such passionate and caring friends and family!

In addition to our backpack and supply drive our August workshop was a positive affirmation journaling event. The kiddos were very excited to receive their journals to write down daily thoughts and affirmations.

July Update:

Our Summer festival was simply….beautiful!
God showed up in a big, big way.

The kids smiled and laughed so much. A good time was had by all!

Blessed and thankful That God always provides for Chicktime and His babies!

These beautiful children need someone to believe in them. Today we told an oldest boy of a sibling group of 3 that when he grew up he could come back and lead activities like this to love and encourage other children. You could tell he understood the love and hope that could bring and he became our all day helper! It’s as simple as that to make a difference in a child’s life.

Our July workshop date had to be changed due to  scheduling conflicts…

Please Join us for a

Summer Festival

June Update:

Chicktime June was SO much fun this month! We played loteria for prizes & ate Roasted Chicken, ham Mac and cheese, Fresh watermelon,and of course… the girls favorite chips and sweets!
We also distributed donated clothing and toiletries.
Our volunteers were very touched and one of them is considering fostering as she fell in love with one of the three sets of twins that the shelter currently has. Praying that happens!

May Update:

Our time with the kids this month was over-the-top special. We had so much fun playing games and sharing food together.

Everyone seemed connected….

We know our workshop was God approved…

We felt HIS presence….

And so did the kids…..

We also talked to the kids about the resent school shooting as it was in all of our minds.
We encouraged then to let people know if they were hurting,
We told them that it was OK to not be OK and that it was ok to ask for help.
We also encouraged them to be “That” person that reaches out to those who seem lost and lonely, to speak up against bullying any and every time they encountered it.
But most importantly we let them know that God loves them and they we loved them.
We made ourselves available during the event to them and several came up to us and shared some of their stories and some of their pain.
We need to pray for our children,
They are indeed hurting.

Special thanks to Rosie Rodriguez and Dianna Garza-Martinez for leading this amazing event and to our volunteers Kimberly Chung, Arien, Sean Janoe and Valdez Jesi.

April Update:

God always provides…..

From the heart…

Well this past  week I was really sweating it because my cousin passed away and I knew I needed to go to Mexico for his funeral! It was Chicktime Weekend and Diana, our other Chicktitime co-learder,  could not attend because her daughter had her first volleyball tournament of the season and my sister had her granddaughters birthday party and well let’s just say there were a lot of obstacles to me leaving for a family funeral and Chicktime happening!!

 I called my cousin Ana, who was signed up as the monthly leader and had been coming faithfully for over a year now  and asked her if she thought she could do it alone ~(she was bringing two volunteers with her) her two nieces Abby and Andréa Arriata. She said “of course cousin”!

She did an amazing job, she said that when she got there she could hear the girls inside saying “it’s Chicktime, Chicktime is here”

The experience was life changing for the new volunteers and they can’t wait to come back. The devil wanted Chicktime Galveston not to happen this past Saturday, but God is so much more powerful.

We continute to build our Chicktime chapter and are so grateful when GOD provides just the right amount of volunteers to put on our monthly activity….with or without me!

All for HIS glory,
Elvia Gomez​

March Update:

Chicktime Galveston was blessed to come and play with the kids at this past Saturday.

Fun was had by all!

We hunted for eggs, took pictures with the Easter bunny, and ate pizza, cookies and fruit.

February Update:

We had an amazing time of fellowship with the girls.
We shared the love of  Christ with them.
There were tears, there were hugs and we “reached” them…
What an amazing feeling when we see their reluctance to join in become enthusiasm.
These girls are from all over the United States and now they know that there is a Chicktime Chapter  in a lot of  different cities and they can  always come to any chapter and they will be loved and they will be helped!
One girl from California said that when she went back she was going to do something like us~
She was going to help others!!
They got our message~Praise God!
Our worst, our broken pieces is all He needs to help us reach others and to make something beautiful!!

January Update:

So much can happen when you gather in LOVE!!

Our January workshop was powerful testimony of LOVE!
We had the girls write something positive about all the people in the room
AND then a positive about themselves!
We read each affirmation out loud and the look of joy and smiles from the girls were priceless as they heard positive things about themselves.

We talked about empowerment
And speaking positively about their lives.
Jennifer shared her life story and the girls really bonded with her.
It was a God filled afternoon.

It would be our honor if you joined us next month at our YOGA workshop!

December Update:

Our annual Christmas Posada was humbling and full of wonder!

The word posada means “inn” or “shelter” in Spanish and in this tradition, the Bible story of Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem and their search for a place to stay is re-enacted or celebrated. There are different ways to have the festivity of the posada, but we believe at Chicktime Galveston that the children and families we serve find “shelter” in our workshops and feel the love of Christ by coming to our “inn” every month.

It’s always with great love and excitement that we have our annual Posada, but it’s pure joy to provide “shelter” every month!


This month was full of new beginnings….

Our charity partner moved locations and this brought about a different way we were going to serve!

New place, new kids, new dynamics, new challenges….

With all the unknown, we decided to softly have Chicktime November and not really announce our workshop to access things and get a better feel of our new~  Chicktime!

We should of known that when we place it in God’s hands it’s taken care of~ Faith over Fear!!

These pictures don’t show the love and grace that was present in our workshop…

These pictures don’t show the hurt and broken girls laughing and talking and having hope in their heart…

But believe us….It was all there!! God was in the house!

New place, new kids, new dynamics, new challenges….Yes!!

But we have an awesome opportunity to be HIS hands and feet and through HIM offer new life!!


Thank you Rosie Rodriquez for leading our October workshop!

Carmel Apples never tasted so good!

The kids smiled from ear to ear and their joy was priceless.

Please help us continue to spread that joy at our November workshop!

It will be the best couple of hours you will ever spend!

September Update:

These wonderful volunteers showed up to help us make jewelry and do a little free art!

And maybe eat a few desserts…..

It’s amazing how every month the workshops just keep getting better and better! Not because of the activity, but because of the love and joy that is in the room when Chicktime Galveston is going on!!

Check us out next month!


August Update:

We love to be His hands and feet!

Thank you all of our “Chicktime Angels” that donated school supplies, toiletries, clothing for the new baby girls, and other clothing that was set up “garage style” for the families to go through and get for free.

We served a total of 15 families!!!!



July Update:
