Our August workshop was all about Family Feud fun! It was the perfect thing because it was so nasty outside with storms. One young lady is terrified of storms and the sound of the thunderclap and lights flickering out sent her into panic. We were able to witness an actual trauma response. She began to cry curled up into a corner and with recognizing this one of our volunteers just stopped what she was doing and sat with her. No judgement, no condemnation, and no criticism; just love, relation, and compassion. After one final round of the game we sat and talked about what kind of skills the girls wanted to learn. This helps us better prepare for our leader drive coming up! All in all a real good day.
We can’t wait to see the finished products!
Cookies and ornaments were decorated and they looked so good!
Time for a new year and new ideas for workshops and monthly visits. I hate I had to miss this month. It always brightens my days when I get to visit
Our September workshop was in person and let us tell you…our hearts are full.
We planned fun outdoor activities for the girls at Youth Villages and got so wrapped up in the day and all it meant we didn’t take a ton of pics! Getting lost in the loving and serving is what Chicktime Nashville is all about ….you should join us one month!
Even though we weren’t able to visit with our Wallace girls in person this month,
we were able to show some Chicktime love and put together
spa gift baskets for all the girls, and send one of our graduates off to
MTSU with a giant box full of college essentials.
Thank you sooo much to all who contributed! Y’all are amazing.
Chicktime Nashville sends a special thanks to
￼￼ Anna Peterman for such a great Valentine’s craft day!

After dinner we did karaoke Christmas songs.
The kids won the water wars. They enjoyed getting the leaders drenched.
We had a great time playing Dodge the Water Balls, badminton, and volleyball.
The gifts were greatly appreciated. Thanks for all of you that donated.
We would also like to thank our volunteers that barbecued our yummy lunch.
We ended our day with ice cream sundaes.
This event was one of our favorites.
Each person is touching the lives of these young ladies by donating gifts,
donating items or volunteering.
And for that, we can’t Thank You enough.

The ladies enjoyed sports day. It rained so we moved it inside and played table tennis.
Our tournament was one for the books.
After Renee Smith taught us how to make flower crowns.
The perseverance paid off and we finally finished the crowns.
The finished product was beautiful.
We then proceeded to our first Chicktime birthday party.
Each girl received a pink bag with coloring books, pencils, and journals.
The house received towels and art supplies.
Leader Stephanie made the cupcake cake. It was perfectly moist and delicious.
We loved seeing Renee, meeting Anna and Jackie. Thanks for all your help and love.
We hope to see you at next month’s sing along.
