Girls’ Night Out: Our Favorite Things


Welcome to our third annual Girls’ Night Out!

For the past two Octobers, we’ve gathered here to ask each other questionshear each other’s stories, and celebrate this great community of women. It’s been fun!

Once again, I’ve gathered some friends for a GNO assignment: to share their favorite things.

You know how it is when girls get together… we trade book titles, concealer brands, and restaurant reviews. We also lean in close when one brave soul offers her favorite thing she’s learned about marriage, or when she reveals her favorite guilty pleasure. Then, we lean back to laugh, cry, and rest …

AND we’ve saved a seat just for you! Whether you’re the sharing type, a sideline encourager, or a quiet observer… this month is about YOU. It’s about being women who just want to belong and feel like they don’t have to do life alone, even when it’s difficult to get together in person.

And though we love the sweet men in our lives, let’s be honest… sometimes only women can understand women.  Amen?

You know you want to kick off those heels or jogging shoes, curl up with your favorite beverage, and get real with some girlfriends at the end of the day. Because isn’t that one of your very favorite things? It sure is mine.

I’m praying that God uses each and every Girls’ Night Out to bless and encourage women of all ages and stages for many months to come.

Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul. Psalm 66:16

One GNO post will go “live” each night at 7:00pm throughout the month.
