What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word summer?

Pool time? Family Vaca? Work? Internship? School? Boredom?

Whatever the reality for your summer happens to be – more than likely it’s a departure from the norm. Unfortunately, summer is a time that some women tend to drift away from their relationship with God.  It’s common for summers to be challenging because you’re typically away from the consistency of ministry involvement, Bible studies, and a predictable schedule. Not to mention, sometimes it’s lonely being away from the relationships that you’re used to having. It’s really easy to shift into “vacation mode” in every area of your life, including your walk with God.

But this doesn’t have to be your experience.  You have a choice. You don’t have to get to the end of August and feel like you wasted an opportunity to grow closer to God. Redeemed Girl Ministries wants to encourage you to redeem this time and proactively pursue growth in your spiritual life by not allowing it to be put on the backburner!

We believe in the importance of becoming a person who is not dependent upon others in order to grow spiritually but you are a woman who takes her faith seriously and makes it a priority. For this reason, our team has put together a Redeemed Girl’s Summer Survival Guide.

Here are suggestions our team has put together for you to help you have a meaningful summer:

  • Download the RGM App: This FREE app gives you access to hundreds of teaching podcasts by Marian Jordan Ellis (Just think about it girls, laying out poolside just became purposeful!).  Tan + Teaching = Smart Girl
