The Lighthouse Project is a program for 8th grade girls designed to give Mother's an opportunity to come along side their daughters and be an example and to teach them what it is to be a Godly Woman. The lighthouse Project is designed to challenge these young ladies by taking them through the 5 Aspects of Femininity, encouraging them to be of service to their church and community, teaching them life skills, and most importantly bringing them closer to Jesus by encouraging their own personal relationship with Him. Anyone who participates in this program has chosen to do so themselves. At the beginning of the program each student has to make the commitment to finish. We ask each student to decide for themselves and to be responsible for their choices. We want to give these students an opportunity to find out who they are and who God made them to be and to be able to walk confidently with God into High School. At the end of the program, we end with each student receiving a special blessing from their mom's and we challenge the church to treat them like young adults.
We chose The Lighthouse Project for 3 separate reasons. 1. A lighthouse is built on the coast, strong and sturdy, continuously weathering waves and storms, and they last for years and years. We want to give these young ladies a firm foundation in God, particularly in their personal relationship with him, and also some solid friendships. We want these girls to have true friends to keep each other accountable and to be there when the storms come in. 2. Lighthouses are beautiful things. People photograph them, paint or Draw them and then hand them on their walls to look at and admire every day. It embodies the feminine quality to look pretty themselves yes, but also to make the world they live in a beautiful thing. We like the idea that a man can build a house, and a woman can make a home. 3. A lighthouse has a light that comes from inside. This light separates them from the dark and the rest of the world, gives them a purpose, and allows them to guide ships out of rough waters and to safety. With these three points in mind, we thought The Lighthouse Project was very fitting.
