A Request...

Hi Blogging Friends!

GodlyGirlhood has been under construction for quite a while, as I have waited for the opportunity to design GG in the way I have envisioned, using my own design and graphics.
At long last, I am now creating the new GodlyGirlhood.org! If you click on this link, http://godlygirlhood.org.previewyoursite.com/, you can view snippets of the upcoming website, and learn how you can be a part of the new GG.

Yes, I need your help. GodlyGirlhood.org is to be a website for girls by girls, filled with encouraging stories and articles from those who "have been there before". Sister to sister, inspiring each other to seek after God in every aspect of their lives. I want you to share how God has changed your life, how He has convicted you, and how you are still growing.

Young women of today need to hear the great things Jesus Christ has done in our lives; they need hope, refocusing, and encouragement. And who else is better equipped than godly young ladies like yourselves? Let's minister to a broken generation of young women!

Submission Guidelines

Send your articles submissions in a Rich Text Format (.rtf) document (otherwise known as a WordPad document) to godlygirlhood@localnet.com with "GodlyGirlhood.org Articles" in the subject line. Articles should be at least 400 words, but no more than 2,000 words.

Articles may be edited for grammar and clarity. GodlyGirlhood.org may not use all submitted writings.

Writers must be mature Christian young women who agree with the below statement of faith. Older, married women who desire to encourage young women are certainly welcome to contribute as well. Writers may include a short bio about themselves and a JPEG/PNG picture of themselves.

Statement of Faith
We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth;

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy Christian church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; and the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. (Adapted from the Apostles' Creed)

We believe every word of the Bible is God's Word, and therefore the Bible is without error. God gave us the Bible to make us "wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus," and to train us in godly living (2nd Timothy 3:15-17).

We believe marriage is instituted by God (Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:5) and between one man and one woman. Children are a blessing from the Lord, and the family is the foundation of society (Psalm 127).
GET THE WORD OUT

Thank you for your help!
