God, Mom & Me Tea

6:00 PM - 3:30 PM

God, Mom & Me Teas will be held Thursday, August 1 from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m., Friday, August 2 from 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. and Saturday, August 3 from 10:00 - 11:30 or 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.  A God, Mom & Me Tea is an event for mothers and daughters to focus on the joy of womanhood, the beauty of God's design and the greatness of His timing for development. This event is designed for mothers, or mother figures, and daughters ages nine to twelve. A few days prior to the tea, mothers are encouraged to sit down privately with their daughters and read through her God, Mom & Me Tea booklet with her. The questions presented in the booklet will be filled out during the tea; however, this offers mothers a comfortable guide for discussing ahead of time purity, physical maturation and menstruation from an age-appropriate and biblical perspective. Dads can also be included in this discussion if his presence is comfortable for his daughter. This discussion gives your daughter the opportunity to first ask Mom or Dad questions she might otherwise direct to friends or others attending the tea. Mothers are shown as role models for their daughters, and parents are recognized as the primary sex-educators of their children. A God, Mom & Me Tea provides an elegant and intimate setting for reinforcing the mother-daughter relationship and honoring your pre-teen as she is introduced to God's design for young women. To add to this special event, mothers and daughters are encouraged to dress in their fanciest, modest tea-time dresses. Don't be afraid to go all out for this fun event!
