First Club at Grays Harbor

After much prayer and support from a dynamic community, Grays Harbor had its first YoungLives Club. Coordinator Jackie Jamieson summed it up perfectly:

"Thank you so much! Last night went AMAZING! We had seven girls come. Four had babies and three were pregnant. We had a really yummy dinner and the girls got to make their babies some really cute owl hats and we made homemade laundry soap and they all got to take home a tub :) ...we had started a baby clothing and item 'store' and it has been flooded with donations. The girls got to go upstairs and get clothing, pack-n-plays, bouncers, car seats... everything you can think of for their kids! It was so great! God is truly blessing this ministry! Thank you for your prayers!" 

Spa Day Fun at Snohomish County

Western Washington has amazing ministry happening with teen moms! I hope to share some of that with you in each newsletter. Snohomish YoungLives is doing amazing ministry. Heather Hoglund leads a team that ministers to girls all over the county, and together they serve those girls each month. 
Pampering teen moms - a rare treat for them!

Recently they treated their girls to a spa event where, while childcare volunteers cared for their babies, the girls ate a meal together and received free pedicures, manicures, and hair cuts. Afterward, they heard about the incredible love of Jesus for each one of them.

Western Washington Young Lives

Did you know that Young Life has a ministry dedicated to meeting the needs of teen moms? YoungLives introduces pregnant teens and moms to Jesus and helps them grow in their faith. They give teen moms hope for the future and relief from the isolation and struggle of their daily lives while modeling the love of Christ. Teen moms need what YoungLives has to offer:
  • Hope for a future
  • Mentors to walk together
  • A place to gather and be safe
  • An opportunity to go to camp with their babies and have "the best week of their lives"
