They Do Exist.

Our Mission

WHY WE EXIST.

Because every girl needs a big sister, a friend, a mother, a daughter.

Because sometimes it’s hard to our love ourselves and others.

Because sometimes we don’t find all our answers in a church building.

Because we need encouragement to grow into ourselves, not into someone’s expectation.

Because we have stories to share and questions to ask – without judgement or embarrassment.

 

WHAT WE BELIEVE.

Trust, honesty, and encouragement. We are all in desperate need of knowing that we aren’t alone. Grace, not judgment; empathy, not misunderstanding.

Reality. Life is life, simple as that. Your life isn’t a romance novel, Hollywood, or sitting in church. All the girls telling their stories on this site are learning this along with you.

Truth, healing, and faith. Nothing is impossible for God, and every morning you wake up with the ability to start over. Somewhere inside you, you are already the woman you wish you could be.

Differences. You aren’t like everybody else, and that’s why we share stories from every kind of woman with every kind of past. Life is not one-size-fits-all. It’s something to love and respect.

Hard questions. The raw questions, the funny questions, the bedroom questions, the I’d-be-so-embarrassed questions, and the no-one-ever-talks-about-this-in-church questions.

Not being the only one. You are not the only one. There are others that have walked in your shoes, and there are others that understand. You are unique, you are one-of-a-kind, but you are not the only one.

Freedom. That means we believe that shame is dead, mercy is greater than judgment, and that it is possible for you to wake up to a life you want to live.

 

WHAT WE DESIRE.

For you to create your own definition of “a good woman” – and to believe you are that woman.

For everyone to let go of the idea that good women have their stuff together, look a certain way, and never do anything wrong.

For everyone to chill out, because life is too short to be stressed all the time.

We don’t want girls to have to figure out their personal life, their sex life, and their career life on their own.

We all have been wrestling with taboo topics by ourselves, and often don’t have women to talk openly with.

This stops here.
