WHY WE EXIST.
We exist for the 15-25(ish) year old girl who is trying to figure out how to be a woman.
We exist to be a big sister or a mom that you never had.
We exist to help women love themselves and others.
We exist for the girl who isn’t finding all her answers in a church building.
We exist for the girl who isn’t doesn’t like or believe in church or God, too.
We exist to encourage women to grow into themselves, not into someone’s expectation.
We exist to create best-friend conversations between single women and married women.
We exist to share stories without judgment and questions without embarrassment.
WHAT WE BELIEVE.
We believe in trust, honesty, and encouragement. We are all in desperate need of breaking the silence, and knowing that we aren’t alone. Grace, not judgment; empathy, not misunderstanding. We know this is hard. We’re here for you.
We believe in reality. Life is life, simple as that. Your life isn’t a romance novel, Hollywood, or sitting in church. And we know that. And so do all the girls telling their stories on this site.
We believe in 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. Seriously. We genuinely believe this. And we want to be your reminder.
We believe in 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. We respect that, and love it.
We believe in 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.
We believe in 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.
We believe in 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.
We want to help you re-define what a good woman really is – and remind you that you are that woman.
We want to help you let go of the idea that a “good woman” is someone that has their stuff together, looks a certain way, and never does anything wrong.
We are adamant believers that good women have the most fun, the best sex, and the most fulfilling lives. But we have to talk to each other about life in order to get there.
Our generation of women is in the midst of an identity crisis. We struggle to stand up for ourselves; to identify and to be in relationship with good men. We struggle to see ourselves as we truly are. We struggle to move out of our past and into our future. We struggle with sub-par relationships, and the majority of us don’t have parents with healthy marriages to go to for advice.
We don’t want girls to have to figure out their personal life, their sex life, and their career life on their own.
We’ve been wrestling with taboo topics by ourselves, and we don’t have women to talk openly with. This stops here.
Please join us as we stop the bitching and the biting, and bring good women back to life.
