Straight Up Beautiful

Anchor Logo
Middle school can be tough. School work gets a little harder. Friends change. Responsibilities grow. At times it can feel hard to stay afloat with all these new changes. But imagine if your middle school years could be lived with confidence, great friendships, and a purpose every single day! This is all possible when we anchor ourselves in God’s truth. Straight Up Beautiful is a one-night conference for middle school girls that invites them to discuss the truth about friendships, identity, and purpose, all while having a ton of fun together. There’ll be food, games, prizes, an onsite taco truck (JB's tacos) and we’ll even send you home with some awesome giveaways! 

Also, moms and mentors, don't miss out on your own special gathering that will take place the same night. Check out the details below.

(P.S. Straight Up Beautiful high school is coming soon...)

Moms’ and Mentors’ Night Out

Ever worry you don’t have what it takes to parent (or mentor) well? Ever wonder how you’ll be able to get or stay connected no matter what? If we want to be women who help young women grow in wisdom, integrity, and faith, we need to look beyond ourselves. 
When you drop your teens off at Straight Up Beautiful, feel free to grab a taco and then come join us at the Morning Star Church House for a relaxed, informal program from 6 to 8 pm, where we'll discuss how to tap into the rich resources God has given us for our journey.  After that, we’ll just hang out, play board games, and fellowship! The cost is FREE. Don't miss this time of insights, resources, sharing, and fun!
