Date with God

Our 2nd annual "Date with God" is coming up soon, and I'm excited!

What is "Date with God?"

It's an evening of chocolate and roses, Scripture, music, candles, and being reminded of God's love for us

Our first " Date with God" went beautifully last year, and I'm already looking forward to the one we're having this February 4th.

Friends and I began it last year at our church, fashioning it after a similar Date with God idea that is done every February at Concordia University, Irvine.

We adapted ours to be for jr. high and high school age young ladies.

The girls dressed up for their "date," and we hand each one a pink rose when they come in.  The night is filled with worship music, devotions, and prayer.  I love seeing these young girls share their hearts with Jesus.

One thing we learned the hard way last year is to never plan an event like this during Lent!  It hadn't even occurred to us, and we had so many lovely little desserts for the girls to eat (most of whom had given up sweets!)

It was such a lovely evening.

Invitations were sent out this week to all the girls in our church, and I can't wait for this special night!

If you're interested in doing something like this at your church, I have many resources I would be happy to pass on to you.

It's a blessing to be a blessing ♥



  1. I love seeing your photos from this! It is so neat to me how Date with God is happening all over Southern California... it was actually originally an idea from some girls at APU, and then at Concordia, and now to our two churches! (Not sure if they're still doing it at CUI). Neat how God works through our (imperfect) selves to share His love. :)

  2. P.S. I like to think we do a pretty good job of making the space beautiful for ours... but based on your photos, I'm pretty sure you might win! :)


Your sweet comments make my day! Thank you for coming to visit ♥
