Why Wait?

We have a few more weeks until the calendar tells us we should remember why we’re thankful but, why wait? 9eb1a6d4d

I don’t know about you but, there are so many reasons I’m thankful right now and one of those reasons is YOU!

Thank you so much for being a supporter of Marvelous University.

Thank you for being a member of the Marvelous University family.

Thank you so much for following the journey whether it’s here on the blog or on Facebook or Instagram or even YouTube and Twitter. You have allowed me to be myself and live out my purpose of reminding young people, and those young at heart, they are absolutely MARVELOUS!

My hope is that you will continue walking with me and those who join me, as we continue to grow. There are some REALLY exciting things happening and I hope you’ll be able to join us on the journey.

Quick Updates:

Marvelous Girls’ Summit
We had the 4th Annual Marvelous Girls’ Summit October 26 and ohmygoodness, what a time! A longer update is on the way but, if you’re following the Marvelous Girls’ Summit page you were practically there 🙂

QCommons Dallas
In the same week of the MGS, I was invited to be a local speaker for the two-hour live event to educate Christians on how to bring hope and leadership to their communities in a critical moment for America.

The Boost at Maderia 
Ok, you’re not going to believe this, but the day after the MGS, I was on a plane to Washington, DC to join my dear Girls’ Leadership Camp sistafriends, Brook, Em, and Kelly, as Kelly hosted a Boost on her campus. We had a BALL!

Attachment-1 (3) There was even a podcast released where I shared a very personal story of how healing from the impossible is possible, no matter how long it takes.

And that was all in the last week in October.

GET READY

So, here are some things to look forward to. If you’re anything like me, I’m already planning summer experiences and would love for you to join me and Marvelous University for every single one!

Here in Dallas, we’ll be partnering with Summer@Hockaday again for Marvelous Girls Lead, a week-long day camp for middle school girls at The Hockaday School. Registration for their summer programs opens on February 1, 2020, at 10:00 AM.

For our high school girls, we have a super cool experience where you can come with me and Brook and some marvelous Girl Captains as we head back MOROCCO!  Registration is already open and there are limited spots so…let’s go! 🙂

We have some exciting things in the works for parents and mentors and those who love working with young people so stay tuned. There are more updates and things to look forward to, including where I’m speaking, on the website.

Our marvelous t-shirt

On the website, you can also find some really cool Marvelous Merchandise, including the new Marvelous University t-shirt designed by Erika Jones. Don’t you just love it!!

As you can see, there is soooo much to be grateful for! So much has happened and there is so much more to come! And, if you have an idea or know of a place that would welcome a Marvelous University program, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

May you have continued moments where gratitude takes your breath away.

 

Love,

Shanterra

PS: Feel free to share this with others. I have learned the best way for folks to learn about Marvelous University is through supporters like YOU. 🙂
