I am so blessed to have grown up with this wonderful group of women. In 2nd grade my mom helped start the Owatonna American Heritage Girls troop 31, and I've been apart of the group ever since. I thank God every day for these amazing young women and leaders who have come into my life and shaped me into the girl I am today. They have always been there and encouraged me in every aspect of my life. This evening at our monthly meeting, I was asked to come in my sash and crown for a time of prayer. It meant so much for the girls to put their hands over me and lift me up to The Lord. I am so blessed to have had this group of women in my life and to have them keeping me in their prayers as I prepare for this weekend.
