R.E.A.L. Girls + Sadie Robertson

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and DaySpring, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #DayspringSadieRob
    Last weekend I was able to attend a young girls conference that a couple ladies from our sister churches in San Antonio organize every year. This was my second time attending and I had the pleasure of leading a small group this year. These conferences are for young girls in middle school and high school. They talk about issues young girls go through and just lift up and encourage girls. I really wish there was something like this when I was a teen! Just to be able to fellowship with other girls who share your same faith is awesome! In high school you often feel like an outsider when you live out your faith but R.E.A.L girls conferences are made to make you feel like you belong. This year's theme was ANEW and was based off of Romans 12:1-2 

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind; Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is his good, pleasing and perfect will."

Conforming is something we tend to do because it's just easier than living out what we truly believe. I struggle with this even in my late twenties. We tend to slowly blend into the world without even realizing it. That is the beauty of the word of God, it can touch the heart of a young girl and the heart of a mother of three just the same. I was blessed and encouraged by the workshops that weekend even if they were directed towards the girls. 

Sadie Roberton recently teamed up with Dayspring to create a Live Original line of products for young girls full of positive and encouraging messages. So I thought it would be perfect for the girls attending the conference that weekend. I went to my local Hobby Lobby and picked up three journals to giveaway. I really wanted to buy a ton more but it looks like these are pretty popular and these were the last three items I found at Hobby Lobby.
You can also find notebooks and folders which are perfect for back to school. These products are not only cute they also come with encouraging messages such as this one...
... and each page inside includes a bible verse.  I always loved writing when I was younger and I loved keeping journals. My favorite journals where the ones with scripture on each page. The verse I would read seemed to be just what I needed that day.
Here is one of the girls who won a Sadie Robertson journal. I hope that when she sees this journal it can remind her of everything she learned at the conference that weekend and that as she opens that journal she can continue to find encouraging messages. 
Being a teenager is hard enough, even more so when you are a follower of Christ. There's so many distractions for teens out there. So much more than I had back in my high school days so I understand that it's hard living out your faith and values as a teen which is why I'm excited that Sadie Robertson, a girl who lives out her faith, came out with this line for girls to remind them who they are in Christ. 

Find out more about Sadie Robertson's products on the Live Original Website and on the Dayspring Website as well. You can find Sadie's line at your local Wal-mart, Hobby Lobby, and Mardel's. If you've got a teen in your life who is going back to school soon, make sure to pick up a journal or a notebook and give them a little encouragement. You will sure make their day not just by gifting them something but by letting them know you were thinking of them.
