I told Kelly because a lot of things, including a book written by the unlikely writer and so I guess first on our list or storm a little bit about American Heritage girls in your vision for that absolutely.
I can certainly Girl Scouts USA for 12 years as a leader for my three daughters in a 1993 a really crucial decision to no longer be in the thigh and the Girl Scout promise and so I started to investigate why would they teach that and I found out all whole agenda was very anti-Christian and I realize that I could no longer serve in my organization and be a Christian we could answer to God is of the Lord prompted me to just start something. I thought it would be very small and just for my daughter.
And here we are 27 years later, serving over 54,000 girls in every state in the country as well as 60 national country is what God does when he gets to picograms right person right to start something and people come along as you saw in the Girl Scouts yet, but here's this opportunity to mentor these young girls and opportunity to teach them things practically the same time have a fellowship for them. A community that would be. I know because I was a Boy Scout, like those are memories you will keep for the rest of your life scary influential right at any base of the right Brian Lawrence for not and so for us instead of girl power. We like to stress that the Holy Spirit's power in that girl is Christ and what infusion we do all the fun things Robbie did you remember from Boy Scout badges and outdoor experiences in service projects. We do all of those but with the Christ that makes all the difference becomes eternally expended and just temporally so covered, yes, I imagine the challenges that came oh my goodness, American Heritage girls like what the world what that and God walk through that many of the same time just to throw a wrench that you put your heart write a book. That's right, you know, COBIT was tough.
Charting the churches are part of their discipleship used girls and so when they're closed down eight closed unless we call American Heritage girls and so we had a lot of time on our hands. The Lord had been paying to write it down from Proverbs right after the next generations.
In this book Weichert you can light a candle is truly a story of my journey, a girl from Alcoholics Anonymous disabled sanitary dysfunctional childhood wanting functional child. Every girl out there and realizing that even though I am the many mistakes in my past and I did what God called me to do something like this, so I use every excuse why not this really chronicles the journey of discovery of growth in my faith walk of trusting God of allowing him to use me an understanding that he does not call me equipped eclipse the call. You just have to open your eyes to see, so that I experienced God calls you to write something like this and it takes you back in their own lives. Brian there are things that you had an opportunity to process that you have never really process right to consider little bit of your personal story has Robbie, I sent almost my whole lifetime trying to cover all that up I didn't want people to know me for my set and I had a matter of fact I had an unexpected.
I actually went to Planned Parenthood. Not knowing what he really planned. I feel your baby alright so I I've been through all of that and I believe the Lord brought me to this other side to be a testimony encouragement for all this out there like there less than God calls you, sure enough, she will supply it if you would lie on. So yes, it was very was very cheerful. It was very hurt. Ernest Hemingway said no. If you're not writing well. If you are bleeding on the paper I black I bled, I cried. It was I was embarrassed to show the first volume and then freedom chain because it was one more time. When he said, write it down and witness of this book is so many women has been extraordinary and I didn't expect it to be anything but obedient. I was just doing the right left right wow it's amazing so you got for the name of the title just jumps that right out after right like why curse the darkness just so apparently you have plenty. Oh yes oh yes it was a life that is not just my personal life, but also what I discovered about the Girl Scout here it is chronicled to Islam, for kids, married to my husband Girl Scouts USA trying to raise awareness about what cloaking it behind the tradition of Girl Scout girls now complicate and send. It chronicles a bit about that night. The depression and the loneliness that happens is that and they look at you in there like that girl you like following God's will it come back.
I cannot believe the fruits of the Lord has allowed me to experience in my lifetime of this effort to see 11 right now coming along to have my own granddaughter she's right on my lap.
She is an American got off just God is so good to drive running when you follow his will feel it's good to us, whether we are not there absolutely is.
I just think that's absolutely spectacular.
20 on this journey of living is brought to bear. Is there a chapter in this book are like Omar and I can hardly wait till they read this I believe it was the time of might be unclean like the Lloyd stated how he brought that and how he actually brought us. My husband and I at this point. Marriage because this really and 43 years later, that young lady that could've been avoided.
Now each part of this ministry writer (way better granddaughter and know that Tyler is my daughter but that's no granddaughter.
If there was on my daughter's speech I speak is so precious and so good. We just need to follow his word and that's what really resounded. I wasn't raised in state funding obligation. I thought I could rationalize away the Holy Spirit to let me go.
So here we are today and I'm able now to talk about that help others and I think there is a purpose for that.
So let's go there for a second if you don't mind this unplanned pregnancy and obviously her boyfriend at the time I was trying to figure out where we don't have the whatever you go to Planned Parenthood for about family. What were the you know your mom was struggling. Obviously hear that you got some issues. What happened with them. It was was horrible. Yes, one thing for sure, I love my boyfriend very much or I would. And we work through that. But I husband my boyfriend at the time was very very dedicated to Nike Mary because we are that later to be should never know. Let the pressure was like all you have to do it. I don't want her to feel like I married you got it quite interesting that tend to go home to my parents.
You have your own struggles and was mortifying.
It was horrible and here this ends up being their first child, and like I said the one that really said to me why curse the darkness with light a candle is alive and it wasn't at that time when I was ready when I was trying all the issues I was fighting the Girl Scout name to Melody that taught that sexuality was unexpected. Many people anywhere on that I knew from my own experiences.
That was a falsehood that you need to have a moral right and wrong about sexuality and that's what you all the best take to get my discernment level and I my dad after he many things about Patty knew what my heavenly father that I had some acumen.
It anything. Why curse the darkness and like to start something you can do it for less. Imagine the book might be called why curse the darkness in general by Patty Garibay try to say right again. But again, American Heritage girls, but how you got up off your page how to do from anywhere Amazon whenever I also have a site about it. Why curse the darkness.com you can also reach it to American Heritage girls.org and by the way, really cool and eco-nonbloody therapy to talk about it. It's I raising the girls when they turn 25.
It was really exciting time. It was coded so we had to cancel not only our girl convention which is a big big party that we love and I had time to write a book, but also we thought we wanted to get a gift back to the beach. Those families who may not be part of American Heritage girls give them biblical worldview truths that would help them raise up the girls in the radiation and so we developed a separate meeting on the girls radiometric country on over thousand radio stations.
At this time but also leave a blog this dive deeper site American Heritage. Work you'll find a pop up.
