Secure Identity for Girls with Patti Garibay Flourish-Meant: You Were Meant to Live Abundantly

    • Christianity

How do we help girls develop a secure identity?
Today's guest, Patti Garibay, guides us toward supporting healthy and secure identity for girls so they can pay forward a heritage of truth-centered confidence. Patti Garibay is the Founder and Executive Director of American Heritage Girls, a national Christ-centered leadership and character development program. She is also the author of "Why Curse the Darkness When You Can Light a Candle?"
Garibay shares the challenges today's generation faces regarding identity and security. We discuss how parents and programs like American Heritage Girls can present truth-founded boundaries in a loving and welcoming environment. Patti describes faith as a way of life and interacting with others. She confirms the need for girls to cultivate a worldview and faith of their own instead of depending only upon their parents' standards.
Patti expresses her passion to help girls access the security and truths she wished she could have had herself as a young girl. 
We discuss the need for girls to access in-person opportunities to interact with peers in order to cultivate healthy neurological and social development. 
Patti and I also emphasize the importance of creating an ongoing, open conversation with kids about how they feel and what they're facing. Patti recommends praying for a calm spirit when entering into a discussion so parents don't react in a way that discourages kids from sharing with them in the future.
