We just launched another #SmallThingsMatter campaign!
Courageous Girls, in partnership with Because International, is raising money to send The Shoe That Grows to refugee children and families around the world!
In our last #SmallThingsMatter campaign, our global CG community was able to raise funds for 265 pairs of The Shoe That Grows! Our goal as a CG Community for this #SmallThingsMatter campaign is to purchase 350 pairsof The Shoe That Grows for refugee children and families in need by August 10th! Are you in?
Choose one of the 3 options:
1. Pray about donating directly as a family.
2. Connect with your CG group and see how the CG girls might innovate and fundraise this month. Challenge the group to purchase 1-10 pairs of shoes.
3. Tag a friend and share this vision. The more the merrier.
Adonia Mattson, one of the original Courageous Girls and eldest daughter of CG Founder’s Jeff and Terra Mattson, shares some ideas on how to spend time during this summer of simplicity. Courageous Girls and their mamas will find inspiration on how to appreciate this unique COVID19 summer season. Whether your daughter is an adventurer, creator, reader, artist, or athlete, you will find unique book recommendations, crafts, and activities.
Have you heard CG co-founder Terra Mattson reference her hard-wiring from the Core Value Index (CVI) and wondered what your Core Values were? In case you were wondering, Terra is a Merchant-Innovator. The CVI is a valuable assessment that helps us all understand how God designed us in a practical and empowering way. During this summer of simplicity, this would be a great assessment to implement into a mama retreat or a summer meet up. Having the mamas in your CG group not only understand their greatest contributions to the group, motherhood, and their families can be a catalyst for thriving CG groups, family relationships, and friendships. If you would like to learn more or take the CVI, visit the link below. If you would like to have one of our CG coaches lead a retreat/training, email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
As you think about Courageous Girls, who comes to mind? Do you have a friend or know someone in your neighborhood or church that has a daughter and heard you share about the CG Movement? Would you be willing to serve as a “CG Mentor Mama” for this woman that God has placed into your life and help her walk through learning about Courageous Girls and what it takes to start a group? The CG Movement is unlike any other mom/daughter community. Walking alongside a new CG mama as they pray about leading and starting a group is a beautiful example of Jesus’ leadership style. He walks with and then empowers.
Perhaps you are the one who heard about Courageous Girls from another mom, or are planning to participate with your daughter when she is a little older, or you are praying and planning for your group to start this year. We know starting a Courageous Girls group can feel daunting at first, especially during this COVID19 Pandemic, so we have provided a 5-Step Plan to help you take the first steps.
Pray for God’s wisdom as to whom could co-lead a group with you and/or invite into the group. They may not be the women who first come to mind. You may not know someone well, but see her at school or church and you sense a prompting to just ask. Trust God as He puts women on your heart while you prepare and pray.

Courageous Girls provides the opportunity to speak one-on-one with one of our Leadership Coaches via phone. All of our coaches are personally leading their own CG group and trained in the Core Values Index (used throughout the curriculum). Our Leadership Coaches have also been specifically trained to be a safe and trustworthy resource for you. Walking alongside other moms and their girls has unique challenges and our coaches are passionate about supporting you as you walk alongside them. Though our website is full of FREE resources to get you launched well, we also offer more in-depth trainings, coaching, and incentives for our CG Partners. We have many more to come.
Our Courageous Girls Leadership Team wants to link arms with you through prayer and be a resource as questions or concerns arise. Feel free to reach out to our team at email@example.com.
We are praying over you as you step into starting your own CG group and we know God will help you each step of the way. We are in this with you as we all commit to raising daughters rooted in God's grace and abundant love.
