Girl Scout Cookies: A Delicious Way to Help Girls Grow and Learn

Girl Scout Cookies & National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend: Selling cookies teaches girls essential entrepreneurial skills that benefit them both now and in their future careers. The inclusive, all-girl environment of a Girl Scout troop creates a safe space where they can try new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles, and simply be themselves. Purchasing cookies is an investment in girls and their leadership, both now and in their future careers. #GirlScouts #GirlScoutCookies

Girls in the Boy Scouts of America?

Girls in the Boy Scouts of America? Maybe they just need to change it to Scouts of America? Maybe combine elements from both the Girl Scouts of American and the Boy Scouts of America. That would change the rank and badge systems and more. But the Scouting movement has always been gender specific … Boy Scouts – Boy & Girl Scouts – Girl!

Hiking Safety

Hiking Safety – Hiking can be enjoyed even by novice outdoor enthusiasts, this rewarding activity also can be dangerous. Hikers often find themselves in remote locations where cellular phone signals tend to be weak, which can be troublesome, even when hiking in relatively crowded parks. That’s why it’s important to take the following precautionary measures when hiking. #Hiking #HikingSafety

Isaiah 40:31 - But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Eagle)
