large amount of my community service has come from being involved in
my church. I love helping out with the young children and helping
them to grow and learn, but one of my favorites is the Psalm 139
Ministries that my mother started this past year.
volunteer responsibilities vary throughout the course of the year
depending on what needs to be done. It ranges from the marketing side
of taking pictures and videos to post on social media, to picking up
and organizing the dresses, to creating tags and hanging up flyers.
of my favorite parts about this volunteer work is helping the girls
find a dress. When they come in they usually are a little shy and
nervous, and may not say much as they are sorting through the
dresses. The moment they come out of the dressing room with the dress
that they love, their face lights up. This is one of the best
feelings because they feel beautiful and confident, and I know that I
helped them to feel this way. They are so thankful and grateful for
all that we do. It
is such an amazing experience to be part of such a creative, new
ministry that I believe will touch many girls in a positive way.
reason I chose to do a project with the Psalm 139 ministry is because
my mother had this idea, and put it into action and created it with
the help of many others. I love to go dress shopping with my
mother, and the feeling of finding the dress I feel beautiful in, and
get to spend a night wearing it while having fun with friends and
making memories together. This ministry is not only giving
girls a dress to wear for maybe only one night, but it also gives
them the experience of finding the dress they love, feeling
beautiful, and making memories the night of the dance that they wear
that special dress. Knowing that I am a part of such a great
ministry that can bring such joy to many girls is a great feeling to
have. I want to show all of these young girls that they are loved and
beautiful. From the small aspects of writing out tags, to donating
some of my own dresses, I know that I have contributed to a special
night for multiple girls that hopefully will create memories that
will last a lifetime.
believe that my volunteer activities will make a difference because I
am helping these girls make memories, as well as helping this
ministry grow. Years from now, I believe that Psalm 139 Ministries
will be a huge success and will be touching the lives of many young
girls. I have learned that even the smallest of tasks make a huge
difference and the importance of giving back and the great feeling
that comes from it knowing I made a difference makes it all worth it.
