This past week I received the extremely exciting news that I have officially been accepted as an intern at The Keeler’s Women Center for this upcoming summer! The past couple months have been spent in prayer asking the Lord to offer direction and guidance in my search for an internship, and I am so excited and relieved that He has provided such an amazing opporunity. The Keeler Women’s Center, located in downtown Kansas City, seeks to wholistically serve women in the urban core of KC in which they provide a number of different services and programs to do so. Some of these services include free counseling; English tutoring; spiritual formation classes; education on parenting, nutrition, and other subjects; care packages; a food pantry; and various clubs such as book clubs and knitting clubs. They are purposeful in serving these women from all different facets and I am so exctied to be able to be involved in each of these programs. In learning more about what God has called me to do in regards to a career or vocation, I know that he has created a passion wtihin me for coming alonside and advocating for women and that I really thrive off one-on-one time with others. In playing off of those 2 extremely vague ideas, I am praying that God would direct me through this internship and help me gain a better understanding of what He has called me to do at least for the near future. Needless to say, I am absoluley stoked about the learning that will take place this summer and for God to shape me through this experience!
Kind of going along with this and also going back to this passion I have to advocate for women, I found this video on facebook and had to share. The Dove Campaign has been promoting the following video in an effort to continue to foster healthy perceptions of beauty amongst women. It is extremely interesting and moving and I would highly recommend that you take a few moments to watch.
