Leaders' Blog

You’ve got ideas. Good ideas. Helpful ideas. Ideas that can nurture girls and bring them deeper into a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus. And we want to hear them (and maybe share some of our own, too)! GEMS seeks to equip women and girls to live radically faithful lives—doing justice, loving mercy, and walking humbly with God.

With a sisterhood of over 5,400 women around the world serving in GEMS Clubs, we’ve created this blog as a place for you to get connected. This space is for you—as a GEMS counselor and mentor to girls. Interact, comment, add input, give feedback, and let us know what’s working for you in your work with your girls!
