The Real You
The Real You was created from my desire for all our girls to really know WHO they are in Jesus, and that the ‘real’ us is “hidden with Christ in God”
We often place far too much importance on the things that are seen and obvious, without realising the potential that lies in ‘the real’ us.
In late 2016 I was praying and reading in Colossians 3, asking Jesus to show me what he wanted to say to the female expression of our church.
At Everyday Champions, our message for years has been “There is More in You Than You Think” and I wanted it to
echo that in everything. Colossians 3 in The Message Version says,
Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life—even though invisible to
spectators—is with Christ in God. He is your life. When Christ (your real life, remember)
shows up again on this earth, you’ll show up, too—the real you, the glorious you.
Meanwhile, be content with obscurity, like Christ.
And so “The Real You” began.
Real You Nights
Girls love getting together! And what better way of coming together than over food and coffee with real girls and real stories, looking to discover together who we really are? Our Real You Nights are based in your local Everyday Champions Community every few months, because we don’t want to just wait for our annual Real You conference to be together! Why don’t you join us for an evening of fun, connecting to your Real You family and get on board this journey on discovery of The Real You? Head over to your community page to find out when the next one is happening near you.
Real Girls Pray
As part of The Real You, we launched our prayer initiative called ‘Real Girls Pray’ where we encourage girls to connect with their Real You family by praying for each other and the real situations we face daily. Prayer is an ongoing conversation with God where we grow in intimacy with Him, but it is also a weapon God gives us which has the power to bring transformation for any person and in any situation. Prayer is the way we see barriers broken down to prepare the way for God to speak. Prayer is the way we grow an atmosphere of faith for miracles to happen and mountains to be moved. Jesus says in John 16:23-24 (The Message) This is what I want you to do: Ask the Father for whatever is in keeping with the things I’ve revealed to you. Ask in my name, according to my will, and he’ll most certainly give it to you. Your joy will be a river overflowing its banks!
So today we invite you to join Real Girls Pray. We would love you to join together with us in making a difference to your world.
