American Heritage Girls Celebrates Women’s History Month: “We Are Image-Bearers of God”

AHG Plans a Weeklong Celebration of Learning and Prayer

March 8, 2021

CINNCINATI, Ohio American Heritage Girls (AHG, http://www.americanheritagegirls.org),  understands that in a world wrought with difficulty, girls need positive influences, a spirit of hope and most importantly, God in their lives. With this in mind, AHG will host the Women’s History Month Event March 8 – 12 for their members, so young girls may discover how women of the past and girls of today can make a difference for Christ. Each day of the event will feature themed activities, with special presentations throughout the week on the AHG YouTube Channel.

Women are to be treasured and celebrated because, “God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:27, NIV) According to American Heritage Girls, “Women made in the image of God are image-bearers. When you see yourself and others as image-bearers – reflecting heaven on earth – you can be moved to celebrate how God uniquely made women, how He redeems and restores women in Christ, and how God works in and through women to show His goodness and character in the world.”

AHG provided its members with a weeklong planning calendar of Women’s History Month activities, which includes daily devotionals, prayers, virtual connections via the AHG YouTube Channel, and the “Silhouette Step” activity, which is an art project demonstrating to the AHG members that God made them an image-bearer to reflect Him.

 Corresponding with the activities is a focused daily theme:

  • Monday, March 8 – Identity in Christ (faith emphasis)
  • Tuesday, March 9 – Influential Women from the Bible (leadership emphasis)
  • Wednesday, March 10 – Important Historical Women (life skills emphasis)
  • Thursday, March 11 – Investing Positively in Female Friendships (social emotional emphasis)
  • Friday, March 12 – Impacting History Through Service (citizenship emphasis)

American Heritage Girls was founded by a group of parents wanting a faith-based, scout-type character development program for their daughters in 1995. The AHG Program is dedicated to the mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. American Heritage Girls across the nation and the globe participate in badge programs, service projects, leadership opportunities, and outdoor experiences, all with an emphasis on Christian values and family involvement.

In addition to the biblically-based parenting advice shared in the Heritage Headlines Winter 2021 issue and Raising Godly Girls blog and radio features, the American Heritage Girls Program provides a community experience in a Troop setting. Girls benefit from Christ-centered friendships and mentors to assist them in becoming Godly girls.

Today there are Troops in all 50 states and in 15 countries around the world through the Trailblazer Program. A variety of Christian denominations are also represented as Charter Organizations for Troops. There are thousands of volunteer members across the country helping girls to grow in their faith, cultivate a heart for service, enjoy the great outdoors, and have more fun than they can imagine.
