Workshop Details

Girls Embracing Truth is teaming up with Elyssa’s Mission to bring a workshop to help you identify the signs of suicide so you can know how to respond when someone you care about is struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts.

Suicide is the 2nd leading cause for death among adolescents today (and rising in many states). Teenage girls are at an even higher risk than boys to struggle with suicidal thoughts and depression.

Every mom, youth leader, teacher, mentor, junior high girl, high school girl and youg adult woman will benefit from becoming aware of the real struggle of suicide and hope that overcomes.

Invite others to this workshop and be part of standing together and becoming equipped and aware of a real battle youth are facing in today’s culture.

Meet Kelly Vance

Profile Picture of Kelly Vance, founder of Girls Embracing Truth.

Being a mom has amazing moments, and it also has its full share of fear and heartache.  Daughters, we see what you face and we love you!  This world seeks to lure both moms and daughters into a path that is devastating and destructive.  We need each other and we need to be reminded and encouraged in the truth of God’s Word and our identity in Jesus Christ.  This Girls Embracing Truth ministry exists because we need each other!  God has stirred in my heart the vision of the Girls Embracing Truth ministry. We brought together a few moms, along with my daughter. We are faith filled and crazy enough to launch a ministry focused on Embracing Truth because we are passionate to equip and encourage moms and daughters to thrive!

I am married to Mike for over 26 years and mom to Kristal, 24 and Jennifer, 21.  I’ve got a full out passion and obsession with God’s Word and getting it practicality lived out in our lives.  Jesus is the only way we can have security and life that is abundant!  My prayer is that ministry points all of you to Him!
