Just in case you do not know what AHG is I am going to link you to a post from when I first got involved and I will then add what I have since learned if anything (after I myself reread the old post-- it is amusing to do sometimes.)
Here is the lnk-- Jumping into the deep end; hope I can swim
Correction for above. It has come to my attention-- read the comments below-- that there was no, lawsuit involved and it was NOT Girl Scouts who asked us to stop using certain words, it was BSA. Now, I have no idea why, and will not stick my foot in my mouth again acting on assumptions. All I know is we are a Christ centered, character developement program who partners with the Boy Scouts of America-- well some troops at least. Not all trrops partenr with them... I don't know, but it is really not the point here. The point is beware of the GSUSA even if they were not behind the taking the word "scout" out of our description.They are misleading parents into supporting some very non-Biblical propaganda and agendas.
Check these out if you do not believe me!
The American Heritage Girls is as we are legally allowed to say, "A Christ centered character building program that partners with the Boy Scouts of America." It offers all of the outdoor experience, badge earning experiences, and service projects that would come from the GSUSA only with Christ and a relationship with Christ at it's heart. The girls promise at each meeting to Love God, cherish their family, honor their country and serve in their community. This program builds women of Godly integrity at all ages from Kindergarten up. The maximum age to be an American heritage Girl is 18, but after that they can become junior leaders and the adult leaders. I can promise you that not only are the girls being held accountable in the Godly integrity department.
So anyhow, I just thought I would share this and ask for prayers for my safe return, my girls safe return and for Ernie to get as much cave time in as he can while we girls are away! I think we will all have very interesting and unique stories to tell when we reunite with one another in 5 days.
Now off to finish packing!
