GirlsFOCUSED Mentoring Group

GirlsFOCUSED is a faith-based mentoring program serving the Chicagoland area. Our organization is motivated by God’s love to serve, support, and love young girls. Our purpose is to help young girls between the ages of 13-18 achieve excellence across all life areas through our 1:1 mentoring program and quarterly group activities.

  • We "keep it real" and relevant for this current generation without pushing a “religious agenda”
  • We are a resource for families, providing another layer of support because it truly “takes a village”

If you want to learn more about GirlsFOCUSED and/or want to enroll a young lady, you are invited to attend our first parent meeting. We look forward to seeing you there! You may also contact us for more information.

"There are so many great things about GirlsFOCUSED, I barely even know where to start. First, Dr. Baker, Mrs. Murray, and every person on the GirlsFOCUSED board are so incredibly committed. They strive to help young women succeed in life by giving us an opportunity to have a relationship with God. What I love is that the founders of this organization make us girls feel like we are their number one, but what I love even more is that we actually aren't-- God is..."

From the desk of the Executive Director:

Greetings on behalf of FOCUSED Ministries, Inc.,

We are so pleased that God has led you to this site. In doing so, He has opened a door and provided an opportunity for us to introduce ourselves to you as to who we are and what we do.

We are a non-profit organization with the simple but awesome mission: to help young women achieve excellence. Like other social service programs, we strive to address multiple facets of life, however, we are different. We are motivated by a God-given burden to love and a deep desire to embrace and lift up all of our young sisters. We are unashamedly faith-based and all of our work is grounded in Scripture.

At FOCUSED, we understand that life is often a bumpy journey. As we travel along the road of life, God allows certain paths to intersect for the specific purpose of building relationships. It is through the blessing of relationship with one another that we are strengthened. With God in our midst, the strengthened are also then empowered to achieve excellence. This is our testimony and we want it to be yours, too. We believe you were created to be excellent in all things. We want you to also believe this truth and live excellently!

We invite you to seek us out and make a connection that just might be life changing!
God Bless You!


Trish, Executive Director

What shall I render to the LORD for all His benefits toward me? I will take up the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the LORD. I will pay my vows to the LORD now in the presence of all His people (Psalm 116: 12-14, NKJV).

I heard this story…
On a bus one day, a man gave up his seat to a woman. His act of kindness so shocked the lady, she fainted. She wasn’t accustomed to such kindness. When the lady was revived, she thanked the man for his kindness. Her gratitude so shocked him, he fainted. Neither the man, nor the woman, were used to gracious, kind, and grateful people and were shocked by their expressions.

Just a thought: I wonder if God would be shocked if today we stopped grumbling and complaining about our family, a spouse, our job, our children, our neighbors, our country, or some other issue or challenge and just took some time and made an effort to simply tell Him “thank You” for all the blessings He’s provided us with?

Lord, Jesus, we just want to thank You for loving us so much that You sent Your Son to be sin for us so that we might live with You forever. Thank You, Father, for the numerous ways that You demonstrate Your love, protection, and provision. We pray that we may have an attitude of gratitude towards You and those around us in all we say and do, so that You are praised and glorified in our lives, in the name of Jesus Christ we pray, AMEN.

Our weekly prayer...

Then the LORD appeared to Solomon by night and said to him: “I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. For now, I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually. As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you keep My statutes and My judgments, then I will establish the throne of your kingdom, as I covenanted with David your father, saying, ‘You shall not fail to have a man as ruler in Israel (2 Chronicles 7:12-18 NKJV).

Father God, in the name of Jesus, I come before You today with praise and thanksgiving on my lips. I stand in adoration for all that You have done and continue to do in the lives of Your people. I say Hallelujah, which is the highest praise because of who You are. When we rise each morning, new mercies we receive. Great is thy faithfulness, O Lord. You’ve spoken everything into existence from the heavens to the earth. You reign on the throne, God! You are the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. No one or nothing can compare to You. Great and mighty are You, Lord. We bless You on today and give You honor.

God, I come before Your throne asking You to move on behalf of the issues that are going on in the world. I know that there is nothing too hard for You and You can do anything but fail us, O Lord. Just as You spoke to Solomon, speak to Your people today. We are Your people and the sheep of Your pasture. We come today with humble hearts and laying prostrate at Your feet, praying and seeking Your face. You said in Your word (Jeremiah 29:12-13), then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart (NIV). God, I am asking that You hear the cries of Your people and answer us. I pray on today, that we begin to turn from our wicked and sinful ways and have a true heart of repentance unto You, Lord. Forgive our sins and the sins of this world. Wash us in the Blood of Jesus and make us new creatures. I pray that we begin to walk in unity and love for one another. God, begin to heal the land, from the east to west, north to the south. Lord God, let Your spirit move on the face of the earth just as You did in Genesis. Heal us from all manner of sickness, disease, mental illness, and anything that may be hindering Your people. God, I believe and know You can and will do it. We are victorious because of Christ Jesus!

Lord, I thank You for hearing and answering this prayer today. We stand ready to receive miracles signs and wonders. We will forever give You all the praise, glory, and honor, in Jesus' name I pray and say...AMEN!
