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

For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed (Malachi 3:6 KJV).

Father, in the name of Jesus, we thank You for this, another day, that You have allowed us to see and be a part of! Father, with ALL that is going on in the world today, oh how grateful we are that You are constant! You said in Your word that You change not! You are so, so true to Your word! Oh, but if we would only take heed to Your word! Your word will not not fulfill what it was sent out to do. It is written, So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it (Isaiah 55:11 KJV). Thank You for being constant!

Father, forgive us! We, Your people called by Your name, have turned from You in so many ways but Father, we repent and turn back to You humbling ourselves and seeking Your face so that You can forgive our sins and heal this land (2nd Chronicles 7:14)! Lord, heal the land! You said that if WE lift You up, You will draw all men to Yourself (John 12:32) so, right now Father, we lift up the name of Jesus! The only name by which men must be saved (Acts 4:12)!

Father, I pray that as You have given FOCUSED Ministries the awesome honor and opportunity to share in prayer with these, Your people, that they first feel Your love for them. I pray that OUR love for them shines through as well as we offer prayer on their behalf and serve them through giving. And as You have blessed me, Father, to be connected to everyone on this prayer list in one way or another, I pray that they feel MY love for them as well!

As we continue in this season, Father, I thank You for Your mercy, that we do not deserve, and for Your grace, that gives us chance after chance after chance to listen, take heed, and receive Your word. Bless each family You have blessed us to reach, near and far. It is because of You that we are here for Your own purpose and by design to be a blessing. Thank You for hearing and answering prayer, in Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen!!

Our weekly prayer...

Good afternoon, Lord! Today, we come before You with hearts full of thanksgiving and gratefulness. We have so many reasons to praise You beginning with Your grace by which we are saved through faith - a gift that we do not deserve but embrace with a great big Hallelujah to You, our God! As we move through the day, we pray for boldness to serve You, engage in kingdom work, and shine the light of Your glory wherever we go and before whomever we encounter. Your Word encourages and teaches us in 2 Timothy 1:7 that You have not given us a spirit of timidity but of power, love, and discipline (NASB). We stand on this, Your Word, today. When our flesh struggles with the worry, fear, and anxiety that are rampant in the world, we will choose to believe You and declare with the blessed assurance that these things are not of God and therefore, reject them in the Name of Jesus. As a matter of fact, we reject every lie of the enemy and instead, believe You.

As Your children, we claim the power of the Holy Spirit and ask that You would fill us up, Lord, that we might be empowered to go forth and bear much fruit. We pray for this power to do the work You have called us to for FOCUSED so that we will be prepared to serve the young people You have sent us and will send us. We pray that the work of this ministry would bless all that are touched by it - the young people as well as the older people. We pray that FOCUSED will continue to bear fruit and that this fruit will multiply as those called to do and support this work, yield to Your power. We pray that Your power, love, and self-discipline will reign in every part of our lives for Your glory and honor.

We surrender this day along with its concerns and burdens to You. We thank You for continuing to bless and keep us. We thank You for grace and mercy. We thank You for the provision that is more than enough. Thank You for claiming us as Your own. Thank You for the privilege of relationship with You. Thank You for the victorious life in Jesus! Help us to walk in the love, power, and self-discipline that is ours because You said so.

In the Name of Jesus, we pray and go forth in boldness,
