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!

Blessings,

Trish, Executive Director

For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves [merely] as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give us the Light of the knowledge of the glory and majesty of God [clearly revealed] in the face of Christ. But we have this precious treasure [the good news about salvation] in [unworthy] earthen vessels [of human frailty], so that the grandeur and surpassing greatness of the power will be [shown to be] from God [His sufficiency] and not from ourselves (2 Corinthians 4:5-7 AMP).

Oh great and awesome God, thank You for the Light of the World, Jesus Christ! Thanks be to You, oh God, for the good news proclaimed in the Word!

We are pressured in every way [hedged in], but not crushed; perplexed [unsure of finding a way out], but not driven to despair; hunted down and persecuted, but not deserted [to stand alone]; struck down, but never destroyed; always carrying around in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be shown in our body. For we who live are constantly [experiencing the threat of] being handed over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be evidenced in our mortal body [which is subject to death] (2 Corinthians 4:8-11 AMP).

We thank You God for the life, sacrifice, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ! The ONE who gave HIS life that we might live! He is Emmanuel — God with us and therefore we KNOW that we are never forsaken or without our CHIEF INTERCESSOR!

So physical death is [actively] at work in us, but [spiritual] life [is actively at work] in you. Yet we have the same spirit of faith as he had, who wrote in Scripture, “ I believed, therefore I spoke .” We also believe, therefore we also speak, knowing that He who raised the Lord Jesus will also raise us with Jesus and will present us [along] with you in His presence. For all [these] things are for your sake, so that as [God’s remarkable, undeserved] grace reaches to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of [our great] God (2 Corinthians 4:12-15 AMP).

We thank You God for Your GRACE and MERCY! We BELIEVE and we will testify of Your goodness ALL THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES! Help us Lord, to be bold as we proclaim who You are! For our testimonies glorify You, God, the one who has always loved us!

Therefore we do not become discouraged [spiritless, disappointed, or afraid]. Though our outer self is [progressively] wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day by day. For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable. (2 Corinthians 4:13-18 AMP).

JESUS, You are the author and finisher of our faith! Therefore we will NOT grow weary in well-doing! We will continue to press toward the mark! Thanks be to God! Amen!

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV).

To put this verse into context, it is not a verse that promises that things will always go well but is a promise that when you do go through hard times or suffering, trust in God to deliver you through whatever it might be.

Lord, we pray that as FOCUSED Ministries is growing and evolving that we will continue to trust in you, Lord, no matter the circumstance. We pray that You continue to guide the leadership in directions that glorify You and in doing so, that those young women who are touched by this ministry are sent on a path of righteousness that will lead their families and friends to a meaningful relationship with You, Lord. We pray that this ministry will continue to grow and that the future of this ministry is to not only be a refuge for young women, but for young men as well. Heavenly Father, we pray that You continue to bless this ministry, those involved with it, and those that are yet to come. We pray these things in Jesus' holy and precious name, Amen.
