“Wendy, my team and I enjoyed being a part of the experience that you provide in constant effort to support, encourage, and inspire women to make them feel inside out. I definitely look forward to partnering with you on the BIG event! The ladies that came out were amazing! I have shared photos with my DM and she thought it was so wonderful that she also shared it with our Reginal. I thank you for all that you do and mostly for the amazing women that you are.”

I wanted to share this email I got from one of our staff about the session you held for us last week:
Thank you all soooo much for the opportunity to be a part of the Girlfriends Empowered Event last night. The youth absolutely loved it. It was so inspiring, and I think the intimate setting of the chapel contributed to that. We had 3 cottage youth and 2 shelter youth. It was a great experience for the shelter ladies to be in good spirits and around positive energy. They stated that they really appreciated the event, the dialogue, and the keepsakes that they received.

Thank you Wendy! I really love what you do and I look forward to your events every month. It’s such a ‘Break From The Norm!”!

“Recently I walked into a room filled with many women and at first I couldn’t locate the one woman I knew. Before any anxiety could rise up, I was embraced with warmth and love from the first moment I set foot into Wendy’s beautiful home. The entire experience was first class. From the quality of women I met to the amazing food. From the heartfelt, entertaining and fascinating speaker Pam Oliver to the heartfelt sharing around the big circle of women seated around the living room. By the end of the evening, I felt as though I was saying farewell to new friends. This incredible event speaks to the power of community and the deep desire in women it satisfies. Bravo to you Wendy!”
“I had a therapy appointment today. I came here tonight and felt better then I did when I left therapy. I felt welcomed and comfortable as soon as I walked in the door, and there was no one that I knew, except my girlfriend that I brought with me. It was a safe zone to express your feelings, and you didn’t feel like you were all alone”
“I needed every bit of tonight. Thank you for this!”
“Why do I love Girlfriends (GFs Empower) so much…
When I moved to Georgia and had to leave all my relationships behind. I was so focused on getting my kids acclimated, I didn’t realize for a few years how much I really missed my girlfriends back home. As I started to cultivate relationships here, having active children with sports, camps, school etc., I also began realized that I was missing that one on one time with the relationships I had been building here. We would all try to get together but someone always had something else to do. Having a planned GF’s event allowed me to get everyone in the same room, laugh, cry and learn with this fabulous group of women I call my Good Girlfriends. For a brief moment we are able to forget about everything and everyone else and focus on just us. We take so much time taking care of everyone else, we neglect ourselves and our own relationships. It’s time to stop putting us on the back burner! Everyone should have one of these at least once a month! You definitely feel empowered to go and do greater things and with more purpose. It’s a recharge to all aspects of life! The food is always great and the wine always adds extra life to the party. What an amazing experience! I can’t wait to do it again!!!
Thank you Wendy for doing this, it brings me life when I feel I don’t have one :-)!”

“I had the pleasure of attending my first GirlFriends event. I generally am somewhat uncomfortable in social settings where I don’t know anyone but from the moment I walked in the door all of the ladies made me feel welcome. I was pleasantly surprised by the intimacy of the conversation. Although most of the women did not already know one another everyone spoke freely and comfortably. By the end of the evening I felt like we were old friends. At the end of the event there were gifts, and I love winning, so much so that I blabbed some big news to my new girlfriends that not even my father knows yet. But it was awesome, all of the ladies hugged me and celebrated with me just as my long-time girlfriends would.”

“You are a blessing, seriously,you can change a lot of lives. You have a beautiful soul! It was an AWESOME experience!!”

“Gf’s founder Wendy Roberts vision has created an outlet for women to have an evening to celebrate each other, foster friendships and empower each other to succeed in goals or aspirations! As women we go 24/7 for our families, husbands, kids and work and this one evening is DEDICATED to us!”

“A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one’s heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.”
“I wanted to thank you for a great evening last Friday. It was really fun. In all honesty, it was above and beyond expectations. The ladies there were so beautiful and confident. I loved it. Let me not forget about the food. The food was excellent.
You rock Wendy. You are a natural and you know how to make a lady feel good.”
~Pascale Tata | Director of New Business Development
“Thank you so so much. That 100% made my night. I look forward to the next one!”
“Hi Wendy, I have enjoyed the two GF’s events that I have attended. They both were very informative, fun and up lifting . I had the privilege of meeting beautiful, smart, professional and fun women, which some have become my friends. The food, drinks, games and fellowship has been fun but what I think was the most fulfilling was the information and empowerment we drew from one another. I also love the idea of giving back to those who are in need.
Please continue to allow God to use you in this area because we are stronger together.
May God bless you and GF’s.”
~Rhonda Price | Working mom of three awesome children
“I was eagerly anticipating a night out surrounded by fabulous women, a beautiful environment, and delicious food, and I was not disappointed! I quickly felt right at home even though I knew only a couple of the women there. It’s that kind of environment where no one judges and everyone is there to support you and help in whatever way they can, whether it be through networking, giving suggestions, or just enjoying each others’ company for the evening. A bonus on an already wonderful evening is that a portion of what is collected goes to charity. I highly recommend attending a ‘Girlfriends Empower’ event!
Thank you, Wendy Roberts”
