What started from a service project now serves hundreds of young women each summer. In 2008, Carla Jorgensen and Debbie Forrest Dayton were asked to be in charge of the service project for Girls’ Camp. They had the girls make inspirational bracelets that would be donated to Fresh Start Women’s Foundation, where women in transition receive various services. As they planned the project, Carla and Debbie discussed another need. They talked about the fact that the girls themselves were facing incredible challenges and they also needed to feel hope and courage in their complicated teen years.
Out of that beginning, Time to Blossom was born.
Time to Blossom empowers young women with inner strength, courage, and confidence to reach their potential and find lasting happiness. Since our first conference in 2010, we have had eight, week-long conferences that have served over 1500 young women. During the conference, young women participate in interactive, integrative, and hands-on activities that stimulate their thinking to discover who they are, who they can become, what their goals can be, and how they can accomplish those goals. The program is tailored to accommodate a variety of topics that are spiritual, social, and educational, and also focus on inner beauty, outer beauty, and leadership, all taught by exceptional speakers who center their talks on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This unique program is based in Arizona, yet serves young women from all over the United States.
