Delight & Be™ is a community of young Christian women ages 16-22 who strive to glorify our Heavenly Father through the creative arts. We are a non-profit that is intentional about discipling young women and encouraging them to pursue the calling that God has placed within their hearts. We strive to express who our Creator is through the gifts and talents that He has given us, and to foster strong community as we grow together in them.
Delight & Be is an amazing place for girls to grow closer to God while using their talents He has given them. Over the past year and a half, Delight has made a huge impact on my life, and I'm sooo very thankful!
I met one of my best friends through Delight who lives in AK who I never would have met without this beautiful community! I have gone to 2 retreats and have seen mountains moved by God and through my sisters, his daughters. Delight is absolutely a true testament to choosing obedience towards God and I can't emphasize enough how much it means to so many people! The connections you make, the sisters you meet, and the experiences you gain from this small ministry is far greater than words can express. I thank God daily for these ladies and how He moves through them!
When I joined Delight, I thought it was simply going to be another FB group where I could learn from other creatives and maybe make a few connections with girls in my area. I can't believe how wrong I was- and wonderfully so! My Delight family and sisters have inspired me in my business, and helped me to grow in my walk with Jesus by praying for me, listening to me, sharing with and journeying with me! I came away from the October retreat so refreshed, and blessed to have sisters with hearts of gold all over the globe. Delight is so much more than just a group -- it's a Jesus-worshipping, others-loving community that I am grateful to be a part of!
I was at a lonely place in my life when I was introduced to Delight. I had no access to fellow Christians and no where to express my faith. I had tough questions and no where to ask them. Then I joined Delight and was welcomed with open arms. I made lifetime friendships and am encouraged by my sisters in Christ daily. Girls share the rawness of life and there is always someone there to come along side you, it is a beautiful thing.
I’ve been a part of Delight for four years now and it has greatly impacted my life. It has truly been one of the biggest blessings the Lord has given me. Through the journey, I’ve been able to meet so many dear friends who encourage me daily, grow in my passion for photography, adventure across the country to the beautiful mountains, and most importantly, know Jesus more. Delight has given me a better understanding of who Jesus is and that is the greatest gift of all.
When I first joined Delight it was an awesome place to connect with like minded girls but over the years it has turned into so much more than that. It's late night heart-to-hearts over ice cream on the floor at midnight, it's dance parties, it's pushing yourself creatively, it's friends that you know are the ones are going to stick around for the long run. The biggest things Delight has given me is a stronger walk with my Creator and the bestest of friends that I may not have been able to have met otherwise. I could never say thank you enough!
After going through a difficult time in my life, a friend added me to this wonderful group of young ladies. I never knew how much these 900+ girls would eventually impact my spiritual, emotional, relational, and creative life. In short, they have changed me inside and out and brought hope to my sadness, joy to my heart, and they always encourage my walk with Christ. With Delight & Be, I have gained countless friendships and developed my creative interests while also discovering God and doing life with these girls! I am so thankful for this community and creativity!
I was introduced to Delight 4 years ago and it's been nothing but a blessing every day since! The ladies in this group are amazing and it's truly like being part of a big sisterhood/family! Really, the love and support they show to one another is beautiful to behold. I've loved developing friendships, being creatively inspired, attending my first Retreat, and just being involved in any way I can. I'm grateful and so excited to see what God will continue to do through Delight and everyone apart of it.
Since becoming a part of Delight, I have had more opportunities for spiritual growth that I haven't been offered elsewhere. I have been blessed by hearing the testimonies of other girls and leaders, and been reminded that grace covers all. It is so refreshing to me how raw and real and relevant this group is. It's a reminder that nobody is perfect and it doesn't matter how messed up things around me seem, I don't have to hide my true self - I am still shown love, no matter what. Delight has been a sweet gift to me and I am truly thankful.
