As America recognizes Pride Month and continues to attempt to indoctrinate children with a liberal, pro-LGBTQ agenda, American Heritage Girls remains rooted in biblical truths and proudly stands up for God-anointed, God-driven femininity.

One of the world's largest Christian, scout-type organizations, American Heritage Girls has long focused on building young women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. AHG accomplishes this through hands-on badge programs, service projects, leadership opportunities, outdoor adventures, virtual connections and more, all while stressing Christian values and family participation across its many programs for girls.

In order to give parents, teachers and leaders a guide through the modern maze of gender and identity, AHG is proudly releasing "A Raising Godly Girls Guide to Gender and Identity."

The groundbreaking guide provides tools parents can use to understand society's attitude towards gender and applies biblical truth highlighting the beauty in the differences between men and women. From preparing hearts for difficult conversations to reviewing a glossary of key gender terms and how they are used, parents will come away with a set of tools and exercises to begin this important conversation with their girls.

This resource meets parents right where they are, combining scriptural wisdom with AHG's proven track record of 26-plus years of working with families to raise godly girls.

"For centuries, the beauty of God-given femininity has been under attack, its definition debated, its behavior contested," AHG founder and Executive Director Patti Garibay says. "Secular humanism has attempted to destroy the beautiful model of femininity and transform it into an equal model to masculinity. Today, it has gone one step further to claim an embrace of non-binary sexual identity. With all this confusion in our society, it is no wonder that this debate has filtered down to our youngest members: our children. This is no coincidence. Satan is in for the long haul.

"God-given femininity requires no debate," she adds. "It is a gift that, when freely accepted, will bless a woman throughout her life whether she wears heels and loves shopping or whether she serves the hungry in her jeans and comfy t-shirt."

Garibay continued, "As Christians, we must engage in this discussion. Scripture is clear: There is a difference between male and female, and it is worth celebrating! Scripture defines the true nature of a woman: relational, nurturing, vulnerable, with a love for beauty and a desire to respond. God-given femininity is a gift that, when freely accepted, will bless a woman throughout her life. Every girl can become a Christ-following servant leader who is honoring, anchored in Christ and competent—a woman of integrity."

The comprehensive guide teaches parents and leaders the truth surrounding the conversation about gender, then prepares readers with the necessary Bible verses and steps to address these issues with girls. The guide also provides activities and resources to create alternative methods for parents to discuss the topic of identity and gender.

American Heritage Girls was founded in 1995 by a group of parents who wanted this faith-based, scout-type character development program for their daughters. At AHG, girls ages five to 18 meet together as a single Troop at the same time and then break out into Units by Levels. This gives AHG girls the important social experience of interacting with friends and godly mentors of various ages; members also learn leadership skills within a group setting. AHG Troops are located in local communities across the nation. If none exists in a given area, families can bring the AHG Program to their own area. An American Heritage Girls Troop Development Coach is available to provide resources to potential Charter Organizations and other families to form a new Troop.

The "Raising Godly Girls" radio feature and Raising Godly Girls blog shares guidance and biblically based advice on many key topics affecting girls today—from bullying and identity to anxiety and body image issues. It gives parents, educators, and faith community leaders a set of tools, resources, and Scripture-based advice to assist in raising girls after God's own heart. The "Raising Godly Girls Minute" with Patti Garibay airs on 900+ Christian radio stations across the country.
