Time to Blossom Photo shoot with I am Michelle Gifford
Speaking at Time to Blossom Young Women’s Conference has been my dream for a year. When I found out about them and their mission to help young women know they are beautiful daughters of God, understand their self-worth, realize their divine mission, and discover their powerful potential to make a difference in the world, I knew this was the place for me.
Celebrating divine nature and individual worth is exactly why I started my non-profit, Beauty Revived, three years ago. Real beauty doesn’t come from what we wear or the size of our jeans. Real beauty comes from our service to our community, our strength in trials and our kindness to others.
So, when I was asked to speak to the 250 girls at the conference this year, I was thrilled. This was the biggest group of girls that I had spoken to. I learned a lot. There are some things I will be improving on for next time I give this speech, but over all I felt a peace that I delivered the message I was supposed to. I learned that God can use an imperfect mouth piece like me to share his message. And that is humbling.
While there, I did a photo shoot with the blog girls from Time to Blossom. These girls each blog once or twice a month to teach and help young women and young adult women become better.
Let me introduce you to them. Here’s our Time to Blossom Photo shoot with I am Michelle Gifford
Tiffany Cook is the fashion expert for the Blossom Team. She is a certified Fashion Stylist and professional wardrobe consultant. She has styled for commercial video projects and photo shoots, coordinated fashion shows, and helped women of all ages discover their own personal style.
Aubrey Kashiwagi will be inspiring girls to strengthen their spiritual side. She is passionate about a few things: motherhood, living a healthy lifestyle, and creativity.
Ashley Johnson is the Blossom’s happiness enthusiast. She loves trying new recipes, being a mom, singing loud in the car, and ending the day with a walk around town.
Melissa is a wife, mom to two beautiful, adopted children, coach, Arizona weightlifting record holder, ultra marathon runner, and lover of ice cream. She loves helping others find joy in physical activity and watching as her athletes accomplish their goals.
Rhea Maynes is the Blossom Team’s teacher of success principles. She is a lover of style and science. Rhea graduated from BYU in 2013 at age 20, majoring in Neuroscience and minoring in Psychology, with plans to join the medical field. After choosing another career path, she began pursuing finance and now works for Goldman Sachs in Investment Management.
Gabrielle is a Blossom’s relationship expert, makeup artist, selfie queen who lives with her husband/best friend in Arizona, though she desperately wishes she lived in Disneyland.
As you can see, each of these girls brings different talents and expertise. They each give their time and talents to help girls reach their full potential. When amazing women get together, they can change the world. I feel so blessed to be with them for a day.
