Grab your girlfriends
& join us for this done-for-you GNO!
Just like any great girl’s night, you’ll enjoy laughter, wine and hors d’oeuvres, but you’ll wake up the next morning refreshed, with more clarity, feeling more connected, and inspired to be more intentional about becoming the woman you know you’re meant to be, with a tribe of women who have your back, right by your side.
You’re working your tail off to be the most amazing mother, wife, friend and contributor to this world you possibly can. And sometimes you feel discouraged when you can’t keep all those plates spinning as fast as you’d like.
Girl, it can be exhausting.
On top of that, as much as you’d love to get time with your girlfriends and feel like you’re investing something in yourself, who has the time (or energy) to plan & coordinate a night out?
It’s easy for women like us to chalk it up to being a season of life we just have to endure. Like putting your dreams and
desires on the back burner is just part of the deal at this stage in the game.
But you know you’re meant for more.
We don’t believe you’re meant to simply endure any season of your life! And we won’t sit back and watch so many beautiful, smart, talented women continue to isolate themselves from very the relationships that have the power to give them the most strength.
It’s time to bring more fun and meaningful connection back to this season of your life.
It’s entirely possible to live your crazy-busy life with purpose and a lot more joy. But it all hinges on connection. You have to get reconnected to yourself and your closest girlfriends, and have fun doing it! That’s why we created a fresh new spin on a Girl’s Night Out.
It’s like a mini retreat in the middle of your week.
It’s not a typical GNO that will leave you feeling bad the next morning. And it’s not a networking event filled with surface conversations. It’s an experience where you’ll feel surrounded by friends, with huge hearts, who are passionate about figuring out what they’re meant to do in this world, and supporting each other in making it happen!
Today, you can draw a line in the sand to say, It’s time for me.
OR you can keep telling yourself, It’s a season, until you look back and realize. . .
It was your life.
“Bravehearted Cookie GNO”
February 7, HeartStories GNO
My name is Christie Halverson. I am a mom of three kids and married to the most supportive man I’ve ever known. We have been married for almost 25 years and have lived in seven states together. We moved to Texas six years ago and have loved living here in Frisco.
I have been a baker my entire life. As a little girl, I dreamed of one day owning a bakery, but never actually imagined it coming true.
Three years ago, when my oldest was getting ready to leave the nest, I knew it was time to start figuring out what I wanted to do post-motherhood. I had spent 18 years as a stay-at-home mom and wondered if there were any options out there for me. I began baking out of my home and slowly grew a hobby into a full-time cookie business. I opened the doors of The Cookie Rack in November and have loved seeing my dreams come to life. The Cookie Rack is a cookie bakery, soda shop, and Cookie School.
Hey Girl, I’m Crystal. I’m just crazy enough to believe, that in the busy ever-changing seasons of your life, you can be encouraged & connected with other women, in a way that will help you replace the negative stories that sometimes hold you back. So you can show up boldly, to live the story only you can live.
With more joy, more connection, more purpose, and a whole lot more fun!
I’m a wife and mother of two boys. I know what it’s like to rush through life on autopilot, losing touch with close friends and the truth about yourself in little pieces along the way. I can’t sit back & watch beautiful, smart, talented women, like you, isolate yourselves from very the relationships that have the power to give you the most strength.
That’s why this GNO was born!
I blog 5 days a week to encourage your heart. And I’m determined to create more fun, innovative ways for women to be all we’re meant to be and enjoy the journey together, despite our hectic lives. This HeartStories GNO is just one of those ways. I can’t wait to hug your neck!
If you want a fun break from the everyday hustle that is your life, with wine and your best girlfriends. . .
get your ticket to Girls Night Out now sister!
Come join us at GNO.
You’ll be glad you did.

Scripture Clings (Big Hearted)
After 8 months of blogging, Mimi was so inspired by the people that she met that she had a strong desire to give back. In March 2016, she launched Scripture Clings. Her passion for learning God’s word, mentoring young moms, and blogging all came together through Scripture Clings. Half the proceeds from every sale of Scripture Clings goes toward the purchase of 3-in-1 cribs & pack & plays, that will be donated to refugees, foster families and moms in need.
