True & Lovely Doll Club

Launching September 8th!

Or should I say re-launching?  You may remember the club from a few years ago!  Well… it’s back, and here’s what you can expect!!!

 

Mission Statement

“…Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8

 

Club Aim:

To Cultivate Playtime with a Purpose 

I want to give my girls true and lovely things to think about while they play with their favorite toys.  They love to imagine and pretend. They create worlds and stories.  I want the focus of their playtime to center on what is excellent and praiseworthy!  Based on Philippians 4:8, this is the purpose I want to give their playtime: to think about God and His Word and His creation.

 

How Does the Club Work?

You will receive a weekly email from Designs for Dolls every Tuesday (beginning Sept. 8th).

Each month the emails will follow this format:

  • Week 1 – Club Connections
  • Week 2 – Activity Adventures
  • Week 3 – Bible Buddies
  • Week 4 – Recap & Review

 

Club Connections will be a digital pdf download containing all the monthly content you will need for the club.  It is designed for girls to gather once a month with their local friends and their dolls to share a club meeting.  This option can be in-person or through an online format such as zoom.  While including friends can be fun, club meetings can also be held with parents, siblings, or just a girl and her dolls.  Instructions are in the Club Connections for holding this meeting along with suggested activities, service projects, printables, games, and encouragement from God’s Word. 

Activity Adventures will give additional ideas for at-home play centered around the monthly theme.

Bible Buddies will include encouragement from Scripture along with tips for digging into God’s Word… and a printable “Bible Buddy” for doll and me (I can’t wait for you to see these)!!!

Recap & Review will be a summary of the month plus an opportunity for you to share the blessings of playtime from your home.  You can send your pictures, comments, and encouragement to share with others and I’ll include it in the email!

A bonus for Classical Conversations families – you will notice connections to Foundations and Essentials at times!

The club is FREE!

My two oldest daughters and I are creating this club for my two youngest daughters, and we are offering the True & Lovely Doll Club content for free to any family.  We also design and create Christian and Homeschool doll accessories that can be purchased through our web store.  Club members will receive occasional shop updates and special offers only available to our Club email list.

Join now and look for your first True & Lovely Doll Club email on September 8th!
