Virtue speaks of having or exhibiting traits of moral excellence. We realize that for many of us, everyday presents matters that challenges our resolve. However, through Jesus Christ, we strive to be better women of God. To honor those Gems who set themselves as living examples and have displayed virtuous qualities and progressive changes within her personal life, we will highlight them here!
In the Summer of 2007, God gave our founder, Erika Wise, a vision to begin what she referred to as a "Vision Group." This vision came from own experience in a Christian sisterhood organization while she was a student at the University of Florida. She saw a need for positive Christian mentorship for young ladies in the Gainesville area.
After receiving confirmation from God, Wise got a few of her friends together to join in on the quest to enrich the lives of young girls. With 12 young women and a few supporters, the organization took off and begin its first 7-week process with about 10 to 12 teen girls in the Summer of 2009.
After a spirit-filled and life-changing experience with the first initiation, the group decided to continue on its journey to helping enrich the lives of young girls everywhere.
