I’ve been storing up lots of pictures of times with our Bright Lights “interns” to share with you all! We’ve really appreciated the extra help they have provided around our office, and we’ve enjoyed some fun times outside of “office hours” as well.

Each of the “interns” have been doing the “4:12 study” with one of the younger girls in our Bright Lights group. They met all together for the first time (above picture) and since that time they’ve been meeting once a week individually with their partner.

A couple times Kristin cooked a meal for all of us at the “guest house,” where they are staying. She is a very good cook / hostess. 🙂

Here Baylie and Kristin are packing boxes as we are gearing up for a conference trip. There is so much work that needs to be done before and after conferences — it’s been great to have the extra help. Last weekend we split up and Nickie, Rachel, Kristin, Emily, and Baylie went to the Nebraska Home School Conference while our family went to the Cincinnati Home School Conference. I’ll put up a few pictures of that soon.

Nickie taught the Desktop Publishing class this time instead of Stephen. She did a great job!

Tired and stressed from the class, but still similing! (because I told them to, haha 🙂 )

Cake and ice cream for Rachel’s birthday. Rachel (red) coordinates the BL Internships, and she is also in charge of purchasing. Both of those areas involve a lot, and I’m not sure how we would manage around here without Rachel! She and her sister Bekah (brown) have been working at the Bright Lights office 3 days a week for almost a year now.

We had a nice time with Kristin’s mom and sister who came to visit

  1. I love seeing pictures of the office, and especially hearing about the interns 🙂 It was nice seeing you at the convention last weekend, Grace!

  2. What a special experience! I would love to do this when I am older, Lord willing. =) That is neat that they did the 4:12 study as well. Right now I am doing a 4:12 study with two younger girls from church and so far it has been going wonderfully! We had our first one last week and it was a very sweet time of encouragement and spending time in God’s Word together!

    Blessings, Grace!

  3. How often do you plan the desktop publishing classes? Our family would be interested whenever the next one is planned.

  4. It’s so good to see the girls! Thank you Mally family for freely giving of yourselves and investing in the lives of these young women. Our daughter has been encouraged, challenged, stretched, exhorted and edified. This internship is such a blessing!
