UPDATE!

Drum Roll please!……….The winner of her choice of 2014 or 2015 Brave Girl Camps is……DIANA SKURKA!!!!!!!

Congratulations, Diana!! And thank you times a MILLION to every single one of you who entered! We included every entry from the blog, here on FaceBook, and those who entered by emailing us. There were over 1000 entries!!!  (Diana, please email amy@bravegirlsclub.com asap with your contact information.)

To every Brave Girl who entered this drawing . . . we are overwhelmed and touched and filled with gratitude for each of you and for your entries. We have been sitting here reading them since Friday as they have come in, and we have been at it all morning today. Our hearts are so full. We wish that we could have each of you come to camp . . . we really do! It was VERY hard to make ourselves choose the winner because we knew that so many would be disappointed. (The winner was chosen by a Random Number Generator.)

We just want you to know how important you are to us, and how much we love you and that we think of you every single day. 

We hope that you will consider registering for Brave Girl Camp. We have tried to make it as convenient as possible with a variety of dates and payment plans. Below are the dates for 2014 and 2015. All of the 2014 camps are filling up rapidly, so if next year is YOUR year, don’t wait!

Of all the things we do at Brave Girls Club, Camp is hands down our very favorite. There is just nothing like spending face-to-face time together and witnessing the life-changing results of the work we do there with our beloved campers. Check out the details for registration for camp HERE

If it’s just not possible for you to come right now, we hope hope hope you will consider taking Soul Restoration with us. We developed that online class specifically for those who couldn’t make it to actual Brave Girl Camp, and it is patterned closely after the curriculum that is taught at camp. RIGHT NOW the last scheduled session of Soul Restoration is in session, and you will have access to the online classroom through the end of the year. Our new private Face Book group for this class is growing into the most amazing support system and a place to support and encourage and love each other through the joyful but sometimes prickly process of learning, healing, and progressing. Registration is open for a few more weeks, and we are having such a great time doing this class right along side everyone in this session! Come join us!!

Thanks again to everyone who entered!! And congratulations to Diana!!
love,
kathy, melody, and the brave girl team

PS. We know that it was challenging at times to get on the site to enter. Our site was bogged down by all the traffic much of the time, but we were sure to include every single comment, every email entry we received, and every entry on our FaceBook page in the drawing so that everyone who wanted to be included was. We allowed 30 minutes of extra time so that we were sure each and every entry had been received, and then we used a Random Number Generator to choose the winning entry.

    Congratulations Diana! That is so awesome, I can’t imagine how excited you are. I hope you have the most amazing time. :)

  2. angie says

    What is the message on the rock at the very end of the video?
    “you will be okay”

    Complete this sentence: Our goal is to make sure you have the ______ of your _______!
    “The time of your life”.

    Why do you want to come to Camp?
    Unfortunately, I am so busy and overwhelmed and stressed and running mostly only on adrenaline, that I would not have the time to do something like this for myself unless it was made possible by the path of least resistance (haha). And the way I see it, the path of least resistance would be for it to just kind of ‘magically’ happen for me (not to diminish the extensive planning and preparation that y’all put into each and every Brave Girl Camp).

  3. says

    You will be OK… The ranch is near the Boise River… Because nothing would fill my soul more than to spend magical time with my creative sistas! I’m preparing to open up my very first brick and mortar shop, and although I am finding the strength within, I don’t always get the support and encouragement I would love to have from some others in my life. Thanks so much for this opportunity! You really give me inspiration every day on your beautiful site. XO

    1. You will be okay.
    2. Luke’s Smoked BBQ Tri Tip Steak seems to have seriously caught my eye. yum.
    3. Oh this would just be a dream come true. I have a one and two year old and feel like I’m just surfacing again as a young mom. I am currently in Soul Restoration unearthing the me inside the mama. And it feels so good.
    Thanks for the chance to win!
    Joyfully,
    Becca

  6. Kristen says

    1. You will be ok
    2. An item from the Sample Menu {that sounds amazing!} is Grilled Flat-Iron Steak Caprise Salad
    3. Dreaming of coming to camp for some soul-strength. They say if you’re not growing, you’re dying and I need some GROWTH.

    Thanks for the chance! Never been very lucky, but hoping for a change of luck!

  7. says

    1. You will be ok
    2. The ranch is called Brave River Ranch, at Star ID.
    3.I would love to win a trip to see you guys at Brave Girls Camp because it would help nurture my soul. I first discovered Brave Girls Club about a year ago, and if I knew how much it would challenge me, push me beyond my comfort zone, and impact my families life, I would have been afraid to try it out. I think fear is the one thing all of us can identify with. Fear of not being loved, not being good enough, not living life to our potential. You have given me the courage to really change my life. Not just to say it, but to actually do it. I feel like you guys are my friends, and family, and I would love to continue my education in person with you all. I wish I had more time to let you all know how much you’ve changed me. I can’t thank you enough.

  8. Shannon Tompkins says

    1. You will be ok.
    2. Next to the Boise River
    3. To heal and the negative images that I protrayed on myself!

    1. you will be ok
    2. Star, ID
    3. My soul needs this so badly you just can’t imagine – this would be just what the doctor ordered.

    Bless Brave Girls Club & all the Brave Girls that follow along. :)

  10. says

    “You will be ok” I so need that today!
    Your camp is next to the Boise River. It looks beautiful there!
    I would live to be creative with other artists and enjoy a vacation of rejuvenating my creativity, getting a confidence boost and enjoying the art barn with beautiful people :)

  11. merle kaner stengel says

    You will be okay. The TIME of my LIFE could be had at Brave Girl Ranch. I am learning to reconcile with the surprises my body has given me. I am recognizing thatwhat I first thought was a detour is actually my way. My pain makes me focus differently. I want to learn how to be me. Brave Girl Camp could help.

  12. Linzie Hogan says

    Thanks for the chance to win, as it would take me a good couple of years to finish saving enoung money to go to camp :)

  14. says

    1. You will be okay
    2. Brave River Ranch in Star, Idaho
    3. I run my own speaking and retreat business called “God’s Struggler.” I would like to learn how to take it further and be more creative with it. I also have struggled with Fibromyalgia for over 25 years and would like to meet other Brave Girls who cope well with struggle.

  15. says

    You Will Be Ok!!! :-)
    Our goal is for you to have the time of your life
    I dream of a chance to get away and find myself. I just recently became brave enough to say “I am an artist” and actually quit my job to do what I love full time. I need to be in a place where there are similar souls as me to connect and become inspired. This camp would be my dream come true.

  16. Cyndy Smith says

    You will be OK :)
    Camp is held at Brave River Ranch in Star Idaho
    I would love to participate in the camp for so many reasons! I love being artsy, crafty and creative because it brings me happiness, balance and grace. I am trying to find more ways to fit art into my life and your camp sounds so perfect (I loved taking Soul Restoration 1 & 2 online, too!) The past 5 years have been challenging for me and so I would love an opportunity to hit the reset button! Thank you and blessings to you! xo

  17. says

    Yikes! It wouldn’t take my comment!!! Trying again!

    1. You will be okay.

    2 The ranch is by the Boise River.

    3. I want to come to Brave Girl Camp – have ever since I heard about it – because I’ve decided that I want to thrive instead of just survive, and I know I will at Camp!!

  18. Leslie McMurray says

    1.You Will Be OK
    2. One of Kallie’s promises was to open her heart to bring in new friendships
    3. Because I cried when I saw this e-mail. My soul is wounded and a camp like this is what I need more than I can express. If I don’t win – I will find a way. My life has changed in the last 12 months like I never imagined. A story for another day!

  19. Kimberly Racer says

    You will be ok.
    Brave Girl camp is held in Star, Idaho.
    Words can not explain what your website means to my life. I have searched for years for empowerment and positive reinforcement that comes from reading your words of wisdom and encouragement. I have dreamed of going to your camp and hope to make it soon. Many changes and challenges have occurred in my life over the past few years and you have helped me continue in a positive and embraced way. Thank you.

  20. kara f. says

    3. I want to learn everything (or as much as I an) that everyone else has been able to learn at BGC. I think it would be a life changing event for me, and right about now I could use “some” life changing”.

  23. Debra Schumscher says

    Hello lovelies! So blessed with soul restoration.

    The message on the rock is “you will be ok” I cry when I see that it so touches my soul.

    You do not have to be an artist to go to camp!

    I want to go to camp because

    “Today I’m ready for a change- yes today is the day”.

    And because what I learn from Brave Girls online, I pass along to people/women I come into contact with.
    It would be incredible in person- all that love.

  24. Holly S. says

    You will be ok!
    Star, ID
    I’m taking Soul Restoration right now. I would love to continue the journey and get more in depth by attending Brave Girls Camp.

  25. tami logan says

    You will be ok. Star, Idaho. I am doing soul restoration and I have never had something so beautiful come into my life and take me to the depths of my heart. I can only imagine how camp would change my life, who’d would of thought at 50 my life is totally becming beautiful. I hope I win

  26. Holly says

    1. You will be ok.

    2. Do you have to be an artist to attend Brave Girl Camp? NO! 😀

    2. star, idaho

  28. Anna says

    1.You will be ok (heart)
    2. Brave River Ranch in Star, ID
    3. I want to come to camp because I want time for myself to create art and connect with my spirit and let myself unfold. The video made my heart feel tender and my eyes well because brave girls has started me on such a journey and camp would be an incredible place to continue my journey.

  29. says

    1. You will be OK
    2. Brave River Ranch, Star Idaho
    3. I always forget how brave I am. I convince myself that I am a fearful and timid person when really, inside I know I’m not. I want to live that inside person on the outside.

  30. Tisha says

    1. you will be ok
    2. you do NOT need to be an artist (thank goodness!)
    3. i’d love to go to camp to regain a sense of my true self as it seems to have gone missing as i’ve become lost in motherhood and i can’t seem to find it. :( i long to reconnect with my deeper self and be confident to live into the woman God has created me to be and inspire my daughter to be all God created her to be as well!

  31. Blue Harmony says

    1. You will be ok.

    2. The ranch is called the Brave River Ranch

    3. And I would love to attend camp for the reasons that I know my goodness, know whats in my heart and I know my potential and for life reasons I havent lived to my potential..I see the Brave girl posts and feel so happy and know thats how I should be living eveyday. It has been beautiful inspiration for me. It would be amazing to go to camp but I still am fortunate for this site and thank you for all this group does and for the smiles :)

  32. says

    1) You will be okay
    2) The Brave Bus
    3) My world was seriously changed when I took Soul Restoration 1 back in 2009. I was in such a sad place. My life is brighter and lighter and I have so much more hope since then (and SR2, Body Restoration too!). I would love to come to Brave Girl Camp and experience the lift in person to hopefully give me the courage to do more than I have been brave enough to do on my own. There is still much soul work to do. Thank you for your awesomeness!!!

  33. Sue Griggs says

    1. You will be OK
    2. You do not have to be an established artist to come to Brave Girl Camp, as we are each the artist of our own soul. What speaks to one person may or may not speak to another; if it does, then it’s a fabulous gift that we can share. If it doesn’t however, it’s of no matter, as long as we listen to our own heart’s song.
    3. I want to find the part of my soul that it feels like I lost along the way, and to get to know the ‘me’ I have become on my journey.

  34. Alissa Williams says

    You will be ok
    Star, Idaho
    I would like to join you ladies because I already feel the love. I took a Soul Restoration course in Louisiana (lived there a short stint) and then moved to Boise a year later. I was able to MEET Melody and KATHY at the Open House last winter. It was SO awesome to see the workspace and products in PERSON! Now I want to continue my journey and reinvent myself. I sure miss “girl” time 😉

  35. Amanda in GA says

    1. You will be ok
    2 Brave River Ranch , Star Idaho
    3 I would like to come to camp because everything I read about camp and all things to do with Brave Girl’s Club always fills me with peace.

  36. says

    1. You will be OK
    2. No you do not have to be an artist.
    3. I’m working through restarting my life at 50 – in all life dimensions, Brave Girls has become an integral part of that.

  38. Sue Kennedy says

    1. You will be OK!
    2. The Brave Bus transports campers! (I love the name)
    3.I want to come to camp because I want to take advantage of every opportunity to become even braver! This would be amazing!

    Thank you for encouraging women everywhere to be brave and trust love!

  39. Leanne says

    1. You will be ok.
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. Because I am not very brave and need support in finding my voice and purpose. I am scared to death of being vulnerable but hear my heart’s longing to get there.

  40. Diane Baker-Williams says

    1. rock says “you will be ok (heart)
    2. camp is held at Brave river Ranch in Star, ID
    3. I want to learn to silence that voice (or quiet it )that tells me my art isn’t good enough. I am new in discovering art and I want to build my confidence. i believe Brave Girls Camp will help me do that.

  41. Jenn says

    “you will be OK”
    Brave River Ranch in Star, ID
    I’m ready for a change…..I really need to retreat, even if for a short time, to get myself back. You ladies are soooo generous, thank you for offering this spot to someone. There are so many women who need it….the right one will be chosen. God bless all the brave girls!

  42. Julia Sands says

    1. You will be ok.
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. Why? As simply as the song in the video… “I’m ready for a change!”

  43. Jessie Brown says

    “You will be ok” :) You arrive at Camp on the Brave Bus and there is a monthly payment plan available. I want to come to camp to continue the discovery of my self. To build a beautiful relationship with my beaten up adult self and that beautiful 4 year old girl I used to be. I would love to be surrounded by beautiful sisters in a supportive, creative environment. I also am embarking on a lifestyle change involving surgery (bariatric), and would love to encourage myself to know that I am more than food and labeled the “fat girl.” AND to have a great time!!! :)

  44. Nancy says

    The Rock says “You Will Be Okay”
    One of the sample menu items in cheesy pull apart bread
    I want to come to Brave Girls Camp because I have spent many years trying to be happy and figure out what my purpose in life is. Taking the Soul Restoration course was more benficial to me than any other tactic that I have tried, including life coaching and therapy. That course could be the tip of the iceburg and I know that the Brave Girl Camp could help me further explore what Soul Restoration has already helped me with.

  45. Lisa Vance says

    1. You will be OK

    2. We get around on the Brave Girls bus, of course!

    3. So I’m having to type and think fast since I just saw this contest! At the first the thing I wanted to do is not believe I deserve this because someone else has a pain greater than mine or need greater than mine. But Melody and Kathy you have taught me not to devalue my story or feelings.
    I am just coming out of a bad 20+ your marriage. To a man who put me in a box and tried to bring me down to his level. I started to put myself in that box as well and it has been just the past 2 or 3 years that I have finally found my voice again.
    Brave Girls Club was one of the main sources of help and inspiration for me. I started with body restoration. And then I moved on to soul restoration…still working on that!

    I cannot think of the greater gift to give myself then a place at Brave Girls Camp. My soul feels at home there and I can see myself being there and meeting the amazing women that I know will be there with me.

    I want to practice all that I have learned and build upon it. Doing it with two women I greatly admire would be an amazing thing.

    I will get there on my own one day but this gift would be amazing because financially, coming out of the divorce, it will be very difficult to do it anytime soon. So, oh my goodness, I really hope you pick me! xoxo

    3. As a mom to 2 chronically ill special needs kids I often do not put myself on the list . But I know self care is so important for both myself & my kids. Taking that time at Brave Girl Camp would restore & recharge my soul to continue onthis journey. Thanks for the opportunity!

    3. Wow, I have followed you since your Chatterbox days and always loved your work, your spirit, your love of family. When your difficulties began my suffering began as the first female minority general counsel of the second largest city in Georgia. The things that were done to me personally and professionally and said publicly about me for a time destroyed me and my world and made me question all I knew about life and my faith in God. It’s been almost 4 years and I am still unemployed and have been broken for TOO LONG. On the days that I could not get out of bed, talk to anyone or leave the house after being forced off my job my scrapbook studio was my sanctuary and the only place I found peace and hope. And your products Artsy Urban, Homespun Chic, and especially Soul Food said she is still HERE! Here is someone who has really gone through something and still loves, still tries, still believes and is coming out. I felt that I knew you by the spirit! And it was destiny to be introduced to your products again. Then to see your journey evolve into the Brave Girl’s Club…really began my process of healing and truly believing that something GOOD will come out of all that I have been through too!! I have always wanted to attend camp but have not been able to afford it, this would be a supreme blessing and further me on my journey to wholeness!! Chosen or not thanks for the blessing you are to me and the world!

    3. I’m writing for my sister who is a bravegirl and doesn’t know it. I don’t have the means to send her to camp myself and she would never dare invest in herself – and oh, I so much want her to live and see how many kind and sharing hearts thee are in this world! It would be the greatest gift.

  52. says

    1. You will be ok.
    2. The Brave Bus – so neat!
    3. Have been working on loving myself for ME…. from all I read and see, this would give me the ultimate boost/help on my journey.

  53. Amy Hoffman says

    “you will be ok” Yes, we will!
    I do not have to be an artist to visit Brave River Ranch to let my creative self soar.

    1. you will be okay (with a heart icon)
    2. Star, Idaho (what a beautiful place)
    3. After a 20 year marriage ended in divorce… first, I found solace in the Daily Truths and then strength. Everyday I can’t wait to read your email right after my morning devotional. Between the two they give me encouragement, hope, and make me believe (faith) there is a purpose for my life.
    I have been in a few relationships over the past 7 years but each time one ended then I lost another piece of the whole me. So I don’t know who I am anymore and I want to find ME again. I am still single and struggle with that issue daily. I believe some of the reason I can’t succeed in a new relationship is because I am not whole.
    I used to live in Mtn Home, Idaho and that was the only place I will call HOME . I moved back east to NC to take care of my mother who had to undergo some extensive surgeries (she has recovered -Thank God). I am a single mom and now working as a hospice nurse and I love taking care of people but honestly I need some one to take care of me for a little while and help me heal.
    I want to move back to Idaho but the right job opportunity has not presented itself but I know it will when the time is right. I need to be back to the only place I feel like I belong – IDAHO.
    I am grateful for the Daily Truths because I feel loved, respected, and most of all not alone. I am grateful for people like you that empower women and would like to thank you for the opportunity to enter this drawing. It is truly a gift! :) So I hope this entry takes this time–I tired one earlier and it stated there was a delivery failure…so if it shows up twice that is why!

    WOW! Thank you for offering this giveaway – a wonderful blessing!
    1) You will be ok.
    2) Brave Girl Campers ride the “Brave bus” to camp.
    3) I never had the opportunity to go away to camp as a young girl. Oh how fun this camp would be! Idaho is beautiful! I’m a “caretaker” at heart…coming to camp would be an opportunity for me to let all my creative juices be expressed, rejuvinate and “caretake” myself, in a awe-inspiring setting.

  58. says

    You will be ok.
    No you do not need to be an artist!
    I had a mental breakdown a few years ago and have been recovering from that. Two years ago I went through breast cancer. Still doing some inner and physical healing! Really need a break and do something amazing and inspiring! I took the Soul Restoration class this year and LOVED it~ hope to win! thanks for the giveaway!

    3. I am ready to heal, grow, change, become, love, feel, develop… and the list goes on. I am READY… is the main reason. That, and a trip back to Idaho would be great… I lived in Pocatello years ago :)

  60. Elaine K says

    1. You will be OK

    2. How do campers get from the hotel to the Ranch each day?
    Brave Girls Bus
    What kind of vehicle?
    old school bus turned “Brave Girl Bus
    The best ride EVER!!

    3. I want to send my daughter after she finishes bursing school next year. or for me to go again ….i seem to have fallen off the bus a bit, and need to BE BRAVE in all of life & find myself again and love her like she deserves to be loved –

    YOU ARE ALL THE BEST !

  61. Julie Spradlin says

    1. you will be ok <3

    2. Kallie's testimonial promise to herself: I promise to start breaking down the walls around my heart that prevent me from making deep and lasting friendships.

    3. Why do I want this? It's simple and pretty straight forward. I want this chance to reward myself and my soul-house. Since becoming sober 10 months ago, I have had to feel all the hurts and pains I've pushed deep down for 30 years. I've faced more pain in 10 years than I would have ever imagined. I want to show myself if I continue on this brave journey, that I've faced alone, I truly am stronger than I appear. I want my soul to be completely free. And BGC is the chance to finally fly free. Thank you BGC.

  62. Carrie Bishop says

    The sweet rock says, “you will be ok <3". Brave Girls Camp is at the Brave River Ranch, nestled right along the Boise River. And I'm ready for a change! I want to go to camp to practice being vulnerable and connected to my Brave Sisters, because we are all worth it. I'm so grateful for all that you do; thank you.

  63. Lori Ann Weber says

    1. You will be ok
    2. Star, ID
    3. I would like to attend camp again because it is one of the safest places I have ever been. The brave girls that I met were some of the most amazing women that I am sharing my life with now. Melody and Kathy are amazing along with all the staff at camp. I want to relive it all over again.

  64. Linda says

    1. You will be okay!

    2. Lemon Mousse with Lemon Blossom Cookies (yum – I craved lemon when I was pregnant with my daughter!!

    3. I am crying just reading about the camp! I have been telling myself – up until this morning – that I would never be able to afford to go. No more. Even if I don’t win, I will be there sometime!

    Thank you for all you do – your work is literally a lifesaver for me!!!!!!!!!!

  65. says

    1. Yu will be OK
    2. Star ID next to the Boise River
    3. Because as a 64 yerl old double mastectomy breast cancer survivor, I know each and every day is a gift..and we need to accept the gift with grace & courage. To be able to share that thought through my art would be yet another gift this wonderful life has to offer :-)

  66. Barbara says

    3. I want to attend brave girls camp one of these days…but I really want to wind this for a good friend of mine who needs this camp so much! She is so incredibly creative and through life circumstances has lost her “touch” I know this would rekindle it ….so if I win I would want to gift it to her….and one day I will attend myself!!

    Brave River Ranch
    I pray one day I will have the opportunity to meet you all in person at Bravegirl Camp so that I can give you all a huge hug and thank you in person for saving my life. xox

  71. says

    (1) You will be ok. <3

    (2) Answer ONE of these Camp Trivia questions:
    Brave Girl Camp is held in what town? Star

    (3) Answer this question: Why do you want to come to Camp!
    I have been working through some past trama in my life, from my youth and as a young adult. I used to own a paper arts store where I put on a shell everyday. My career suffered, I want to take the shell off, do art and be…just be. I am closer to forgiveness than I ever have been, I need it for myself and my family.

  72. says

    1-You will be ok

    2-Are there payment plans available

    yes!

    3-I want to attend because ever since I watched the videos and read about it and Melody I know it’s something I really want.

    I intended to go to art college out of high school and never did it. Life had other plans.

    I am now a 46 year old single mom of a 7 year old named Jack and although I have taken up art again, I was never really inspired as I am now through Brave Girls. I lost my direction.

    I recently broke off a 3 year relationship. It has been one of the hardest things to do in my life. It’s been 3 months and I still cry. But! I found Brave Girls and it has empowered me when I felt weak and it has brought me back to my first love-art in a way I can’t explain.

    Sorry this is so long. Thank you.

  73. Jill Graham says

    Hello!
    The message on the rock is You Will Be Ok.
    Camp is held on the Brave River.
    I would love to come to your camp because it is so loving, nurturing, and encouraging. I am 2/3 of the way thru breast cancer treatment and am learning to love myself and life in a new beautiful way. I would love to bring my sister to camp with me so we share the impact of such a powerful experience! Thanks for putting together such amazing programs for women. Brave Girls Club is like a U Turn off of the bumpy road of life!

  74. says

    1. Boise River
    2. You will be okay.
    3. I have been in a very bad place for a long time and I don’t know how to make a change for the first time in my life. I’ve always been brave but I lost it. I need it back, badly.

  75. says

    1. You will be ok
    2. Boise River in Star Idahooo at the Brave River ranch!
    3. I met Melody at WWC Conf and was hooked! I have an art biz that is to help foster my step daughter’s art as she has Williams Syndrome and have put so much into her voice that I have neglected mine! Buttttt I am going to step aside on this one and I am putting my sister Kari’s name in place if mine as she is presently in stage 3 colon cancer remission but in the middle of her battle lost her job and is trying to get back on her feet – she is crazy creative and so needs a boost like this! I am sending her your emails!!! Thanks for offering this chance and may God bless you richly!!!!

  76. Michiko says

    1) “You will be ok”
    2) Camp is at Brave River Ranch nestled up to the Boise River.
    3) I have a soul sister who has inspired me to become a “brave girl” after she attended camp last March. She and I have much in common – divorce, feeling our way through this new life of singleness with children, wanting to be the best people we can be – especially for the little people in our lives. I am looking for a way to heal, move forward, love myself, and be authentic. I hear Brave Girls camp can help me with those very things. I’m coming to camp…

  77. Lisa Stevens says

    Hi there!
    1. Brave River Ranch
    2. You will be ok. ♥
    3. Why OH why? Because life has kicked my trash for the past few years. And I wanna be BRAVE! Go girls! xo♥ (I took the first Soul Restoration class…and adore your spirit and mission. If I don’t win this…someday I’ll be front and center in Brave Girls Camp. I promise!) Lotsa LOVE!!!

  78. Donna Reaves says

    1. You will be ok. 2. Brave River ranch. In the last few years I have hidden myself from others, keeping them at arms length. I don’t trust anyone, anymore. It has been a horrible year, I have RA, that gives me not much relief, our home burned in November. We moved back in April, my grandmother died that day, of the way from the funeral my stepdad had a massive stroke. I live with my mom, with dementia, and uncle, Vietnam vet. with no legs, and needs heart surgery and refuses it. Putting my son into rehab tomorrow, and I have lost alot of contact with myself during this year. I am praying I am picked. I need a hideaway that is positive.

  79. ueb716@aol.com says

    1. You will be okay…
    2. The bus,
    3. I need brave girl camp to connect with my soul…..and I already love the soul restoration class. When I saw the info on the class I was like yea, that is what I want to do with my life. Help connect women to their soul and eachother. No more surface friendships…

  80. Chris Palmieri says

    1. “You will be OK”
    2. Star, Idaho (I can’t wait to visit)
    3. I heard “Cool Change” by the Little River Band this morning which sums up my state of mind!

  81. Phyllis says

    1. You will be ok
    2. Camp is held at Brave River Ranch
    3. I feel so weighed down by things that have happened that I haven’t dealt with completely. A chance to get away, face the truth of what my life is now and find a way to see what I want it to be would be a gift.

  82. Jo Seymour says

    You will be OK. Boise River. I recently lost my husband of almost 50 years. It was sudden and so unexpected. Now I find myself reeling just trying to find my Joy again. I know I serve a faithful God and I am waiting, longing to feel whole again. I find myself saying, “I will be ok” so seeing the message on the rock at the end was surreal. I would love to be a part of this awesome experience you have put together, but for all those who do attend I wish for them a time of healing, encouragement, and one-ness I know awaits them. Be blessed, my beautiful art friends.

  83. Tanya says

    1. You will be ok
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I would love to come to camp to over come the things that are holding me back from living the life I truly desire.

  84. says

    1. you will be ok. (yes I tell myself that everyday!!)
    2. Star, Idaho (practically in my backyard! yes Idaho Is my home!)
    3. I signed up for Soul Restoration and was able to complete most of the courses, life just got crazy busy & I would love to have a little “me getaway” & attend Brave Girls Camp. I love everything that Brave Girls represents and it would be an amazing opportunity to get the chance to experience. Melody is one incredible woman and getting the chance to meet her & following her example to better not only my own life but the lives of my family & friends around me. <3

  85. says

    1–“you will be ok”. 2–at Brve River Ranch; 3–I would like to attend brave girl camp because its been a rough year, and this would give me a safe place to regroup.

  86. Jessica C. Wilson-Hess says

    What’s on the Rock?? You wil be ok
    Name of the Ranch?? Brave River Ranch
    Why do I want to come to camp?? I sometimes feel as if my soul just needs time away from everything- away from being a wife, a mother, a friend, and all the other things I have to be. Camp looks like an amazing peacful wonderful experience and my whole heart and soul just wants to be there.

  87. says

    1. You will be ok
    2. One of Kallie’s promises: I promise to be more forward, open and honest with myself and others about what I really want.
    3. Why do I NEED to go to Brave Girls Camp? My soul calls out for it. For the love, community, support and enrichment I will experience there. For the time away from my beautiful family to remember who I am, what I want to become, and that I am strong enough to make my dreams happen. To show my four young daughters that it is WORTH IT to do the work to be happy. To share yourself with others and be surprised by the blessings of service. Thanks so much BGC!

  88. says

    *You will be ok. ( I need to tell myself everyday (“I will be okay”)
    *to have the time of my life.
    *I have had this aching desire to find my authentic self. I feel like I have conformed to what others expect me to be expected to do. I have lost the confidence to be who I want to be and am. I have loved the daily BG emails and they have inspired me greatly.

  89. Kathy says

    1. you will be ok
    2. Campers get to and from the Ranch on the “Brave Bus”.
    3. I’ve taken several of your online classes and found them to be of both interesting and healing. I can only imagine the Ranch experience to be of even greater benefit.

  90. Shannon K. Brown says

    1. The message on the rock is “You will be OK”
    2. The location of the camp is Star, ID
    3. My meditation teacher told be about Brave Girls and I joined the mailing list. While I love the daily messages, what my heart guides me to do sometimes clashes with what my brain tells me. Being more logical, the “brain” usually wins. It’s time for me to learn to bring those two together, to be able to follow my heart even when, sometimes, it doesn’t make logical sense. I’d like to learn that it’s OK to be who I REALLY AM, not what others expect of me, or more importantly, what I think they expect of me (whether this is the case or not). I wish to live an authentic life, true to myself, not in the selfish way, but in the healthy, good self-care way. And I think this Camp would help me along this journey I’ve chosen. Scary, exciting, difficult, joyful and all else that it will be…

  91. says

    1. You will be ok
    2. You do NOT have to be an artist to attend camp!
    3. I would like to attend the camp so that I can take some time to care for myself and slow down for a few days in a beautiful place! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!

  92. says

    1. The rock reads, “you will be ok.”
    2. Campers get from the hotel to the Ranch each day by riding the Brave Bus :)
    3. I would love to attend Camp for far too many reasons to list here. One teeny tiny (but tasty) one would be to sample the lemon mousse with lemon blossom cookies! Seriously though, thank you for providing us with such a wonderful opportunity and congratulations to whomever does win such an amazing prize.

  93. Suzy says

    So excited!
    1. Bottom of rock says “you will be ok”
    2. Camp is held at Brave River Ranch
    3. I’d love to go to camp because I have done virtually nothing creative or just for me since having my son almost 14 months ago. Creative expression used to be a huge part of my everyday life and now it isn’t. I miss it.

  94. Michele says

    You will be OK.
    Star Idaho.
    For me the reminder to take time for myself is very important. The tools that I get from camp help me to remember this and all the important things in my life that really need attention. The people all care about you so much and just truly want to help you find your truth. It is the most positive place that I have ever been.

  95. Susan Winter says

    The message on the rock says, “you will be okay”. The bus to transport campers is the Brave Bus. I want to come to camp because I’ve loved every Brave Girl class and I want to experience it all in person!

  96. Jill says

    1) The rock says “you will be okay”
    2) Camp is in Star, ID
    3) I want to go to camp because I never actually DO the stuff that I say I want to do, such as all the art and journaling suggestions you provide and offer. Once I have immersed myself in it at camp, it will be the only natural expression of me. What that means is that I would just connect with and act upon my heart’s true desires.

  97. says

    1. You will be ok
    2. Located in Star Idaho
    3. I don’t have room to list the reasons!! I have taken all of your online classes (some of them twice) and I can’t believe how they have changed me. I know the camp would be incredible. I love you all so much!!

  98. Cindy Berry says

    1. You will be ok (boy do I need to hear that message a hundred times a day!)
    2. Our goal is to make sure you have the time of your life. (I’m ready!)
    3. Why? It’s been a tough year (thanks to a disappointing husband of 32 years). It’s time for me to move on to new adventures, new possibilities, new creativeness, and a host of new friends.

  99. theresa says

    1. You will be ok (I am ok!!)
    2.You do not have to be an artist to attend camp (but I believe we all are artist, we just forgot)
    3. I love camp too! I love learning, I love art, I love all of you and what you are doing!!

  100. Brigitte Morris says

    P.S. In my previous post I said “…such a blessing that I couldn’t begin to survive.” I meant describe (all that survive in my thoughts put it there). Of course, I would survive camp and gain more tools to survive and THRIVE!

  101. Lora says

    1) You will be ok
    2) Brave River Ranch
    3)My two besties and I have gotten together to do a girls weekend every year for 17 years. We always talked about doing a Brave Girls Camp because one of us lived in Boise. We lost that sweet friend a year and a half ago. If I won I could help cover the costs for my other friend to attend with me…we could use some loving, healing, artistic time together and being in the Boise area would mean our sweet friend would feel close to us.

  102. Kimberly Baham says

    1. You will be ok! 2. Camp is in the town of Star, Idaho 3. I am ready for a change…I’m tired of feeling stuck and would love to be surrounded by such beauty and others who too are looking to make a change!

  103. Adrienne says

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway.

    1. You will be ok
    2. You do not need to be an artist
    3. I have always dreamed of going to Brave Girls Camp. I was blessed to have taken the Soul Restoration online class. I have more healing to do. I want to show my niece that there is hope and changes can be made. I want to be a better me. I believe the camp could help me achieve this.

  104. shannon johnson says

    1. You will be ok.
    2. You do not have to be an artist to attend camp!
    3. I would like to attend camp to take a break from caring for others in my job and to take some time to care for myself at such a beautiful place!

  105. Jeanne says

    You will be okay.
    The camp is held on Brave River Ranch.
    I’m an artist, but I feel guilty doing things I enjoy, like paint or sew. That makes it hard to do the things I was made to do. I need to change the things I tell myself, and learn to be kinder to myself.

  106. says

    1. You will be ok
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I’d love to have another way to learn and grow as a human being, as a woman, and as an artist. I think your camp would be a positive, encouraging experience.

  107. Karo Hamilton says

    1. “you will be OK”
    2. Star, Idaho
    3. I love Brave Girls and everything that you have done. I have done Soul Restoration and it was amazing!! I was Diagnosed with MS in 2009 and have been struggling with dealing with stress I want to learn how to use art and journaling more to cope with life so I can keep myself healthy longer. I want to come to Brave Girls Camp very much but cannot afford to. Pick Me, Pick Me!!!

  108. Keyana Osthed says

    1. You Will be OK
    2. Camp is held at the Brave River Ranch
    3. I would love to go to camp because I am really working on moving forward on my journey after my husband of 23 years left our family but as a single mother of 4 camp is not financially feasible for me at this time. I have been incredibly uplifted by the brave girls club emails and website…. I would imagine that camp would be an incredible experience!

  109. Danielle Klavins says

    1. You will be ok
    2. One of Kallie’s promises is to start breaking down the walls around her heart.
    3. To take care of and replenish “me”. So that I can breath in peace and exhale love!

  110. Brigitte Morris says

    1) You will be okay.
    2) Kallie’s promise – “I promise to start breaking down the walls around my heart that prevent me from making deep and lasting friendships.”
    3) This as been a hard year, a long, discouraging search for a full-time, permanent job that has still not ended. I have survived many things in my life such as a turbulent childhood, a brother who struggled unsuccessfully with bipolar disorder and died at 42, my husband’s mental breakdown and my own mental breakdown – to name just a few. I reclaimed doing art for just my own pleasure when I was 40. Expressing myself thru art is one of the things that helps me during the dark times. To be able to be renewed, inspired, create art in the company of brave women would be such a blessing that I couldn’t begin to survive. That you for the light you project into the world!

  111. Pamela Hanamoto says

    I love that the rock said, “You WILL be OK”. Brave River Ranch sits next to the beautiful Boise River. I want to come to camp to find confidence in myself again. I lost myself along the way – taking care of others and staying in a marriage where I was unloved…mostly because my children were loved by my ex-husband. Kids grew up and I finally found the courage to leave the marriage. I know I will be OK, but I wish my life made better sense like the theme song said. I need to revive!

  112. Elizabeth Steele says

    uno) You will be OK
    dos) Boise River
    tres) More of a need than want, but want so very bad to meet other Brave Girls that I cannot find where I live.

  113. Eileen Bochsler says

    I don’t see my comment posted, so I will try again…
    1) You will be okay.
    2) Star, ID
    3) I’m ready to begin healing and moving forward from a VERY difficult year… my adopted daughter took us to court and we were forced to relinquish our parental rights. She is no longer our daughter. I just took my oldest and only daughter to college (the first to leave). This has been very difficult not only on me, but just trying to hold the family together through all this. I found the Brave GIrls Club when I was in the middle of all this mess… it was the quotes or the blog posting that kept me together some days.

  114. Mellany Carver says

    You will be OK.
    School bus . . . I think . . . that is why I need to go so I can find out.
    Have you ever wanted something so bad but just knew that it was a hope and a wish and a dream out of your reach? That is Brave Girls Camp to me . . . I have followed Melody and the Brave Girls Camp posts for a few years now and I just wish I could find a way to go. I have a friend that went to jail for a white collar crime. But she was put ‘in’ with many other harder criminals. Her life was threatened, her heart was broken, her faith was thin and everything she knew was gone . . . I sent her the Brave Girl encouragement letters as much as I could. She would read them over and over again to give her the strength to face the day. And when one of her ‘bunkees’ needed some encouragement . . . she would share it with them. Their lives were forever changed by those messages. I would love more than anything to go to Brave Girls Camp . . . I would love to learn how to forgive myself . . . I would love to win this so I could share more truth with my ‘friend’ that was incarcerated. She is out now and stronger (a little) but everyday is a challenge. I made her a Brave Girls book with many of my favorite letters included. It was her favorite gift. Thank you so much to all of you at BGC and especially to Melody and her sister for having hearts big enough to share this gift with all of us. God Bless you ladies . . . you are doing amazing work!

  115. KAthleen Sheffield says

    You will be ok!
    Yes there are payment plans!
    I want to go because I am turning 50…that doesn’t scare me but I have realized I have lived everyone else’s live but mine….I want to live mine now. I think I am creative but only because I can copy others….I want to start finding my identity….my creative outlet…and yes I want to start doing for me! I want to start the healing process of me! Here is to the next 50 xxoo

  116. Elizabeth Steele says

    Uno) “You will be OK”
    Dos) Boise River
    Tres) Thinking it is more of a need…..but oh yes want very much. I want to meet other Brave Girls that I can’t seem to find where I live.

  117. Carmen Worley says

    1. “You will be OK.”
    2. Brave River Ranch in Star, Idaho on the Boise River
    3. I am “ready for a change,,,” and need to nurture the musician & artist and true self inside me. :-)

  118. Jean_H says

    You will be ok ♥
    Our goal is to make sure you have the time of your life!
    I am in a rut. I need a way out. I feel Brave Girl Camp could be the direction I seek. I can’t afford to go on my own, much as I would love to, so really appreciate the opportunity to win a spot. Thank you so very much!
    Have a wonderful day :)

  119. says

    – “You will be okay” says, the rock.
    – Transportation from the hotel to the ranch via a shabby chic beige bus with other like minded soul searching sisters.
    – There are so many reasons why I would love to attend the camp: to be surrounded by the creative and positive uplifting messages that have come from Melody and her team, while I seek peace and understanding and direction for my own path, while I create and play and paint and glue like a little girl (very hard for me), and then be filled to overflowing with blessings that I can share with other sisters.

  120. says

    1. What is the message on the rock at the very end of the video? You will be ok <3
    2. Answer ONE of these Camp Trivia questions: Are there payment plans available? Monthly Payment Plans are available
    3. Answer this question: Why do you want to come to Camp? Truthfully after reading the comments I feel like I don't want to take chances away from these ladies (especially seeing the health issue posts!) With that being said, I DO know that I would be so very grateful to finally have the chance to meet Melody and Kathy in person (I have been a scrapbooker since the Chatterbox days and I bet I was one of the first people to spread the word about Brave Girls back in the day!) I absolutely feel BETTER after I read your inspiring messages through email/facebook, etc. Most of the days it brings me to tears knowing I AM NOT ALONE, and that we are all being brave in this life and need to share that. Like many, financially I am not able to attend, and feel guilty for taking time out for myself… but it would be incredible to get recharged and find some peace again. I am up to my ears in raising a wonderful teenager, keeping a household functioning, stress of owning my own business for 12 years and working and worrying… my own health is suffering, and I've lost myself somewhere in between. I've gotta believe I am worth more than this daily struggle and deserve it (as do we all!) Love you guys and your mission. Thank you for the chance.

    You do not need to be an artist to attend camp.
    3. I have spent my entire life taking care of someone. Now it is only me at home and I am lost. It is so hard to make solid change when trying to maintain daily life too. I would love to attend Brave Girl Camp to spend a whole week just focused on the necessary change in me, to truly begin to live my truths, to connect with like women being the mirror or feedback for each other as we grow, and to experience what it feels like to really be a part of the pack.

    The message on the rock: “You will be okay”
    Brave Girl Camp is in Star ID
    Why do I want to come? I discovered The Brave Girls Club when I was going through some VERY hard things in my life. The daughter I adopted took us to court last year and forced us to relinquish our parental rights… she is no longer our daughter. We struggled individually and as a family because of this. I just left my oldest and only daughter at college last week (the first to leave). I have found the brave girl blog, emails and quotes to be very inspiring and kept me going through this difficult time. (I even gave my daughter some brave girl quotes to take to college). I’m ready to start healing and moving forward.

    3. I would love to win a camp experience for so many reasons. From the first welcoming hug to the meaningful art and camaraderie with the other Brave Women – my soul would be nourished. I have been through alot with my children, sick parent, stress at work … you name it. But – I have learned that I must continue to nourish myself despite life's challenges. Thank you for offering this chance to experience what I would imagine would be a life changing event!!

    I would love for both of those statements to be true. I am in a rut. I need a way out. I think Brave Girl Camp could yield the direction I seek. I can’t afford to go on my own, so would love to win a spot. Thank you so very much for the opportunity!
    Have a fabulous day :)

    1) “You will be ok!” (love that reminder)
    2) You do not have to be an artist to attend camp, however, (thanks to Melody) I now know that I am an artist!
    3) I have wanted to attend camp for 2+ years & have not been able to go! I would love to experience the sights I see in the videos, eat the food that Kathy & family fix & blog about, hear the river & the horses, and feel the magic thaI I can only imagine happens at Brave Girls Camp!

    #3. I’ve been following Melodie and Brave Girl Camp for several years. I’ve shared links with my daughters and friends. Looking at the photos of all these women with smiles and happiness on their faces leads me to believe that this is an event not to be missed… something all of us should aspire to attend at least once in our lives, to absorb the friendship and expansion, as well as enjoy and learn about creating meaningful art that serves as a reminder to Be Brave and Live Your Best Life! Goo luck to everyone!!!! Hope to see you there! ~Hobby

    3. I want to experience solitude & sanctuary at Brave River Ranch for “me”, alongside other women as we lift one another up.

  135. Diana Skurka says

    1. the message on the rock says that despite all that is going on in my cousins life, all of the trials she is being put through, all of the struggles, all of the emptiness, all of it will eventually fade away and even though i want so badly to be able to help her now, she will once again be on the other side…she WILL be ok.
    2. you don’t have to be an artist to attend camp, you simply have to be someone who wants to be a better person tomorrow than you are today.
    3. i have been following YOU, my BRAVE GIRLS for about 3 years now. the reason i want to come to camp is that I am ready to come full circle..i have taken the gifts of strength you have offered to me online, and I am now ready to give back to those who need it more than me. i want to experience first hand all that you offer, and then I want to come home and do something BIG.

  136. says

    You will be OK. I would love to come to camp. In the process of ‘reinventing myself” and working thru some issues and have found this site, camp, videos, tutorial to be an incredible inspiration! Wait listed this summer, but I am going next year!

  137. Suzy Roundy-Schmidt says

    1. you will be ok
    2. you do not have to be an artist to attend (although I believe we were all born to create)
    3. there are so many reasons I want to attend. The most simple answer is, I want to open my heart back up. I feel like it has closed with each set-back and disappointment in life. I want to open it so that I can fully love those around me. I feel that what I really need is a full immersion so that I can allow myself to be vulnerable and take chances with people around me that I know I can trust.

  138. Nicole says

    1. The rock says: You will be OK.
    2. What’s the name of the Ranch where camp is held? Brave River Ranch
    3. I really want to attend camp because I believe it would be absolutely life-changing to immerse myself in the loving atmosphere while I figure out ME. The support would help me in the process of rebuilding my self, particularly to have others around me reminding me that I AM loved and I AM enough.

    3. I would like to go to camp because I really can’t imagine what it would be like. It has been so long since I felt able to totally let all the walls down and do something “frivolous” like play all day. I have a hard time going 10 minutes without checking my phone or email so an escape like that would be amazing!

  146. Cathy Stewart says

    1) “You will be O.K.”
    2) Brave River Ranch
    3) I have been longing to attend Brave Girl Camp since you started the camp. I have taked Soul Restoration 3x (currently on 4th) online, but I am a procrastinator! Listen to all the videos, read Facebook posts, but don’t make time to do the work. Disappointed in myself! Would love to carve out the time, connect personally with others and enjoy the beautiful solitude of the ranch with beautiful people.

  147. Mimi Swain says

    1) The message on the rock is “You Will Be Ok”.
    2) The camp is called “Brave Girl Camp.
    The campers are brought in on a white bus (it looks sooo fun).
    3)I want to come to camp because at 57 3/4, I have finally learned
    how to have fun with art journals, mixed media, and to let myself go
    and just enjoy the process and accept with joy what I have created.
    To be at this peaceful place with like-minded women would be a dream
    come true, and a beautiful lifetime memory. Thank you!

  148. Lauran Vieland says

    1. You will be OK <3

    2. A BIG SCHOOL BUS takes the gals to CAMP from their hotel
    3. Who wouldn’t want to attend the BGC? I know that I would just jump at such a chance to be able to attend a place so full of encouragement, creativity, and love. I am learning that BRAVERY is only available if we have FEARS that we are willing to face. kinda of an odd combination that one can’t be brave without also being afraid of something. I want to claim the TRUTHS in my life and continue to work towards a RESTORED SOUL. love all of you gals at BGC!!!

  154. Carol Brylski says

    You will be ok.

    ~You will be OK
    ~Brave River Ranch

    ~There are so many women deserving of this amazingly generous and life-changing event, that I hardly feel worthy of asking to win a spot there. But I am drawn to your message and long to find a way of expressing my inner-thoughts, finding out who I really am, and be surrounded by such beauty, acceptance and love. I lost my mom, quite suddenly and unexpectedly at Christmas and have been barely treading through life. She was my very best friend, cheerleader and role model. She (and dad) was there for me and my children while I endured a miserable 25 year marriage. She was my support and encourager when I finally found the strength to file for a divorce and then fight for myself through that 2 1/2 year long ordeal. Now I find myself without her and it’s been numbing to my soul…

    Cheers and Love~Ivy

    2) brave river ranch Star ID
    3) I would like to go to camp because I have struggled with mental health issues my entire life. I have been in 2 treatment centres. One of them I just got out of 5 weeks ago. I have always incorporated art into my treatment. I really enjoyed and got so much out of the online courses and still refer back to the material on an ongoing basis. I would like to go camp to meet girls and develop life long friendships and create healing art. I would like to shine a bright light on my demons and show them that they have no where to hide anymore. It will be painful and raw and awesome and I LOVE that! I know I can do it!

  158. Samantha Hughes says

    1. You will be Ok. <3
    2. You do not need to be an artist to come.
    3. What reason WOULDN'T I like to come for? I am a creative passionate person and I crave that sacred bond between like-minded people. I feel like I've lost my creative spark, like I've been sitting here watching my life pass me by as a spectator instead of a key player. For once I'd like to do something for my soul, my heart and my inner creative child to get me back to being a player and not just a spectator. It would be such an honor and a dream to attend this camp with you beautiful souled ladies!!! <3

    You will be ok
    Brave River Ranch
    I love people! I want to meet as many people as I can in this life in order to share, encourage, cheerlead and basically assist in being the best women we can be! And I want to learn from them, hear their stories and join hands. Then we move out from the camp and seek other Brave-Girls-in-the-making and bump ’em with a little “assist”. How cool would THAT be? Spreading Brave Girl-ism around the Globe!

  162. Elizabeth says

    1. You will be OK
    2. No, you do not have to be an artist to attend. (Though I’d argue that everyone’s an artist of some sort. :>)
    3. I want to attend because Soul Restoration I & II were life-changing for me. I still flip through my SRII journal for clarity, and add things to its companion volume (first one is filled up!) often. I’m pretty sure that attending a live session would make me go all supernova. :)

  163. says

    3. It’s been a dream of mine to attend BGC ever since I took Melody’s Soulbook class at the Creative Connection in Saint Paul, MN in 2011. Through continued work on my own soulbook, I have discovered that I need to take the time and energy to just be, to enjoy and celebrate who I am and all that I can be. I need to heal from my past and move towards the future through the beautifully imperfect moments of the present.

    2. Star, Idaho
    3. Whether or not I’m chosen, I WILL be at one of these camps. Ever since I was introduced to Brave Girls Club I’ve felt a connection the likes of which I’ve never previously felt. I’ve always dreamed of being brave and strong and healthy–emotionally, physically and spiritually. I believe this is what Brave Girls Club and Brave Girls Camp is all about. I’m so grateful for all you do.

    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I would like to thank you in person for giving me so much inspiration and for encouraging me to be brave. I am such a giver and do so much for others that I would like to recharge my batteries at Brave Girl Camp before I begin a non-profit of my own dealing with cancer patients. As strong as I am for others, I have so many fears inside about my own life and THIS WOULD BE A DREAM COME TRUE for me and help me be much stronger for others after I’m able to take a little time for myself.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you for considering me for this wonderful opportunity!

    Weekend Giveaway!
    1. The rock reads “you will be ok”
    2. The ranch is called Brave River Ranch. Hilton is located next to the Boise River.
    3. Why do I want to come to camp? I attempted to do ‘soul restoration’ in an effort to heal from an event that occurred 5 years ago and stripped me of all that I am. Ever since I haven’t been true to myself and who I am. I settle for less then I am and deserve. It’s hard to look back and see how self-destructive I’ve become and am desperately pulling at strings to fix my heart and soul. I’ve wanted to come to camp since I learned about it, but currently don’t have the means to make this happen.
    I want to know I am okay being the person that I am and that I’m loved. A lot of my life is a major secret and so I face this world alone, in isolation and this is the only site I’ve found that somehow relates to me and provides hope.

  177. Lisa says

    1. You will be ok

    2. In the Testimonials section, Kallie tells us about promises she made to herself at camp. What is one of those promises? Kallie promises to develop her musical talents even further. She promises to use those talents to bless others.
    3. I also want to continue to honor my self and my path by communing and learning with you all and pledge to get to a place where I can openly share with others my path to freedom of self-expression and healing. So we can one day all be free. That could happen! That will happen!

  179. Julie Saalfeld Lee says

    1. You will be ok.
    2. You do not have to be an artist to attend!
    3. I would absolutely love to attend Brave Girl Camp because I believe it would be the most beautiful, healing, soul-inspiring experience that I’ve ever had in my life. I’ve dedicated the past couple of years to finally healing and granting myself the opportunity to live a fulfilling, happy life. After completing SR1 & SR2, I yearn for the chance to further learn, explore, create, heal, and beautify this life I’ve been given. Plus, meeting Melody, Kathy, and the rest of the BG staff, along with other campers would be amazing! My soul longs for the experience of Camp, and I am grateful that the Brave Girls staff is so generously giving one very lucky Brave Girl the opportunity to attend. How beautiful! Thank you!

    1. You will be ok
    2. Brave River Ranch, payment plans are available
    3. I would like to attend Brave Girls Camp to continue the work I began in Soul Restoration and Body Restoration. Actually being with other Brave Girls will help me internalize the messages. The time to think and to work on me would be priceless to me.

  187. says

    1.You Will Be Ok (thanks for the reminder)
    2. Star, Idaho
    3. Sometimes it feels like I’m from another planet and most people don’t seem to want me here. I want to stop wondering and know that I am a part of everything around me.

    1. You will be okay!
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I’m ready to MOVE…I’ve been stagnant for so long now and in so many areas of my life….I need something to stir me, to even take a step! Art has always been my “therapy” in my life, my retreat, my comfort! I know that Brave Girls’ Camp would be an experience of a lifetime, and I AM worth it!

  189. Martha Esser says

    1. You will be ok (with a heart)
    2. Star, ID
    3. My soul needs this. It looks like a place where I can be myself, I can let go and feel safe. It looks like a little piece of ‘heaven’ right here on earth. I so need this and if I win, I’m bringing my sister along too. She would love it as much as I would!!

  190. says

    The rock at the end of the video says “you will be ok”. The ranch is in beautiful Star, Idaho. There are multiple reasons why I would LOVE the opportunity to attend the camp, but my main two reasons are: First, I have personally seen the camp save the life of my best friend/sister-in-law. Secondly, I have exerienced a lot in my short 29 years on earth, but now it’s time to get out of survival mode and take care of my heart and soul.

  191. says

    1. You will be Okay
    2. Payment Plans are available
    3. I would like to take the leap into being the whole person that I am meant to be, and something is stopping me. I need help to figure that out. I know I am here for a purpose even greater tham being the wife/mother/friend that I am now. What magic awaits me? I believe Brave Girls Camp would allow me to begin the work I need to do to find out! Here’s hoping this is my year.

  192. carol callaway says

    You will be ok…Brave River Ranch in Starr, Idaho…I want to learn how I will be ok…how to replace all the “you can’t do it” and “you’re such an ugly failure” sentiments in my brain with something that is just a little kinder…

  193. Veronica Bartsch says

    1. You will be ok.
    2. Campers ride the Brave Bus- and everyone can leave their own beautiful mark on the bus.
    3. I want to come to camp to help free myself, to learn how to choose joy, to laugh and play, to meet women who are just like me and who are completely different. I want to come to camp to start the work on myself that I feel is finished and finish the work I have yet to start. I want to heal my soul and learn who I am.

  194. Misty Tongate says

    Wow- Melody as usual you are an inspiration. Thank you for all you do to help the rest of us see things in a refreshing light.
    1. You will be ok.
    2. Brave Girl camp is help at the Brave River Ranch in Star, Id.
    3. I am touched by every message you share with us Melody and I pass these along to my 11 year old daughter. She has a very rare skin disease and has always dealt with the funny looks and stares and comments of people who just don’t get it and can be unkind. She is my BRAVE girl…we have our own private club too : ) Your messages are so valuable and I hold them close to me and I know they will be important for Peyton also. As much as I would love to come to the camp I feel the one most worthy is one of the comments I read above I believe her name was Holly and she is fighting an inoperable brain tumor and although she is a stranger to me, my heart aches for her. So it would be great if she could have a restorative journey….I vote for Holly and my prayers are with her

  195. Angie Radford says

    1. You will be ok
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I would love to go to Camp to bring more self motivation to my everyday life. As a Wife, Mother and Caregiver to My Parents life can be very draining. I feel camp will help renew Me and give Me tools to use everyday in My life and the people in My life.

  196. Stephanie Noel says

    The rock says “You will be ok” words that bring tears to my eyes this morning because I really need them. The camp is held at Brave River Ranch.

    Why do I want to go to camp? Because I need to make human connections. I need to create relationships with women because I need to find kindred spirits. I need to find people who feel the sames things I do. I need to find love, compassion and friendship. The net is a wonderful tool but it’s no replacement for the warmth of a smile and the elation of shared laughter. I was raised by my dad and find it hard to connect with women. This would be the perfect opportunity for me to start.

  197. says

    The message on the rock says “you will be okay”. The camp is in beautiful Star, Idaho. I would love to come to camp for multiple reasons – I’ve seen first hand how Brave Girls Club has helped so many people – specifically my best friend. It’s inspiring to see the difference in her. Secondly, I’ve survived so much in my short 29 years and it’s time to get out of survival-mode and work on rejuvenating my soul. I would love this opportunity :)

    3. Soul Restoration made such a HUGE impact on my whole life, I really wish I could attend camp and continue on that journey!

    2. Star, Idaho
    3. I have completely started my life over! It was terrifying to make the changes that I had to make. I have been guided lovingly “on the other side” where I am now. I found Brave Girls by no accident 😉 and I am getting to know myself day by day. After the dramatic initial changes, the subtler, day-to-day changes have left me feeling stuck and depressed. I would love to have the healing experience that I know going to camp would have. I know I am a Brave Girl and I would love to meet the others in my TRIBE!

  200. Lannette R. says

    1). You will be ok
    2.) Brave River Ranch
    3). I would love to Brave Girls Camp to heal. I want to dig deep and find the real me that is hidden way deep down that is buried under all the lies that I have believed, I know she’s in there! And to be able to do this with other women that feel the same would be amazing. I would be blessed to be able to attend Brave Girls Camp.

  201. Joy says

    1. You will be ok
    2. Brave River Ranch in Idaho
    Want to ride on the brave bus with other brave girls. :)
    3. I could use this time at camp to remind myself ‘who I am’ I am a mother of 3 amazing young adults…but am going through many transitions in life and feeling quite lost…some details can’t be explained on a public forum. But please consider myself for this amazing opportunity. Thank you so much for all you do!

  202. Traccie says

    1, You will be ok.
    2. Star, Idaho
    3. I want to do this because I loved learning to love myself again, when I took Soul Restoration. I want be the person that I know I can be.

  203. Robyn "Georgia" Kelly says

    You will be ok…which almost makes me what to cry. However I DO know that is true!
    STAR, ID
    Why oh why…a mama of three. Only one I birthed but all loved the same. I love deeply, feel a little lost, my babies (2 in 10th and 1 in 7th, 2 furry) are growing up and will fly the coupe in the next few years AND I want to be an artist…and that is, in my mind, the definition of BRAVE. I love you guys. I love what you do. Just that simple. xoxo

  204. Ambrosia Clark says

    “You will be Ok”….and I know I will, even though it gets really tough sometimes. Camp is in Star, Idaho. I would love to visit Star, my grandmothers name was Starly, and I tend to gravitate towards all things Star <3 Five days ago I stepped out in faith and went back to work after being a stay at home mom for the past ten years. It's a huge change for my children, and I'm already seeing some negative affects from me not being here after school. But a second income is going to help my family. It's hard to trust that this is what I'm meant to do. I know God opened this door for me so I'm walking through it nit by sight, but completely by faith and trust! It's scary and exciting at the same time. Being a part of 'The Brave Girl Movement' Means I always have somewhere to go for encouragement, for inspiration, for advice, for compassion, for understanding, for love…and at camp, being surrounded by all of that, well it seems to me that it doesn't get much better! We are all so different, and yet we are all the same <3

  205. Joyce says

    1. The message on the rock: You will be ok.
    2. One of Kallie’s promises is to start breaking down the walls around her heart that prevent her from making deep and lasting friendships.
    3. I desire to come to camp to fulfill the promise I made to myself and to others.

  206. Deborah Todd says

    You will be okay ♥

    Brave River Ranch is next to the Boise River

    I have been on a journey this last 11 months that included new health issues (brain seizures), a separation from my Husband of 12 years, a move from Kentucky to Michigan and financial difficulties from all of these things. I am trying to discover where to go from here and Brave Girls Camp seems like it would be just the thing to help me get started. Thank you for your generous spirit that you show every day and for the opportunity to meet so many awesome and inspiring women. ~ Deborah T.

    2. A school bus
    3. Having faith as you said is everything, it is true. I have put myself ‘out there’ in the universe and my dreams are no longer dreams but reality. Though I live thousands of miles away i would love to come and share your home, art and the be with others of the same mind and share your message. Have faith.

    2. The camp is held on the banks of the Beautiful Boise River.
    3. My time is now, I am ready for a change and am in need of a place free from distraction to do the work I need to make my future plans. I need to be free from the stresses of work and budget to listen to me again and start living the life I want!

  212. Casey says

    Fantastic!
    You will be okay! :) The Hilton Garden Inn is on the Boise River!
    I would love to come to camp to surround myself with the love of all of those other Brave Girls. I love that we all have such different stories to share, but that they all bring us together in the quest to be BRAVE and inspire others to do the same! It’s a beautiful thing, and something that I would love to be a part of!

  213. says

    1) You will be ok
    2) Transportation is on the brave bus! :)
    3) I am ready for a change and to forgive myself, to be allowed to grow in the woman I should have been so long ago. This opportunity to do this in a setting that promotes strong relationships, meditation, surrounded by the natural healing of the outdoors and crafts would be fantastic. Thank you all for what you do!

    3.I would love to attend for the following reasons THe name alone speaks volumes. We women all need to reminded of HOW BRAVE WE REALLY ALL ARE & How BRAVE we have been in our lives. My sincere respect for the work you do for women in really aplorable situations. And the biggest reason for me is my grandma was my rock, my all, my friend & confidant passed away in 2011 at age 87. AS a child she would know things and would always day ” A little Bird Told Me” That would bug me because I believed I was being ratted out by a bird…LOL I was pretty down when a good friend forwarded your daily messages to me, and when i noticed the name ” A LITTLE BIRD TOLD ME” I knew she was with me still. I read all and eveything you put out there. You Ladies are doing a wonderful work. Please stay encouraged to continue.

    3. Attending camp is a dream of mine. 2 years ago I made the bravest decision of my life to leave an abusive relationship along with my 3 children. I can say wholeheartedly that taking the course, Soul Restoration, helped me find the strength to make this decision. I have now dedicated a large portion of my life towards spreading the message of the Brave Girls. I now hold art camps locally for young girls and spread the message of bravery, beauty and love through them. xoxo

  219. Angela says

    I hope I’m not too late!
    You will be ok!
    You don’t have to be an artist to attend Brave Girl Camp!
    I really, really want to come to camp because my heart tells me I’m FINALLY on the right path. I’ve spent my whole life taking care of others and doing what they thought I should do, and NOW, I’m taking care of myself. I’m scared and nervous, but my whole self vibrates with the excitement of learning who I am and seeing the potential inside of me. Brave Girls Club has been a huge part of the process for the last year, and the thought of being able to attend Camp is almost incomprehensible. God bless all of y’all for sharing your gifts!

  220. Melissa says

    3. I would like to visit camp to say thanks in person. I have not been a participant in my life for many years now. I discovered Brave Girls Club and this became a huge catalyst for change in my life. Suddenly, I believed I mattered. Somebody out there, who had never met me, loved me for me. Broken pieces and all. And their authenticity seemed to shine brightest. On my darkest days, you have been there with your encouraging words and inspiring art. My life will never be the same for the impact you have made. I am completing the Soul Restoration course and am realizing so many beautiful things. My work is beginning, I am a participant in this lovely life and you have helped place me on that path. I would like to visit camp to say a sincere thank you. You came along at a time in my life where I believed there was a period, and you showed me there was a comma. Here's to all the Brave Girls out there and to sweet Melody. You matter so much and you are oh so very loved.

    I want to go because recently I found out I have a very rare inoperable brain stem tumor. as a result I can’t see normally ( I have double vision an things move on me) plus other complications as well. I have always loved art. My sister introduced me to art journaling soul restoration 2 and I feel in love with it. It has been so very helpful everyday coping with my new way of life and the perfect creative outlet. I work in it every day. This retreat would be a life changing event and further help me on my way of healing

I’m still in the process of doing my Soul book and it has been so therapeutic -I can only imagine what I’d get from a whole Camp! You absolutely LOVE to attend. Thank you for all that you do :)

    c. I want to come to camp and bring other women from my family, as well as my 11 year old daughter. I have 2 aunts, they have daughters and we’re all connected by a painful past we never get a chance to talk about and yet don’t even need to. We have a joyful present. We all smile a lot and creating is in our bones. My Mama was the real artist of the bunch of us but she passed away last Christmas. We hosted a camp on our own river and called it TASHAJALA, the first sounds of all my siblings names- a name Mom gave the cabin on the river many years ago. I want to come to your camp so that I can reach down and offer up what’s in there from the bottom of my heart.

I’d LUV the opportunity to go to camp-I think it would really help & inspire me! I’m a 23year public school teacher, I love my students-but this is a personal fieldtrip I couldn’t afford w/out $ help. Thank you for your consideration! & for all you do for women!!!

    3. I want to come to camp to reconquer my fear/anxiety that has resurfaced in my life after 25 years. After losing my husband when I was 25 I made many bad choices and would love to really learn to forgive myself and bring gratitude and peace back into my life. I am usually a very strong woman but these past few months I feel I have stepped backward and won’t let that happen. Reading the daily quotes from you guys has helped me so much and would love the opportunity to come to the camp.
    I hope I win….

    2. There are monthly payment plans available.
    3. I would LOVE to come to camp to grow, as a person, a woman, a mother, a wife, a friend, and most importantly as myself. Myself is a concept I am struggling to figure out. Whenever I think about the Brave Girls Club and all that you have to offer, through camps, online classes and support, I feel very blessed and lucky and I know that everything will be okay. Camp would be a fantastic way to connect with other Brave Girls and continue on my quest for “myself.”

    The message on the rock is You will be okay ♥

    Hi Melody and Kathy,
    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity of a life time!
    1. The rock reads “You will be okay”
    2. Kallie made many personal promises to herself, one of them was promising to use her talents to bless others, something I strive for everyday.
    3. I would love the opportunity to attend Brave Girl’s Camp,and learn to open my heart up again to others to share my gifts. After many years of life trials I retreated inwards, and felt that bits and pieces of my soul had been chipped away. I have been following you for the past 2 years and would love to attend in hopes of recapturing what I once was so passionate about and to relearn to be brave and share it with others! I want to learn to be courageous enough to be able to come and take some of the walls down, opening myself up enough to meet and hear other women’s life stories.

  233. Maricha says

    1. What is the message on the rock at the very end of the video?
    You will be ok
    2. Answer ONE of these Camp Trivia questions: (I could answer all of them :)) How do campers get from the hotel to the Ranch each day? What kind of vehicle?
    Ride the Brave Bus from the Eagle Hilton Garden Inn to the Melody’s riverside home (Brave River Ranch in Star ID)
    3. Why do you want to come to Camp!
    Melody, I am so excited that I could win a chance to your ranch. The last few years have been difficult for me. I never made time for myself. I was missing something. When my grandmother passed away last year I decided it is time for me to think of me and help myself first. I searched online for something to help me. Google searched “Help me find me” resulted zero results. :) I wanted a retreat I wanted to get away. I stumbled across brave girls and knew this was it. I tried everything to think how I could afford to go and was not able to make arrangements. I was bummed and added it to my bucket list. I loved the teachings and the lessons I could learn from you. I continued to search and found you were one of the teachers for Lifebook 2013 and for that reason alone I signed up. I am looking forward to your lesson and have leaned so much from my lessons in Lifebook and relit my creativity and helped begin the journey of discover myself. I thank you for that. Your ranch is now one of my dreams to have. My own little art barn. ahhh. :) If won this you do not know how much it would mean to me and I would be forever grateful. Thank you so much for a chance to win a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you for what you do and your messages. Thank You Maricha AKA TheJunkingDataGirl!

    Camp takes place @ Brave River Ranch. (One of the most magical and healing places in the world I might add.)
    My Why is simple – to love and be loved – to laugh and grow and share with others – to shine, individually and collectively – to take in all the goodness and add to it.

  235. Janna says

    The rock says , you will be okay! The place is brave river ranch near star, Idaho. I would love to come to camp to connect with others who are on similar paths in life. And to refresh my spirit! Thank you for the opportunity.

    The message says: You will be okay.
    The most awesome school bus I have ever seen transports the people.

    The message on the rock states – “You will be OK”
    We (the campers) get from the hotel to the Ranch by the Brave bus. It’s an old school bus.
    Oh why do I want to come to camp? To have the time of my life, while making lifelong friendships> something in my heart told me I needed to go to Brave Girl Camp.

  238. SusanG says

    *The rock reads “You will be OK.
    *Some of the answers to the questions: The ranch is called Brave River Ranch near Star ID, We get there by the Brave Girls School Bus.
    *I have been a part of the Brave Girls Club from the beginning. I was an early receiver of the Daily Truths and was one of the lucky women to take Soul Restoration the very first time it was offered. I have wanted so much to be able to attend a Brave Girls Camp. I would love to attend to be able to connect with the beautiful spirits of all the women at camp and share in a special experience together. To be a part of such a loving, nurturing and empowering experience would be amazing. I would like to be able to give of myself and help others to grow in their life’s journey. I would love to attend to grow, forgive and understand myself more completely, but also to be present to those around me who are finding their way.

    Brave River Ranch is next to the Boise River in Star, ID

    I would love to win a chance to go to camp. I have been through a ton of medical problems and I am finally on the other side of them and stronger every day. Going through all of this has made me timid to life, my own life. I have lost my way and faith in myself. I need to start living again and get out of the house once again. I was a strong person before all this happened and I was full of confidence and direction. I feel alone now and not sure how to find my way back. I read all of your posts and really want to come to camp. Please allow me this chance to win and start my road to healing my soul. Thank you so much for all of your posts. They give me hope!!

  246. Deanna Rowen says

    You will be OK. Camp is held at Brave River Ranch.

    I’ve had the amazing experience of attending camp, but I am hoping to win so that my cousin can go. She has Brave Girl Camp on her vision board, and I would love for her to have the opportunity! Camp is the experience of a lifetime!! So much love and goodness happens there. What a blessing to every soul there and forever afterward!

  247. Amy K says

    1. You will be ok. 2) Campers get to ride the awesome Brave Girl Bus to and from camp every day. 3) I’ve been stay at home mom for the past 12 years and I’ve only been away from my kids for about 12 total nights (including 1 night of labor and delivery : ). And while I LOVE my family, I am deeply need time alone every now and then to reconnect with myself and God, preferrably in nature, trees, water and mountains are a bonus! Spending 4 days away at the beautiful Brave Girl Ranch and having time to think, rest, listen, create, feel, continue discovering who I am and what I am meant to do, be with women who love this stuff as much as I do, make new friends on a deep level, and not having to feed anyone sounds pretty heavenly to me!! I’m so happy for whoever gets to go – what a wonderful gift!
    P.S. Sorry, third attempt – other two haven’t posted yet!

    2. Brave River Ranch, Star. ID
    3. I’m ready for a change and I’ve already started with a couple of building blocks, foundational things – but I’m really in need of more – more restoration, more work, more creating, more dream realization. I’m ready to unlearn that which I always though was true so I can awaken and learn the real truths about myself, to reveal the real flower and I sincerely believe that these things and more are available at Brave Girls Camp. So connected to the gratitude of all that BGC has brought and continues to bring to me and all my sisters around the world. Thank you for the chance to win what will be an amazing gift!
    Big love to you all

    My best friend Lori and I have dreamed of being able to attend BG camp from the start and each time we do an online class together that yearning gets even stronger. Your message and way of breaking thru years of crud is so powerful and reaches our deepest hurts. We even play lottery hopingjust to win enough for 2 tuitions since both of us save just for the $100 online classes and camp/travel is out of reach unfortunately

    Keep doing what you’re doing.

  250. Christmas Gainsbrugh says

    That little rock says “You will be ok” (needed to hear that) The bus that takes me is the “Brave Bus” (been riding on that one a lot lately:) I would like to go to Brave Girl Camp because…

    I am 37 years old, my mother passed away suddenly in April, only 2 months after my baby daughter was born at home and mom said she knew the moment she was born because she saw a star streak across the sky in front of a full moon as she looked up from her farm that night. My mother was the most powerful incarnation of love I will ever know. After mom’s funeral in CA, I was waiting at the airport for my plane and noticed an art shop. With baby in sling, I walked in and was comforted and encouraged by one piece of art and wrote down the artist’s name, thinking that my mom was sending me a message….and she was. That name was you, and I have been receiving your Little Bird messages every day since. I am a music teacher, and know that I would never have enough money to attend art camp, but I would love to throw it out to the universe, that my momma in the sky thinks it would be a good idea to help me remember that “I will be o.k.” It has been so hard.

    3. While participating in SR1, I found out that the journey could not end when my login was no longer valid. :) The chance to be there, and experience the journey with other women who need this as much as I do, is a chance to feel the presence of like souls on a wonderful journey of life. There are lots of places where we can go to rest, recharge, and relax, but something tells me that restoration is bold, brilliant, and beautiful at Brave River Ranch. It’s certainly something i can use in the near future.

  252. Julie Urban says

    You will be OK. Star, Idaho. I would LOVE to experience Brave Girl Camp…..I want to meet Melody and play in her world…and become a better me<3because I am worth it.

  253. Shannah Bartle says

    Wow… What a beautiful gift you are giving!
    The rock at the end of your fabulous video tells us, “You will be OK”. (I hope I get to come to camp and discover all these sweet messages hidden around for myself!)
    Kallie promised to “start breaking down the walls around my heart that prevent me from making deep and lasting friendships.” This is a promise I would make too…
    I have been a Brave Girl since the very first online course you offered, and have loved and appreciated every word and lesson you have given me. You changed the way I think and feel about myself (and others), and have been a powerful force of good and love when I’ve most needed it.
    I now know I have the work of healing and forgiveness, nurturing and growth ahead of me, and would be so honoured if I could do some of this alongside you and Brave Soul Sisters. You have created a special safe-haven full of beauty and love at Brave River Ranch, and I will travel from the other side of the Earth to go to Brave Girl Camp! I am truly ready for a change, and to forgive myself for my mistakes. (such a beautiful, beautiful song!)
    My story is NOT over yet!
    Good luck and love to everyone! Hugs, Shannah xox (Australia)

  254. Amber Bertucci says

    1. You will be ok <3
    2. The brave girls get to camp each day by the brave bus
    3. I would love to be given the opportunity to attend camp to have that personal connection with other brave girls. I love the online classes and they have helped me and my soul so much but just imagine so many like minded brave women to share that with… it would be amazing! It would also be great to meet the brave girls' club team as you are all such wonderful people that put your heart and soul into creating this wonderful space.

    2) Brave Girl camp is held at Brave River Ranch in Star, ID
    3) I want to attend Brave Girl camp because taking Soul Restoration online saved me. I know it sounds dramatic but it is absolutely true. The online course cracked open my soul and for the first time in my 40+ years I put down the baggage of my past and walked into MY truth. I would be honored to attend Brave Girls Camp and experience, in person, the soul restoring, truth enlightening, cry cleansing, laugh until our guts hurt, life changing experience. Thank you for the amazing opportunity to win a spot!

Thanks so much for the opportunity to win a spot!! :)

    I would love to attend Brave Girls Camp. My best friend Lille attended the May camp and had the time of her life. It was just what she needed. It’s what I need, too. Plus I want to meet Melody in person!

  260. michelle powell says

    “You will be ok <3", saying on rock….this brave bus I th transportation, it's. An old rustic bus! (Love it!), I want to go to brave girl camp to rediscover myself an find the brave guidelines before the pain an hurt took over. I have taken the online classes each 2 and some three times and feel I need to remove myself from my every day life to Truly rediscover the person I knew and loved and who loved life. Brave girl camp would be perfect for that.

  261. Debra Benson says

    The message on the rock is “I will be OK” Camp is located in the town of Star. I would like to attend the Camp because being brave is a theme in my life right now and it has not easy but I am determined. Your posts resonate with me and encourage me and it would be great to be saturated in an atmosphere of brave inspiration. Thank You.

  262. Alicia Bias says

    1. You will be ok. 2. Brave River Ranch 3. So many reasons that my soul is longing for this, but with all of my continuing medical bills, I will probably never be able to afford it on my own. I know that whoever wins will be blessed beyond words, and so I think it is such a wonderful gift you guys are giving;)

  263. fancyscrapper says

    (1) The message on the rock reads, “You will be ok”.
    (2) You do NOT have to be an artist to attend Brave Girl Camp.
    (3) Why do I want to go to Brave Girl Camp? I need it. My soul needs it. My spirit needs it. These last few years have been the most difficult of my life, and I would LOVE to continue pursuing mental and emotional wellness and health alongside my brave sisters.

    1. You will be ok
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I want to come to Brave Girl Camp because I believe my heart is yearning for it. It’s been calling me for a couple of years now. I just have not been able to swing it. I have made so much progress since taking Soul Restoration 1 and feel like there’s still soul work for me to do. Several of my brave girlfriends have gone and said it was totally life changing. I would love that change for myself.

  265. Pat Passamonte says

    1. You will be OK.
    2. Do you have to be an artist to attend Brave Girls Camp? No, any Brave Girl can attend!
    3. Why do I want to attend Brave Girls Camp? So many reasons, but most of all, to help me to know myself better and to remind me to embrace who I am, and reconnect with the joys of every day life.

  266. Tracy Moser says

    1) You will be ok
    2) Brave River Ranch
    3) Going to camp would be a dream come true. I have taken several of the classes, and they have really changed me. I would love to meet the Brave Girl team, build new relationships, and of course the art! The online classes have been life changing.. I can only dream of what camp would be like!

  267. Noël Brady McBride says

    1-“you will be ok” :)
    2-our goal is to make sure that you have the time of your life while making lifelong friendships
    3- It has already been life changing to simply know about Brave Girls Club. I can’t imagine how much I would learn about myself, others, and art… along with many many many other things… if I were able to attend Camp. Looks incredibly beautiful in every way! I want to be a part of it all!

  268. Renee Farrugia - Mendozzi says

    You will be ok. ♥♥♥

    A big school bus takes you to camp every day.

    I’ve been to camp so I am being selfish to want to go back. I was in a deep place of darkness at the time and I can say it changed my life, the women I met in my group changed my life, the staff at camp changed my life. I stopped doing art and the trip gave me the courage to do it again. (You have a special place in my heart Melody for that). I’d want to go back to experience it in a different way this time, not with so much pain, and well selfishly I’d want to hug Melody, Kathy, Patrice, and all the girls again. I’d fly across the globe for that again. I hope whomever gets this trip knows just how very special you are for being picked. There’s a lot of magic at camp and it changes lives. I’m proof. 😉

  269. Beth says

    *The message on the rock reads: You will be OK
    *The campers go from the hotel to the ranch, in Star Idaho, via bus everyday. (What a wonderful ride that must be !)
    *I would love to attend Brave Girls Camp because I can only imagine the joy and love that the women share while they escape the routine of daily life and live in a beautiful world of creativity and authentic soul searching for a few days. The Art Barn makes my head spin with delight! My family is from the Boise valley, and while I haven’t been there much as an adult, all my childhood summers included a little time there, as well as in McCall. It’s truly a special place to me! It would be an honor to win, but I wish everyone who has entered the best of luck!

  270. Debbie Cagnina says

    Howdy Brave Girls! so love this community! 1) you will be okay 2) Brave River Ranch in Star, ID 3) I’m ready for a change, to find the me that is tucked away, to let myself be BRAVE! 😉 what a wonderful blessing you will soon bestow on one lucky brave girl! thank you!

  271. Angela Emler says

    You will be ok; Boise River; Ever since I found out about Brave Girl Camp my heart has been telling me to go. Brave Girls Club has meant so much to me and increased my ability to discover who I am that attending Camo is the next step for me in my journey.

    you will be okay ♥

    Brave River Ranch is next to the Boise River.

    I would love to come to camp to experience this sacred gathering of women….to nurture my heart & soul…& for the fun of it! :)

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for an extremely generous opportunity!! Many blessings…~H♥~

  273. says

    The message on the rock is “You will be OK.” (I’ve been repeating that one to myself for the past month, by the way.) And the camp is by the Boise River in Star, ID, a place I’ve never been to but would love to see. :) I have been blogging and making art and writing for a while with no particular direction in mind, and I recently made a decision to go back into teaching full-time. While I’m excited about new things, I also have this nagging feeling that I am missing something BIGGER. I came across you Brave Girls online and immediately signed up for the “Little Bird” newsletter. You have no idea how much those have meant to me over the past month. This has been an emotional time, and it felt like a lovely little note of encouragement from the Universe every time I opened it. I want to come to camp because I feel like there’s something more for me and that there is more I can give. I just don’t know what it is yet. But I know it’s there.

  274. Linda Daniels says

    1. You will be ok 2. Cafe Rio Sweet Pork Salad 3. After taking a few of your online classes (Soul Restoration absolutely transformed my life) Brave Girls Camp would be the icing on the cake! All the pictures & testimonies make me long for the learning & loving experience at Brave River Ranch.

  275. says

    The rock in the end of the video says you will be ok. Camp is held in Star, Idaho. I would love to attend Brave Girls Camp to listen to the life stories of other Brave Girls, share my life stories with those who may benefit from my story and so I can have some alone time with my truth teller, God. I realize that part of every day should be spent listening to the voice of truth but like so many women, I find it difficult to put my needs ahead of my children or husband. I have been a stay at home mom for 13 years and am about to embark on the biggest journey of my life… homeschooling my children. What a blessing it would be for me and my kids for me to come to camp and leave with a healthy Soul House centered on Christ and with heart glad for the chance to help others!

  276. says

    The message on the rock: You will be ok. The amazing camp is held in Star, ID :)
    I have taken your online courses and am in love with your work! I am at a place in my life where I am being called to step into my bigger message and purpose and it’s scary and fun. I’d love to be a part of the in person Brave Girls Camp soon! :)

  277. Nancy C. Lorenz says

    You will be OK
    Brave River Ranch
    I would love to come because I would love nothing more than to meet the other wonderful Brave Girls out there! In doing Art Class and Soul Restoration you come to realize that there are others out there who are just like you and everyone has their own mountains to climb, but who better to do it with than other Brave Girls! Other Brave Girls who,have gone through the same things I have. Can I help someone else? Maybe? Can they help me? Maybe? Can a group together help another? More than likely when 2 or more are gathered good things can happen! I would be so blessed. . .such a healing time for all! We all need it sometime in our lives. . . Thank you for the opportunity to try. . .

  278. says

    1. You will be okay.
    2. Ranch is next to the Boise River.
    3. Since I found the Brave Girls camp on Facebook and seen your website I have wanted to come out and play with you all. I really need soul nurturing time away. Art helped me heal me through some very trying times and I know that this experience would be life changing. I put together wellness journeys for writers and others, I would love to experience what you have worked to create.

    Going to Brave Girls Camp is on my bucket list of things to do sometime over the next 10 years and I would love for it to be sooner than later so I can meet you wonderful women in person and thank you for helping get through a very difficult time. To have my virtual led journey become personal at Camp would be a dream come true!

  280. Cheryl says

    You will be okay
    I love art, but no, you don’t have to be an artist–everyone can create!
    I have taken a couple of the online classes and I love them, along with the daily e-mails. I would love to visit the ranch for Brave Girl’s Camp to continue to be inspired, to be with other “souls” and make lifelong friends, for healing the little girl inside of me and to help me remember who I really am after having placed my focus on raising a family for many years. What a wonderful gift this would be–and I would have been thrilled to win a chip art mallet! :)

  281. Jessica says

    (1) you will be ok ❤
    (2) Sample menu item: Turkey Croissant Sandwiches w/ Strawberries and Poppy Seed Dressing
    (3) Camp is in my blood. I went to camp as a teen and then worked there in high school and college and continue to volunteer each summer. I love camp atmosphere, camaraderie and camp memories….no matter what type of camp it is. And I love Brave Girls Club, I read daily truths to the girls in a Girls Club I co-lead and I read my daily truth every morning. Camp is a healing place for me, a place to explore, create, dream, connect….I think Brave Girls Camp would be well for my soul! Shine on Brave Girls!

  282. Jill Vehanen says

    l. You will be okay; 2. Brave River Ranch; 3. I want to come because I knew who I was in high school, completely knew. Since then after raising 2 beautiful daughters by myself, working in high stress jobs, helping my one daughter get through college, going through the empty nest syndrome, and working more stressful jobs. I don’t know who I am anymore. I know I’m still in there, I can feel it so much, but just can’t get me to come back to being me. I know Brave Girls Camp would help me to let me out of myself again, and be who I’m supposed to be. The photos in the video of the Brave Girls Camp are just so awesome and beautiful. Where else could there be to find yourself again. I would love to be the winner of this contest so that I can be the real me, not the me that is so desperately trying to come out.

  283. says

    (1) you will be ok
    (2) Lemon Mousse with Lemon Blossom Cookies
    (3) I have wanted to come for two years-ever since I first heard about it! Brave Girls Camp sounds like one of the most loving, safe, fun, healing, revealing, connecting, and powerful places on the planet. I have been through the most terrible and amazing decade of my life and I have survived in part due to Soul Restoration which I began last August 2012, and which I am alost finished now one year later (am doing the Tune Up page)- and I am a different woman. I want to go chat, and dance, and hug, and create, and share, and inspire- with other brave women like myself- and the Brave Girl Team. Thank you for allowing God to use you all there at BCG, I love you, and I hope that whoever is chosen is who needs to be!

  284. says

    1 you will be ok 2 You don’t have to be an artist to go to camp. 3 I must have at least a hundred reasons that I want to go to camp the biggest reason is because brave girls club has taught me to believe in myself over and over again

  285. says

    1. The message on the rock at the very end of the video is lovely and makes me happy! It says: “You will be okay”
    2. In the Testimonials section, Kallie promised to take care of her body…to get to her right weight and stay there both for herself and for her family and loved ones. I like this one. : )
    3. I want to come to camp because I deserve some time. I had kind of a tough kid~hood and have never gone to camp of any kind. I was not going to enter this as I felt that doing this for myself would not be worth the flight/travel expense. That is BOLOGNA! No matter what (camp or not) I am going be a “brave girl” (with help from my brave girl emails) and take creative time out for myself and also take good care of myself. I already take good care of my family’s needs, but I will also begin to do right by them by setting a healthy example of balance.

  286. Dallas Ackley says

    You will be OK!
    It is held in Eagle Idaho.
    I want to come to camp because I have LOVE, ACCEPTANCE, BALANCE, and CONFIDENCE with the Brave Ladies in my life.

  287. Shauna says

    Melody and Kathy, I just want to thank you so much for this opportunity!

    The rock says “you will be okay <3"

    Kallie wrote, "I promise to start breaking down the walls around my heart that prevent me from making deep and lasting friendships." This really spoke to my heart.

    I really want to go to Brave Girls' Camp because I've never ever been to camp! But more importantly I really need to challenge the belief that women are so scary. I think that being surrounded by creative, loving, and supportive women would help me heal from the lies that I've learned about women (mainly from the women in my life) that make have kept me guarded and reluctant to open myself up to creating "deep and lasting friendships."

    Good luck to everyone!

  288. Kristin J. says

    1. you will be OK
    2. no, of course, you don’t have to be an artist! (good for me!)
    3. Magic and self-forgiveness!!!!

  289. Debbi says

    1. you will be ok
    2. Kallie promised to take care of her body (which of course I should be doing)
    3.I’ve been following the daily posts since 2010…I’ve been longing to do the camp….did do the Body Restoration (and won that class, so maybe shouldn’t be trying for this one???)…I seem to learn better when I’m in a group and in person, versus online. Right from the beginning I felt such a yearning to experience being with Melody and Kathy and learning from them how to be a “brave girl” and create my life as I want it to be and at the same time get to play and be creative. Never thought of myself as creative until later in life, but LOVE, LOVE playing with art and paper and paint and glue……thank you again for such an opportunity.

    3. I’ve been so fortunate-I’ve been to the amazing ranch! But I would love to return because I’m slow to warm up (shy) and I wasn’t able to truly benefit from the experience as much as I know I could have. There’s a retreat that begins on my birthday, June 10th…what a beautiful gift it would be if I could return to such a magical and healing place!

  291. kathleen troeller says

    The message on the rock says You will be o.k. The ranch and hotel are on the banks of the Boise river. I have followed the BRave Girl facebook page and website for quite some time now and have been dreaming of going to BRave Girl Camp. I’d love to join you there in the midst of others all on a journey to open new doors and the flow of creative process, meet and make new friendships, and have the best time ever. I’ d be so excited to win a place at camp to take me to new places on my journey to unlocking more of my true creative self.

  292. says

    1. You will be Ok
    2. No you don’t have to be an artist to attend camp
    3. I would love to visit the ranch because I need a refreshing break to spread my wings with other women in the same frame of mind.

  293. says

    Melody and Kathy, this is a remarkable gift that you are giving someone… may God continue to bless you both for being so generous <3

    1. What is the message on the rock at the very end of the video?
    "You will be OK"

    2. Do you have to be an artist to attend Brave Girls Camp?
    No! ( Even if you don't consider yourself an artist, BE BRAVE! <3 )

    3. Why do I want to attend Brave Girls Camp?

    I've wanted to for two years now.. because the life that I had and the person that I had been was destroyed in the fall of 2011. My husband and his mother tried to have me committed to a mental institution (It didn't work because I was not crazy, but the fact that they tried and lied about it to my four adult children has caused more damage than you can imagine….). That's the first time I have revealed that in public. I lost my 33-year marriage, my four grown children and three grandsons, my home, my business, my personal belongings, my personality, my reputation, my dream, my vision, my hope, and finally, sadly, my faith in everything.

    I have experienced more loss in this past two years: My estranged husband died suddenly last Thanksgiving – so there will never be any kind of resolution there for our children to see. I didn't want to be with him anymore, but his death is a deep wound in my heart. Just two weeks ago today, my best friend of 37 years passed away. She and my mom pulled me out of a very deep depression after my life disintegrated around me two years ago – God's grace and their love are literally the only reason I am still alive. I always wanted to bring her to Brave Girls Camp… and I know that if I come there, she will be with me in spirit.

    I want to come to Brave Girls Camp because my story is not over yet!
    I want to come and continue my healing (I've come SO FAR already!). I want to come and find my 'new creative self' and discover a new dream. I want to come to make new friends – who understand that life can be hard and painful and yet we CAN be brave and survive it all and be ever BETTER! I am ready to see what the next chapter of my story will bring….. <3

  294. Nora Klein says

    1. You will be okay. 2. Brave River Ranch. 3. Ever since my aunt told me about brave girl’s camp I have wanted to come. It sounds like so much fun and I think I could learn a lot from it. I love to create things and this could be a great experience for me. I also want to make lots of lifelong relationships with other brave, spirited, and creative girls like me and every girl out there!

  295. says

    1. The message on the rock is “you will be okay.” 2. Do you have to be an artist to attend Brave Girls Camp? No, you don’t have to be an artist – though from Brave Girls Club’s perspective (and mine, for that matter) everyone is (already) an artist. 3. Why do I want to attend Brave Girls Camp? Oh my! Sure, I have desires to go to Scotland, take my mom to Alaska, travels with my nephews… and I know there are people whose problems are bigger than mine ever have been or lives are far more difficult that mine has ever been.. and while I haven’t had a vacation in over 5 years, when people say “wouldn’t it be fun to go to Hawaii and soak up the sun,” part of me says, “yes,” though the hugest part of my soul, my every fiber says, “I’d love to run away to a place full of sharing, laughter, and creating; some place where I can grow as a person without the stress of a test or having to wait in long lines to see (whatever). I simply want to be in the space of “art and collective creative people.” So that when I come home, I can continue it, by sharing what I’ve learned with everyone I meet.

  296. Laurie says

    1. You will be okay. 2. Brave River Ranch 3. I want to come to the Brave Girl Camp because every time that I think about it I get tears in my eyes for multiple reasons. I want to be Brave, I want to heal, think, make new friends, find myself and let the creative me out! It is a dream of mine to attend the Camp and experience the time of my life!

  297. Vicki Reis says

    1. You will be ok. ♥
    2. Our goal is to make sure that you have the time of your life while making lifelong friendships, and especially that you go back to your life a stronger, more joyful woman, feeling on-track and ready to be exactly who you are and to do exactly what is in your heart.
    3. Found the Brave Girls page on Facebook and have been finding posts with messages that have given me comfort and courage and made me realize I am not the only one who is on this life’s journey feeling the way I feel. I am realizing that I lost my true self a long time ago and am facing many major life changes without the support system I thought I would always have. I am trying to find a place where I fit in as a person, a frustrated creative being and looking for a meaningful career to support myself and having no idea how to restart my life.

    1.you will be ok 2. Brave river ranch 3. A dream come true if I could ever make it to the Brave Girls camp. I have signed up for on line classes but come to an emotional stumbling block. I lost my mother a few years ago after her battle with mental illness and addiction. Before her death, I was a huge scrapbooker but now cannot get through a layout or looking at pictures without breaking down. I want to be brave and get back to doing a hobby I loved.

    Riding the Brave Bus from hotel to camp.
    I really need some time & space to heal my heart and soul after losing both my parents. I find art and craft is a soothing and inspiring use of my mind, emotions, and body. I think your camp would be a wonderful adventure.

    1. you will be okay 2. brave river ranch 3. huge dream to get to come to brave girl’s camp..have taken s1 and s2 and am retaking s1 right now…getting so much more out of it this time round but would love to do this with a group of women and make life long friendships…i’ve been a hairstylist for 28 years and this year i will not be renewing my license …i feel like God is calling me to go to women’s retreats and bible classes etc and teach visual prayer journalling…it has truly changed my life and i believe it will really help a lot of women…but oh so scary….how will i make a living….God will make a way… i must be BRAVE.

    3. I was fortunate enough to attend Brave Girl Camp in October 2012. From the first moment I read about Brave Girl Camp, in my heart I knew it was right for me and it truly was. It was one of the most unique amazing experiences I’ve ever had. On the last day of camp I kept thinking to myself that I was one of the luckiest girls in the world to actually have the opportunity to experience this. Although it only lasts for 4 days you come home with so many tools to continue on your Brave Girl Journey. Would I love to attend again? Absolutely, I hope someday to return and again have the chance to continue my growth in the the safe, loving, fun environment at Brave River Ranch with the incredible, caring staff in the lovely state of Idaho.

    1.) You will be okay.
    2.) Star, idaho.
    3.) I want to go to Brave Girls camp because Soul Restoration, Art camp, and Body restoration have helped me through adversities, like my eating disorder, severe depression, and helped me get to where I am in my life. My father has recently died and Melody has been an inspiration for me to get through it. I am now a freshman in college and I am working on building a community and reaching my dreams. I took my truth cards and I am now making journaling a priority so I can save my memories from college. It would mean the world for me to go to the camp and build friendships, but most of all I want to continue to grow and do art like my father has always wanted me to do. Thanks.

    To be able to come to camp would be like seeing a little piece of heaven…. peace. The video you posted really says it all about the way I feel. It was so beautiful; it gave me tears. A couple of years ago my Gram became very ill so she moved in with me. We knew it was getting close to her time; but still, we just did not want to hear that she was going to die. She had always been there for me. She had taught me everything from makes up, cooking and sewing. And nobody ever left her house hungry without a new story she would tell. She made me strong. I was very lucky because God allowed me to take care of her, and I got to tell her how much I loved her. I was with her, by her bedside until her very last breath. I miss her so…. and a piece of me went with her. A chapter of my life was closed, and I can not seem to get a new one opened. There is a light but I can not seem to find the peace within me. I am hoping camp could help me to find myself again, to love my husband and children again with open arms. I feel lost, and I want to be able to forgive myself for my feelings of anger, and resentments, and to know that all will be okay. To be able to meet and make new friends, who face challenges every day, and to grow with one another on such a short journey would be very rewarding. I truly believe this would be a way to help restore my soul.

    How do you get to Brave Girl Camp: Brave Bus!
    I want to go to Brave Girls Camp because I want the chance to meet the women of the Brave Girls Club, learn from them in person and experience something completely new and different in a part of the country where I have never been. Brave Girls has been such an inspiration to me to love more, live bigger, reach out to others and love myself! Bonding and creating with other Brave Girls seems like the perfect way to spend 4 days of my life.
    Win or lose, Brave Girls has changed my life and i will be forever grateful for all you do!

I have grown wings because of all the amazing words and phrases and art Melody and Kathy share here!! I am a BRAVE GIRL !! The past 2 years were the hardest of my life with a major lawsuit and losing a major part of our income. Brave Girl Camp is just a dream for now and I would so LOVE to make it a reality!! Thank you SO MUCH girls for ALL you do! You have helped me find my heart and art and have helped me live the life of my dreams. There is sooo much learning and growing to do still and Camp would be AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3. The thought of attending a Brave Girls Camp makes my creative heart jump up and down! I have watched the videos, read the testimonials and looked at all the pictures of women who are discovering their innate creative selves. There is no special reason I should be able to come over any of these other wonderful women who have dreams of attending. It would just make me so happy. You all have such an impact on so many women in my personal circle of life and when I think of all the other circles of life out there, you have to know you are doing what you have been called to do. Thank you so much for sharing yourselves with us!

    1. You will be ok. (4 simple words I really needed to hear this week)
    2. Brave Girls Camp is held at the Brave Girls Ranch in Star, ID. Campers ride the magical white school bus to get there.
    3. Because I’m still in restoration. And the words, “Everybody wants to love. Everybody wants to be loved, ” make me salivate for BG food. :)

    1.you will be okay 2. The Brave River Ranch 3. I’m ready for a change, actually a new beginning is more like it! In the last 3 yrs I’ve gone through some life changing trials & I’m still feeling lost. After 11 yrs of marriage the love of my life shattered my heart & told me he didn’t love me anymore. The next year he & & my best friend, a sister to me, became an item. Never saw that coming.. In the midst of it I had a routine MRI for my neurology Dr. (I was diagnosed with epilepsy in “98”. On the scan showed I had 2 blood clots on my brain. I ended up having a double craniumony. At one point in the hospital I felt that I wasn’t coming out. It was scary. But I have faith in GOD & I know he has something special planned for me. I’m truly blessed that I am alive & want to give back too. I’ve spent a lot of my marriage trying to be a good wife & make my husband happy because I love him. Even now when I asked for the divorce I find myself still trying to right by him. I’m not sure I know how to make myself happy anymore. Or know what my purpose in life is.. I do know I love art, I have faith in God, I believe I have a good heart & would love to give back & see other beautiful ladies believe in themselves again & know they will be okay! I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for you & all those much needed inspirational positive posts!! I smile & believe in myself a lil more every time I see them! I’ve been wanting to take classes or come to the ranch but I know I’ll never be able to afford it.. I’m ready for a new beginning! Thank you so much, again!! You are truly amazing!

I’ve taken all of your online courses and as a psychotherapist for kids your classes help me stay focused and living my best life so I can in turn help others live their best lives! I’ve always wanted to attend camp, I look at the pictures and hear the stories of women who have went and it sounds like such an amazing journey. I would be so humbled and privileged to join you guys.

  314. says

    “you will be okay”; BGC camp is held in the town of Star; I want to attend camp to have the opportunity to work on my personal growth and on my creativity and art. In looking toward 2014 and 2015 I’m not sure what exactly that time will hold. However, my soul mate and husband is very ill with a fatal illness and likely will no longer be of this earth by then, which is horribly difficult to even say. I cannot imagine my life without him..and I have children to be strong for, including a special needs adult child. I think BGC camp would be something incredibly positive for me during a time when I know it will be hard to face each day and continue on. Thanks so much for the opportunity. Peace to your hearts, Sara

  316. Samantha Miranda says

    Hi #1. You will be O.K.. #2. The girls get to the Ranch each day by bus. And #3. Attending a Brave Girl Camp would be a dream come true for me. After having a 22 yr. unhealthy relationship end, I know I am brave. But somewhere along the way I forgot how to dream…don’t even know where to start. I feel like going to camp might help me find the key to unlock that. That and just being around so many brave girls would be inspiring…and FUN!!! Thanks for the chance!

  317. Cynthia Jacobs says

    1. The rock says “You will be okay” – just what I needed to hear right now!
    2. Brave River Ranch, what an amazing center for spirit now!!!
    3. I am an expressive arts therapist, I work with extremely disadvantaged substance abusing pregnant women and mothers, I give from my heart all that I can, but I am depleted! I so need to have time to rejuvenate my own spiritual center but as long as I work at the agency I do, I will never make the kind of money to be able to attend the Brave Girls camp. Still, I’m putting attending either next year or in 2015 at the top of my bucket list! PS I have had my clients make the Brave Girl cards and I’ll be sending them in soon for your next adventure.

  318. says

    1. You will be okay. 2. Star, Idaho, Brave Girl bus. 3. I am in the middle of the online class Soul Restoration. It has already had a huge impact on my life! The online connections with the other women in the class has been so helpful and supportive — I love good women! This experience is just the beginning for my growth. I cannot imagine how life-changing it would be to actually be in the environment, with all the different women and the stories and support. What friendships there will be. I am 53 yrs old, and I am ready to live the rest of my life the way it should be lived!

  319. Beth Seibel says

    Hello! The rock says “you will be ok”….glad to know! Brave River Ranch is located in Star (fitting!), ID where the Boise River is nearby. I would love to attend camp to connect with others who are seeking understanding, fulfillment, and learning. Many changes and transitions happening so this would be timely and ever so helpful! Thanks!

    This is absolutely amazing. The woman who receives this awesome prize will be blessed in abundance!

    1) you will be ok
    2) The camp is located at Brave River Ranch
    3) My personal journey has been happening for 37 years. The past 2 1/2 has been particularly hard. Having a rough childhood and not being nurtured has led to a life of my not knowing how to find and recognize joy. This “joyless” life is rubbing off on my oldest child. I cannot bare this. know a change in me will mean a change in him. I need to model joy and this camp would be life changing for him and me both. Your daily emails make the difference in my day. Such wise words in a power packed message. I share them often with friends. Thank you for the work you do and for the love you put in the universe. You are so very loved, Brave Girls Melody and Kathy. Thank you for this.

  321. Susan Houseman says

    1) You will be okay. 2) Star, ID. First let me thank you for Brave Girls Club, your on line class “Soul Restoration” helped me prepare for this years changes. Huge family changes which included, my boys moving out on their own, husband’s new job, a new house, moving to a different city/state, just to name a few. The past seven months has helped my daughter and I to forge an even closer bond because of what I learned about myself in Soul Restoration. My dream would be for my daughter (who is a junior this year) to have this wonderful experience of sisterhood in person. My daughter is an amazing young women, who has so much to offer the world, and I know this would be a wonderful creative environment for her to make life long memories. Of course, I would love to be included in her journey. xxx susan houseman

    1) You will be ok. Camper’s ride in the Brave Girl bus each morning. The inside is decorated with pearls of wisdom from previous campers.
    I would like to come to BGC again to experience the joy, compassion and love that you all give to the lucky campers. Oh, yes, to spend hours in the art barn also! Thanks for this chance.

    1. You will be okay.
    2. Brave Girls white bus.
    3. I have been following Brave Girls Club for some time and have enjoyed your daily posts on FB. So many of them are so clear and what I need to know for that day, amazing. I have been trying to personally get unstuck for many, many years after having lost myself in a marriage that had a lot of illness in it. Your posts have helped me so much. I had looked at the video before about the Brave Girls Club and said to myself that some day I would love to go there. It looks like so much fun and lots of healing; unfortunately, I know that there are too many other expenses first, but who knows, maybe there will be a some day that I will be able to arrive on that white bus of yours and enter into a surreal world for a week. Good luck to whomever wins. Thanks for this opportunity. You ladies are the best! Your FB page is the best thing that could have happened to me over the last 8 months, realizing that there are many out there like me, and not feeling so alone any more. Making those better days work!

    Hello everybody! Here are my answers: 1) The rock says: “You Will Be Okay”; 2) The Ranch is Brave River Ranch; 3) I want to come to camp because I know it to be one of the most loving and peaceful places in the world. Thank you so much!! Katie Vollman

  327. Kimberley Winterbauer says

    1) You will be OK. 2) No, you don’t have to be an artist to attend camp. 3) i turn 50 (did I really just write that correctly!!) in about six weeks which means I’m beginning to take a good look at my life. I survived an eight week course of IV antibiotic treatment for a bone infection recently so that combined with my upcoming birthday make me want to do something I’ve wanted to do for some time-attend Brave Girls Camp!!! It’s time to get out and celebrate life and all it has to offer.
    Thank you for a fun opportunity!!

    2. Cheesy Pull-Apart Bread
    3. I want to go to Brave Girls Camp because every time I watch a video about Brave Girls Camp, I have tears streaming down my face. My heart and soul yearn for that kind of connection and healing so that I can be the Brave Girl that I am meant to be. I love the part on the Brave Girl Camp page where it says that it gets our feet back on the right path – that’s so perfect for me because I feel so lost and out of touch with who I really I am. I’ve put others’ needs in front of mine for so long that I can no longer hear my own voice in my head. The art, the connection with other women, the setting and scenery – I need that to rediscover who I am and to then go out and do my part to make the world a happier, more beautiful place.

    3. Going to a Brave Girl Camp is on my bucket list. I’ve taken both SR 1 and SR 2. I’m currently re-taking SR 1 because although learned so much about myself the first time, I decided I’d finally had enough of the corporate world and will be retiring this fall. In entering this new stage of my life, I’m finding that those lies are starting to creep back into my life so I want to re-acquaint myself with my truth teller and allow her voice to become prominent once again. Another item on my bucket list is to learn to open myself to others and it seems as though attending a Brave Girl Camp would be just the place to finally learn to lower the huge walls I’ve erected around myself and be free. Plus I can’t remember the last time I took a real vacation (other a few long weekends) and I can’t think of a better place to go. The ranch and the town look beautiful!
    Thank you Melody and Kathy and all the other Brave Girls for all you do.

  330. Sarah Leishman says

    ❤You will be ok. ❤ Camp is in Star ID.
    I have 4 daughters and 1 son. I know that the things I learn there can help me to be a better mom, an help me to teach my girls how to be stronger women both in the gospel and out. I could also really use some time to reguvinate and re find out who I am an who I need to be.

I’ve spent too many years ignoring what was wrong and now facing my life is proving difficult to do. I could use the support and the affirmation.

    3. I’ve been intrigued (obsessed) with Brave girls ever sense my sister and I read about it. I would absolutely love the chance to attend.

  345. Catherine Halpin says

    1. You will be okay
    2. When the Brave Bus pulls up to the Brave Girl Ranch along the Boise River, with your payment plan is completed and your understanding that you don’t have to be an artist to come to camp, you anticipate the delicious treat & experiences ahead of you that includes meeting 12 new BG friends, growing in your promises to be the true you and then the moment when you can bite into something like the Lemon Mousse with Lemon Blossom Cookies! Simply a delight for the heart, mind, soul (and tastebuds to tummy too!)
    3. My own experience with BG over the months has enlightened me so much. Having hardships, trials, joys and peace in my life, I believe that spending time will allow me to grow further and by doing so will enable me to share the empowering spirit/mission with others. I’m about to embark on a new career path and know Brave Girls will be something I can bring into my work… to help me and others I work with. Shakespeare said it “To Thy Own self be True and Thou Canst be False to Anyone.” Being at camp would mean not only to work on my truth yet I’ll be able to help bring truth to others too. It’s more than just something for me. It’s like in my family…it’s not about Give & Take – it’s about Give & Share. By going to camp it will strengthen and learn more in order for me be true to this and to give back to others ten fold! Thanks!

    1) You Will Be OK❤
    2) Star, Idaho
    3) I really want to go to camp so I can feel what its like to breathe in wide open beautiful spaces. I have a need to feel what that feels like. I need to learn to be who I wanted to be and not who I currently am. I need tweaking, healing and a rest right now after loosing a loved one and turning 50 within a week of each other,so that I can grow and become who I was meant to be. I used to be artistic and have lost that. Leaving my family and doing something for myself without anyone I know by my side would be a very brave thing for me and I believe just what I need at this time to be OK❤.

    2. Camp is held at Brave River Ranch
    3. The past few years have just been particularly difficult but I still have hope that everything will be okay….I’m ready to try and fly again. Plus, I have been a follower of Melody for many years and would love the chance to meet her and the rest of the Brave Girls in person.

  352. says

    1. You will be ok.
    2. Campers ride the big white Brave Bus from the hotel each day.
    3. The Soul Restoration class helped me in ways too personal to write in a post. I’d love the getaway, the chance to step back and look at my life’s work and to connect with other women walking their own journeys.

  353. Christy Moore says

    1) “You will be Okay”
    2) Our goal is to make sure you have the time of your life.
    3) Braves girls camp is something I have wanted to do for awhile. After I heard all the wonderful stories and life changing experiences my best friend Tanya had while there, it has now been added to my bucket list. I know that when the time is right I too will have opportunity to be blessed and attend the Brave Girls Camp. What an amazing place to be inspired!! Good Luck to everyone that has entered this contest.

  354. KathyC says

    The message on the rock “You will be OK” is something I’ve been telling myself for the last several years. It’s been a long journey ….and it’s not going to be over any time soon. I have promised myself, much like Kallie, that I will “take care of my body…to get to my right weight and stay there both for myself and for my family and loved ones.” I have lived through 100% of the road blocks that I’ve either run, or been slammed into. And I will continue to survive….. but I want more than that. I want to THRIVE. I think Brave Girl Camp offers an experience that I won’t find anywhere else – the combination of community, art, and open hearts and minds that offer encouragement and support – and even the honesty of tough love – is exactly what my heart and soul are craving.

  355. Amber M says

    1. The rock say .” You will be ok”

    3. I would love to attend brave girls camp to rekindle what i know about myself including bring strong and capable and worth it.

  356. Laura Hanna says

    1. it will be okay
    2. The brave girl bus will deliver me to brave girl camp
    3. The last year has has been a tough one as I have gone through a divorce and in the process I have lost friends and family. I have spent the time learning who I am on my own, tried to listen to my truth teller and discover who Laura is all by herself. As the single mom to three teenage boys it would be lovely to spend time among strong women, to find a safe place where I can decide where to go with the rest of my life.

  357. says

    Oh what a wonderful Give-a-Way!!! Going to keep my fingers and toes crossed!!

    Here are my answers!

    1. You will be okay ❤

    2. Brave Girl Camp is held at the Brave Girl Ranch in Star, Idaho. You get to The Brave Girl Ranch from the hotel by riding on the Brave Girl Bus (a very special yellow school bus), with master driver Jeff behind the wheel to get you there safely! You don’t need to be an artist to attend Brave Girl Camp! And there are payment plans available! (…like eating potato chips, I couldn’t just answer ONE of the Trivia questions…)

    3. Attending Brave Girl Camp has been on my Wish List ever since I learned about this wonderful group! In fact, I registered to attend this year’s June session, but due to finances, sadly had to cancel. Even though I haven’t made it to the Brave Girl Ranch yet, I’ve met so many incredible people and made some wonderful Brave Girl friends through the Brave Girl website, the online classes I’ve taken, and the Facebook page! My faith is steadfast that I will one day get to go where the peace is and experience this very special gathering! thank you, Melody, Kathy and the Brave Girl Club team for all that you do to make each of us feel better in our own hearts! XoX

  358. Kathie Scott says

    You will be ok in Star Idaho. I have heard my friend Dianne praise your camp for the last couple of years and I would love to explore a side of me that is untapped. I have never thought of myself as a creative person but I think there might be one in there somewhere and I would love the opportunity to explore that while being surrounded by a nurturing environment.

  359. Julie Decker says

    1. You will be ok
    2. Star, Idaho
    3. I would love time to be me. I have been married for 17 years to a man who was an addict up until 2 years ago when he had a stroke. I no longer take care of the man with a drug addiction but now take care of the man with stroke reprocutions. We have a 14 year old son that we both love dearly. I do not complain about the path I have chosen, I believe God has put me here for a reason. I would just love time to find Julie…it’s been a long time since I’ve seen her.

  360. Jessica Justice says

    1. You will be ok
    2. you do not have to be an artist.
    3. I have wanted to attend camp for the last 2 years. I have just lost my marriage, my home and my church. I’m trying hard to be brave and embrace these challenges. It is SO hard. I need to learn to be okay with being on my own. I have a deep rooted fear of abandonment from being neglected as a young child. I need this so so badly.

  361. says

    Breathtaking video!
    1. you will be okay.
    2. Brave girl camp is held in Star, Idaho.
    3. I want to attend Brave girl camp for so many reasons. It has been the longing of my soul & heart for so many years. I want to be surrounded by a community of women (like me) who are seeking braveness, creativity and joy. I want to re-write my story from a place of truth and to let go of the lies that have kept me stuck. And I want to bring back all the beauty & lessons of Brave girl camp to bless my family, friends and patients.

  362. Erin Strole says

    1. You will be okay

    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. It has been my dream to go to brave girl camp. I feel this is a place God could renew my spirit and where I could get help while giving it. So often I give without getting back and it seems that brave girls are all about sharing not taking. I want to use my talents for furthering His kingdom and I desperately want a part of that journey to be at Brave Girl Camp. Xoxo

  364. Rachel Morgan says

    What an amazing gift!
    (1) You will be ok.
    (2) The ranch is … “nestled along the banks of the Boise River in the sleepy little town of Star, Idaho….”
    (3) I love The Ranch and everything you do for women everywhere. And, personally, I have a hard time forgiving myself, and I often forget that I really will be ok. I would love the opportunity to help other women learn that message, too. <3

  365. says

    What Ann opportunity this will bring to one lucky person! Thank you!

    1. You will be okay.
    2. Brave River Ranch, by way of the Brave Bus
    3. This is a tough, and yet easy question…I’m a wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, co-worker, and hidden somewhere underneath it all, I’m me. The me, that has dreams of helping other people find who they are and encourage them to becoming the best them possible….and yet, how can I do that, when I can’t look them in the eye and say “I believe in you, because I believe in me. I’ve been there and overcome those feelings of fear, inadequacy, what ifs, and what now’s….and I know you can too.” I know it’s in me…I have a page and starting a blog to reach out to women…to let them know someone believes in them and supports them. We can be our biggest fan and biggest critic….so this camp would help me ‘re-fill my soul with FUEL’ (fellowship, understanding, experience, and laughter).

  366. Tonya Pleggenkuhle says

    1. You will be okay.
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I would love to come to camp to explore my true inner self! Too many of us walk through life numb to everything around us- just going through the motions to survive. I don’t want that anymore.

    2. Star, ID
    3. I would love to come to Brave Girl Camp so I can learn the tools I need to be “me” again. To heal and restore and make some new lasting friendships.

  368. Mary Anne Edmiston says

    1) You will be okay
    2) Brave River Ranch
    3) I really want to go to the camp because I am doing soul restoration online and I absolutely love it! After a lot of upheaval this last year with a divorce and a move I want to find out where I belong in this world, I want to feel like I have a place and a purpose :)

  369. Kim Lastrina says

    1) You will be ok
    2) brave river ranch along the Boise River in Star, Idaho
    3) For the last 6 years I’ve been a stay at home mom to 2 beautiful girls and have poured my heart and soul into being a good mom. But along the way I have not taken enough time for me and have lost myself. I have had a few really bad things happen to me the last 2 years and have made some changes. But i’m not there yet. When a friend told me about your facebook page and i started getting your daily messages, i literally cried at each and every one. There is something about your messages that touch me to my inner core. I find them to be inspiring and I look forward to your message every day! I would love the chance to come to your camp where I could spend the time truly on me. What a gift. What a blessing. Thank you for the opportunity. I do feel loved. :)

    3.I want to come to the Brave Girls Camp, in 2015 so I can bring my daughter for her 21st Birthday, so she can have her hurting soul enriched… so she can feel whole, and loved… and at peace for the first time in forever.

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to make someone's dreams come true!

    Love from Australia! <3

  372. says

    1. You will be okay.
    2. Camp is located at Brave River Ranch in Idaho.
    3. I’d love to come to camp to recharge and recuperate. I’m a full-time nursing student and graduate in 2015 after what seems like years and years of school. Art has always been my first love, and to have an opportunity like this to really reset my thought process and focus on ME for once would be phenomenal. I’d also love the chance to focus and learn how to forgive myself and really believe that last statement of “You will be okay.” I was recently introduced to BGC by a friend and never looked into it– but now i’m so very glad that i did. <3

  373. MaryAnn says

    1. You will be ok

All my kiddos are in school all day, my business is rolling along, yet needing intrinsic inspiration, my soul feels thirsty for camaraderie, thirsty for soul filling art, thirsty to be a part of something special. I dream of being a part of this life changing sisterhood. :) Best of luck to all the ladies!!

  377. says

    (1) you will be ok ♥
    (2) Brave Girl Camp
    (3) I have done 2 of your on line classes and loved them! They have helped me heal in ways I never thought possible. I still need healing and know nothing would be better than to enjoy an amazing retreat with Melody and all her amazing Brave Girl helpers. I love brave girls, and I am waiting, praying for my opportunity to join in person, in Beautiful Idaho at Brave Girls Camp!! Thank you for everything you are doing, you are changing lives in such a beautiful way!! Amazing!!

  378. says

    1 You will be ok! 2. Star is city Brave Girl Camp takes place. 3. Why do i want to come to BGC – why not? Be surrounded by wonderful talented & spirit filled ladies, to have an opportunity to further my journey after taking soul restoration 2013 & have a girl vacation from my male dominant household to be surrounded by more craft supplies and fun than one can image??? Hello? Dream come true for me…

  379. Jennifer Swan says

    1. You will be ok.
    2. Boise River
    3. I would love to attend camp to figure out how to nurture my spirit and find a creative outlet for my grief that I’ve been letting cripple me since my Mom died almost 5 years ago. I’d like to be a better role model for the girls in my life and help them realize their full potential as they grow into women.

  380. says

    1. You will be okay
    2. No, you do not need to be an artist.
    3. I have been searching for a very long time to find something to help me to heal my soul. Of all the things that I have tried (both paid for and not), Brave Girls Club is the only one that truly values and honours the journey a woman takes in her own life. It doesn’t matter what her faith, what her story might be. What matters is that it is her journey to take back to wholeness, and Brave Girls Club facilitates, without judgement or prescription, the path she needs to take to find her way back to herself and to find what living a whole-hearted, fulfilled life means to her. Through all of the emails, facebook posts and starting the soul restoration course, I have continuously felt truly valued as an individual, but very much part of a tribe that truly loves me. And at the end of the day, all we want is to be valued and loved. That is why I would give my all to be able to meet Melody and Kathy, who give so much, who love so much and who touch so many lives. That would be an honour.

  381. Marybeth says

    1. you will be ok. 2. brave river ranch 3 I had a sudden critical illness in December that I have been recovering from. I was blessed with a second chance at life and am trying to live life to the fullest the second time around and do it right. I have a lot to learn and feel that Brave Girls would set me sailing in the right direction.

  382. Dani Mathison says

    1. The rock reads: “You will be ok <3"
    2. Payment plans? Of course!
    3. I had an opportunity to attend camp in March, 2013. Since then, there continue to be lots of life changes and, on August 1st, I declared the next 12 months to be "Dani's year to Eat, Pray, Live!" A second opportunity to attend Brave Girl Camp would truly be icing on the cake of this adventure of self-discovery. WOW – what an awesome opportunity :)

  383. Vicki H. in Canada says

    1) You will be okay.
    2) The camp is held at Brave River Ranch.
    3) I’ve been feeling in a kind of rut of complacency in my life for the past several years. There are things I’d like to change, but just seem unable to, and I’m not sure what’s wrong with me for that and how to overcome it. :( There are certainly positive things about my life too, but many other areas that I need to improve on and gets me frustrated and stressed out sometimes. I want to evolve into a better me and stay there (or continue to get even better!).

  384. says

    * You will be okay <——– Love this.
    * Brave River Ranch <———-Love this too.
    * As a mom to a three year old living on a school teacher's salary this would be a dream come true! Our sweet little family has had its share of adversity but the lessons I have learned from my truth teller keep pulling me through. What an amazing gift to share with on of the brave girls! Thanks Melody & Kathy!

  385. Denise says

    1. You will be okay. 2. You do not need to be an artist to attend. 3. I have been feeling a little lost and want to find myself and inner peace again.

  386. Nancy McIntyre says

    1. You will be okay. 2. The Brave Bus gets us from the hotel to the ranch. 3. I feel anxious, tired, scared and less-than. STUCK. I want to have purpose, move forward, make a difference.

  387. Laurie Thomas says

    1. You will be ok. 2. Brave River Ranch. 3. I am realizing that I have never really connected to anyone and am afraid that I never will. I know that I have let opportunities pass me by because of fear. What else have I not showed up for in my life because of that? I am ready to make changes and to “show up” to make that happen. I am finally ready and willing to invest in myself, to put myself out there and learn more, do more, BE more.

  388. Rita King says

    #1 You will be Okay

I want to look at him with love and respect. I am so tired of hurting inside cause I am been badly hurt. I want to know that love does heal everything. I want to have an amazing marriage.

  392. says

    1) you will be OK
    2) The Brave Bus
    3) I’m feeling stuck and scared on many levels in my life: creatively, inspirationaly, business wise, career wise, financially. I need to do some serious soul searching about what lies ahead and I am sure that spending some quality time with some quality souls might be just what the Dr ordered. I would love, love, love to have the opportunity to take part in Brave Girls Camp but simply can not afford to go at this time.

  393. Ann Lynch says

    1. You will be ok
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I want to go to camp because I need a change in my outlook on life. I am very fortunate in life with friends and family but finding love in my life has been a struggle. I am starting to not believe and I never felt that way. I love to surround myself with positive people (it helps with my anxiety) and I know this camp has nothing but that! Thank you

  394. says

    1) You will be ok
    2)Yes there are payment plans!
    3) I found out about Brave Girls Club when looking around the internet when we began our journey to adopt a baby (we are still on that journey) I think because I saw the Little Bird Told Me book in the BIB baskets for Birth Moms. I immediately felt drawn to Brave Girls Club and know that camp would be an incredible experience. I just know that this camp is something I am called to do and I can’t wait until I have the opportunity!

  395. Linda Esterley says

    1) you will be ok

    3. Brave Girl Camp would be a Dream come true!

  398. Patty Pittala says

    You will be okay. Just get on that bus and go to Brave Girls Camp where you will have the time of your life! Artist or not, you will leave there knowing yourself a whole bunch better.
    Brave Girls came into my life at just the right time. They helped me to focus on needed changes like no other resource ever did. I would be blessed and honored to be a part of a camp experience. The quote ” but she did it anyway” changed my life! :0)

  399. Julie Cordwell says

    1) “you will be ok.” (with a cute little heart next to it)
    2)”the Boise River is just steps from the Ranch.”
    3) I want to come to the Ranch to further the journey back to my Soul. I was introduced to Soul Restoration through the Bountiful Basket Cooperative and am now taking Body Restoration. More than anything, these classes have brought me back to taking care of myself, honoring myself and wanting to be well for myself and my family. Thank you Melody and Brave Girls from the bottom of my heart. Love, Julie

  400. MonaLisa says

    1. You will be okay.
    2. Star, Idaho
    3. I’m in Soul Restoration now and already into week 3 it is changing my life. I’m finding so much spunk & courage I knew I had, but not how to access it. I would loooooove to come to camp to continue to build on this and not only grow, but be a blessing to others lives as well. 😉 Thanks for this opportunity!

  402. Zewa says

    1) “you will be okay”.
    2) The Brave River Ranch!
    3) I want to come because we seriously need some brave girlshere in Europe. I want to be your messenger and am already giving away your classes as gifts to mothers and daughters and girlfriends who need their souls restored. We have important work to do. I’d like to learn first hand and in person. Thank you melody and team for the chance to win

  403. Melissa Bailes says

    1.Boise River
    2.Maple Pecan Chicken Salad (which sounds divine!)
    3. Brave Girls Camp would be a life affirming time for me to learn to remember who I was before I became a wife, mom, unemployed, caregiver to my mom for 10 years and soon to be empty nester. Everything Melody says and does speaks volumes to me and I thank the heavens that she was brave enough to make her dreams come true. May I learn that too.

  404. Holly Ceelen says

    1) You will be o.k. 2) Brave Girls camp is located in Star, Idaho. 3) Brave Girls and all it stands for is really my creed for living. Soul Restoration 1 and 2 helped me move my life forward and I use the lessons I learned through the process daily. The Mothers and Daughters class truly helped my daughter through a tough time. I would love to meet ( and create with ) the women that have had such an impact on my life. It would be difficult for me to afford tuition at this point in my life, so winning a place would be a dream come true. Thank you for all you have done for me and so many women in the world! Thank you for your daily bird and butterfly messages to me and my girls. :)

  405. Gail says

    1. Answer-You will be okay ( with a little heart ). 2. Peanut butter Cheesecake. 3. I actually thought what a wonderful place to teach and work to help enrich other women. I then thought , wait…maybe you need to first play and fill your creative spaces with new knowledge and light. We all need a time to go away and treat ourselves to something wonderful, maybe it is time for me to do just that! I care for others, but who cares for me? I do, so I would love to come. Thank you for the chance. Good Luck to everyone!

  406. bonnyG says

    1. You will be ok
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I would like to come to camp for many reasons: fellowship, arts, nature, fun, love, only a day trip away, learning, sharing, time away from the norm, change of pace, an experience not so easliy afforded. There are more reasons, these are just a few.

  407. Erin S. says

    1. You will be okay
    2. The Brave Girl bus takes you to the ranch
    3. Brave Girl Camp looks like the most amazing place in this world! As a wife, mom and fitness instructor I feel like I give a lot if not all of myself to others, and it would be truly amazing to have this experience for MYSELF! I would love nothing more than to be surrounded by the beauty of ranch and an entire group of Brave Girls!

  408. says

    1. You will be okay.
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I feel that my life has become so toxic. Your barn looks like a place for shattered souls – I want to cleanse my spirit and detox. I can’t afford your camp at the moment. I took both your soul restoration courses and they have helped me see a different perspective – i still have a long way to go…

  409. lisa says

    wow- Im crying watching all of this………….what a dream come true to get to one of these camps……….as a single momma from the day #1 of bringing my daughter home, I have never once been away from her. We have only had one vacation ever. To be away and be amoung other grown up s….. wow …………this would be mind blowing. I do not really remeber who I am at all any more really xxoo

  410. says

    1-You will be OK

    Star, ID
    3. I had the honor of being at the very first Brave Girl Camp in Oct of 2009. It was so wonderful to be with loving, accepting Brave Sisters. Brave Girl Camp has evolved in so many wonderful ways that I would love to be a part of Camp again to spread my wings and fly – soar to the outreaches that life and God has for me to seek. I can't wait to return. <3
    Thank you to all the Brave staff for making Brave Girl Camp happen. You will always have a special place in my heart and soul. <3
    ~purrs … Delyne

  412. Shana says

    1. You will be OK
    2. The Brave Bus takes campers to the ranch
    3. Words can’t even explain how much I need this. I get teary-eyed every morning when I read your emails. I’ve been through so much over the last few years – divorce, health issues, friends disappearing from my life, etc. – and have completely lost myself. I know that this camp is exactly what I need to help me start living and enjoying life again, rather than just suffering through it.

  413. L Friedrichs says

    Hello and how very exciting!

    1. You will be ok
    2. Brave River Ranch. But, will that be the name of the new location also? :)
    3. I have never been to a retreat/camp for women and it sounds like the most fantastic way to recharge my spirit. The opportunity to learn from Melody, the staff and all the other women would be a huge blessing. It is time, my time, to experience this wonderful opportunity.

    1… YOU will be okay 😉 2…Our goal is to make sure you have the TIME of YOUR LIFE!!! 3… Hmmmm … Sooooo many reasons come to mind why I want to come to camp… I for 1 am a big kid, who refuses to grow “old,” – I more and more see the need to renew and refresh my soul, and I recognize this camp as a place where angels tend the gardening of souls… I la la la loooove ART!!! Connections and communicating has been a challenge 4 me- I want to push through that…. I also want to fill myself up with the love that I deserve and need so that I can overflow that love into the world… VACATION!!! – My whole life I have pushed and strived to better myself… I never want this process to stop… also, you seem like such beautiful and loving souls… it lifts my spirit being in the presence of such company <3

  415. Tanya horn says

    That was amazing!!
    1) You will be okay
    2) Brave River Ranch
    3) I would love to come to camp because I was laid off from my job two weeks ago, I really thought I had everything in life planned out but I now realize I didn’t. I am an artist by nature, I have a graphic design degree, but for the past seven years I’ve been in analytical fields including accounting. I would love the opportunity to spend some time with other women and to spend time being creative. I have never been to Idaho, I love being in nature, so this would be a perfect opportunity for me to grow and plan my future… especially since I turn 40 in December, what a great birthday present!! Thank you for this opportunity.

  416. says

    1. You will be OK
    2. Boise River, and no you don’t need to be an artist and yes there are payment plans
    3. I would love the chance to be at Brave Girls Camp – because I am a brave girl a little stuck in a scared girl right now. I have a desire to create and could use an outlet to learn and tap into my creative side.

  417. says

    Hi and WOW!!!! I love that!
    1. You will be okay.
    2. With the Brave Bus.
    3. It is a desire deep down in my heart to meet Melody in real and to be able to fly to the United States to have this life changing moments wit all of you!
    Thank you so much for being here, Melody!

    1. You will be OK.
    2. The bus is called the Brave Girl Bus and the camp is along the Boise River.
    3. When I recently discovered “Little Bird” emails I was so excited! I signed up to receive them that moment. Then I discovered the Brave Girl’s Camp and I was in awe! Immediately I was drawn in and read every comment, watched videos and poured over the pictures. I felt like I was not alone and there was someone who saw into my heart and there was an actual place to create, dream, love, journal, discover, design, be valued, be encouraged and a place to grow into who I am created to be. I desire to go to camp deeply. Currently the financial commitment to attend is a challenge. Yet, I have begun to save a few dollars and will continue to do so until I can attend. It is a dream I am willing to wait for. To answer the question of why I want to attend fully would take many words and I honestly am not sure I could articulate adequately how deeply I want to attend. This opportunity makes my heart sing! What a wonderful gift you are giving. I would dance for joy if I was chosen. Whoever is blessed with this opportunity will be given a gift that will make an everlasting imprint on their lives. Thank you for dreaming and making other’s dreams come true!

    3 after taking a couple of the Brave Girl online classes, I have been touched deeply and changed forever. The classes have penetrated my soul. I have dreamed of going to camp with my deepest heart. I long to somewhere where I can feel the power of soul transformation 24 hours a day. One way or another I will make it to camp someday. Thanks for being such a positive influence in my life!

  420. Kelly DeLine says

    1. You will be okay!

    I am a little afraid of “putting myself out there”, but your messages, beautiful art, and soulful group touch and inspire me deeply. Although I would not consider myself artistic, I find myself feeling more creative and positive after spending time on your site. I would so appreciate the opportunity to be in such a supportive and loving space. Just as so many have expressed, I have found myself to be in a difficult mindset lately. I feel so completely burnt out and exhausted by everything around me………. Looking for a new job, my son’s drug and alcohol addiction, my living situation, so many friends needing financial help, abandoned/abused animals, etc. I need some new “Light and Hope” in my life. I would love to experience/share Brave Girl Camp. I need to make a change!!!! Namaste

  422. McKenzie says

    1) You will be OK
    2) Brave Girl Camp along the Boise River in Star, Idaho
    3) To find the courage to get in touch with “me” again

  423. Shannon Shreeve says

    1. You will be ok
    2. The ranch is called “Brave River Ranch”
    3. Just about two years ago I discovered the “Little Bird” emails and subscribed. Was actually in a very difficult time in my life….facing the demons of the past, newly on my own after leaving my abusive husband (my 17 year old & I ran and hid for several months), then unexpectedly dealing with the death of my husband & how that affected life for me & my son, along with several other issues. On a particularly difficult week….when I had lost hope….when I didn’t see anything positive in my future…I opened the “Little Bird” email and was stunned, shocked, amazed…but most importantly given the words I needed to get through that day and most importantly to grab some hope for my future. It was a pivotal moment in my life….a day I will NEVER forget….as that note and many more since that day have specifically given me words of encouragement that I needed on those days. Too many times I’ve felt that the “Little Bird” and “God” had spoken…and the messages were divinely sent to push me through difficult emotions, situations and more. I’m still learning to be a “Brave Girl” and would love the opportunity to personally sit and glean and heal some more. Just recently diagnosed with breast cancer – had the first surgery, about half way through my radiation and then will be ready for reconstruction surgery. Many times in recent weeks I’ve wanted to give up – wanted to wallow in grief and sorrow of yet another hardship….but again the “Little Bird” has been there to encourage me and give me hope for a happy future I still desire. Just last evenings “little Bird” note about loving regardless of what is received in return helped me push through some negative thinking and emotions that were getting in the way of friendships. Anyway, regardless of whether I win the opportunity to come to camp….you ladies and the “Little Bird” have changed my life and I love and appreciate you so much!!!!!

  424. Sue says

    1. “You will be okay” is the message on the rock
    2. The Brave River Ranch in Star Idaho (on the lovely Boise River)
    3. Put simply, I’m a caregiver and have tuned life upside down, sideways and then some to make that role work, sometimes leaving self-care to the side. The one constant is that I read your posts each day and am so encouraged, send them to other friends to share the love, and just adore what you do. Camp would be such a blessed gift.
    Thank you for ALL you do. You are such a treasure in the world. xox

  425. Colleen Smith says

    1. you will be ok
    2. The Boise River
    3. I just want to be a positive person again. All the time. I want to be able to handle the curves life throws with grace and poise instead of being angry and spiteful. Regardless of whether I win this or not, I will be at a Brave Girl Camp…hopefully with my daughters or sisters someday soon! Thanks Melody and Kathy for the beautiful and simple, loving messages you impart. They make a difference (I see it in the pregnant teens at my school who I suggest read your messages). Good luck to all!

  426. Michelle Lekar says

    1. You will be OK
    2. The Brave Girl ‘school’ bus – decorated Brave Girl style :)
    3. There is a sense of calm the minute you arrive. I’ve never experienced such a sincere group of people. You will feel immediately accepted, and never judged. It’s a feeling you’ll crave…which is why I’d love to go back!

  427. says

    1. You will be OK (four words that mean so much)
    2. Brave River Ranch via the Brave Bus – wahoo!
    3. Like the song in the video “I’m ready for a change”. At 47 I find myself in a place I never thought I would be at this age and the uncertainty it brings is a battle each day and those four words are exactly what I needed, because really that is truth and I just need to believe it.
    I have found the BGC to be such a source of inspiration and I would like to take it even deeper. Whenever I read about or watch videos about the Brave Girls Camp, there is such a longing in my heart to be there. I know it will be a life changer and I am ready. I hope with all my heart that I will able to attend.
    Thank you for offering such a wonderful gift of love and it will be such a blessing to one lucky gal.

  428. Melissa Renfrey says

    What an awesome giveaway! You ladies are amazing!
    1) You will be OK <3
    2) Campers ride the Brave Bus to the Ranch each day!
    3) I am currently taking part in the Online Soul Restoration workshop and just loving it! It is such an amazing experience and I'm learning and growing each week. It is incredible how much love and support there is in the group. I would LOVE to attend Brave Girl Camp in person as I can only imagine how much fun it would be! Due to $ restraints it isn't possible right now, so winning a place at the camp would be a dream!! Keeping my fingers crossed x

    Good luck everyone! *hugs*

    2. Brave girls Camp is located in Star, ID
    3. I want to go to Brave Girls Camp to have the opportunity to have a real soul restoration. I am enjoying the online class, but as a wife and mom of three very busy children, it is hard to really, “retreat” in my home and I think I could find the peace and solitude I need at Brave Girls Camp.

  430. Tracy says

    1. You will be Okay
    2. Brave River Ranch in Star, Idaho
    3. I am a Brave Girl and would LOVE the opportunity to participate in this camp. For years I have been watching the videos, wanting to go, but then creating excuses for why I shouldn’t go or can’t go… family, work, money, I am not creative enough, what could I offer this wonderful group of women, how can I justify that right now,.. oh and the list goes on. What an awesome opportunity to remove any barriers to invest in ME, because deep down, I know I am worth it.

    2. Kallie promised herself to take care of her body…to get to her right weight and stay there both for herself and her family and loved one.
    3. Through a recent dark journey I came out with a tag line of “Honor, Celebrate and Remember”. Brave Girls Camp would be my way to honor my womanhood with other like-minded women. To celebrate my life, my light and what I can offer the world. Lastly, to remember my blessings and share them deeply with others. Thank you for the opportunity to attend and experience your light and community.

  432. Michelle Arnold-Yeager says

    You Will be OK.
    Both the ranch and the hotel are located on the Boise River.
    Why do I want to come to camp? I know I NEED camp. I need the ‘get away-ness’ of it in order to really find myself and help myself be the best self I can be, more completely. I am wife of a disabled vet, fighting for our entire marriage (25) years to help him get the benefits he has been denied, while battling 3 different incurable illnesses (but God…its a great story), lost a business, lost reputation in community following a moon person’s vendetta – the sad list goes on and on – BUT I have not and will not let those “Job” things get me or keep me down – I know God has great things for me on earth and I have been learning freedom from emotional bondage through liturgical dance at my church over the last 3 years. I yearn to go deeper into His Will for my life but I cannot get where I need to be with baggage hanging off me in the form of labels about myself that I have allowed to remain.. If it’s not me, that’s totally OK because I know it will be for someone the most deserving – thank you all for the SR class so far (3 weeks in) – you all are the Brave Ones! — Chelle.

  433. Diona says

    1. You will be ok
    2. I picked the one about Kallie as it strikes a cord with me deeply right now and the answer is :” I promise to take care of my body…to get to my right weight and stay there both for myself and for my family and loved ones. I promise to be true to the musician inside of me and to take the steps needed to develop my talents even further. I promise to use those talents to bless others. I promise to be more forward, open and honest with myself and others about what I really want. I promise to start breaking down the walls around my heart that prevent me from making deep and lasting friendships.”
    3.YES! Camp sounds amazing and like a place to reconnect to myself… the one person in my life I seem to have lost the most. I am always putting others first, and forget that by not caring for “me” or “mom” or however you want to put it… I am failing all of the “others” out there.

    To whoever wins this amazing gift – congrats and thank you as always to the amazing group who keep all of this alive!

  434. Teresa Bowling says

    You will be okay

    Widowed at age 56, I am still trying to figure out who I am as a single person. This is difficult since I married at 18 and never lived alone. Camp is a goal of traveling farther than I have ever been.

    Thank you! :-)

    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. After taking the Soul Restoration I found that I wanted a divorce and have fallen apart since. Coming back to my books and truth teller is helping me become stronger but I have settled rather then remaining strong. Losing everything I worked so hard for over the last 10 years (except my son) is too much for me to handle. I am the one that is always strong and I am the one everyone turns to for guidance and help so falling apart for the past month has made me feel weak. I know I am strong and things will get better with time but some days it just isn’t enough to pull me out of bed. I am also a full time student and a stay at home Mom with a son that is ADD/ADHD and lately because he can sense I am not ok he is not ok. His behavior is crazy and normally that is not the case. Honestly I need a place to run for only a little while and get my life back together and become the strong person I have been to get me through this difficult time in my life. I know this time will pass and life will be better but sometimes overload occurs and you become lost on the way to healing. I know there are so many of us out there that learned so much from the courses and I so badly would love to attend the camp but for now I can only dream that it would be a possibility. I am so blessed to have found the Brave Girls Club through my volunteer time with Bountiful Baskets. Which has meant the world to me. Thanks for the opp and thanks for being who you are and reaching out to us in need it reminds us we aren’t alone and that this is only a milestone along the way.

    Best of luck to all,
    Tina

    3. I would love to attend a Brave Girls Camp because I need to find myself again. At some point in the last 20 years of my life I have gotten lost. Last year my husband passed away from a 10 battle with a Ceptic infection. He passed away two months before two of our girls were to graduate high school and get ready to go off to college. Once they left home we only had one child left at home and this year he is a high school senior. I am still recovering from the loss of my husband and facing an empty house in less than a year. I am ready now to begin the journey of finding who I am beyond a wife and mother. It’s time for me, and yes, I will be okay!

  439. Erica Warmoth says

    1. You will be OK.
    2. I couldn’t choose just One of Kallie’s promises to herself because these two resonated with me to the core. It’s as if she were writing this to me; I promise to be more forward, open and honest with myself and others about what I really want. I promise to start breaking down the walls around my heart that prevent me from making deep and lasting friendships.
    3. I’ve been stuck for years. Stuck hiding in a little box I’ve been put in. Stuck because I had a hand in putting myself there. Letting others make decisions for me. The Soul Restoration class has shown me I’m still in there but now I’m yearning to get out. I have not let myself feel that yearning for many years. It hurt too much. The yearning is back. It still hurts, but more like the pains you feel while something heals. An opportunity to go to Brave Girl camp would go miles toward helping me throw open the lid to that box. It’s an opportunity I would not financially be able to swing on my own. It would be a dream come true to attend and gain tools that would allow me to spread help the word about Brave Girl Camp and Soul Restoration. There are so many women (and men) that need these courses! What an honor it would be (again with the wild dreams) to one day be a facilitator!

    On behalf on whoever wins, A huge THANK YOU!!! for walking the path you have and sharing with the world.

    3. I’d like to go to Brave Girls Camp to be surrounded by what seems to be the most unconditional love this side of heaven. I’d love to experience that community of love and support, and to bond with other women through the experience. And then bring what I learn home to enrich the lives of my family and friends.

    1) you will be ok
    2) You do NOT have to be an artist to attend BGC.
    3) Why would I like to come to BGC?
    *I could tell you all about how Melody and how her daily messages helped me through the
    last year of my mom’s life as I had been her primary caretaker 24/7 for years and was totally
    lost and drained.
    *And I could tell you how BG online classes helped me to find myself, forgiveness, self
    acceptance, self love and a purpose that centers around my desires.
    * I could tell you how I have introduced the BG thinking to my Senior Girl Scouts and
    community schools I volunteer in and especially the troubled girls I work with.
    *And I could tell you how I have yet to find a way to financially afford this awesome camp.
    *But most importantly, I WANT to tell you how much I want and need to HUG each and every
    one of the BG girls (and dudes) at the ranch. I would love to personally thank you all for
    being the amazing giving and caring people you are.
    * I would be so excited to be picked to attend this camp yet, no matter what, I will continue to
    be appreciative of all you have given me so far!
    Hugs.

    1. You will be okay
    2. You DO NOT have to be an artist to attend.
    3. I have felt an on and off sense of “stuck-ness” in my life and with my art. I have spent a lot of the last year isolating, mostly because I haven’t met people who I really connect with. (SoCal can be very superficial.) I’d love the opportunity to grow spiritually, artistically, and socially with other like-minded women. There are many truths that I know, but struggle to hold onto in difficult times. I would love to make them a more permanent part of my daily life.

  445. Ally says

    1. The message on the rock is “you will be ok”.

    2. Kallie promised that she would start breaking down the walls around her heart that prevent her from making deep and lasting friendships.

    3. I need to come to Brave Girl Camp for so many reasons. Let me count the ways.

    I recently left a state and friends that I loved with all of my heart to move back home to help care for my aging parents. (whom I also love with all of my heart :-) But between work and family obligations, I’ve little time left for creating and connecting with like-minded souls and I feel like I’m losing myself a little more every day. I feel that Brave Girl Camp will help me to remember that if I don’t take care of myself and feed my soul, I won’t be able to take very good care of others.

    I’ve wanted to attend an art retreat for years now, but work and financial constraints have always prevented me from doing so. When I heard about Brave Girl Camp, I knew that this is the retreat for me…Because, after all, it’s so much more than an art retreat! It’s a sanctuary for the healing of one’s heart and soul and an opportunity to not only heal one’s self, but to reach out to others who are experiencing similar life challenges and let them know that they are not alone on this journey. And that act of connecting to others, in and of itself, is healing and life affirming.

    So in closing, of course, I’m hoping to be the recipient of this amazing and generous give-away, but if not, just the act of writing this short essay (and reading the others) has made me realize that I need to make it happen…somehow, some way, this is the year that I will make it happen! So thank you for this opportunity and this gift!

    Peace, Passion and Purpose,
    Ally

  446. Brandi Tsuchimoto says

    1. You will be okay
    2. Transportation is on a bus
    3. I have taken several of the online classes. I have learned so much about myself and I would love to come to camp to further learn about my soul, my priorities and how to take care of myself. I would love to explore my creative side and let the art feed my soul.

  447. says

    1. The rock says: “You will be OK” (and you will!)
    2. Every morning the “Brave Bus” picks us up from the Hilton hotel and takes us to the Brave River Ranch.
    3. Oh my Goodness, Why do I NEED to come to Brave Girls Camp? In a nutshell – To be able to help others heal while healing myself …happy sigh! And because there is such a special energy that envelops the entire camp that I have not found anywhere else. I met God here and knew my soul for the first time…. and I will be there again

  448. Cheryl Pantalone says

    1. You will be ok. :)
    2. The camp is held in Star, Idaho
    3. I would love to come to camp for two main reasons:

    1. To grow and heal and learn through art so I may help my students (alternative school students in grades k-12) do the same.
    AND
    2. To return to Idaho to experience closure. I left Idaho Falls when I was fourteen and drove alone cross country in a blue Toyota painted with pink hearts. Many of my experiences in Idaho were filled with pain and judgment. I was delighted to find Brave Girls Club and was SHOCKED to find out where it was located. And I was shocked further when I experienced their outpouring of generosity for my students this summer. I love when things come full circle and would love to be able to replace my old memories of Idaho with new, love filled ones.

  449. says

    1.You will be OK.
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. The Brave Girls Club caught my attention a year or so ago and I have fallen in love with everything Melody & company has promoted ~~~ primarily their love and heart for women. I appreciate their vision in making strong women who believe in themselves living to give through arts, inspiration and love of life! It draws me in desiring to do the same! My heart has always been to inspire women and young girls around me to have vision and hope and belief in themselves with Love and Life! I aspire to do the same on my Facebook page, Denise’s Window Box. This would be such an opportunity for me to enlarge my vision and dreams. Causing my heart to expand and grow in ways that I desire and yearn for while bringing healing to my own soul. I would share this opportunity as much as I could, through the truths and wisdom, freedom and love learned through the camp with all women around me. I would make the most of this opportunity and very special time not only for myself but with women of all ages around me as well. Thank You for this opportunity and your vision for women!!! You are loved & appreciated.

    1. You will be OK….

    2.,No, you don’t need to be an artist, but you will leave an artist, because you will learn you are creatng yourself. And the art pieces you create are just tokens of who your are becoming.

    3. I need to revisit BGC, because the first time I did not invest enough of myself in the process. I was to distracted by outside elememts to fully embrace the experience.

  451. Julie Williamson says

    1. you will be okay
    2. The camp is held in Star, Idaho
    3. This year is the year of my divorce and I have going to a BG camp on my bucket list. Money is tight but so far I have £6 towards the camp. It would be brilliant to win a place as flights from the UK effectively double the price. I have been a Brave Girl for at least three years, dealing with many hard and difficult things in that time. I would love to be able to hug Melody and Kathy and say thank you for letting me found my place in the world. Many thanks

  452. Teri says

    1. You will be ok 2. Star, Idaho 3. I attended BGC in June 2013 and in the two months since I attended the camp, it has literally changed my life. For the first time in years I am painting,singing,drawing and listening deeply to how I feel. I consciously stop myself from listening to what other people think I should feel/think/act. The camp has helped me to empower myself in ways that I didn’t realize. I’m my voice every day. I want to attend camp again because I don’t want to lose the precious lessons that are taught there. I still have questions, doubts, fears and failures. I am a work in progress and sometimes I feel like a baby bird learning to fly using these new tools. I want to continue learning to use the tools available and camp is a full immersion of those lessons. I am FIERCELY protecting my house.

    3-The reason I would LOVE to attend Brave Girl Camp, wow there are so many. My Soul is longing for this connection to beautiful kindred souls, to my inner artist, to my path of unfolding into my truth. I know that an experience like this isn’t just nice or a good time it is LIFE CHANGING on layers and levels I will experience for years to come after i am there.

    1. You will be OK
    2. The Brave Girl Bus
    3. I want to come to camp to have my soul restored. One week before my 50th birthday my son was killed in a car accident. I will be turning 60 this next year and am facing the end of my 35 year marriage. I need soul restoration and can’t think of any place better to connect with other sisters going though difficult times and leaving stronger and better than ever after a stay at Brave Girls Camp! There is strength when we share our stories. We are worth it!

    1.) You will be okay!
    2.) Brave Girl Camp is held in what town? Star, ID
    3.) After reading all the entries above it makes my heart wish for one of them to win the drawing! YOu REALLY HAVE YOUR WORK cut out for you to choose!! I know that you will choose the person that needs to REALLY be there and I am certain that I will make it to Brave Girl Camp at some point. I trust that my inner guide will get me there because Brave Girl Camp would not of come to me if I was not meant to be there. For years I have had a dream of starting a camp similar to Brave Girl Camp since I became a recovering eating disorder patient and severe depression survivor. Brave Girl Camp reminds me of when I was in the hospital getting treatment. It reminds of what HEAVEN will be like….. SO please keep doing what you are doing .. BEING BRAVE… because even thought I can not be there YET the emails that you send keep me going on the path that God has sent out for me. I wish the winner love and strength because we are all Brave Girls in the END!!!! Thank you all at Brave Girls Camp for working hard and living your purpose because your purpose is changing peoples lives!!

    LIVE WITH LOVE,
    Kasey Maher

    1. You will be OK.
    2. You do not have to be an artist to go (although you will be when you leave! :))
    3. I would like to go again because I was so closed when I went last year, it was that time at the ranch that opened me and got me really working on myself, I have wondered all this time, what would I leave with if I was really open? I want to see. I feel like it would be a full circle and I need that. I love you guys, all of you. You have been there on this journey with me, everyday. Thank you.

    1. You will be ok

    3.I have followed the daily emails and looked so many times at the classes.I feel like life crowds out my time to create. My kids are leaving for college and grad school in stages and I am trying to find who I am now. I would love to come to a camp and do something for myself.

  463. says

    1) “you will be okay”.
    2) The Brave River Ranch!
    3) I want to come because the little video made me cry tears of recognition. I am part of your tribe, and each day that I get an email from “the brave girls”, it absolutely is what I need to read in that moment. This is the year for me to give hugs and thanks to the ones I love. That includes you – – lovely, inspirational, very brave girls. xox

    1. The Rock says: “You will be OK”
    2. Question 1: “What’s the name of the Ranch where camp is held?” Answer: The Brave River Ranch
    3. “Why do you want to come to camp?” It seems God had called me to be a “care giver” in my life. I took care of my very sick mom for years before she passed away in August 2011. After her passing was when I started doing art. I had never been artsy before in my life. I now have a part time art business, do art shows and have an online store. Art does heal. It helped me mourn the most important woman in my life. Fast forward – it’s now two years after her death it seems I am in the “care giver” mode again to my 70 year old father. He has been sick and hospitalized every month since April with a mysterious illness that gives him very high fever and chills along with other symptoms. He had back surgery in April, had a titanium implant put in his low back and since has not been the same. They cannot figure out what is wrong with him. He has no infection in his body. I know this is way tougher on the patient but I find myself really needing a break. I have heard about the life changing experience firsthand of Brave Girls Camp from one of the amazing women who attended. I have been following your blog and receiving emails for about 2 yrs now and I love everything you stand for and do. I am a BRAVE GIRL because of you guys! And, I AM WORTH IT! I thank you for this once in a lifetime chance to win! Sincerely, Michelle Saxon

    2. A menu item: Kathy’s Kicked-Up Chicken Salad on Wheat Nut Bread….boy does this sound amazing!
    3. I would like the chance to attend Brave Girl Camp because I am in serious need of some ME time. Having recently lost my mother and my husband having a terrible accident, my life has been pretty full of a lot of sadness. I am ready to step out of that and find something positive, fulfilling and valuable. Thanks for considering and thank you for the opportunity!

    Why do you want to come to Camp!

    I am on a journey that has barely begun. This summer has left me with a lot of time on my hands and I truly had a lot of time to think about what is going on in my life. I had surgery on June 24 and have been in constant pain since – recovery is not going well and being in Idaho at camp would be something that would not only lift my spirits but also give me something to dream about.

    I barely skimmed the surface of what was going on in my life. It took me two days to figure out what was going on at camp and by then we were half-way through… I suppose some are slower realizing than others. I honestly didn’t even know who Melody was – I just knew I needed to be at Brave Girl Camp.

    I teach high school art and my inspiration was very low after last year which had brought me many challenges. But after BGC I was truly very inspired and introspective. This year has started on a very good note and now a small setback in my recovery from surgery. I love the Brave Girls (and Brave Guys that help out around every corner). I had no idea what I was in for the first time and I spent much of my time somewhat confused as to what I was doing. It is an extremely deep and thorough experience – I barely skimmed the surface of my inner wounded soul.

    I so very much want to return and am unable to go back to my second job at this time (due to the problematic recovery) to afford the payments. I truly hope that because I’ve attended camp once, it doesn’t lessen my chances of maybe winning this spectacular offer.

    I am in emotional and physical pain and really could use your Brave Girl Hugs… so much I want to excise more of that wounds that have been plaguing me and I want to be in Idaho again to work through more of these issues. I <3 you all so very much and feel strongly about returning to BGC because it was one of the very best experiences in my life for my emotional recovery.

    Thank you for posting this opportunity ladies… I pray that I am blessed with the winning entry.

    Much love sent your way…
    Cheryl

    2. Star ID
    3. I would love to have the chance to come to this camp. I am currently trying to re-integrate art in to my life and be inspired by other artists and beings. And because the song speaks to me, I am ready for a CHANGE!

    Thank you!
    Catherine

  468. Heather says

    1. you will be ok <3
    2. transportation on the Brave Bus, looks like an old school bus :)
    3. This past year has been the hardest of my life, with my father's passing, and now my mother has cancer again, for the fourth time, so this coming year is shaping up to be even harder. The daily truth emails from Brave Girls Club have helped me so much this year, and I think it would be amazing to have some time to get away with some brave girls and recover a sense of peace and balance that I feel like I've lost.

  469. Lynn P says

    1. You will be o.k.
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I would love to come to the camp to meet other like-minded women looking for a soul opening experience. From the web site, it looks like a life-altering experience :)

  470. Kelly says

    1. You will be o.k
    2. The Brave Bus 😉
    3. There are so many reasons that I want to come to Brave Girls Camp!! The main reason is to be with other women who “get it” and understand without judgement. I feel that this camp would be so beneficial to my well being and I want to come so badly. I have made my husband watch the videos about the camp and he wants me to do it, so at some point we will make it happen. It sounds crazy, but I cry every time I watch the videos. I guess that for one time in my life I want to do something by myself that is “just for me” and give me a place to share and heal. Hopefully, I would be able to help others by sharing as well. That would be a wonderful experience. To be able to help others heal while healing yourself. Brave Girls Camp looks like a magical and safe place to be!

  471. says

    YAY!!! So exciting!
    1. {You will be OK.} (Beautiful & the perfect message for me today and always, thanks!)
    2. The name of the ranch where the camp is held is Brave River Ranch.
    3. I would like to come to camp to build my inner confidence and self-acceptance. Somehow between becoming a mom and pursuing my dreams of starting my own creative business, I feel I have lost myself and am having to learn how to take care of my again. I feel that surrounding myself with inspiring and amazing woman could help to remind my heart that I am ok just the way I am and that I am capable of anything. I just have to trust myself and really, truly accept myself the way I am right now. I want to conquer my fears of doubting myself and remember to hold my head up high and walk proudly in the direction of my intuition. Life can be full, busy and sometimes crazy but we are all more alike than different and I think it’s time that I surround myself with people that lift me up and inspire my heart and soul. I am sending each of you love and blessings today! Have a beautiful day. xoxo

    3. After dealing with a serious depression for the last several years we finally have my meds just about right. It’s time to find my joy again! I know creating with other Brave Girls could help me. I’d also like to connect with other women… since I’ve been withdrawn so long I have no close friends. I want to be a good friend again.

  473. says

    1. You will be OK
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. It has been a dream of mine to attend this camp! And my reason: to get back into my own soul. I’ve lost her a bit along the way, but I know she’s in there.

  474. Michelle Walsh says

    1 You will be OK
    2 No, you don’t have to be an artist
    3 As a Mama of 5 daughters, ages 13-2, we are all working on being brave together. What an awesome opportunity to grow and bring it all back home for my girls, who will then ignite the spark for everyone THEY touch :)

  475. melanie says

    The message on the rock says “You will be ok”. And that is true!
    You do not have to be an artist to attend the camp. Whew!
    I “accidentally” came across a reference to Brave Girls in a food blog I was reading. It was during one of the most difficult times of my life and a time when I felt like a huge failure. I credit Brave Girls (and acupuncture) for getting me back on track. Going to camp would be the most awesome, amazing and inspiring experience I could have.

    1. You will be OK!
    2. The Boise River (I love rivers – so I chose that question, lol)
    3. The ranch and and the connectedness that is created there are something I would love to witness firsthand. It just calls out to me each time I read about it, and I am hoping to brave enough to live intentionally. I think camp can be my setting free place :))

  479. says

    1. You will be OK. (and you truly will)
    2. Star, ID (could that be more perfect??)
    3. I can think of no better place to re-fuel, restore, review, re-map, reconcile, re-vamp, recollect and realign my Brave Girl Spirit than by attending camp with other women on the path to reclaiming their authentic selves. Thank you Kathy and Melody for offering this heavenly opportunity for one lovely brave girl to connect with sisters from all over the world.

  480. Julie Brooks says

    Hi friends,
    1. You will be ok.
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I would LOVE to attend camp. Why? Because it is a place I’ve wanted to go to ever since I learned about it. I am bravely walking a new path after my husband died last summer. I am bravely finding myself again, and I would love being in Idaho meeting all the other brave girls! What a great gift you are offering.

  481. Rachel says

    1. You will be ok.
    2. Boise river
    3. I am just a regular person doing what we all do. I am a mom. I have a full time career. I want my house to look like Pinterest. It is exhausting to just exist in this society. For example, on Thursday I received 300 emails & had 15 people iming me while I was on a conference calls all day. I need a break from the chaos and my cell phone.

  482. Heidi Phillips says

    1. “You will be Okay”
    2. One of the promises Kallie made to herself at brave girls camp. She promised to be more forward, open and honest with herself and others about what she really wants.
    3. As I read Kallies promises this one resonated with me the most. After raising 9 children for the past 27 years and putting everyones needs first I am finding it difficult to figure out how to put myself first. You would think that would be easy! I have always been an artist/crafter but that has had to be put on the back burner for all these years. I think brave girls camp would help me to connect with other women as well as learn how to be true to myself through my love of art.
    Thank you for all you do to encourage us I have passed these truths on to other women in crisis that I have come across and the results have been amazing!!!

  483. Dorothy F says

    1. You will be Okay!
    2. Boise River
    3. Have followed Brave Girls since the beginning, taken all the classes and my dream is to attend a camp, if I ever have the money. Some day.

  484. De Edra Farley says

    1. You will be okay
    2. Star, Idaho
    3. I’d love to attend camp because I have been struggling to find myself again after a divorce. I found the Brave Girls Club on Pinterest and it peaked my interest. From there, I took part in creating a “Soul Book,” which really helped me to focus on the good things in my life and what is really important. It would be a great experience to be around positive women, engaged in soul-searching activities, and find my strengths again as I go through my journey. I feel as though I am at a crossroad in my life and want the next part of my life to be filled with happiness and laughter. Thanks… :-)

  485. says

    1) You Will be OK
    2) Brave Girl Camp along the Boise River in Star, Idaho!
    3) I DREAM of going to Brave Girl Camp to fellowship with other Brave Girls, and meet the founders of the organization that is giving me Hope of fulfilling my Dreams back here in my Minnesota hometown that I moved back to so many years ago. I love being back in a small town, but I left many girlfriends and “support” behind. I want to be around other “dreaming” women, to support them, to feel support from them, to just start the rest of our lives on a whole new page, perhaps. And my “Kindred Spirit” girlfriend moved to Idaho, about 3 hours away from Star, so maybe I could combine a trip to see her! This would be beyond what I could ask my Heavenly Father to give me, but I am going to ask anyway. He might surprise me! :)

  486. Mary Ullrich says

    2. Star, ID
    3. I have had a very trying year! My mother is in her 11th year of Alzheimer’s disease and I recently moved her and my dad to live closer to me. My mom is doing as well as can be expected, but dad is really struggling with leaving his home of over 30 years, watching his wife slowly deteriorate and facing his own mortality. I have found solace in several of the Brave Girls online courses and would relish the opportunity to attend a Brave Girl Camp!

    1. You Will Be OK!!!
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I have been struggling for several years, I am the caregiver for two 81 year old parents and I help to take care of my two grandsons, 10 and 5! I find it easy to take care of others, but so difficult to take care of myself…I have an autoimmune disease that I battle daily, and there are some mornings that I feel like I cannot summon the strength to face the day, and yet I push through…What I want to find most, is peace and acceptance…I am such a perfectionis,t and I need to learn how to be accepting of myself, feel pretty again and most of all be surrounded and uplifted with love and friendship!!! This would mean the world to me! I have so wanted to attend, but finances have not allowed…I look at the pics from previous camps and my heart yearns for the smiles I see on the faces of your Brave GIrls…Thank you for this chance of a lifetime!!!

  488. says

    1) You will be ok.
    2) Brave River Ranch
    3) I have always dreamed of going to Brave Girls Camp because it seems to be a place where I can start over. I’ve lost my mom this year and my last child will be graduating from high school this year. Brave Girls Camp would seem like the perfect place to start the next chapter in my own life. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win this!

  489. Elizabeth says

    1. You will be OK
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. I want to travel on the Brave Bus to the Brave River Ranch, but first I have to be brave enough to travel from Tassie, island state of Australia, to Idaho, home of Melody and Kathy.
    The longest and hardest part of the journey, however, will be for me to fully know that I am OK, that I am loved.

  490. Lee McGrath says

    1. you will be ok
    2. Brave River Ranch
    3. to be chosen as the winner would be an epic adventure to say the least!!! i like to pour myself into art when or where ever possible. I am a mum of two daughters and I live in Melbourne Australia. To travel to your ranch for my first overseas trip would stay in my heart for ever!!! Congratulations to the winner if it is not me xoxo If it is me… well then woo hoo!!! see you soon!!! xoxo

  491. Trisha says

    1) You will be ok. 2) Brave River. 3) I have dreamed of going to Brave Girls Camp ever since it first started, but I could never manage it for one reason or another. After SR1 and SR2, I think I am ready to face real people with my real self. I am also caregiver for my mother, and this would be a much-needed time of refreshing for me. And a dream come true. I so appreciate the chance to win a spot at Brave Girl Camp!

  492. Nikki Kamil says

    1. “you will be ok”
    2. It is held at Brave River Ranch along the Boise River in Star, Idaho
    3. After a difficult few years, the best answer to this question for me is found in the lyrics of the song on the video posted – “I wish for peace, I wish for change …. I wish my time were better spent, I wish my life made better sense, cause I’m ready for a change. Today can be the day. I forgive myself for my mistakes …. I’m ready for a change.” (After watching the video only once, these lyrics kept playing in my mind. Very powerful :)

    1) “You will be OK”
    2) The Brave Bus takes campers from the Hilton Inn to the Brave River Ranch.
    3) “I wish for me”… because “I hope for me”…because “I am ready for me”…maybe this is my chance…a chance for me? But, so many other girls wanting to be Brave ….read the others and almost feel unworthy to reply…and then remembered I am worth it!
