She is clothed in strength & dignity
It’s not that everything is right in her world, but more the fact that she views her world through the filter of right thinking. Strength and dignity ooze from her, because she walks in the knowledge that she is a valued human being, and decisions she makes, come from that foundational truth. We can all feel weak and unworthy at times, however that does not make those feelings true. What will help us live in that truth is choosing to pick up and put on ‘Strength and Dignity’ each and every day – on the days we feel like courageous lions, as well as the days we feel like defenseless mice. Once we are dressed in those two beautiful pieces of clothing, we can face the world, confident about our future. Come on! Be bold and dress for every occasion in ‘Strength and Dignity’
Strength & dignity in prison
One of our Thai Flourish teams, Nicole and Tik ran Flourish at a prison in Thailand with 15 girls. Their feedback truly depicts how Flourish is helping the girls gain strength and dignity in the face of prison life. Here are just some comments made about Flourish…
What would you say the girls found to be the most impacting personally?
They all commented on how they felt more worthy. They thanked us for coming and caring about them, especially to come all the way from Australia to help them. They had more insight into their relationships with others and how to change their own behaviours as well as set boundaries with other people to protect themselves. They could see hope for a future.
What was the highlight of this course for you as a FLOURISH Facilitator team?
The relationships we built with the women. Their joy and friendship towards us each time we came in. The last day celebration was very moving for us as well as the girls, and it was obvious that all of them had grown in their personal sense of self worth and confidence. They commented that they didn’t have enough underwear to wear in prison and they were so excited to receive a gift of a bra and undies each, as a farewell from Tik and I. (Great ay, Deb)!

A tip for Coordinators
As a tr ainer of trainers, the message of FLOURISH is well embedded in our hearts and wecan assume our newly trained gals have received this same message in theirs. However, this is not always the case. It’s not due to lack of passion, but simply because our TTT courses are run as an intensive and some points can easily be missed. It is good to check in with your Flourish Facilitators to see how they are going with presenting the valued messages Flourish brings.
REMEMBER, we, the Flourish Management Team are here for you so feel free to contact us anytime
