“Why curse the darkness when you can light a candle?” My guest for today’s episode is the founder and Executive Director of the American Heritage Girls, Patti Garibay. American Heritage Girls (AHG) is the national character development program for girls ages 5-18 whose mission is to “build women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country”. What an honor and joy it is for me to know this incredibly kind and compassionate leader whose heart beats so strongly for the next generation of girls.   During her time as a stay at home mom, Patti served as a Girl Scout volunteer for over twelve years as both a recruiter and troop leader. She was inspired by a few changes made to the Girl Scouts, as well as her father’s encouraging attitude, and she founded the faith-based, inter-denominational alternative to the Girl Scouts, the American Heritage Girls, in 1995.   Check out today's episode, "A Light In The Dark", and hear how Patti stepped out in faith and answered God’s call to give girls the opportunity and motivation to become all God created them to be.
