READ ALL ABOUT IT
Our founder, Christina DiMari, wrote an innovative and interactive curriculum that mentors girls how to connect with God, experience freedom, discover their identity, pursue their God-given dreams & purpose and explore creative ways how their life can make a difference in their community and world in a way that points others to Life. It is a blend of spiritual formation and practical life-coaching guiding girls to take time to process each lesson and create answers that are meaningful to each one individually.
Cultivating Pearls takes girls and women on a Journey through seven programs using the acronym of P.E.A.R.L.S., allowing young women to experience deep transformation and be cultivated into a beautiful pearl by discovering the rhythm of walking with God in every area of life; spiritually, mentally, emotionally, relationally and physically.

THE MEANING OF A PEARL
When a single grain of sand enters into the living membrane of an oyster, it causes the oyster conflict and irritation. The oyster’s reaction is to continually coat it with a substance called nacre, eventually transforming the grain of sand into a beautiful pearl. The pearl symbolizes deep inner change that now shines with beauty outward to the world. The Latin word for pearl literally means "unique," attesting to the fact that no two pearls are identical. You and I are like that grain of sand when we come to God. He receives us as we are, then covers us with His grace and refines us by the truth of His Word. Through that process, He creates something of beauty in us that, each in our own unique and creative way, reflects who He is to the world around us.
AN INVITATION TO COME TO THE RIVER
The River of Life
Then the angel showed me THE RIVER of the water of life, pure as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, THE TREE OF LIFE with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The LEAVES of the tree were for the HEALING of the nations. -Revelation 22:1-2
An Invitation to Come
The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price. - Revelation 22:17
A Story to Share
Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”
PEARLS JOURNEY HELPS YOU RESPOND
We teach girls/women how to respond to this invitation and come to the river and receive what they need for wherever they are on their journey. We then equip the girls to root their life at this river like a tree and consider how everything they have experienced and learned can become the leaves of their tree that will be the healing for the nations & bring love & life to others!
TOOLS FOR LIFE!
If you teach a girl a rule, you help her solve a problem. If you teach a girl to walk with God and discover her identity you help her solve the rest of her life.
We do not teach rules. We present lessons then ask the girls questions. We then encourage, equip and empower the girls to go on a journey to discover their answers. The work we do goes deep into the inner workings of their lives. The girls create something meaningful to represent what they have discovered and how the lesson is meaningful to them. This becomes a constant visual reminder guiding them on their journey of becoming the beautiful pearl God created them to be.
There is a deep rhythm to the way we teach that change how the girls learn. Once they are done with our programs, they take that rhythm into the next stage of their life and apply the same tools to where they are going. One of the main things we hear from girls is how this program has changed their life. Not just for now, but for the rest of it. It has given them a new perspective, new tools and the knowledge of how to apply these tools to their continued growth.
