Feedback from the Romantic Revolutions:

From the teen girls:
-I loved this retreat! It was fun and full of non-stop activities. I think that young people will choose to become chaste.
-I thought it was really fun since it was explained really well.  I learned that chastity is a better way to live.
-I liked it a lot. I can actually use the information in real life
-It was awesome. I learned a little about chastity in school but I learned a lot here.
-I always love hearing real life stories so I loved the talks.
-It made me think about how I act with guys.
-I liked the modesty talk from Chris (the guy on the team).
-I thought it was great. I really like the talks. I will always remember to believe in myself.
-I thought about how much I need God in all my relationships.
-I learned God has more meaning to me than a guy can treat me.

From the moms & troop leaders:
-I have to let you know the best part of the day was our drive home (approx. 35 minutes), my daughter and I had some great conversations about chastity, God, boys, school and choices!  Here's to keeping the talking going and to continuing the "Romantic Revolution."
-Covered a range of very appropriate topics that were presented at a level that all the girls could easily understand.
-The talks from the teens were most memorable for me.
-I especially liked the male perspective on how men/boys view women.
-Excellent - right mix of talks and mixers and activities.
-Yes, (I grew closer to God) by seeing how one little event may change the future of even one girl and how the word of chastity can be spread so easily and quickly.
