Big Girls Ministry (BGM) held their first ever Glam Inauguration on 13 March and it was certainly a night of glitz, glamor, and good girly fun. Headed by Josephine Lim, BGM is essentially a support group for girls aged 13-21 and it has a vision of reaching out to troubled girls to meet their needs and provide true love and friendship.
The Glam Inauguration was the first official gathering of BGM, and the girls came dressed in their best, with many donning pretty dresses and high heels. The event was kicked off with a soulful rendition of “Beautiful” by Moxi Looi. She serenaded the crowd with her stunning vocals and brought home the message that every one of them is beautiful.

After the song item, Josephine Lim shared the objectives and vision of BGM, as well as upcoming programs, which include workshops to empower girls, shopping sprees, and parties. Two girls, Rachel Lim and Lin Xiuzhen, were also invited to share their testimonies, which dealt with struggles such as depression, self mutilation and family abuse.
They shared how they started to change when they found God and experienced love from other members. Slowly but surely, their life turned around.
After the sharing session, the fun began. Various booths were set up providing services such as henna, nail polish, nail art, makeover, beads, and a song dedication counter. Excited chatter began to fill the air as the girls crowded around the various booths. The henna booth was definitely the hot favorite, as the skilled artist drew elaborate henna designs for the girls. The makeover booth also saw a steady stream of visitors as many girls were transformed into beauties by the talented makeup artists.
The girls were also treated to a sumptuous spread of handmade sandwiches, eggs, tidbits, chocolate crisps and more. As the event drew to a close, the girls were clearly reluctant to leave, and many stayed back to enjoy the fellowship with one another. Truly, the event was a tremendous success.
