Ziegels Lutheran Church, Breinigsville, Pa., in April held its second S.E.L.F. (Spoiling Every Lovely Female) Extravaganza. The event — for fourth- through 10th-grade girls and their mothers — focused on bullying awareness and improving self-esteem. Participants were also given information about healthy relationships and nutrition.

Stylists donated time to give girls a new look and teach techniques. Manicures and makeup application were also part of the day.

Breakout sessions were offered on self-esteem, bullying, healthy relationships and relational aggression, provided by Turning Point and Crime Victims Council. Local musician Sarah Ayers sang and spoke.
