G.I.R.D.L.E. is a prodigy of Diva Night a women’s support-networking two-day retreat that originated in Pontiac, Michigan under the leadership of Kiesha Carroll. Diva Night was an attempt to create an environment in which women could mature and grow with each other. This was a successful program with her vision and dedication along with then coordinator Catherine Garry-Johnson.
In December of 2002, Ms. Garry-Johnson held a meeting with the former planning committee of Diva Night, Kimberly Spruill, Junotia Gage, Michelle Johnson, Mary Richardson, and Kimberly Allen, it was at that meeting that G.I.R.D.L.E., God Is Raising Devoted Ladies for Excellence a women’s support system was birthed.
In May of 2004, G.I.R.D.L.E. implemented a sorority; Divine Alpha Queens for teenage girls ages 12-17. Divine Alpha Queens would be a sisterhood designed to mentor teenage girls all year round. The sorority focused on bonding as sisters, relationship issues, education, and community services.
In 2014 G.I.RD.L.E. reorganized changing the focus to deliverance and support. Directed by Catherine Garry-Johnson, G.I.R.D.L.E. is designed to provide assistance and shape the lives of women, ages twelve and older, empowering them with the principles of Jesus Christ enabling women to meet their full potential.
