Hey there! We’re Lilly (left) & Madie (right) Hobbs, and we are so excited that you’ve stopped by to learn more about our ministry! A little background on us: I (Lilly) am 18 years old and Madie is 16 years old. We have lived in Ohio our entire lives, except for living in Fort Worth, Texas for 3 months (but that’s another story). The Few was actually created from a passion that we had to get serious about being serious for Jesus and to see others do the same, together.
The Few started out in our church, youth café, where I invited 10 teenage girls to come and do a Bible study with Madie and I on Thursday nights. We decided June 7th, 2018 would be our first night to meet. One girl showed up. Yeah, you can imagine how discouraged we were. Looking back though, we don’t regret anything. I could share with you story after story of how we have, and still are, seeing God move; which is pretty much the purpose for this blog. We want to share stories of how we are seeing the Lord move, and to encourage you to be one of The Few who will get serious about being serious for Jesus alongside us.
Currently, we are about four years into meeting weekly, and multiple girls across the U.S. have committed themselves to seeing The Few reach the masses with the Gospel. We meet in our living room once a week to be in God’s presence together, and man, some powerful things have happened within our group. We pray, we worship, we study, we share, but most importantly we have all gotten serious about Jesus!
It is our prayer that you will get involved and catch this vision with us. We try to post a new blog post every Thursday, and then some additional stuff on our Parler, Telegram, and Instagram pages throughout the week. We also have a podcast called “A Few Minutes With The Few” which you can find on all your favorite podcast platforms such as Apple Podcasts or Spotify! We upload a new episode there every Monday! By following and keeping up with what we are doing over here at The Few, you help us to continue to share real Biblical truth with others.
Just in case you were wondering, our name came from a quote by Elisabeth Elliot who once said, “The preoccupations of young women – their looks, their clothes, their social life – do not change very much from generation to generation. But in every generation, there seem to be a FEW who make other choices.”
