A Mom and a Family of Men!

Teach your young daughters this....

Over the past years Heavenly Father has opened my eyes to so many things. But one of those things has really broken my heart. The way men treat women. They way women will love without bounds a man who is so undeserving. How women will give themselves over so fully into the hands of men who are not ready nor willing to love them the way they so long to be loved. I have seen this "train-wreck" of "love" on so many marriages and the resulting children from such a union.


One of these relationships went so far as to end in one of these men taking his wife's life. So mothers and fathers, heed this, teach your sons to be good husbands and your daughter's to be good wives. But mostly for the girls help them to learn to tarry a bit more when they think they have found a mate. Teach them to love good so that they can know when they have found it in a man and when they have not. Do not anger your children, but raise them in a way that they can respect even while they are young, so they will turn to you and not the world. The world is waiting to gobble up your precious ones, so teach them young what is right and wrong.


I don't think we spend enough time on our knees for our children and their future spouses. So how can we expect them to do the same? They must see us doing what we desire for them to do.

Blog post today just touched my heart. What a beautiful thing we could pass to a daughter, a neice, a friend. Simple and so true.

You, my dear, are one heck of a woman. I just love you Chelita. You see with your heart like no other person I have known. I have three girls of my own and I can only hope that I am teaching them to grow up to be good wives and pray that one day they will all have a husband that treats them with all of the love that they deserve.

Thank you so much for this. Sometimes I forget I'm raising future adults. I'm so busy just trying to get through today.

How true that we need to remember to teach our girls that they are priceless & deserve the absolute best. I spent way too much time trying to "fix" guys in my high school & college days. A lot of hurt from verbal, mental & emotional abuse went on for years. After surrendering to my heavenly Father I found my Prince. God is good! He is more than I ever prayed for. I pray I can steer my girls clear from the heartbreak I suffered and God will guide them each to their own Prince.
