I am a mother of two beautiful little girls and they are growing up so so so fast!!!
If anyone finds a way to stop time, please, let me in on that. 😉
Having a pre-teen and another one shooting right up behind her, Jacob and I have had to start having maturity talks with the girls. Mostly KP – our oldest.
Their little bodies are changing and boys are starting to tell them they’re cute…ugh, and so we have to be on top of PURITY conversations.
We refuse to let the world our their little friends teach them about sex, menstrual cycles, bras, boyfriends, etc.
When I was young, I went through the TRUE LOVE WAITS program in our church. I took a promise as a young girl to save myself for marriage and I kept that promise. It was something that was really important to me.
I want that same thing for my daughters BUT “purity culture” is on the attack. Even Christians and churches heavily speak against it.
Joshua Harris, the author of “I Kissed Dating Goodbye” has since denounced all his former beliefs and even his Christianity.
They blame the “legalism” of purity culture on further rebellion in teens. This is ridiculous. Teens are rebellious, not because they’re told to abstain, but because they have chosen to not stay pure and to be in sin. Period.
Teaching our children about purity is important. It’s extremely important. I want our daughters to know what God says about sex, marriage, being a wife and a mother, their bodies, etc.
With this being so close to my heart, I’ll be sharing posts about these topics and I hope they’re encouraging to mothers.
We will not go by what the world says for our children, we will go by what the Lord has said.
