Training Our Daughters in Godliness

November 1, 2007

 How can we train our girls to be godly?  We must be godly.  As mothers we need to seek and love our God with all our heart so that we can show our girls what it looks like to be godly.  Here are a few things you can do with her to help accomplish this.

~Study these scriptures together.  Discuss how they apply to you right now.

§         Proverbs 31:10-31

§         Galatians 5:22-23

§         Galatians 6:7-8

§       1 Timothy 2:9-15

~Activities

§         Talk with other godly women in your life.  What advice do they have about becoming a godly young lady?

§         Talk to other men (dad, grandfather, etc..) about what they admire or value most in the women in their life.

§         Proverbs 31:10 says, “A wife of noble character who can find?
       She is worth far more than rubies.”  Learn about rubies.  What else in scripture is compared to rubies?

§         Study the lives of godly women in history. What traits did they have that set them apart from other women? 

§         Read about some ungodly women in the Bible or history.  What was the end result of their life

    You shouldn’t teach any child in religious thoughts, you should let them grow up and then, when they have made a formerly opinion, they will be able to chose if they want to be “godly” or not. People like you make this world a worst place to live in, if you teach your daughter in a very strict religious way, first in her’s life she will be ashamed in school when the learn about evolution, for example; in my opinion she should be able to chose between be religious or not, if you teach it from young she would never be able to chose (remember the difference between humans and animals is that humans can choose). What you should do is theach her worth life values, like responsibility, honor or rationalism, that will make your daughter a “good person”, and not a couple of lies (remember the society is capable to argue against those lies, and then the base of your daughter’s belivings will be under thread, and then she will be “alone”). Please don’t make things until you thought the consecuencies, and please don’t bring more FANATICS to this planet (we don’t need more, there’s enought problems with those we have)

      People like you astound me. You are ridiculing us for the same thing you are protesting. Youre upset about us giving our children something to believe in and a way of life that is not harmful to others, so why do you care? How about this? I will pray for you. That oughtta tick you off. Spend more time worying about yourself and your own belief system than spending time online attacking women who are actually trying to do soemthing positive for their kids.

      Peter,
      So sad to see a man proven he has nothing better to do than knock down a woman doing the role a man should be doing (being the head of the household and leading that home to the Lord). Your opinion is your opinion, but what are you even doing on this website, if you don’t even believe in who our source is. We are woman of God, who pray for our husbands and train our daughters be Godly too. The men may be the head but the woman is the neck and without the neck to move the head the man has no direction. I pray the woman in your life continues to pray for your eyes to open, and for you to know who really is blessing you with life, liberty and finances.

      I just have a few questions for you Peter why is it that people have his or her children go to school and get an education. We push for them to continue his or her education after high school so that they can be successful in life on earth. Well a man or woman who desires to raise a child after Gods own heart is one who not only desires for his or her child to lead successful lives on earth but they desire for their child to have eternial life. Life is so much more then the time we have on earth. Parents do not allow their children to grow up and then deside if he or she wants and education. THey push them to be educated so that they can use the knowledge for the future. Training a child up in the Lord is done for the same purpose. We desire for our childrent to have the right information to life our his or her life to the fullfillment that God has planned for them. Jerimiah 29 :11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Knowing this why would wond choose to follow plans which are not of the Lord.

    I enjoyed reading the many good ideas in your post. I too am trying to train a Godly girl.

    Our country was founded by Godly men and women who were trained in their youth. We would not have the freedom we have if it were not for them. I fear for our country if parents do not bring up Godly children.

    Great set of posts Dana! Spot on. We have done these things with our daughters and they know the truth. Teaching them with words PLUS teaching by example is the best way to go.

    If we don’t teach, then our children will go the way of popular culture, which is akin to that old saying, ‘the blind leading the blind’.

    Blessing,

    To Peter:
    I personally think that the reason our world is in such a mess today is because parents gave their children too much freedom of choice and no guidance. What would our country be like if everyone was given the freedom to choose to do whatever they wanted, there was no law or government or no order? Everyone needs guidance, no matter your age. When we are children this is our learning and growing time, this is why they go to school. Do we give them a choice as to whether they want to learn or not? These are my children and I don’t want them to grow up to be just “good people”. My children understand that they have a choice everyday. They can choose right or wrong. They have a choice as to who they will follow and who they will turn from. I teach them by my example, reading the scriptures to them, and praying with them. I cannot force my children to believe that God is their Creator and Lord. I cannot force them to make the right decisions. That is their choice. What I do is I teach them what I know to be truth. I teach them how they can take the words in the Bible and live it today. I show them by the way I live that when I obey Gods commands, I am at peace and I have a joy that others don’t have who don’t follow God. they make the choice themselves. So far, each of my children, ages 7 & up, have made that choice to follow and obey God. I am not guaranteed that all of my children will follow Christ, but I will do all that I can to train them in godliness, and pray that they will choose him on their own. Salvation is not forced, it is merely accepted.

    Praying that you will one day see and understand the Truth.
    Dana

I too am on the journey of raising two beautiful daugthers and I am looking forward to looking up these scriptures and learning them together!! May God bless you as you continue to help educate others on God’s love and the importance of our role as helpmate and mother!
    Many blessings to you and your sweet family!!

    Thank you my sisters in Christ 🙂 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6.

    I have a son of 22 and a daughter of 25. This year they both accepted Jesus into their hearts. God used a willing vessel, their Mum to give them the salvation message. Our prayers, faith, trust and steadfastness to show our children the love of Jesus is amply rewarded by our Father in heaven. Be encouraged. God Bless, Sue.

    People who have the right to express their own thoughts about atheism, free thinking or the freedom of choice should also learn to accept that people who believe in an ALMIGHTY GOD and HIS wisdom to bring up their children. Why are you so hypocritical?

    Next, critics like Peter and Tara Wieland, should check out statistically how much of their claim is true. They’d be truly surprised, I bet.

    Dana, if you do something wrong or stupid, the world will pounce on you without mercy. Can’t you see that even if you do or say something right, truthful or statistically proven, you will have the likes of Peter and Tara to downplay you. We are going to be criticized both ways, don’t you see? So, do we stop doing what is right, truthful or proven???? People on the Lord’s side, should just persevere through this pressure.

    Go on, Dana. May YAHWEH’s Word continue be your wisdom through Adonai Yeshua.

    Your brother in the only Messiah,
