Ten Things to Teach Your Daughters

1. Love the Lord your God with all your soul, mind, and body. Keep yourself pure.

2. Be a lady. People respect a true lady, even if they don’t understand her.

3. Dress to please God. Be pretty, feminine, and modest.

4. Get a good education, and prepare yourself to do something that will allow you to support yourself financially. You don’t know what the future holds.

5. Trust God for your Handsome Prince, if God has a man in store for you. Do not flirt!

6. Get a biblical perspective on singleness and “marriedness” from 1 Corinthians 7:34. (Yes, I invented that word!)

7. Learn obedience and respect for the authorities in your life, specifically: God, parents, civil authorities and laws, teachers and school rules, adults. (When you are married, this same obedience and respect will be for your husband.)

8. Learn to be a good homemaker. Know how to cook, clean, sew, organize, and keep a house. If your mother is not able to teach you these things, find a mentor to help you, and read cookbooks and home management books.

9. Prepare yourself to be a mother and teacher. (Sometimes, they are the same thing.)

10. Read the Bible and good books. Avoid very sensual romances, and read books about persons of character.
