Training Daughters

I have a daughter and that is all I know about raising so far but I do hope to have a boy one day! :)  With boys, you raise them to work but for girls we are to raise them to be homemakers .  I've learned a few things over the years from raising my daughter and will sure learn more as the years go by! I wanted to share what I've learned and do. Home Economics should be a course in every girl's life from when she is young on up .  I've entertained the idea of making a curriculum for Home Economics for girls but have decided I don't have the time.  When my children are gone and grown I plan on taking that wisdom and helping others with it.  I wish there were older ladies that would have taught me, but I had to learn on my own. I did find a Home Economics course geared towards my daughter's age that I'm adding to our curriculum this year and will let you all know how it is and then if I like it I will most likely recommend it on here!  It is by an older lad

Various Thoughts on Teaching our Children

Motherhood; Mothers of the Bible

You can read the Introduction to this series on Motherhood by clicking here .  I got the three names of Mothers from John Rice, however this post is in my own words and thoughts I received from the Lord.   We are going to look at some of the Mothers in the Bible and glean wisdom and example from them.  What is truly amazing of these Mothers is their awesome love that reveals itself from the pages of the Bible as we read about them.  Could that be said of you as a Mother for your children?  Or do you push them away and want to be rid of them so readily?  Oh, how we need to return to Godly Motherhood! If women could only understand the influence they have on their children and their future they would not take the role of Motherhood so lightly.  Will your chidren spend years trying to erase what you taught them and showed them by your life or will they rather build upon the Godly foundation that you laid?  Jochebed, the Mother of Moses was a woman of wisdom.  She saw that Moses was
