Hey Ladies, Just wanted to say I so appreciate what you do! I’m a 24 year old pastor… Called evangelist, living in NL Canada who is so passionate about talking to young girls on becoming woman of God. A friend of mine and I actually do ‘girl nights’ here in our province and speak to girls on topics such as self-esteem, relationships, modesty.. etc. Here is a little something I wrote just a couple days ago, felt on my heart to share it.
“In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” -Proverbs 16:9
For most of my younger teenage years, I would spring on any new attractive guy who came into my social circle as if he was prey. However, age 17 in January of last year, after another failed relationship, I decided that I was sick of behaving like this; thus I spent a year growing with the Lord, with Him on the throne of my heart. I laid down my desire to be married and asked God that His perfect timing prevail. And it did. Out of the blue only a year after my decision to get serious about the things of God, he brought an old acquaintance of twenty years of age into my life, and after a few months of growing in friendship and Godliness together, he made known his deep love for me and his intention to marry me. Since that day it has been six months, and I have not looked back once. Truly God’s plan is superior to man’s in every respect!
My encouragement to other believing young ladies is Psalm 37:4–’Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.’ Make Him your focus and not finding Mr Right. God has your future husband. Pray for him daily. Draw close to the Father and allow Him to prepare you to be that unique and perfectly suited help meet that your future husband needs. You will never regret this decision. Believe me, I have not yet.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!
My name is Nicole and I will be 23 in April. I am the wife to the most incredible man and a mommy to our 10 month old son. I am also 31 weeks pregnant with our daughter. From a very young age God prepared my heart to be a stay at home wife and mother. I felt it was my calling for as far back as I remember and I pursued it diligently. I actually found contentment in preparing to be a wife and mother, because I knew it was my calling, so I knew I didn’t have to worry about when it would happen, I just needed to focus on being ready. I loved cooking, teaching, planning, and volunteering. When I was 19, out of no where I met my husband. I was in such a place of contentment and joy, I didn’t realize he was even “the one.” It didn’t take me long to see it though as he won my heart and I couldn’t imagine a life with out him. There is no place greater than being in the Will of God. I love encouraging girls to not be afraid to pursue their calling to be a keeper of the home. Marriage and motherhood are beyond wonderful and I am so thankful for my years preparing for it!
Hi! I’m 19 years old and just graduated from being homeschooled all my life this past spring. I just came upon your website today! I think it’s awesome!!!! What I want most in this physical life is to become a wife and mother! I want to be able to say with my future husband “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!” This is so awesome that you guys started this encouraging website! Thanks!
I think it is a high privilege and blessing to be able to serve others. It shows a heart of servanthood and humility. This isn’t to say that serving others while they sit around and simply take advantage of your hard work is wise. For, we must all assist with chores and seek to be a blessing in this way to those around us. I admire women who care for their homes and are content with being a homemaker and godly help-meet for their husbands. As a single girl still living at home with my parents, I can testify to what a joy it is for my mom when I help with chores or offer to make dinner. Surely, moms have so much to take care of and it can be tiring to take the responsibility of maintaining an organized home on yourself as the mom. It would be nice to raise kids, both male and female, who know how to keep their room and work/play space organized and who learn how to maintain a clean room…rather than allowing junk to pile up. It also teaches responsibility and instills in them a heart that knows how to take care of all God has “entrusted” them with; i.e. toys, video games, clothing, shoes, etc.
I’m really loving this blog. I was beginning to think i was the only girl who thought this way! I’m enjoying reading all of these posts, and breathing out a sigh of relief that I’m not alone in this crazy world. This is an incredibly encouraging blog. I look forward to reading more.
I’m eighteen, and still at home, no plans or desire for college (I’ve been home schooled for the majority of my life). For a while I was quite self-centered, and I didn’t help out much in my home, so basically I was just living at home (I did not have my driver’s license until September of 2013). Last year my dad was diagnosed with Leukemia, and I had to step up to the plate. Now, I enjoy caring for my family, helping my mom out with dishes, laundry, and driving my four younger siblings to-and-fro. I still wonder about my future, and pray for my future husband, but I also enjoy serving my family and being able to glorify God at home, until He reveals His plan for the rest of my life. I’m following God’s heart, instead of following my own.
Thank you so much for this blog, and especially this post. So glad I found it!
