Girls, I would strongly urge you to keep a journal and write in it often. A place where you can write down what you are learning, how God is shaping your character, and the small happenings in your home that make up your life.
Right now you may think your hand-writing is poor, or it is not fun to write paragraphs in one sitting. It is a good and worthy practice to strengthen your hand to write in a feminine and legible way. It will help you form your memories and give agility to your thoughts.
But just think, as you grow, the little bits and pieces you collect in your journal will one day become an invaluable chronicle of your family’s life, and years from now you will be glad that you did.

When I meet godly women or read about them in history, I want to be like them. I see Jesus shining through their loving, selfless servant’s hearts and they inspire me. But have you ever thought that these women were not always like this?
Becoming more like Jesus takes work. Preparing to be future wives, mothers and homemakers means more than dreaming about “someday”. Can you think of some ways that you can be more like Jesus right now by serving your family?
Develop the eyes of your heart to see the little things around you that can be done to help your family and make your home a more pleasant place.
