When you hear the news and watch television it's like you are watching society deteriorate. You see young girls and women who have completely lost sight of the fact that they are treasure...
The quote from a mother to her five daughters on a reality show once made me genuinely ill. With one thoughtless comment, that mother removed some of her daughters value. "EVERY GIRL sleeps with her High School boyfriend".
I was sad and losing a little hope until I entered the cyber-world and met so many wonderful young women and mothers who honor family and marriage, I love that they have come to me for advise from an older women's perspective, it helps me to keep my wife/mom mind still a-goin'
One day a myspace friend wrote me a thank you note and told me I was her Titus2 woman. I had always thought I was trying to be a Proverbs 31 woman but when I read the scripture my friend had sent I cried because I am indeed, a Titus 2 woman. My heart is to do what I call "Lovey-ing(Troy word) on women" It took me many years to learn to love my simple blessed life, and I want to do all I can to help others learn this lesson way earlier than I did.
I was reading an article today and I was reminded to reach out to others just to let them know, this older woman is here for you...
Titus 2:3-5"Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.
Got this from the "Raising Homemakers" site...
Ladies, do you long to find a Titus 2 woman to mentor you? Do you wish that you had someone to ask advice from? Or perhaps you are an older godly woman and you wonder who would be interested in what you could share.It can seem rather frustrating and lonely, but I want to encourage you to take heart. You may not have a line of older godly women standing at your front door ready to assist you, and you may not have a large group of younger ladies hanging on your every word, but you do have God’s word and the opportunity to live out these beautiful passages.There may be women in your church that may be hesitant to just offer advice, they may feel like they would be “intruding.” I want to encourage you younger women to ask questions and start conversations with the “older” godly ladies in your churches and in your communities. I also want to encourage the older ladies to be aware and look for ways to bless these younger women.I think there has been such a disconnect between the generations due to so many programs at church where everyone is separated by age that we have forgotten how to integrate the ages and learn from each other. So instead of just letting it continue on this way, let us be the ones to approach the women of different ages and live this scripture out.The beauty of Titus 2 is that it give us clear instructions on what we are to be teaching and what we are to be learning. Let these scriptures guide us in our conversations. It may be a little awkward at first, but pray and ask the Lord to open up opportunities and help you to persevere.Perhaps you are in a situation where you just are not aware of anyone yet who you can mentor or be mentored by, there are so many other ways to learn from godly women from reading their books, listening to online mentoring sessions and reading their blogs.Of course, you can live out these scriptures right now by teaching and training your daughters to love and cherish family and home. Let the beauty of Titus 2 come alive and be blessed
