It’s hard to watch my daughters grow up. But it’s also exciting to see them blossom into beautiful young women. There are so many messages bombarding teenage girls, and as a mom of three girls, I want to make sure that the important messages sink in. I loved this post by Barbie on our sister site, 5 Minutes for Faith, had one of those important messages.
This Summer, my 12 year old daughter reminded me of a promise I made to her when she was 10 years old.
“In the Summer before I go to 7th grade, you said I could wear makeup.”
How could she forget? I had the same rule with her older sister.
Oh be still my heart. My youngest daughter, who already seems so mature for her age, was about to embark on a new adventure.
As a mom of daughters, it is important that I teach them what God says about beauty…
