God has been working on my heart for the past couple of years about starting a Bible Study and teaching time for girls. To teach them
what the Bible says about becoming a young woman after God's heart and a time of teaching the girls basic cooking, cleaning, and sewing skills along with manners and modesty. Sadly, it seems that the of girls today are not being raised knowing the basic skills needed to run a household and to love and take care of their husbands and children. I remember my mother diligently teaching me manners and courtesy to others but it seems today that many girls are loud, rude, and disrespectful. The girls of today need someone to take time to love them and show them what a true woman of God looks like, both on the inside and the outside. As I have been praying about this, one of my friends started a group like this in her church and God spoke
to my heart again, telling me He wanted me to do this.
I chose to name our group Titus Girls after the verses in Titus 2:3-5
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
We will meet once a month and each month I plan on asking a lady in the church to host our little group meeting where the Titus Woman will share her testimony and a devotion. We will then help the girls cook a meal, do a craft or sewing project, learn tips on cleaning and work on our manners.
I plan on using the Christian Lady's Handbook as we study and find out -
"Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies."
I received this book several years ago and although it is a small book,
it really hits some good points. It tells how there has been a decline in the last several generations of manners and politeness in Christians and non Christians alike and the reasons why. It then teaches many manners that a Christian Woman should be exhibiting in her life. I am praying that through this the women will grow closer to our girls and start to influence the girls more and that the girls will find godly role models and learn valuable skills that will help them as they grow into the godly women.
Our first Titus Girls meeting is on Saturday
and I am so excited as we start this time with the girls!
