Daughters of the King

I had the privilege, on Friday evening, to show the young ladies of our church how to set a skin care routine. Having sensitive skin and a history of melanoma means I've spent lots of time in a dermatologist's office. It soaks in.

This event, called Daughters of the King, is set aside for our church women to lead by example with our girls. We spoil them with a fun dinner and delicious desserts, then a Bible study, silly games, crafts and loads of girl time.

The theme was "I am God's Masterpiece," and I loved showing the young ones how to scrub gently in small circles with the face wash, pat dry and smooth the moisturizer up towards Heaven.

Our pastor's wife came up with this concept and I believe it is important to demonstrate Godly modesty and womanly strength to our girls. They need to know their value and that we care. So many youngsters are left to their own devices in today's society, with their only mentors on Wikipedia and Facebook.

If we only complain about the mistakes of the next generation, and don't try to intervene on their behalf, we become part of the problem. I don't think our kids are a problem, I think they can be future leaders...with some guidance from their elders.
