This was a great opportunity to be away from the distractions of our busy homes, and to spend time with our precious young women. The program was very good and the interview continues today and tomorrow. If you have young women in your life this is powerful stuff. How I wish their had been someone addressing these issues when I was a young woman.
They had a young woman named Erin on who gave testimony to the fact that she had nightmares every night, that were feed by her belief that she would be alone all her life. She had these for years, until she and Dannah discussed the fact that the underlying issue was really Erin's belief in several "lies." One of those lies was that "Every man in her life would leave her." (interestingly it started when her parents divorced) She believed the lie that Satan was whispering to her. As they prayed together Erin asked God to give her verses to replace the lies. The one God gave her for this was "I will Never leave you, nor forsake you."
Today's message will be on "Celebrating Inner Beauty - Why do young women often consider themselves less attractive than they really are?" You can read transcripts from every Family Life Today program by going to their website www.familylife.com.
Becky and I were able to share with our young women about lies that we believed as young women that really affected us in our adulthood, and the girls talked a little bit. It was fun and encouraging to have that time together. Young women like ours, being raised to honor and serve God, need lots of encouragement and opportunities to be with others who are being raised in a similar manner!
