Proverbs 31:25-26 She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
Where are the strong women in the twentieth century? Lately I have been taking a close look at young women of today’s society. I am a mother of a beautiful teenager and also an aunt of many nieces. I look back at when I was growing up as a young lady. The things I was taught I took with me to this day.
I was taught to respect myself because I was a lady. I was always taught exceptional manners, not saying good morning or afternoon to an elder would end with trouble. My grandmother always said “manners will take you far”. I was taught that God gave me virginity as a gift. Which was a hard lesson learned when I found out that I was pregnant at the age of nineteen.
