I often share my testimony with women about my almost-near disastrous relationship with my only daughter. Five years ago I made hard decisions to change my lifestyle and behavior so I could salvage our relationship when she was a teen. She’s a recent college graduate whose heart and desire is for the Lord. God has worked His grace and power in our home and family.
I’ve shared a lot of things with moms of girls over the years – young moms exasperated with small kids, moms raising preteens fearful of the path their daughter might take, and moms in the trenches with teen girls. Here are twenty things I often share that I’m glad I did in raising a girl, and twenty things I would do over.
20 Things I’d Do Again
- Be a stay at home mom to watch her grow
- Have tea parties
- Play dress ups
- Read books to her
- Take her to parks
- Sing to her
- Have play dates
- Lay beside her bed and pray for her when she’s sleeping
- Take her to museums
- Take her on a road trip
- Be honest about my life when she asked hard questions
