Today, our western world is very much like Egypt of old. We have plenty of everything. People worship many different gods, and some even believe that they are divine. And, similar to that time, there are people who worship one God—the LORD. And they, too, are viewed oftentimes as odd and not a favorable part of the culture. We see a growing antipathy towards Christians and Jews who don’t follow the patterns of popular culture.
Our society is changing before our very eyes. Many of us grew up in the era when we memorized Psalm 23 or Psalm 100 in school. Now we see constant efforts to remove any reference to God and the Bible from public places and to reduce Christmas to “Happy Holidays”. Many of us were children at a time when two little girls could safely ride their bikes to a public park and play all day unafraid. Now they can’t even walk to school unattended. We also see societal decline played out in a host of problems all too typical within the modern-day family.
But we can strengthen our girls and give them the sure footing they’ll need as their generation assumes the leadership roles of our society one day. This website aims to provide information on helps to that end—books, websites, DVD’s, radio broadcasts, and more to help you help them to face the future unafraid and armed for the challenges it may bring. I will describe specific books or other helps in my blogs, and I welcome you to contact me with additional resources you think mentors of girls would want to know about.
While this may sound challenging, it can be exciting. We are each on a journey called “Life,” and we’re wrestling and racing through our time on earth with victory in sight. Let’s mentor those girls who follow in our footsteps. Remember that “We are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12.
The passage goes on to describe the armor we must wear in this battle. We can help our girls put on this armor from God, and what a privilege it can be—a vital assignment to take on. Let’s help and encourage each other in this calling. With Christ working through us, we can make a difference in girls’ lives.
