Time has passed and the way women are perceived in today’s society has happily improved, she is finally free... This is great, if we take time to define what "free" means.
A liberated woman is not a domineering woman who feels like she needs to crush the men around her to “make place” for herself in society.
A liberated woman is a woman who understands her worth, who has had the opportunity to develop her abilities in a fulfilling way, and who pursues her dreams.
The modern woman seems always to be on top of the game in every area of her life. her life. She does well at work, manages her family life wonderfully, and remains feminine down to her nail polish no matter the circumstances. Everything seems so simple and yet …
A friend of ours and a producer of pornographic movies had a conversation while travelling on a plane that profoundly moved us. To our friend's question, "How do you recruit actresses?”, the producer replied, "It's very simple, we look for girls who are suffering from being hurt by their dads."
How is this possible? Suffering hurt by their fathers, which impacts their very identity, is still too often a part of the daily life of wonderful but deeply wounded women, hurting to the very depths of their souls.
We want our girls to grow up in an environment that allows them to flourish, to discover themselves, without becoming women who castrate the men around them or women lacking security in their identity. This fight is won, one day at a time, one heart at a time.
Thank you to all the parents, the single moms, the single dads who invest in and bless their daughters in order to help them become women according to the heart of God.
Some ideas to help you achieve this goal:
Choose her name carefully so that whenever you call your daughter’s name you can use the opportunity to bless her.
Daily remind her that she is loved for who she is: "you are my darling daughter, we are so glad that you have been entrusted to us!"
Remind her of her value in the eyes of her Heavenly Father: "He created you, you are a wonderful little girl."
Allow her to try sports and artistic activities that bring her deep joy so that she can discover her limits, her likes and dislikes, what makes her want to dream.
If you're a dad, show her the way a godly man conducts himself with a woman by respecting and loving your wife.
Be gallant with her, this will set the bar high and prepare your daughter for her future relationships with other men.
