I want to see a lot of things in this world change. But I can't do it all. But I can make a dent by investing in the little life I've been blessed to care for. And while there are many things that need to be done in ending Human Trafficking, one of the greatest needs is to change the demand, and to change the demand means to change the hearts of our men and women, and that starts with our own.
As a mama of a little girl, I promise you, mamas of little boys:
To raise her to know her self worth and beauty. To be confident in the way God created her so that she wont have to seek confidence in your sons.
To raise her with a heart for modesty, so that she will feel beautiful with her most delicate skin covered in such a way that your sons will not have to be tempted and tested with what she wears. So that your husbands wont have to see a young girl with her curves flaunted in such a way... so that it will be her heart your sons desire.
To raise her to respect others and to see them for their self beauty and not world beauty, so that kindness would flow from her.
To raise her to respect those older and wiser, and seek wisdom from those who have walked before her.
To raise her to cherish this time on earth as something limited, so that your sons may be cherished as well.
To raise her to embrace the innocence of children, so that if she were blessed to birth your son's children, she would care and nurture them in love.
To raise her to find a passion and to seek after Jesus so that your sons may find their passion and seek after Jesus without a hindrance.
To raise her to love purity.
I promise to raise my daughter in such a way, that she grow into a young woman that will not cause your sons to stumble or their thoughts to wander. I promise to raise her in such a way that this world would change, if even the slightest, for the better.
And that is my promise to you.
