Belle and I are going to Georgia tonight for the secretkeepersgirl conference. I am so excited to be with her. The times that it is just the two of us are few, and far between. The basis of secretkeepers is modesty, good self-image, and abstinence. Keeping your secret for your husband. I think its brilliant. I have learned from my own experience, and from having an older daughter…there is NO WAY to MAKE someone abstain. However, you can teach the reasons why it is right, teach what to expect, and be there for them every step of the way. Thats my plan. I am leaving it up to the Lord to give Belle what she needs, that spirit connection that will give her the strength, and the compass that she needs to navigate through this time.
I complain a whole lot about the kids growing up, because I am a selfish mommy, but don’t think for a minute that I don’t know how blessed I am to watch these babies that grew in me, and passed right through me, turn into grown ups…I do. I do. I do.
