(Me and my girls)
"My dear young women, with all my heart I urge you not to look to
contemporary culture for your role models and mentors.
Please look to your faithful mothers for a pattern to follow.
Model yourselves after them, not after celebrities whose standards
are not the Lord’s standards and whose values may
not reflect an eternal perspective.
Look to your mother. Learn from her strengths, her courage, and her faithfulness.
Listen to her. She may not be a whiz at texting;
she may not even have a Facebook page.
But when it comes to matters of the heart and the things of the Lord,
she has a wealth of knowledge. As you approach the time for marriage and
young motherhood, she will be your greatest source of wisdom.
No other person on earth loves you in the same way or is willing to
sacrifice as much to encourage you and help you
find happiness—in this life and forever."
