Transitioning Girls Into Young Ladies
By Jerry & Sheryl Ross
“Biblical femininity has all but disappeared in our modern culture. Satan has systematically targeted the tenets of Biblical femininity, eliminating them one by one from our society. However, many Christian young ladies are turning their hearts to God, their backs to the world, and reclaiming their Biblical heritage. America needs Godly wives and mothers. We need modest, faithful, feminine servants. If this is going to happen, a generation of young ladies needs to go back to the Bible and choose to embrace its divine definition of femininity.”
I just finished reading this book recently, as well as the book BIBLICAL MANHOOD, and I am SO excited about adding these books to our website. They are very needful, and a great resource for helping our young people know and understand their role as a young lady or young man, based upon Bible principles. I personally believe it would be beneficial for parents to read these books to know how and what to teach their children regarding their femininity or masculinity, regardless of the age of their children. It would also be wise to have our teens read the book, and do a study of it with them, helping them understand their God given role, and how to apply the principles in their own lives.
The Bible principles taught in this book are a result of a study of what the Word of God has to say concerning “young woman/women”, “damsels”, “daughters”, and “maidens”. From this study flows twenty-one tenets of Biblical femininity. (For the purpose of this study, a young lady is defined as a female between 12 and 30 years of age.)
Just a small excerpt from the first chapter – Tenet 1:
“A Bible study on the subject of “young ladies” yields a first, great, and overwhelming truth – every young lady will at some point make a choice as to whose daughter she will be. The Bible draws a distinct line between the daughters of God and the daughters of this world. The first step toward Biblical femininity is a clear-cut decision to embrace as your heavenly Father, the God of the universe.
This is the starting place. The world has always been awash with young ladies whose lives, actions, and attitudes undermine the moral and spiritual foundation of their culture. The young lady who decides to be the exception is priced, in God’s eyes, above rubies! And because of her wise choice, she is graced to wear the title: daughter of God.”
The book concludes with a covenant for young ladies to sign before God to choose to live by these 21 principles of Biblical femininity. For example:
For my God, and upon my honor…
…I will choose to be a daughter of God and not a daughter of the world.
…I will embrace the divine purpose of my creation.
…I will begin now to prepare for the young man God has created for me to marry.
This is an EXCELLENT encouraging resource for our daughters, as well as a challenge for all ladies.
