A Titus 2 Story for Young Girls
Illustrated by Bethany Voss
The Bible has a lot to say about bringing up your children in the “training and instruction of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4). Today’s generation of girls are growing up in a culture that disdains Biblical femininity and homemaking. Titus 2 describes the pattern and the content for raising up the next generation. Mommy…Why? presents a fresh look at an old concept…the high calling of wife and mother.
Author Cindy Voss illustrates the blessing and privilege of this God-ordained vocation beautifully and persuasively. Your young daughter will gain insight into the how and the why of this special calling, and shows how older women can train younger women to think rightly in this area. The author is a homeschool mother of five adult children; her passion is to encourage moms and dads to intentionally and deliberately raise their sons and daughters to embrace Biblical femininity and masculinity, in the midst of our culture packed with feminism and humanism.
A Note to the “Older Woman” in the preface:
I wrote this book for young girls in an effort to inspire women of all ages to once again aspire to the high calling of motherhood. Gone are the days when little girls looked forward to becoming a wife and mother. Today, the spread of feminism has infiltrated the culture with a trend towards independence and “career fulfillment” that has enticed a whole generation of young women to exchange the God-given call of motherhood for a fleeting and worldly view of success.
As you read this book with your daughter let your love for being a wife and mother flow to your daughter. God has blessed us with a very high calling … one that He deems very precious. No, we are not always whistling while we do the laundry, nor are we forever patient and kind. We make mistakes and have bad attitudes. But God is good and He has blessed us with children who almost always ask, “Mommy…why?” When those opportunities come may we use them to give godly, practical wisdom , and may we seek to give all the glory to God.” — In Christ, Cindy Voss
