This is a post to all the mothers out there training their young girls. I want you to know that I appreciate every one of you.

Your job is so important and integral to your daughters future. In your training you are teaching her to be a wife and mother and a keeper of the home.

Titus 2:3-5 Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.

This is a noble task and one not to be laughed at and if you train her correctly and with diligence both of you will be rewarded in your relationship.

Proverbs 22: 6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Not only will your training benefit her future husband and family but it will benefit younger girls around her.

My good friend has an eleven year old daughter who is just a beautiful young lady. Her mother (my friend) has been training her to help around the home and she is a wonderful example of her mothers training.

Our No 2 daughter who is a couple of years younger spent the day with this young lady and I am amazed and blessed by the way our daughter has been since spending time with her.

Her attitude had rubbed off onto our daughter in such a wonderful way. What an example she has been, she helps her mother without complaint and showed such a willingness that just blessed me.  This young lady wouldn’t even know that she is helping or guiding our daughter but she is.

I know that sometimes it doesn’t seem that we are getting anywhere in our training and we just might seem to be treading water, but be encouraged that there is a difference being made in the lives of our girls and those they come in contact with.






Mothers should we be training our sons to do household duties?

I really believe we should be training them in all aspects of life, not just outside bloke jobs.

There will be times when they need to be able to feed themselves, wash their clothes and look after themselves.  Maybe this will be in the mission field or when their wives have babies.


I believe in Gods order of creation.  Man was created first and women was created to be his helpmeet.  There is nothing anyone could say to make me see any different.

In Ephesians 5 it  says for the Husband to love their wives as Christ loved the church.

I want to prepare my sons to love their wives and to treasure them as their helpmeet.  I want them to realise the work involved in running a home and I also want them to be able to help their wives when the need arises.

Our No 1 son can cook a basic meal and he makes the best omelettes. I had a hernia operation last year and he really looked after us well. He managed all the washing, cleaning and cooking, with the younger ones help.

Our No 2 son who is 6 is just beginning his training and at the moment he empties the dish washer and sets the table, he also brings in the firewood and helps his sister collect eggs.  His duties will develop as he increases in age and I pray that I will have the patience to teach him all he needs to know.

Start training your sons (all your children really, whether girls or boys) as young as you can.  We are preparing our children to be husbands and wives, and to be diligent in all that they do.  This training will require diligence and consistency from us as parents as well and it will be hard work, but it will be fruitful work.

I want to encourage all mothers (and myself as well) to train their sons in the fine art of housekeeping.  It will only benefit them and their family in the future.

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.

What jobs are you training you sons to do??  Let us know how you go about this training, I need all the help I can get!!!
