Raising our Daughters

I just had to take a moment to share a thought. Yesterday I was checking out at the grocery store...okay, it was Thursday. The checker who was in her 20's had gotten to my bulk and produce items. Now I didn't have anything gourmet in there, just basic produce and bulk items. More than twice she looked at me and asked what something was. I couldn't believe it. Here is a young lady that should know what these things were. Two were walnuts and beets. I thought, my own girls know what those things are. Which reminded me of the importance of training our sons and daughters to know all aspects of life. It's important that they have the domestic tools to go along with all the others. I run into way too many young people who haven't a clue as to how to clean, cook or take care of themselves, let alone someone else. So to all you ladies who take the time to pour into your children and even get harassed sometimes for being too hard on them, keep up the good work. Your future sons and daughters in laws will thank you someday!! As will your own children when they have clean clothes that they washed and are eating something other than hot dogs and top ramen. With Joy UNquenchable,


  1. Hi Kirstin! Thank you so much for your sweet words of encouragement. It is amazing how "dumb" our society is becoming and it is wonderful to know that others are trying to raise intelligent and responsible kids too!
    Your story about the cashier was funny. I have experienced several things that call into question the brains of our young people!
    Have a great Sunday,
