Val & Abby share keys to WAITING with GRACE, It's a Growth Thing! The conversation continues a year later, episode 96

Last week, in episode #95, you listened to a conversation between me and my daughter Abby (at the time of recording she was a sixteen-year-old junior in high school). The conversation continues this week, recorded a full year later, in episode #96. Abby shares some keys that helped her slow down this process, how she waited a little longer than society around her to open the door of her heart to the complex world of romantic relationships, and what important purposes she was focusing on during the waiting.  She hasn't waited sequestered in her house, staring out an attic window, like the fairy tale character Rapunzel, in the movie Tangled.  No, there has been important work to do in the waiting - there are vital GROWTH purposes in WATIING WITH GRACE.It’s not really just about WAITING a little longer, it’s about PREPARING for something that is valuable, and it's about BECOMING who God created UNIQUE YOU to be, not just becoming who someone else is attracted to or that would gain the approval of a romantic interest.CLICK HERE to listen to episode 96,  Books:  Lady in WaitingThe New Lady In Waiting Book And here's a book for your sons:What He Must Be to Marry My DaughterEarlier episodes that deal with this topic:Episode 22 - Are We Going to Teach Our Kids that Sex is Sacred?Episode 32 and Episode 33 - A Girl's Self-Worth, parts 1 & 2Episode 72 - Teach Your Kids the Truth About LoveBible Learning Resources that Abby used:Awana materialsThe AdventumAdventures in OdysseyNIV Live - Audio Bible ExperienceThe Bible Recap PodcastOther dramatized Bible Audio CD sets

Do you long to be a more intentional mom but you feel overwhelmed or weary or just don't have a clear path to the next step toward a successful family life? The Practically Speaking MOM, Val Harrison, is here to bring some order to the chaos and some focus to the confusion. You don’t have to be the perfect mom to have a strong family, you need a plan! Join author, speaker, mother of seven, and grandma of two, as she shares wisdom and encouragement about the six areas of an intentional mom's life. You'll learn from her years of experience, successes, mistakes and redemption. Val and her husband Rich, married 28 years, have three married children, two more in college, and two in her homeschool. This podcast covers all stages of parenting, from babies to toddlers to teens and beyond. Val wants to encourage you to not become weary in your work as an intentional mom, "Even with all its unique personalities, imperfections and scars; your family is God's masterpiece. Your efforts matter in this worthy journey of motherhood." Galations 6:9 says, "Do not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time you'll reap a harvest if you do not give up." Let's walk this marathon journey of motherhood TOGETHER, right here, every Monday on the Practically Speaking MOM podcast, the place for an intentional mom to build a strong family.
