(I come across this poem and I had to put it on here. I hope it blesses you girls!!!)

What a beautiful smile; A radiant girl
fell in love first time I saw her; She stays on my mind
I'd give anything; To know everything about her

There's light in her eyes; And know it's all for Him
She carries on and on; Like He was her best friend

She's in love; it's not hard to see
But I would like to believe it was with me
Someone got a hold of her heart
And He won't let go
And I know; She's in love

She looks to the sky; When she talks about Him
She believes He hung the moon; Said He had to go away
She waits for His return; Says He's coming for her soon

How can this be fair?
This guy can walk on water
Don't guess I've got a prayer
He's written love letters to reach her

She worships the ground He walks on
She just smiles when she says His name
It's a match made in heaven
I can't compete with the king of kings.

-A Christ-Consumed Heart

"Until a guy can truly say that about your life, you aren't ready for an earthly "Prince Charming." Until Jesus Christ is the obsession of your heart, you'll always be looking to mere men to meet needs only He can fill." - Leslie Ludy

Discovering your Purpose Before Dating!!!

Hi everyone,

It's me Donna.

I am very happy to share with you a message that God has given to me. I am a single woman, I have experienced this in my own life. As a single woman, I know the frustration, as well as, expectation of that special someone.

First: We began with how the Bible depicts a
" Virtuous Woman."
read in Proverbs 31:10-31

Second: Ask yourself - What are your intentions when you begin to date?

Third: Godly Standards.
1. A Godly man
2. Do we share the same beliefs ( very important not to be unequally yoked)
3. successful in the work force ( does he have a job?)
4. Etc.

Fourth: NO MEANS NO!!!!!
1. Make sure that he respects you!
2. Do not settle!

Fifth: avoiding lust!
Do not put yourself in a position that you may have a chance to be tempted!

sixth: putting a Godly filter on our minds!
Philippians 4:8

Seventh and final: How to know that this "guy" is lining up with what the word of God says he should be? Answer: GET IN THE WORD AND FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF!!!!

This is for someone who may be struggling with this same situation, and is looking for answers to know how to avoid all the drama!
Donna's advice: Just do it Gods way, He will never lead you in the wrong direction!

Christmas Meeting



Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Hello, this Sis. Ashley Byrd

I am pleased to introduce "The Kings Daughter's". To anyone who has not heard of it yet, it is a monthly event with girl participants ages 10-18 years old. Anyone is welcomed to attend, but of course common courtesy, modesty, obedience will be expected of attendees. Girls that attend will be taught what it means to become a woman of God by learning what is expected of them through God's Holy Word.

Immodest dress may be defined to include short skirts, short shorts, shirts that do not cover the stomach, tight clothing, low-cut shirts, strapless shirts or dresses, or clothing that emphasizes certain areas of the body

“In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.” (I Timothy 2:9-10)

If you’re not sure about any particular item of clothing just always remember longer is definitely more modest than shorter. Great care should be taken to ensure modesty in dress. This care will show that you respect the body that God has given you

Lesson #1 MODESTY

Well....we had a very successful King's Daughter meeting last Friday night. I haven't laughed that had in a long time. The girls really enjoyed it. Here are some highlighted things that we went over during our meeting.

Intro – Definition of MODESTY
 MODEST – Not conceited or vain, not self-assertive, not displaying ones body, freedom from exaggeration. Synonyms- Moderate, meek, delicate, humble, innocent. Antonyms- Conceited, boastful, arrogant, prideful, egotistic.
 I Tim. 2:9 gives us a command to be modest in all things
 I Pet. 2:9 Tells us that we are to be different from the world in the way we act, dress, talk, who we choose to be around, etc.
 A Christian woman should desire to dress and be modest in all things (not because it’s necessarily fun or easy sometimes, but because it pleases the LORD!!
 We need to dress in a manner that is pleasing to HIM!!
 The Bible says that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Ghost!!! We need to Glorify him not Glorify our bodies. We need to point people to the Savior not to our hips, breasts, or butt.
 Your clothing should be a frame for your face not to be used to emphasize specific body parts.
 Ask yourself this question. Does God care more about fashion or modesty?

 How many of you want to marry a 100% Godly man?
 A popular saying concerning RELATIONSHIPS states “whatever bait you use determines the type of fish you’ll catch.”
 When young women dress provocatively it draws the attention of young men who are more interested in their bodies than their minds, heart or personalities.
 Many women think the way to find a man is to fix up the outward appearance while all- together neglecting the inward. Such aggressive women may very well find a husband but she won’t find a Godly one. She’ll find one of the world just like she is!!
 A 100% Godly man will see right through that kind of woman!! They will not want someone that looks and acts like the world.
 Prov. 31:30 says it best. “Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

 To a Godly man a woman can be the most beautiful woman in the world but if she is LUEDE, SLOUCHY, FILTHY TALKING, ARGUMENTATIVE, CRITICAL, BOSSY, SILLY, SELF- PITTYED, LOUD MOUTH, OR DUMB she will not be attractive.
 Yes, guys do have a natural attraction to the look of the woman on the outside, but that doesn’t mean you have to expose yourself to create beauty.
 To a Godly man slutty clothes are nauseating!!! (if it’s not then he’s not where he needs to be with God and is not husband material yet anyway!) He’s NOT QUALIFIED!!!
A godly man is attracted to a woman who:
 Has a gracious manner.
 Is pleasant and cheerful with a healthy sense of humor.
 Is discreet in the use of her body.
 Has an upbeat, hopeful view of life.
 Is not easily distraught.
 Can express her personal vies without being forward or pushy.
 Has a good way with children.
 Is comfortable with herself as a woman.
 Has initiative and a healthy imagination.
 Is faithful and trustworthy with information.
NOW IT’S TIME FOR OUR MODEST IS HOTTEST FASHION SHOW……. Where all the latest fashions prove that modesty is in fact the way to go!!! Why, you say? Well let’s take a look at these not so lovely models and find out!! (encourage them to laugh and participate)

Things to Remember about MODESTY
o Modesty is not just with how you dress. It’s in speech, jewelry, makeup, perfume, etc.
o PERFUME - Someone once said “if your perfume enters the rooms before you do….you’re wearing TOO much!!” (The same goes for your fragrance lingering in a thick cloud after you’ve left a room.)
o MAKEUP- should be used to enhance not cover up.
o JEWELRY- Just remember - Don’t be Mrs. T
o SPEECH- Don’t be pushy, loud mouth, chatter box, filthy talking
We are to please God in every area of our live. As a Christian we are to represent Christ to a lost and dying world by daring to be different. Hold your head up high and lift up a standard of purity and holiness!!!!

Letter to Parents

Dear Parent,

I am so excited to tell you about The King’s Daughter’s, a group of young ladies ages 10-18 that will be meeting once a month at my house. This is a new ministry opportunity that will help us as parents and spiritual leaders to reinforce the Word of God into our young daughters through fun interactive lessons. The King’s Daughter’s initiative is to aid in helping young ladies become the women that God has created them to be by confirming them of their Royal Calling!
My vision for The King’s Daughter’s for each young lady that attends is that they will learn to appreciate their unique personality and their immeasurable worth to the Creator of the universe. I look forward to tackling such issues as self-esteem, positive peer- pressure, modest dress, setting goals, pursuing dreams, courtship, beauty, and even sharing the Gospel with others and so much more!
In my circle of Christian mentors I have several women that I look up to that are willing to provide much aid in these meetings offering them an opportunity also to do what God has called them to do. As seasoned women of God it is their calling to be mentors for our young daughters and to lead them in the way of holiness. The Word of God tells us “to be ye holy even as I am Holy.” And I know that you feel the same way I do that it is past time for us to be teaching these young girls how to live a HOLY and CONSECRATED life.
I am asking for your support. Our mission is to only complement what is already implemented in the home. And as you well know we cannot accomplishment much on our own without your support. I ask that you communicate with your child about what they will learn and find ways to reinforce the lessons at home. This will insure that your child will be receiving on both our end and yours the adequate attention that she so desperately needs at her fragile age. As a parent your child needs and wants you to stand by your boundaries and hold them accountable. It is so important to teach your child to take responsibility for his or her actions so they will grow up into mature adults.
My hope is that through this experience we as teachers, parents, mentors, and children can grow together in unity to accomplish more for the Kingdom of God. I ask that you to commit this to much prayer as I feel it will be a vital tool for God to use to mold and shape these young ladies into women of God on a mission!!

Thank You,
Ashley Byrd
