She Is Yours: Trusting God As You Raise the Girl He Gave You based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Rather than focusing on all the things you could do to try and ensure you raise your daughter right, Wynter and Jonathan Pitts focus on praying for their daughters. Since they are currently raising four girls of their own, they have definitely had some practice in handing their daughters over to God and His plan. Throughout She Is Yours, they constantly reminded me that even though God placed Sarabeth as a gift in my life, she ultimately belongs to Him. And that I should be handing her back to Him on a regular basis. It was a startling reminder to me to see within the pages of She is Yours that it is my relationship with God that will speak the loudest to my daughter. It shouldn't have surprised me, considering how often I hear "actions speak louder than words." But it was a shock to see that written across the pages of the book. I've considered before that the way I live my life as an example for Sarabeth. But I've lately, especially since finishing She Is Yours, been feeling convicted of the fact that Sarabeth doesn't often see me having quiet time. Or even working out. Granted, it's a lot harder to do a workout when you have a toddler who wants to get involved, but it's important for Sarabeth to see. So, lately, if I sleep in and miss my early morning quiet time, I try to let Sarabeth still see me model getting that time in rather than pushing it off until nap time. It's such a difference in perspective for me. Finishing this book also has paused me to ponder what it would look like to help Sarabeth enter into a little bit of Bible study too. We've amassed a collection of books that share the stories of the Bible, and several children's bibles as well. Now is the time to help Sarabeth learn to love to read these stories over and over again. To invite her into the story and let her tell me what she learns. She picks up more than I think. One of my favorite parts of She is Yours is the prayers at the end of the chapters. Each one helps us point our hearts and thoughts toward handing our daughters back over to God. To remember that each daughter is ultimately his. And He cares even more than we do. I received a copy of the book from the publisher. This review is my own, honest opinion.
