Lifelong Faithfulness

This week our girls youth group was studying Lies About Guys from the book Lies Young Women Believe.

I created notebooks as a means for them to express their commitment to their future spouse by writing their prayers for him, writing him love letters, songs, or to use as a journal of her journey in staying pure: heart, mind, and body for him.

My prayer is that as parents our marriages will be what our children long for and believe are worth waiting for.   I pray that they begin to see marriages that reflect Christs love for the church.  That women respect their husbands and men love their wives. (Ephesians 5:25-33)

We can't expect these kids to keep themselves pure: heart, mind and soul if we give them nothing to hope for. Words are not enough. 

This generation needs parents whose lives are a reflection of Jesus Christ and whose marriages reveal a love that is sacrificial, selfless, and unconditional.

For the notebooks I bought black binders, scrapbook paper and sheet protectors at Walmart.  Here are the pages I created for the inside.  The girls can add paper in the binders and always add more sheet protectors with added pictures or pages.  I suggested they make a final page for the binder to place a picture of their future spouse and them self.

You can find all pages I created at the following link:,95gfq8622ic79q6,ycaus1y11c65nw1,ygcxaamdg8gito2,8h718il1x7m5z79,94gebambzh0apd9,2f43ug970910ozg,rvhvjcjur2lhx1k

A great resource and also the source where I gathered some of the information from, to create the pages, is Teaching True Love to a Sex-at-13 Generation.
