June 1, 2010 I published the last issue (at least for a while) of Girl Talk my teen girl magazine. Since this blog was originally designed for the purpose of publishing weekly devotions for the magazine and later the magazine itself I decided to create another blog that isn’t connected to Girl Talk.

I’ll probably still publish book reviews or other items here now and again but you’ll more often find me at Trusting Him with Today. I hope you’ll stop by

Ten Things... From a Mother's Heart

By Cleora Williams
For this issue of Girl Talk I thought I’d do something a little different so instead of writing an article from a Mothers perspective I compiled a list of ten (10) things I want my daughters to know about me, about our relationship.

Although our individual list may vary I am certain that most mothers would agree with the items I’ve listed.

(1) Trust us (we will not knowingly mislead you)

(2) We want the best for you in every area of your life.

(3) We love you unconditionally (Only God himself loves you more than we do)

(4) We want you above all things, to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

(5) We have high standards set for you. We know that you're not perfect, but we believe in you.

(6) Value yourself. (your mind, your body, your soul, you are priceless you cannot be purchased)

(7) Enjoy the stage in life you are at, don’t be too anxious to get to the next level it will come before you know it.

(8) You do not have to give in to peer-pressure or follow the crowd, be the unique person that we know you are.

(9) Be proud of who you are. Take pride in all that concerns you (not only dressing up)

(10) We (Mothers) are not the enemy; we are your biggest supporters. Talk to us, we want to hear what you have to say
