The Most important thing I can teach my daughter.

When I found out I was pregnant I was super excited about the responsibility God has anointed and blessed me with. It's something I take very seriously and I feel it should be.

I look forward to teaching my daughter so many things. To read, write, to find  beauty in the simple things in life. But  I believe really the most important thing I can teach my daughter, reveal to her and encourage her to receive and to know,  is her true identity in Christ! Because so many in the world are going to try and deceive her, and tell her who they think she is.  It is so important that those things don't matter to her and that the only opinion that should and does matter is from her Heavenly Beloved,  Father and King.
To remember that she is beautiful beyond compare. Not because of her looks or what she wears.  But to remember that she is beautiful because God made her that way. He looks at her, adores her and knows what He has made is really good!  Genesis 1:31

To remember that she is the Victor and never the victim. Because she is the true daughter of the most High God. A spiritual warrior that cannot be defeated.

"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." -1 Corinthians 15:57

  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. -Philippians 4:13  

  For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. -Romans 6:14

To remember not to fear because she is perfectly loved. And that nothing can harm her. To know that she has the authority to stomp serpents, to heal the sick, raise the dead, and no evil thing will come near her. To know that evil is powerless when the Children of God are unafraid. And that God has given her the Authority to do such things.

There is no fear in love but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

-1 John 4:18
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. That she has the very abundant life that God has given to her through His Son. 
-1 John 4:17

And when He had called unto Him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
-Matthew 10:1

I want Evelynne to know that even Before she was conceived God knew her and sanctified and anointed  her.

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. -Jeremiah 1:5
She is the Bride of Christ. And she is cherished and crowned with glory and honor.

To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory-Colossians 1:27
 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 
-Psalms 8:5 

And She was created for His Glory to do the Mighty things that God has anointed her  to do. And only she can do! 

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. -Revelation 4:11

Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him. -Isaiah 43:7

And that she can go to Jesus with anything and He will answer her and show her mighty things in His Name.   Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. -Jeremiah 33:3 

I have mentioned before that I believe the most important thing for a woman to know or anyone in general is to know their Identity in Christ! Because once they know that. Nothing will be able to stop them. Not fear, not condemnation, not people, and not even circumstances! When we know our identity in Christ we are dangerously unstoppable! 

I want to teach my daughter these things because I believe it is the most important thing a Born again Christian can know. If they don't know this, they will be stomped on and deceived by what the world thinks they are. 
My desire and dream is that my daughter knows who she is in Christ. That she can stand tall as a believer looking down to no one. 

 To have such authority and boldness  in Christ and allowing Him to work miracles in her life. 

My  prayer is that what people say doesn't move her but instead,  what she says moves other people. 

That she can stand inline at a grocery store and not envy or be discouraged by the half dressed model in a magazine, but instead pray for her and pity her.

 To not be effected by piers, but instead her piers be effected by her. 

I believe God has given Leon and I such responsibility by placing this little love  in our hands. A responsibility we will take most seriously. I can't tell you how blessed I am to be a mama!


  1. Heather this is beautiful. Taking care of a little one is such a responsibility and you have your priorities right. If you can teach her to know her identity in Christ, I think the rest of the parenting responsibilities will come more easily. I especially like the quote "When we know our identity in Christ we are dangerously unstoppable!" Perfectly put. Thanks for the encouragement this morning!

  2. What I'm most grateful for from my childhood was that I had a mom who made teaching me the Word of God and the truth of Scripture a big priority. She didn't take that responsibility lightly, and I know I benefit from that truth!

  3. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this post. The verses, the conclusion, is just what I needed to hear today!

  4. This was beautifully written and so true. It's nice to see someone who is doing all she can to give her daughter the best life possible, through Christ. Kudos to you!

  5. I love this! So true, and exactly how I feel about raising my daughter as well! Keep up the good work mama ;)

  6. I love this! So very sweet!
    I am doing a giveaway today and would love if you would stop by and check it out!

  7. This is truly beautiful! I'm pinning it now because I know that people need to hear your voice! Thank you so much for linking up with us at Love in Motherhood. Yours is a voice to be cherished! Thank you for speaking truth. ~Jenna // A Mama Collective
