I've decided that before doing any further studies on marriage/motherhood I was going to firstly study to a deeper level of who I am as a Daughter in Christ. Because I don't know about you but I'll be the first to admit that I can't do this wife or mama thing without His identity in me because without Jesus I'm too selfish and too foolish.

These are the three scriptures that I've been studying this week about being a child of The Most High God.
"And I will be a Father to you, and you will be My Sons and Daughters, Says The Lord Almighty."

We are no longer Fatherless, we can no longer say we're not daddy's girls and we are free to say we have the best Papa of all time.. Because it's true!
