Virtue is behavior showing high moral standards. It is more than chastity or the abstention of a pre-marital sexual relationship. It is choosing to be set apart, as Scripture calls it, from the things of this world. Choosing to be unaquainted with evil, not just in our choices of friends or relationships; but in our choices of movies, books, music etc. Virtue is having purity in conduct and intention.
As a mother to many children of both genders I can tell you that it is still desirable and possible to raise virtuous children. The keyword in the sentence is raise, because I can just as assuredly tell you that we are not born to virtue.
Stacy McDonald has written a book, Raising Maidens of Virtue, to aide mothers and daughters on their journey to womanhood. It is published by Grace & Truth Books in a lovely hardcover binding, for ages 8-15. It is more of an intimate conversation than a Bible Study, but the results of guidance are the same. Stacy shares the truth of God’s intention toward modesty, real beauty, guarding the tongue, homemaking, contentment and more, through stories, illustrations, and memory-making projects; with a sensitive heart-to-heart tone. She leads us through the hard questions and the uncomfortable places never straying from Scripture.
I wish I had had this book years ago and I have no doubt I will use it as my younger girls continue to grow. It’s my opinion that every Christian household with daughters would benefit from reading this book. It is a treasure and worth more than the $18.50 that it costs to purchase it.
