When people tell me they're so glad they're a boy mom or they don't know what they'd do with girls, or girls are so much harder than boys, I just kinda give them a confused look. News flash: Raising girls is AMAZING. They're not harder, nor do I just throw up my hands in confusion at them any more than I do my son. Different? Sure. But just like my son, I know exactly how I (hope) to raise them: To be brave, smart, kind - lovers the lost and protectors of the weak. Girls who know how wonderful it is to be female in God's perfect design - girls who most of all love Jesus - and know that the Bible is their source of truth, not the world, not TV, not even their own hearts. . It is an honor to raise girls, just like it is to raise boys. And I thank God that I have the privilege to raise two of them.
