Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.
I really miss our Titus 2 Time. Friends from the University of Memphis, Rhodes College, and others from our church fellowship met at Jen’s house. Debbie, Nancy, Jen, Val – these wonderful women came prepared with answers for many of our big questions. How do you get through a dry season with Christ? What kinds of lessons did God teach you about Himself through singleness, in dating? How did you know your husband was someone you should marry? How do you spend your time with the Lord? These are just a few examples. I knew these little sessions were needed at that point. But I’m certain I need it in this season of life. How much I appreciated older and wiser – and willing – women from which to glean. What I wouldn’t give for one! I remember Jen saying that sometimes, when there isn’t a physical mentor to be found, you can always “listen” to women who have taken the time to thoughtfully record with a pen their knowledge and love for God. Suggestions?
