I prayed for this child, and the LORD answered by prayer.
He gave me this child. And now I give this child to the LORD.
I Samuel 1:27 EVR
I have three dauthers (and two sons) of my own, and am always looking for enouragement to raise them to follow God. There are many self-help parenting books on the market that give you a list of dos and don’ts. In “She is Yours” Jonahtan and Wynter Pitts turn thier focus to where we should all be focused. Prayer. Broken into three parts, the Pitts give practicle ways to pray for your dauther in different areas of thier life. Their reminder to parents is that our dauthers are a gift from God, and they are God’s daughters. They include prayers at the end of each chapter.
“She is Yours” reminds parents that thier own walk with God (actions, prayer life, decisions) will impact our daughters far more than any list of rules. Our daughters are always watching us. Society says otherwise, but we are thier biggest influence and should be their biggest cheerleader. This book leads parents to pray through thier daughters infancy all the way past praying for their husband when they are grown.
“She is Yours” is thoughtful, God- focused, encouraging and grounded in the truth of our Lord.
