Here is my five minutes written about my teen daughter and my desire to be her biggest cheerleader. Moms, we love cheering on our children.
Cheering Her On
She shyly stood on the outer circle of the girls talking.
I could see she wanted to be a part of them.
She wanted to succeed, make friends, be in the in crowd. Her heart ache and breathing sounded surreal; she couldn’t break through.
On the softball field, she held back, afraid to fail. Her holding back clipped her dreams. Kept her from excelling.
As a mom, I wanted to yell, “You got this. Believe, baby girl. You have a Savior on your side who wants to help.” I remained silent not wanting to draw attention to her fear.
I could only cheer in my mind. She couldn’t hear my cheer. I tried to broadcast it on the waves of love.
Moms cheer your daughters.
Moms, we have a sacred duty. Our children our gift from God.
It seems they grow up so quick. Daughters go from sweet, happy, full-of-life, little girls who giggle, play, and live life without worry or care.
Then they enter those tween and teen years where they worry about friends and popularity. Instead of giggles, they stare in the mirror feeling not pretty enough and even ugly and unloveable.
I want to cheer my daughter on so she knows she is a princess of the King, loved cherished, and valued
How do I accomplish my role of cheerleader at the same time molding and striving to ensure she grows up to love the Lord and put Him first.
Prayer tops the list of things I need to focus upon.
Are you a mom of a tween or teen? What do tween boys worry about? Do they face the same peer pressures to fit in.
How do we keep our children safe from bad choices and harm?
Cheerleading them on, praying, and interceding for them. Declaring that they belong to Christ.
