CINCINNATI, Ohio —On her national radio program “Raising Godly Girls,” Founder and Executive Director of American Heritage Girls Patti Garibay recently discussed why it is crucial for parents to teach their daughters about the importance of teaching their girls to not try to be perfect, but accept God’s grace.
Garibay stated, “The gospel of Jesus Christ is full of story after story of God’s grace toward broken and flawed people.
“Your girl may be a self-proclaimed ‘perfectionist,’ but perfection isn’t what God is looking for. In Romans, Paul says, ‘But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.’ God desires for your girl to love Him and abide in His word.”
Garibay continued, “In moments of failure or discouragement, remind your girl that she doesn’t carry her burdens alone. Encourage her to offer those things to God through prayer and reading Scripture.
“Christ died so she could live free from a perfection she could never attain on her own and grow in the grace He has for her.”
The “Raising Godly Girls” radio feature and Raising Godly Girls blog shares guidance and biblically based advice on many key topics affecting girls today. It gives parents, educators, and faith community leaders a set of tools and resources to assist in raising girls after God’s own heart. The “Raising Godly Girls Minute” with Patti Garibay airs on 900+ Christian radio stations across America.
