God clearly shows us in His Word that He values the caring and nurturing heart far more than the world does. And you can use a simple yet fun activity to show your daughter from the Bible that God doesn’t look down on her for being nurturing. On the contrary, He truly values it!

Activity Instructions, Part 1:
Lay the characteristic cards face up on a table or on the floor. 7 of the activity cards should state the traits listed in Titus 2:4-5. At least 3 others should list other characteristics. These could be things that the world expects (such as “be successful in your career” or “make lots of money”). Or they could be more subtle things, like ” Hang the poster on the wall or set it on the floor across the room. Now challenge your girls to choose the cards that they believe God thinks are important. They should choose the most important one first. Carry the cards one by one and tape them to the poster in order from most important to least important–according to your girls. Let them choose which they think God values most, down to which He values least.
Discuss the Scripture:
After your girls have arranged the cards they chose on the poster, read Titus 2:4-5 from the Bible together with them:
…admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed. ~Titus 2:4-5 NKJV
Briefly explain the meaning of each item in the list:
- love your husband
- love your children
- be discreet (serious-minded, self-controlled)
- be chaste (pure, modest)
- be a homemaker (watchkeeper of the house, domestically inclined)
- be good (useful, pleasant, joyful, honorable)
- be obedient to your own husband
Now invite your girls to compare their list to God’s list. How does the arrangement they created on the poster line up with the order in God’s Word? Talk about the contrasts. Does God value some things more than she thought? Did they highly rank some things that God doesn’t even care about, according to Titus 2:4-5?
Activity Instructions, Part 2:
Remove the cards from the poster and take them back to the table or floor where you had laid them out initially. Lay out all the cards again. Now, using Titus 2:4-5 as a guide, choose the cards that God says are important to Him. Carry the cards to the poster and tape them up one by one, in order.
Encourage your girls to personally apply Titus 2:4-5.
Your girls may have been surprised by how different their idea was from God’s list in Titus 2:4-5. Even though this activity is simple, hopefully it will help your girls clearly see what God values in a woman. And although your girls are young now, they can begin to develop those characteristics that please God. God designed girls to be nurturing, caring, and encouraging. They shouldn’t feel ashamed about encouraging their brothers, caring for younger siblings, or loving babies. On the contrary, these are things to purposefully develop as God-given and God-pleasing traits. So encourage your girls, now that they know precisely what God finds beautiful and pleasing in a woman, to think about how they can personally develop those characteristics in their lives. They may not have a husband or kids, but they can practice loving her family! And contrary to what the world says, they don’t need to feel ashamed for doing it–because now they know that God values it greatly.

Today we’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg. There are so many other Scriptures that talk about biblical womanhood–Proverbs 31, Ephesians 5, and others. I encourage you to delve into those passages with your girls, too.
And may the Lord bless and encourage you as you seek to “pass the faith along” to your girls!
