11 Tips on Raising a Confident Daughter

In a culture where society is so harsh on it’s women I believe it important to raise a confident daughter in Christ.

As I pray for my little princess and for God to help me raise her to know who she is in Christ, beautiful memories come to my mind. Like the day she was born, over 8lbs and a healthy rolly polly baby girl has now turned into a lovely, fun, beautiful daughter. God has blessed me! I can not let shame, fear or guilt get in the way of me encouraging her to be all can be as a child of God.

 

How can I help her know who she is in Christ? I did some scripture searching. Here is what I found and will use in daily prayer and verbal encouragement over my sweet daughters’ life.

 

1. Peace.

She has access to peace that passes ALL understanding because of her relationship with the Prince of Peace. Philippians 4:7

 

2. Strength.

She has ALL the strength she needs to face anything because her strength comes from God. Philippians 4:13

 

3. Alone.

She will never have to feel alone or abandoned. Psalm 34:18

 

4. Relationship with God and Prayer life.

She will understand and have a close relationship with our Savior at an early age and will stay close to God all the days of her life. Not looking at humans and their failures but keeping her eyes on Christ. John 15:7 & Romans 8:37-39

 

5. Redemption.

She is forgiven of her sin. When she falls down, God is always there to pick her up. Ephesians 1:7

 

6. No Fear.

She does not have to be afraid. 2 Timothy 1:7 & Psalm 112:7

 

7. Body.

Her body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit and must be treated as such. 1 Corinthians 6:19

 

8. Mentally.

Depression will not fall upon her. She will set her thoughts on positive things. Philippians 4:8

 

9. Courage.

She doesn’t have to back down. She can and will stand up for what she believes is right, as God leads her.  Deuteronomy 31:6

 

10. Work hard.

She will do everything as if she is doing it for God and His glory. Whether it is for school, career, ministry, being a wife (one day) or a mom (one day). Colossians 3:23

 

11. Love.

She will always have Gods love. She will find her security in His love and not in other people and material things. She never has to feel unloved or unwanted. She will rejoice in her salvation in Christ. John 3:16 & 1 John 4:10

More than Blessed,

    What a heritage of faith you are giving your daughter, Starla (Psalm 16:6)….and consequently arming us as we mother and lead our girls to His throne of grace.
    His Word is always something I pray over my children, remembering that it does not return to Him void.(Is.55:11)
    Blessings,
    Dawn

    Wonderful post! God truly equips us with all the tools and wisdom we need to do His work! And teaching our daughters (and children in general) to look to Him in all things and consult His truth, is the best gift we as mothers can give.

    Starla, this is a great list with some very practical verses that we can use to encourage our daughters. Thank you so much for sharing.

    You are speaking life and truth over your daughter. This is so important and vital to spiritual health – and emotional/mental health. I’m going to have to print these out!

  5. Nanette Moran says:

    It also seems that YOU are living out the WORD in these scriptures. It is a powerful example. God Bless you.

    This was one of the best compliments anyone has ever paid my daughter, imo. My sister-in-law told me a couple of years ago that something she loves about Briana (then about 16 or 17) is that she “knows who she is in Christ”.

    That’s the first time I had ever heard anyone use that phrasing, and I thought it summed up Briana perfectly. Now it’s fun to hear you use that same phrasing.

    Good list! Excellent perspective!
