This is a guest post by my wonderful wife, Hannah. You can read her blog and follow her on Twitter. The older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things—that they 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. While I know some godly women who take this passage seriously, diligently teaching younger women how to live a rich, God-filled life, I know many more Christian ladies who seem to ignore this passage.
Every woman is different and has a different story about how she grew up. But many women have this in common: in order to mature from a girl to a woman, she had to prepare herself for some serious physical, emotional, and intellectual changes. Some of these changes are within your control, while others are biological processes that happen in their own time. Becoming a woman doesn't happen overnight--it might take several years to mature from a girl to a woman--but these years can provide you with valuable life experiences that set the course for your adulthood.
