the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God
is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”

to this world?
Collect some special books, pictures,
or other mementoes that will remind you of your commitment to the
Lord. Place them where you can see them to be encouraged in your
ambition to be the mother God designed you to be.
