Message to a Young Girl:
When I was your age, someone told me that my sexuality was a rose, and that every time I had sex, a petal of my rose would fall off. Did I want to give my husband a wilted stem?
Let me teach you something. Those who tell you that sex is intimate and sacred... they’re right. But please also know that you are God’s child, not an item to be assigned a value. Your sexuality can never make you worthless.
It is your responsibility to respect and love the part of yourself that creates pleasure and life. Get to know yourself well enough to decide what’s right for your body.
Always honor your boom-shaka, va-va-va-voom, and chicka-chicka-wow-wow, because this world is jam-packed with people who will try to tell you what those things are for. And if you lose your own voice amid the warnings, whining, and admonishments, you’ll lose the most important matter at hand:
Your Creator gave you sexuality because He loves you. It’s a blessing. And it only belongs to you.
Raise the little girls,
Be the first to teach them beauty,
that they may honor
the light in themselves
over the faces in magazines.
Be the first to teach them affection,
that they may seek companionship
without settling for attention.
Be the first to teach them courage,
that they may speak boldly,
without need for aggression.
Be the first to teach them independence,
that they may know themselves
without the influence of others.
Be the first to teach them
Your perfect love,
that they may share their lives,
their talents, and their wisdom
without sacrificing themselves.
Raise inspiring women.
