Rebekah: First, let me just thank you, Elizabeth, for asking to interview me. I’m honored that you would even take the time to write out these questions. My prayer is that the Lord would use what I say here to be a great blessing and encouragement to the young ladies who read it.
Rebekah: One of the biggest things the Lord has been teaching me lately is the importance of extending grace to other people. When I first became introduced to the beautiful lifestyle known as stay-at-home daughterhood, I became overly zealous in that I began to look down on other young women who were not stay-at-home daughters or who were not planning to be stay-at-home daughters. In my thinking and in the way I viewed others, I became the “stay-at-home daughterhood police”. I would search the Scriptures and see lovely examples of daughters who lived at home until marriage and would come across passage after passage that revealed the wonderful design the Lord has for unmarried daughters and their lives between graduation and marriage. I would then wonder why so many other Christian girls couldn’t see the clear truths that I could. And instead of extending grace to them like others had done for me before I came to this mindset, I would harbor disdain for them in my heart. So, I would say that one of the biggest things that the Lord has taught me in the past few months is just how much I need to extend grace and love to those Christian daughters who have not yet come to the place where they understand the plan our Lord has for them as unmarried young ladies.
The second main thing that I have been learning is just how deep our Lord’s love for us is. Being loved by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords is far more fulfilling than anything else in the world. Pursuing an ever closer relationship with him is the most worth-while, productive, life-changing mission that anyone could ever go on. It is an absolute delight!
