Blessed to be Older
Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, (Titus 2:3–4).
“I want to be like you when I grow up!” I was in my early thirties at the time, and Louise was my grandmother’s age. She had already lost two of her children, one in infancy and one in early adulthood. I knew her personally when she lost the third of her five children.
Yet, despite her losses, Louise was faithful in prayer, Bible study, and service to her Lord. Now that I am an “older woman,” I pray that younger women will find me to be that faithful.
Mentoring between women of all ages does not need to be formal. Wonderful ideas for casual mentoring can be found at lwml.org. Type either “older women” or “younger women” in the search bar for ideas on how to reach out to women in your church. Building relationships with them is the first step!
A very blessed “older” woman,
