Raising Maidens of Virtue

Dear Lord,
let my life be a reflection of Your mercy and goodness. Allow a lovely and gentle spirit to shine forth from me. Make my countenance properly express your holiness. Keep me from attempting to glorify myself and help me to instead glorify You in all that I do, wear, and proclaim. Take my life, Lord--do with it what You will, and make me content and joyful always and in everything. Amen.

~Stacy McDonald, Raising Maidens of Virtue


My sisters, mom and I started reading this book a few days ago for morning devotions. It's really good! We're not even halfway through it, but I would really recommend it for any of you who haven't read it yet! :)

Blessings,
Marissa
