Enjoy an excerpt from the e-book, a letter from American Heritage Girls Founder & Executive Director and host of the Raising Godly Girls Minute, Patti Garibay:
We live in the age of “WarTok”. Today, common citizens are seeing war waged in real-time through first-hand, live footage on social media. To say that today’s landscape of global conflict and war is scary puts it mildly. For girls witnessing violent unrest and gruesome accounts in Syria, Ukraine, Israel, and more, it’s terrifying. Our girls can become paralyzed by their
fear of conflict, and as parents, we can become paralyzed in our own fear of guiding girls toward peace.
As Christians we are told over 500 times in the Bible not to fear. That is a fear warning for virtually every day of the year and
then some. The Lord warns us that fear that results in worry is not from Him, it is from the adversary. He knows that fear can keep His followers from fulfilling the destiny that He has designed for us, and so He warns us in His precious Word. The apostle Paul spoke about fear regularly. He warned the people of Philippi: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends
all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7, NIV).
Yes, fear is part of the human condition, but as part of the Body of Christ we are called to faith over fear. We are called to know beyond a shadow of a doubt, that God will never leave us or forsake us—even in the midst of global conflict and war. I pray you find this guide helpful as you navigate conversations about conflict and war with your girl, and that the action steps offered throughout these pages would bring a spirit of peace into your home.
My hopeful cry at this time of distress is to remember that we serve a Sovereign God who is the Creator of the earth, the Prince of Peace, the Alpha and the Omega, and the Lord that provides (Jehovah Jireh). Would you join me in praying for God’s peace to rain down on our world?
In the Peace of Christ,
Founder & Executive Director of American Heritage Girls
Host of the Raising Godly Girls Minute
