“…because I am a girl.” What can you do because you’re a girl? What can I do? What can my daughters do?

I agree that saying “like a girl” has become derogatory, and I can’t say that anyone has ever said that exact phrase to me but I have felt those limitations. I don’t think any institution (family, church, school) is free from stereotypes (and the same could be said for boys – some of my brothers have run up against stereotypes).

I hope and pray that my husband and I can successfully help our daughters navigate the bombardment of perceptions, opinions, and ideas they encounter and measure them against who God says they are and who God has called them to be as girls.
