Women From Girls

Transitional Education and Consulting Services

A future more precious than diamonds or pearls

Relies on our choice to raise women from girls.

 

In her young twinkling eyes I know I can’t find

Limitations, detachment, or weakness of mind.

When I listen to voices of laughter and hope

I don’t hear a helplessness failing to cope

Through the hugs and the kisses I know I don’t feel

Abuse and neglect, or a heart that can’t heal.

When I give her direction and show her I care

Then I can’t imagine a life of despair

When questioned or challenged, in times of great need,

These sisters will answer, these sisters will lead.

Their words will be steady, their deeds strong and true,

We’ll know who they are through the good that they do.

As they meet each new challenge, extending their reach

We’ll all benefit from the wisdom they teach.

As they join with their brothers these sisters will build

The future we want and the life God has willed.

 

A future more precious than diamonds or pearls

Relies on our choice to raise women from girls.
