Another Character Quality

Greetings Dear Ones!

Today in the broadcast (designed to listen while you walk, work, putter around the home, or rest), I talked about several things pertaining to the previous video.

I shared today's teacup with you. You can buy things like these  at Home Goods (TJ Maxx, Ross, Marshalls and other places). I like them because they can be put in the dishwasher, unlike some antique teacups. 

I have been for a walk this morning, and, passing by the branches of little apples (they are very sweet tasting), I thought about making pies. It is the thought that counts. For my 15 minutes of reading, a pie book will be fine.

Please enjoy your home as you listen today:

I wish to comment on your subject of respect and earning it. It’s true that giving respect is yours to give. Helping others respect you is also yours to give. For example, my young grandson is in kindergarten this year. He’s small and his father knowing he would likely be picked on by the bigger children has talked with him about respecting others and also instructed him not to let other children mistreat him. My grandson was instructed to inform the teacher or playground monitor if someone was striking him physically. If he did and the bullying continued, then he was given permission from his father to defend himself with all his strength.
The day came as the children were loading the bus to go home, when that same bully began pounding our grandson in the back with his fists. Soon after the third strike, our grandson had had enough and gave the bully a well aimed punch in the nose. Incident over! The bully has become very respectful since then.
Now I wouldn’t suggest punching others, however educating them as you say is quite appropriate, after all, they earned.

I so enjoy your homeschooling segment! Thank you so much Lydia. I was never homeschooled and was not allowed to homeschool my own children. However listening and learning from you, when asked what I would do,I’m able now to offer helpful suggestions to my children for their children.
The best book on character is The Bible. Another good one I’ve heard but haven’t read yet is The Little Book of Virtues by William Bennett. Could you give the names and authors of a few others.

Hello, I would like say thank you for all you do for us. The time you put into your broadcasts is so appreciated. I also would like to let you know how much I enjoy Winsome Womanhood and Fascinating Girl. I have an old version of Fascinating Womanhood and it has taught me so much. It's probably my favorite book outside of the Bible. I didn't grow up as a Christian, so I had a lot to learn once I got married, and I'm still learning 30 years later. I homeschooled my children for many years, and I am happy to now be "homeschooled" by you! Even though I don't comment often, you are a great blessing to me and I always look forward to your videos! God bless you! 💕

Thank you dear friends. If this is useful to you, I might provide the “ lessons” whenever I get the time.

I listened to this talk while I made supper tonight. Thank you for keeping me company! I enjoy not being alone in the kitchen. :)

Lydia, I have only started listening to this video, but I have to stop and comment on something before I forget. I may have said this before, so sorry if I repeat it. My now 22 year old daughter, when she was in the seventh grade, took the Fascinating Girlhood book from our church library and began reading it. I had been reading the Fascinating Womanhood book - for about the third time, so maybe that's why she was interested. She began living the words of that book. I have to tell you - the boys began to notice and flock! She was wise though and didn't pay much attention to them. Thankfully, she had high standards. When we changed schools from public to Christian, at her request because of the immorality and drugs of her old friends, the same thing happened there with the boys flocking to her. Her high standards and sweet femininity without gushy-ness was very attractive. She married one of those boys when she was 21 and we couldn't be happier with her choice. His parents feel the same. Now if I'd just taught her to be a better housekeeper. She's working on that.

What a beautiful story. I’ve always thought the Fascinating Girl would help young women if they would take the teachings to heart.
