Beauty and the Pig
~ Goldie Doll ~
This afternoon, the girls cut out all of the fabric pieces for their Goldie doll, so they will begin sewing it next week.
www.Doorposts.com sells this doll kit and Bible study for girls. We’ve been working on the Beauty and the Pig Bible study off and on throughout the fall and winter months this school year, and we have been blessed by it! The girls have learned how to use a Bible index and several other Bible study reference books. We probably wouldn’t have taught them to use Bible reference materials quite so young if it weren’t for this excellent material for daughters and mothers.
My girls really are too old for the Goldie doll to be something that they play with. (It’s one of those reversible dolls that reverses from a kind, modest girl to an immodest, brazen "pig".) Kelsi never played with dolls a day in her life (!), so she definitely wouldn’t play with it. But, they will have this reversible doll (girl to pig) that they can someday use to teach their own daughters (or girls and boys if they are teaching Sunday School or AWANA classes) about the importance of modesty and being a godly girl/woman/boy/ man. So, we are thinking long term with this project, and they’ll keep it stored in their large "keepsakes" box until they will use it some day.
