A Few Ideas For Using Your Time Well

time managementI was recently talking to a mom who has a teenage daughter. The mom was curious to know how my sisters and I have used or are using our time to its fullest. She wanted to know what her daughter could do now and post high school to make an eternal impact.

What a great question! How can we as young Christian girls use our time to its fullest to make an eternal impact?

After thinking it over and talking to some other young ladies, I came up with a few ideas.

Volunteer your time to babysit.

By volunteering to babysit for free, you can allow a couple to spend quality time together that they may not have been able to do otherwise.

Volunteer at your local Crisis Pregnancy Center.

If you Google “pro-life centers” with your city attached, you are more than likely going to find a local pro-life pregnancy center. Without these local pregnancy centers and their volunteers, moms who are in crisis situations would have nowhere else to turn to except Planned Parenthood and other businesses like them. If you are eighteen years old or older, you may be old enough to train for counseling in the pregnancy center as well. What a privilege to be a part of sharing truth with women and using your time to save the lives of babies!

Work with your local AWANA program.

AWANA is a program that encourages young kids to memorize Scripture and hide it in their hearts. They are always in need of young ladies to help mentor and lead the cute little girls. Just Google “AWANA” with your city attached, and see if any local churches have a program.

Those are just three ways that you can volunteer your time and energy to make an eternal impact in the lives around you. Don’t just think about getting involved; take the time to research and discover what opportunities are available in your local city. Let us know what you come up with!

After a brief experience in the modeling industry, Bethany’s eyes were opened to how self-absorbed and lost her generation of young women really are. She and her older sister were inspired to start a blog (www.GirlDefined.com) and wrote a book Girl Defined: God’s Radical Design for Beauty, Femininity and Identity. Their passion is to help young women find God’s truth about beauty and womanhood and the freedom that comes from living a radically different life for Christ.
