From the LYWB Blog Team: Hey, girls! We’re studying Family: How to Love Yours (and Help Them Like You Back) by Jessie Minassian this summer! We’re tackling chapter seven this week and giving away another copy of the book! If you’d like to grab your own copy and study with us, you can do that right here.
In chapter seven, “Becoming the Best Little Sister,” we learned that sometimes it’s nice to have someone walking ahead of you on the trail of life. Watching someone else “go first” can work in your favor!
I hope you also took time to complete the “Me Quiz II” (on pages 131–136), because the temptation to abandon your own identity to “live up to” an older sibling is real—and God wants you to be the original He intended.
At times you may feel like your only identity is being known as ________________’s little sister, but as you focus on your unique strengths, characteristics, beauty, and accomplishments, you can be proud of who you are and who you’re becoming (p. 137).
Join us in the comments below where we’re discussing this application question: What comparisons do you make between yourself and your older siblings? And are those fair comparisons to make, or should you try to avoid them?
Next up: chapter eight, “The Family Feud.” Keep reading those pages in Family, and we can’t wait to join you again next week!
You know the drill by now, right? Log on to the giveaway widget. Answer the discussion question. Boom—you’re entered to win a copy of Family!
