1. What is the vision or mission statement? What is the overriding theme of why we exist? If they are to know who they are then, they must have a good firm foundation.
2. And the vision must be kept before them. Proverbs 29:18 reads, “Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish…” (Amplified).
3. Many matters of the heart and chaotic experiences during this age are fleeting. So, Ecclesiastes 11:10 is a constant reminder which states, “Therefore remove [the lusts that end in] sorrow and vexation from your heart and mind and put away evil from your body, for youth and the dawn of life are vanity [transitory, idle, empty, and devoid of truth]” (Amplified). As young women search for answers to life, they ask themselves, “Who am I?” or “What am I about?” Youth is wasted on the young, because as they go on their pursuit, their lack of knowledge and understanding (wisdom) causes them to make a lot of unnecessary mistakes and time is wasted. Some time those roads lead to tragedy or even death. Thus, a foundation of Jesus needs to be laid early enough to thwart the unnecessary pitfalls of life.
Young women constantly ask themselves, “Who am I?” or “What am I about?” We as older and more experienced women know the roads that we had to travel to answer some of these same questions. As we continue to grow, the Lord unfolds the answers. Nevertheless, when we walk along side young women the task, for them, is not as painstakingly arduous. As we pen the words of our goals and objectives, this mind must guide us. There must be a remembrance of struggles past and a desire to give to or under gird those who now struggle. The caption below will give the ultimate ideal for both groups of women as we seek to establish the hook: What will the mission statement be for the 18-25 year olds that will get them and keep them excited? Additionally, what can the older young women ages 26-39 look forward to after a hard week at work to refresh themselves? What’s the hook?
