As I came closer to having “the talks” with my daughter in regards to her purity, her husband and her future, I desired to help her see that purity is something special. That it is a prize she doesn’t want to let go of, one that she holds safe until her wedding day. I knew I wanted it to be something she could see, a daily visible reminder of the very special prize she needs to hold on to.
I found the answer I was looking for in a custom locket. In it I was able to piece together all of the beauty I desired my daughter to understand about her purity, her husband and her future.
I spent a couple hours put together all of the parts of the locket for my daughter and a matching one for myself. Each charm for inside the locket stands for some part of our upcoming talks, her purity and her husband. I believe that by breaking down and explaining all of the beauty in God’s design for purity, marriage and sex that our daughters will have a greater understanding, connection and desire to remain pure until their wedding day.
Below you’ll find the charms I selected for our lockets and the part of the picture they are to represent, including God, her purity, her husband and her future.
God is supposed to be first in our lives, even above our husbands. I picked the cross charm to teach her that God must be first, even above a husband and his love.
God designed her beautifully and unique! Her birthstone charm is a picture of His design…her!
The pearl represents her purity, which is priceless and without spot.
The hope charm is to keep her looking to God and hoping for the day that He brings her husband into her life.
I chose the lock charm to remind her that her heart is to remain locked to men until God brings her husband to her.
I selected the key charm to encourage her that God created one man specifically designed for her, and that he alone can truly unlock her heart.
The wedding ring charm is to serve as remembrance that she is to patiently wait in purity for her husband to place a ring on her finger.
Looking forward to her wedding day, I chose the charm, love, to be added to her locket as the “something new” she wears on the day she becomes a wife.
These beautiful custom lockets came from Origami Owl. I purchased them as part of a party for my dear friend Mandy from Women of Worship, who is preparing for their family’s upcoming adoption.
