Letter regarding the New Zealand Girls for Christ Conference in the North Island in 08
Dear Girls for Christ North Island attendees and families,
This is the final week for booking. Get in quick! There will not be another North Island GFC conference for some time – tentitive booking for Sept 2009. This one is from 21-24 January 2008 in the Auckland area. A registration form is attached.
We have some great speakers and craft activities this year, and I’m sure you will enjoy your time with us! The Chosen Valley camp also has a great outdoor lake, canoes, waterslide, flying fox etc so you can spend time enjoying Gods creation and making new likeminded friends at the same time.
Please contact me as soon as possible as the camp would like our final numbers very soon.
You may register via email and pay online if you so desire.
Thank you and God Bless you as you prayerfully consider coming this year.

Thanks and God Bless you all! ~Looking forward to seeing you all again in March:-)
I am still collecting blogs and websites and details of any ministries you are involved in!
Last week I mentioned that I had noticed that many of you who receive the Issacharian Daughters newsletter are also involved in ministering to or encouraging or exhorting other young women in other ways – such as through a newsletter or a magazine or a website or blog. If that includes you please feel free to send me an email giving me the name of your newsletter or book or website along with a quick paragraph with your name and location and a piece explaining the vision/purpose behind your blog. Lord willing I’ll compile a list and share it with all the other Issacharian Daughters.
More questions for suitors
· How do you feel about the medical system? Would you be willing to trust the Father for healing in a life and death situation?
· What do you think about birthing children at home?
· What do you think about a healthy diet? Would you be willing for your family to spend more money on food and items that would be more natural and healthy for them? Or do you prefer cheap, junky foods?
· What are your thoughts on being self-sufficient? Off the grid?
· If the economy collapsed, would you be able to provide for your family? Could you garden your own food? Kill your own animals?
· What do you think about prayer? Do you want to pray with your wife? With your children?
· What do you think about being filled with the Holy Spirit? About spiritual warfare? Demonic principalities?
· Have you ever dabbled in other religions, such as witchcraft, New Age, etc?
Thanks Hannah for these questions!
Regarding ID071 – Glorifying God by Honouring Parents
Thank you so much for this issue! It was just what I needed to read to push me onward in the upward walk. He who searches our hearts (Rom. 8) knew that! The Master bless you for your sharpening of our lives!

Hello dear sisters in the Master, I have discovered two VERY helpful things for us daughters of the King in our walk toward Him. The first is an audio series called “The Making of a Princess” by Dora Esh. The very helpful topics are on modesty, our attitudes, and our relationships. In the tapes on modesty, there are many different opinions on what is presented. You can be modest and feminine lots of times with lace and pleats, so just weigh everything you hear as always with the Scripture and your father’s desires for you. Overall, this set changed my life! The set is available online for free from: http://www.charityministries.org/msg_detail.a5w?vlast_index=SET115 .
And the second tool is a book entitled Beautiful Girlhood, by Mabel Hale. This encouraging book is a treasure box full of gems of advice for the transition time from girlhood to womanhood. More than 16 girls I know have it and many of them have been helped dramatically by Mrs. Hale’s (the author’s) words of wisdom. In fact, one friend says she has read it over 20 times! Mrs. Hale knows so well what we girls think and go through that it is really a comfort to read her book. Written 100 years ago, Beautiful Girlhood is an enjoyable, easy read with true stories throughout. May it become your friend and a valued guide through the years ahead! You can get it from www.amazon.com .

Submission in Dress
A friend of mine, Lindsay Schultz, a young woman who radiates modesty, femininity and beauty, shares about her journey as she learned about submitting to her father in the area of dress.
