Our girls are growing and learning so quickly and working through a lot of emotions (hello, toddler tantrums, and seven-year-old stubbornness!).
I’m a mom of two girls and so I know that we need lots of biblical truth so we can guide our daughters in the right direction, helping them learn to follow Jesus and trust in Him even when they’re young.
Reading God’s Word to them and helping them memorize Bible verses is a wonderful way to do just that.
Here are 41 of my favorite verses for little girls. These Scripture verses are a great reminder of Jesus’ love for our daughters and also teach them about being a child of God.
