International Day of the Girl was initially declared by the United Nations in 2011 to celebrate and empower young girls to rise up and fight for equality, safety, and their rights. There is a quote I once shared from a Mathew Henry Commentary that has stuck with me throughout the years. It goes:

She was “not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled on by him, but out of his side to be equal to him, under his arm to be protected and near his heart to be beloved.”

Today, show your love to a sister, friend, neighbor, niece, or any other girl and let her know she’s valuable. Below is a copy of my book, She Was A Girl First, feel free to download and share.
