  • Rone
    This Proverb has so much to offer young women and men and these are the things that were ttaught once upon a time in church by the older women to the young womten. No one seems to have the love and show csre for tge young generation. This is the type of teaching that is missing from the church today. I was once the type of proverb wife and was physicalyl abused, I took my sons away from that.
