We, Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin, believe that today’s unmarried daughters have the potential to change history.
In this new website, we would like to present a brave new vision for daughterhood. In light of the two views of womanhood subduing young Christian women — womanhood dedicated to useless ambition, and womanhood dedicated to useless langour — both leading girls to squander their youth — we would like to recall to daughters’ minds one of the defining aspects of biblical womanhood: useful womanhood.
The purpose of this site is to condone practical, purposeful, productive, dominion-oriented femininity.
Young ladies need to understand the significance of these years before marriage, because this unique season of life is a special gift from God.
You have but one lifetime to spend in our Lord’s service. How you spend these years of your life will touch the course of history and change it forever. We hope this site will give practical advice on how to be good stewards of these very important years.
So Much More was not a survival guide, and this site is not a service to provide survival tips to teenage girls. Visionary Daughters.com is dedicated to helping young unmarried women understand how they can wage war with the world and win.
We want to provide resources that will encourage and equip young women to do God’s work God’s way; in particular, to become greater blessings to their families, more effective arrows in the hands of their fathers, and better ambassadors for Christ.
We would like our site to be a treasure trove of fascinating, informative, thoroughly useful articles from girls all over the world. In this vein, we would like to welcome you all to contribute to our site. We will consider for acceptance:
Stories of how you applied something you learned about righteous womanhood, the effect it had on your family and those around you, and the blessings you are now receiving.
Book and film reviews
If you have discovered a very valuable resource — be it a book, tape, DVD, on-line course, class, or anything in that vein — please let us know about it, what makes it helpful, and how you have benefited from it.
What we are primarily looking for is articles about the practical concerns of righteous daughterhood, such as education, business, ministry, higher homemaking, family relationships, character lessons we can learn from women in history, explicitly biblical commentary on current events, and anything else which could prove helpful in equipping young women for the spiritual battle taking place.
Below are listed some random examples the kind of articles we would love to have on Visionary Daughters.

We also ask for wisdom from older women. We younger women could really benefit from the things you older and wiser ladies could teach us. We will be happy to post articles from men as well!
Please understand that we will not be able to post every article we receive.
Please send all content you would like to submit to damsels AT visionarydaughters DOT com . We would also be delighted to have your questions and comments regarding So Much More and Visionary Daughters.

For Christ’s Crown and Covenant,
