Courtship in this day and age?

Probably much more than you might think. Growing in Grace has some wonderful information regarding courtship. So does Mom of 9's Place. There are several great sharings on the topic of courtship.

Restoring Courtship

By definition, 'restoring' means: bring back into existence, use, or the like; reestablish: to restore order. bring back to a former, original, or normal condition, as a building, statue, or painting. bring back to a state of health, soundness, or vigor. put back to a former place, or to a former position, rank, etc.: to restore the king to his throne. give back; make return or restitution of (anything taken away or lost).

We feel that old fashioned Christian courtship has been lost and we have a desire to 'restore' courtship. My husband, Brother Scott, attended a men's leadership seminar where this topic was taught in great detail.

Courtship by definition means:

Obsolete. courtly behavior; courtesy; gallantry.


1.dashing courage; heroic bravery; noble-minded behavior.
2.gallant or courtly attention to women.
3.a gallant act, action, or speech.

As a young lady, your first and foremost relationship is with the Lord Jesus. Your first earthly relationship is with your father. The manner in which we place importance, respect, and honor on our relationships with the Lord and our fathers will be the example of what kind of wife you will become. A wise young man will know this and recognize in you qualities that are becoming of a virtuous woman.

Our desire is not to promote betrothal or 'dating' as our world defines it, but rather re-establish the parents role in assisting and guiding their daughters in developing a strong relationship with their Lord, and earthly father, in their lives and in regards to preparing for a Biblical marriage.

We have a desire to spread the word to the world today, that we are in fact 'Restoring Courtship'. Below on our side bar, you'll see a tag to identify yourself with, as a young woman who is striving to restore courtship as a godly heritage for the family you will one day have. Mothers, you may use this tag as well to share with your friends and loved ones that this is, in fact, a principle of great importance.

We will be adding new information and devotions in regards to 'Restoring Courtship' in the upcoming months. You can read all Restoring Courtship Articles Here

I would love to know what your thoughts are on betrothal....

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
