As a young believer and a young mother one of the scriptures that had much impact on me was 2 Timothy 1:5:
I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well.
~ 2 Timothy 1:5 ESV
Now that I am a grandmother that verse still draws me to be mindful of continuing to nurture not just the faith of my now adult children, but of my grand babies. It is a reminder to teach them God's Word at a young age. The Lord used the influence of Timothy's mother and grandmother in bringing him to a saving faith. Not only a saving faith but they instructed him in the Scriptures (2 Timothy 3:14-17).
