Daughters of Decision is a ministry that desires to help daughters of all ages know Christ and grow in their personal relationship with Him. Daughters of Decision focuses on five key decisions for growth and also offers practical resources to help daughters put these decisions into practice.
The Five Decisions
Have a Daily Quiet Time
God desires to have fellowship with us. A Quiet Time helps us to do this. A Quiet Time is being alone with God, reading the Bible and talking to Him in prayer.
Mark 1:35, Mark 6:31b, 1 Corinthians 1:9, 1 John 1:3
Talk to God in Prayer
Jesus tells us to watch and pray. We are also encouraged to pour out our hearts before Him.
Psalm 62:8, Mark 14:38, Ephesians 6:18, Philippians 4:6,7
Study God’s Word
Just as newborn babies need milk to grow physically, so we need the milk of God’s Word to grow spiritually. As we study God’s Word and do what it says, we will grow in Him.
Acts 17:11, Acts 20:32, 2 Timothy 2:15, 1 Peter 2:2
Memorize God’s Word
God tells us to hide His Word in our hearts. This means to memorize His Word. As we memorize His Word, it will help us to obey Him and grow in Him.
Deuteronomy 6:6, Psalm 119:9,11, Matthew 4:4, Colossians 3:16
Obey God’s Word
To grow in Christ we must also decide to obey God’s Word.
The Thomsen family (Kirk, Marian, Melanie, Kristen and Melissa) are thankful for the practical help and encouragement they have received in their spiritual lives and desire to pass on what they have learned, and continue to learn with others. They recognize the tremendous impact the Word of God and prayer has on their lives.

Kirk grew up in a small agricultural community. Farming carried a significant impact on the early days of his life until he finished college and joined a manufacturing company in the field of human resources. An important detour took place in his mid-20’s when he discovered the true “King of Kings.” The adventure that began then still continues today with the world’s greatest wife, Marian and three wonderful daughters. He is a very blessed man!

Marian is thankful to be a child of God, Kirk’s wife and Melanie, Kristen and Melissa’s mother. She has enjoyed teaching elementary school children in Australia, the Philippines and in the USA. When Kirk and Marian got married, they had no idea that God would lead them to homeschool their children but they are extremely grateful that He did! Homeschooling their daughters from infancy through high school provided them with the opportunity to spiritually invest in the lives of their daughters as top priority in their school day. Marian now has a heartfelt desire to come alongside other home school moms and encourage them to do the same.
