Play them to the glory of God. But sometimes you are going to act like a girl and walk like a girl and talk like a girl and smell like a girl and that means you are going to be beautiful. You are going to be attractive. You are going to dress yourself up." You say, "Can I take charge like that as a parent?" Yeah, you can. You are authorized. I just gave you a ...
