You feel more than mommy guilt.
You feel a deep and growing conviction that you must do something to disciple your daughter. But what? How can a busy mom make sure that her daughter learns about the most important things in life: what Jesus did for her on the cross and how to be faithful to him in this broken world?
Author Trish Donohue has been there, and that’s why she wrote Between Us Girls: Walks and Talks for Moms and Daughters. These twenty-six gospel-driven talks are a fun and easy guide for mothers who want to disciple their daughters but don’t know where to start. In each short chapter, moms and daughters read God’s Word, ask one another questions about their thoughts and experiences, get honest about their struggles with sin, brainstorm ways to live out their faith, and build genuine fellowship into their relationship.
Between Us Girls is more than a devotional; it’s a conversation guide, and the twenty-six “chats” are just the beginning. Ultimately, Donohue’s book teaches mothers and daughters a new way to communicate and starts them on a wonderful, lifelong journey of getting to know one another better and learning to love their Savior more.
Between Us Girls was written by a busy mom for busy moms, so no prep time is needed! Just schedule some time with your daughter, grab this book, head to your destination of choice, and cherish every moment you share with your girl.
I was so excited to get my hands on a copy of this book! Though I am a mom of a boy, I get lots of opportunities to minister to pre-teen and teen girls in my church and community and thought that this would be a great resource for me. I was right!
I love that this book is divided up into 26 “Walks” that guides readers through Scripture and opens the door for conversations that might not otherwise take place. It addresses topics like friends, conversation, appearance, role models and so much more! I love the discussion starter questions, these are such a great way to get to know your teen in a meaningful way that’s also fun.
I love that this book is super flexible, you can complete the conversations weekly, monthly, whatever works best for you and your girl.
As a mom, I know that sometimes we wonder if we’re doing a good job. Are we equipping our children for the things that lie ahead? Are we having those meaningful conversations that are so necessary? Don’t fret mom, get your hands on a copy of this book and let it be the guide that can help you along the way.
