Between Us Girls
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.
My thoughts: This book is excellent! I love that it is set up to get mothers and daughters (or women and girls in general) talking about important issues and ties scripture into the discussions. I love the questions that accompany each walk! While my daughter is still kind of young for this book, I look forward to picking it up again when she is a little older, so we can do it together. For now, it was fun for me to go through and do my answers on the questions. I like that this book will get everyone thinking and stimulate discussion, some deep and some lighthearted.
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
