Girl Talk: Mother-Daughter Conversations on Biblical Womanhood

Redesign

By Carolyn Mahaney, Nicole Mahaney Whitacre

... Show All

God has a purpose for every mother-daughter relationship.

Without vital conversation between mothers and daughters, a godless society will have the loudest voice in girls’ lives. Designed to be read together or separately, this book will stimulate conversation as mothers seek to pass along the legacy of godly womanhood to their daughters. Carolyn Mahaney and her daughter Nicole Whitacre share from personal experience as they explore the joy and freedom that comes from a relationship rooted in God’s unique design for mothers and daughters—pointing the world to the truth of the gospel from one generation to the next.
