Reviews - What do customers think about Your Girl: Raising Godly Daughter In Ungodly World?
A must read for mothers with girls. Jul 14, 2006
This book is very informative, deep and truthful. It will help to deal with the reality our kids are facing daily.
Excellent resource for parents Dec 8, 2005
Buy this book along with "Teenvirtue: Real Issues, Real Life...A Teen Girl's Survival Guide "!!! Ms. Courtney gives great advice for bringing up a moral, responsible daughter in a world where tweens and teens are constantly bombarded with messages to be sexy and erotic. Any mom will find her advice both practical and reassuring. The "Teenvirtue" book talks frankly to girls in language that they can understand without being preachy, and reinforces the message that what the media presents as the 'perfect' image of women is anything but. Highly recommend.
much needed book! Sep 28, 2005
I thank Vickie Courtney for writing a book that every mother of a tween or teen girl ought to read. It is full of godly advise on how to stear our daughters through the maze of growing up amid this post-Christian era of easy sex, immorality, and immodesty.
It stresses that our daughter are God's girls, and that we are the caretakers of His Gift while under our care. Many Scriptures are used to back up her points, and much wise advise is given.
I ordered 10 of this book to lend to moms of my girl students!
Thank you, Vicki Courtney!!! Aug 30, 2004
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Vicki Courtney. When I started reading this book, I told my husband that someone has finally written a book on raising godly daughters that is exactly what I would have written if I were a writer (which I'm not). This book is very well written; it's humorous and chocked full of scripture to back up everything discussed in the book. It's easy to read and very straightforward. I want to send this book to everyone I know who has a daughter. I'm so glad to see other moms feel the same way about the media, clothing, appearances, relationship, etc. May this remind Christian parents that their daughter is not their own, but God's, and that we are held to a higher standard than the world's standard. This is a definite read for all moms w/daughters.
The Book We Have Been Waiting For! Jul 29, 2004
Vicki Courtney states very simply and eloquently why things like clothes, friends, tv shows, dating, magazines, etc really do matter, and why we as parents need to realize they matter to God. Vicki's insights are based on her own real-world teenage experiences and her experiences as the mother of a teen. This book is the best parental resource on the subject - bar none. Chapters such as Sugar and Spice and Not so Nice are an example of her wit, but her words are full of practical, everyday wisdom based on the Bible. This is not some pie in the sky how-to-raise-a-godly-daughter book. It is a sound, real account of how we need to enhance our Christian influence on our daughters specifically, and girls in general. Do not wait until you are in a battle to put on your armour...no matter the age of your daughter or some other girl in your life, it is not too early to read this life-changing book.
I have purchased multiple copies of this book thru this site.com, Lifeway, etc because I feel so strongly that people need to know what this author has written. I would highly recommend using this in a Bible study group.
