Super Duper Book For Mothers and Teen Daughters Jul 31, 2008
Super book. My three daughters and I are going through this book together and it's opened up GREAT conversation, helped our relationships, reminded us about God's purpose for our relationship, assured us that He's put us together (and we have 3 adoptions among our five children :^))....Most importantly this book is pointing us to the sure hope that is found in Christ Jesus and His Word. Carolyn's wisdom as a mother of three daughters herself has pointed me in the right direction so many times when I could have gone down the wrong road in my role as Mom. We all love it and my girls say it is the BEST thing we have ever done together. Be prepared to grow and change. :^) Thank you, Mahaney ladies! Anna Thorburn Claremont, NH
Uplifting Primer on Biblical Womanhood Sep 30, 2007
I'm giving this book four stars not for its original content, but for its faithfulness to good biblical principles and doctrine. It is an excellent introductory primer on biblical womanhood, especially for mothers and daughters. Because of its broad span of topics, the book isn't able to go in-depth about some of the issues I'm most interested in. It keeps everything pretty basic. But it is unfailingly uplifting, wholesome, and helpful, especially for teenage girls and their mothers, or for those who are just getting started in learning about what biblical womanhood entails.
Time for connecting in a disconnected world Aug 1, 2007
"Girl Talk" is a gem. I have a 16 year old daughter who was not at all interested in doing a "book study" with her old mom over the summer, but has opened up and blossomed as we have explored the biblically-based truths in this book. It's so great to hear from someone else what I have believed all along!
Highly recommended book Jul 23, 2007
As a mother of four daughters and two sons, I've read many, many books concerning growing godly children. Probably too many! Our three oldest are daughters now entering their late teens and early 20's. I must say that this is THE BEST book on the market, which is appropriately subtitled "Mother-Daughter Conversations on Biblical Womanhood". It is practical and applicable to young women in today's world. Carolyn Mahaney and her daughter Nicole have written a masterpiece to equip mom's and daughters to develop the very best relationship possible while at the same time, giving godly counsel and menoring. There are many, many favorites in the book, but I will mention the chapters "A Daughter's Honor" and "A Daughter's Obedience" as well as "Taking God to the Gap"! The Mahaney family have lived their talk and have the fruit to show for it. If you are interested in a CD message to complement this book for women ~ young and old, log onto www.sovereigngraceministries.org and order "The Soul of Modesty". This book is a must for every home library in America! Especially applicable to homeschoolers, Christians and those mother's who want to have the best possible relationship with their daughters. Next to the Bible, this is the best book I've read on parenting daughters. No kidding! <><
Fun, appealing, and truthful May 12, 2005
Right from the introduction, I could tell that "Girl Talk" was going to be one of those books that I was going to look for every opportunity to pick up and read. The candid and humorous way that it is written made it appealing. And I found the way that they presented biblical truths about womanhood and mother-daughter relationships to be applicable, encouraging, and at times personally convicting. I also appreciated the way that they kept the gospel as central theme. I thank God for a refreshing book that I'm sure will benefit many women!
