Between Us Girls by Trish Donohue

Between Us Girls emailBetween Us Girls: Walks and Talks for Moms and Daughters 
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:
Oh, I love this book! I can't wait to someday have girls of my own to have deep and meaningful conversations with. This book is one of those books that sparks conversations on feelings, appearance, attitude, change, fear, clothing, protection, etc. I love how this book is like a devotional that is meant between a mother and daughter or could even be used for a girls youth group discussion time where you could pull out one of these topics and bring it to a group of girls to discuss. It is relevant, it is real, but it communicates how girls should have a lifelong relationship with The Lord and I love it! This is a small book, but a complete book that is fresh air. If you've been looking for a book for a tween daughter, or teen daughter and haven't figured out how to navigate some waters, but want to do a 10 minute devotional at night with her, THIS IS IT! I LOVE IT! I give this book 10/5 stars because I think it is fabulous. I wish they had something like this when I was growing up! Thank you to the publisher and author for providing a complimentary copy for my honest review, which I have provided.
