Review

"The Mahaney women's chatty and comfortable approach is deeply biblical and straightforward, connecting with all sorts of relationships, including single moms, stepmoms, adoptive families, and those in either healthy or challenging relationships."
Noël Piper, Author, Treasuring God in Our Traditions, Faithful Women and Their Extraordinary God; Wife, Mother, Grandmother

"This delightful read is filled with warmth, wit, and wisdom-and loads of practical ways to apply the gospel to real issues facing teen girls. . . . I am grateful for this call to mothers to pass the legacy of biblical womanhood to their daughters."
Susan Hunt, former Director of Women's Ministries, PCA; author, Women's Ministry in the Local Church

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!

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 [...] 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! <><

"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!

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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

I'm really enjoying reading this book. I only wish I knew that I should have gotten two, one for me and one for my daughter, so we could literally as well as figuratively hopefully be on the same page.

It provides wonderful insight in helping moms raise their daughters in a Godly, Biblical way and to help daughters appreciate their mom in raising them, molding them to be true Christians, to keep themselves pure, and keep the focus where it belongs.

Having this as a guide really helps when raising a teenage daughter.

I highly recommend this book and suggest getting two so your daughter can be reading along at the same time. I'll be letting my daughter read after me, but I've already been sharing ideas from the book which she listens to and appreciates.

Only have gotten into a few chapters so far. But My daughter and I read this together once a week then discuss the topic and what we think. What an awesome tool to use to talk about womanhood in God's view. Love it! My daughter is almost 11, so some words & topics she doesn't understand and are a little difficult for her, but its been great to talk through them; words like submission.

I feel this is a great book for building a strong and deep relationship with your daughter. We have made this a date night and share our deep concerns and view about each other.
