Editorial Reviews

Review

"I wish Secret Keeper Girl had been available when our daughter was moving through her tweens."
―Dr. James Dobson


"This book is an answer to my prayers…Dannah gives us a realistic picture of what is pulling at the heart strings of our tween daughters…
"Do you need help in raising a self-confident, flourishing, God-loving tween girl? Then I implore you, please read this book!"
―Fern Nichols, founder and president, Moms In Touch International


"Moms today have to be vigilant in every way in order to keep the ‘little' in our girls. Thankfully, Dannah provides guidance for all of us who want our girls to enjoy their childhoods and cherish the memories from this sweet time in their lives."
―Donna VanLiere, New York Times bestselling author of Finding Grace and The Christmas Shoes


"As the dad to five daughters, I know the importance of the ‘little.' This book is a welcomed friend that comes alongside parents to shine God's light on a darkened cultural path."
―Chris Fabry, host of Chris Fabry Live!


"Few concerns are more important or more difficult to define than steering your daughter toward purity. But help is on the way! Dannah Gresh has provided a practical, biblically based resource to navigate the rapids of raising a tween girl. This book is filled with helpful suggestions that are doable for a busy mom like you. To make it even better, this book is fun to read―more like eating dark chocolate than eating broccoli. Enjoy!"
―Dr. Juli Slattery, family psychologist, Focus on the Family; author of No More Headaches: Enjoying Sex and Intimacy in Marriage


"Dannah Gresh has written two new books for moms to use in guiding their precious daughters through the pre-teen and adolescent years, remaining sexually pure and free. These are timely books for moms wishing to guard their daughters from a popular culture obsessed with the female body and sexualization of girls at ever-earlier ages. I intend to give these books to the moms in my practice who have young daughters."
―Tippy Duncan, LMFT, Christian Marital and Family Therapist

Format: Paperback
This isn't a book that just tells you to "be a good mom" without giving any practical advice as to how and why. Six Ways gives fantastic, well-researched information about the tween years and what's going on in a person's brain during those years. She then translates that into why it's critical to focus on helping your daughter form her convictions and beliefs during those years. Suddenly I understood that my daughter's questions about forgiveness, faith and trust were not only normal, but very healthy! I realized that her questions aren't attacks on me as a mom, but they are critical to the foundation of the faith she will walk in the rest of her days. This is one book I'm telling all guardians of tween girls to read.

After reading this book, you will have an understanding of the brain development of tween girls, and just how important it is to form their values on the issues of modesty, boys, sex, etc before they become teenagers. The tween years are the value formation years. This is when values will be set in a girl's brain; values she will act on as a teen. It is vital that we connect with our daughters in order to pass on healthy values. Dannah has included a connection IQ quiz as a tool for mothers to become aware of where their relationship with their daughters stand. The quiz opened my eyes to some ways I can better connect with my daughter and inspired me to take action. In another post, I will list some ideas for mother/daughter dates that I have gleaned from searching the internet.

I love this quote from Dannah: "So the question for you now - in her tweens - is not "Should I talk to her about boys, and sex, and periods, and other stuff that scares me silly?" The question is "How do I talk to her about boys, and sex, and periods, and other stuff that scares me silly?" without robbing her of her innocence?" What a great point Dannah makes! I think that is what many mothers are afraid of: that if we raise these issues with our daughters too early, we will rob them of that girlhood innocence. Well, rest assured, Dannah does a fantastic job of providing you with ideas and words that are gentle, but do the job.

You will learn about the importance of role play even during the tween years. Has your daughter seemed to lose interest in such creative play? Dannah shares three ideas on how to encourage her to play roles in unconventional ways. Such play is directly linked to that value formation that is vital at this time in her life.

Thank God for these wonderful women who have taken the time to help us build positive relationships with our daughters. THis book focuses on that relationship with practical advise and activities to keep our girls from growing up too fast. As a mother, I have always said that I don't want to let my daughters grow up too fast, but how can I stop it it this fast paced society. This book has great answers to that question. It is a MUST READ!

There is a reason that this book is out of stock right now. It's because it is amazing. Thanks for reminding me of ways to keep my 8 and 3 year old little princesses from becoming 23 too fast!Give Your Kids the Keys: Navigating Your Child to a Personal and Sustainable Faith

A very practical book for parents looking for practical solutions. Most would agree that active participation is foundational to succeeding as a parent and this book is full of ways to be involved in the life of your daughter from the earliest ages. It has an admitted and obvious Christian bent, but make no mistake; this book is sound and straightforward, and aligns up-to-date approaches with up-to-date research.

I don't want to belabor the good since there are plenty of positive reviews available and many of them provide enough substantive material to let you know whether this would be a good book for you to pick up.

I do want to make a point that the title was a little misleading for me. "How to raise your daughter for marriage" would be a more appropriate title for the book, since that seems to be its aim. This seems to be the only approach that many Christian authors appear to be able to take on this point and so I don't want to single out Gresh as if she is alone in this matter. I do, however, think she should share the burden of criticism with the masses who perpetuate this "marriage-only" culture. They are characterized by battle-cries that cherry-pick Old Testament verses that talk about the blessings of physical children and a physical marriage while they willingly ignore and neglect many of the New Testament verses that talk about Christ fulfilling the marriage picture, Christ's declaration that his followers are born through spiritual means, and somehow consistently miss the connection between Paul's encouragement to single people to remain sexually pure and to devote themselves to God through a single life.

Dannah Gresh deserves a huge 'thank you' for a book that is simple, accesible, and much needed in a society that hyper-sexualizes young girls.

I can't say enough good things about this book, I've recommended it to all my mom friends. It's an easy read, and the author backs up her messages with scripture, which I love. She provides examples from her own life and gives very helpful advice on how to talk to our little girls. I'm anxious to read the book she just wrote for boys, Six Ways to Keep the Good in Your Boy, as well as 8 Mother/Daughter Dates. I'm also working on getting the Secret Keep Tour to make a stop at our church!
