"This must be the aspiration of all mothers and daughters: the successful transfer of the virtues of biblical womanhood."
"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; coauthor, Women's Ministry in the Local Church

The book is written from a Christian viewpoint with humor, sincerity and a wealth of scriptural references. "Girl Talk" also provides numerous sources for "Further Study" at the end of each section. This is not a book for the faint of heart. The discussion questions are very revealing and must be asked and answered with kindness to get the most from them. The questions invite both mother and daughter to be open and honest about their hopes and desires.
I would recommend this book to any mother looking for a way to spend time with her daughters and have some thought provoking discussion on the difficulties in both raising and becoming a biblical woman in today's world.
So refreshing to read someone willing to inform their worldview and view of womanhood/daughters unapologetically from scripture. A much needed resource for Christian mothers, however I'd also recommend it for grandmother's, youth leaders, Sunday school teachers or any woman who finds herself in a Titus 2 role.
In addition to working as a devotional for girls to use on their own, it could be used by moms and daughters together to talk through the scenarios in the readings or even used with small groups for tween girls.
My personal preference at this point with my daughter would probably be to read less made-up stories about girls and dig a little deeper into Scripture, but the book is a good fit for those who want something more topical and perhaps focused on life application and keeping an open dialogue with girls about the problems they face and how the Bible helps us handle them.
