Often times when we first become mothers, we look for the instruction manual. I wish that I had found this particular title much sooner in my journey as a mom. Elizabeth George does an excellent job of encouraging and spurring me on as a mother. This book is specifically about daughters and therefore includes insight into the beautiful relationship between a mother and her daughter.
There are several different examples of the way that we can view our lives, insuring that there will be at least o

Raising a Daughter after God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George is a must read for any mother concerned about her daughter's spiritual life. George, who is well-known for her devotionals for women, including A Woman after God's Own Heart, uses her own experience as the mother of two daughters to help moms trying to get it right. She first encourages women to start with their own relationship with God by reading the Bible regularly, memorizing Scripture and starting a prayer journal specifically for ...more

I originally picked up this book because of the title (and because I have read other good books by the author). I had realized that I have read many more books about raising boys then raising girls so I thought this would be a good start in balancing that out. On that aspect I was actually rather disappointed. There was only a couple chapters that was directed mainly toward raising daughters and though I did enjoy them I think a more appropriate title would have been "Raising a Child After God's ...more
I enjoyed this book very much. It didn't give advice or information that was a surprise but it gave many reminders of how I should be responding and encouraging my children. Most of the advice can be transferred to sons as well as daughters but girls definitely look up and copy mom's example more. I liked how the chapters were broken down to the various "tasks" of a mom. some of them I hadn't really considered before (cheerleader, social secretary, shepherd).
As usual Elizabeth George offers many
Great book for moms with common sense, Christian values. My girls are still young but I wish I would have read this when they were little.
It would be easy to read this and become overwhelmed and discouraged about how you fall short BUT Elizabeth George has the gift of encouragement and I came away inspired, uplifted and challenged, knowing that with Gods strength I can be the mum He wants me to be. Children are truly a gift from God and with the privilege comes responsibility - and God equips us for the task and gives us joy as we do it! This was written with daughters in mind but a lot can be applied to bringing up sons too.
I would give this 3.5 stars . . . I saw this book in our library and picked it up: and was pleasantly surprised. The author is not LDS and so there are of course some doctrinal differences, and a few things I didn't agree with, but the overall message is great counsel for anyone who believes in God, and is trying to raise her daughter (and sons) accordingly. I came away encouraged and inspired to do and be better - and with several solid goals to work on for myself and my children.
This book has practical and biblical encouragement for Moms who want to lead their daughters as Christ-followers. Even if you are already working hard at this you are sure to glean a few new nuggets of wisdom gold - I know I did! Elizabeth George and her husband Jim have many books under their belts and I am quickly finding them to be wonderful mentors from afar. Her husband was in leadership with John Macarthur, an incredible Bible expositor.
This book is a must read for every mother out there who has a daughter! It is great! It gives you so many Christian methods for raising your daughter, but more importantly how to teach her about God and how to live a Godly life!!!

I'm stilling this book. It's pretty basic. Meaning, it's good for a young mother in the faith. If you know a mother who's a new believer, this would be a good book for her.
came from an uber specific background. i was able to glean some reminders and insights though.
