Overview
A thoughtful, personal, and affirming discussion of how Christian mothers can influence and prepare their daughters for confident living in today’s culture.
 
This conversational book for Christian mothers of daughters is offered as encouragement to deflect and defend against the contemporary culture that promotes harmful attitudes about the self, the body, the mind, and the soul. Raising Godly Girls acknowledges the cultural expectations of both mothers and daughters, and confronts them with biblical wisdom and Christ’s forgiveness. Chapters cover such topics as self-perception, influence of friends and parents, purity, influence of media, and more.


Praise for Raising Godly Girls
"In Raising Godly Girls, Deb Burma, a talented and captivating author, educates and equips parents and their daughters to embrace the forgiveness of Christ, shares captivating true stories of struggles and challenges she and other moms and daughters face in today’s world, and focuses the readers on the Savior and His Word. The book will encourage, inspire, and motivate you to raise godly girls."
—Kay L. Meyer, president and host of Family Shield Ministries and author of Witnessing—A Lifestyle

"Raising Godly Girls is a welcome and needed book. In this book, you won’t find the perfect and all-sufficient mom trying to raise the perfect and all-sufficient daughter. Instead, Deb addresses the mom in need of valuable biblical, Gospel-centered hints and tips. She draws you in with her warmth, humor, and an honest look at how a mother’s faith-life impacts her daughter. Deb is quick to point the reader to Jesus’ help, forgiveness, and grace! Enjoy reading this gem!"
—Lisa Lessing, Counselor and Retreat Leader

"Raising Godly Girls stands out among parenting books as a resource that moms can begin using at any time - when their girls are toddlers or almost all grown up - and refer back to again and again, as well as encouraging readers to incorporate faith into every aspect of the lives of their 'princesses of the King.' While Deb Burma offers a wide variety of 'real-life' suggestions for facing the 'real-world' problems of today, she always guides us back to the best parenting book—the Bible."
—Shelly Burke, RN

Wonderful resource for moms of girls of any age!

If God has blessed you with the gift of a daughter (or daughters), He has entrusted you with both a huge task and a sometimes overwhelming privilege. In Raising Godly Girls, author Deb Burma comprehensively covers the wide range of issues related to faith and related to “the world”, that raising a daughter involves. Raising Godly Girls stands out among parenting books as a resource that moms can begin using at any time-when their girls are toddlers or almost all grown up-and refer back to again and again. As well as encouraging readers to incorporate faith into every aspect of the lives of their “princesses of the King” Raising Godly Girls directly addresses tricky, sensitive and uncomfortable topics that girls of all ages face today, including the pressure to dress and act sexually, body image and developing good character. Raising Godly Girls also recognizes the vital need for girls to have faith and the Lord infused in every aspect of their lives, through prayer, Bible study, devotions, and worship. While Deb offers a wide variety of “real life” suggestions for facing the “real world” problems of today (she realizes that each family is unique), she always guides us back to the best parenting book—the Bible. Through specific verses and narratives from Scripture, Deb shows us what the Lord desires of us as examples for our girls (and everyone around us) and how He desires them to act—“in the world but not of the world”. For example, Deb shares how devotion time in their own home changed throughout the years as the kids (one princess, Courtney, who was integral in the development of this book, and two princes, her brothers) grew and schedules became busier. Deb also encourages moms who are new Christians, or perhaps have recently renewed their commitment to their faith, that it’s not “too late” to incorporate faith in their kids’ lives. Raising Godly Girls is written in Deb Burma’s unique conversational style, filled with personal stories and anecdotes, and packed with scripture and encouragement on every page. She shares scenarios that all readers can relate to— like the hectic shopping trip with energetic toddlers after which she forgot to drive through the pick-up lane to pick up her groceries. After presenting an issue specific to raising our girls, every chapter wraps up with three sections that show readers how apply the information in that chapter. • Don’t Conform, Be Transformed helps readers apply the truths of that chapter with encouragement to live “in, but not of, the world.” • Word of Grace reassures us that our mistakes and sins, and the sins of our daughters—of long ago or of that very day-are forgiven through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. • Show and Tell provides leads us to look inside ourselves to evaluate our own actions and motivations and gives concrete examples, from Deb and her daughter, Courtney, on whose experiences growing up Deb drew from extensively, for moms to show and tell her daughter the truths of that chapter. Raising Godly Girls is a wonderful resource for moms with girls of any age! Shelly Burke is the Editor and Publisher of the Nebraska Family Times, a monthly regional newspaper with the mission “to inspire, encourage and motivate readers in their Christian walk.” Her own princess of the King, Morgan, is attending college in Colorado. Shelly has used the ideas in Raising Godly Girls with Morgan and also with her two young nieces.
