Raising Godly Girls
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.

—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."
