Overview

Bestselling author, speaker, and founder of the Secret Keeper Girl conferences, Dannah Gresh shares with moms the secret to helping today’s girls grow up confident, grace-filled, and strong in their faith.

Studies show that the foundation for an emotionally healthy teen girl is built between the ages of 8-12 and that a good relationship with mom is one of the most important factors. So when the world wants girls to grow up too fast, how does a mother help her young daughter navigate the stormy waters of boy-craziness, modesty and body image, media, Internet safety, and more? With a warm, transparent style, Dannah Gresh shares six ways a mom can help protect and guide her daughter, including:

  • help her celebrate her body in a healthy way
  • unbrand her when the world tries to buy and sell her
  • unplug her from a plugged-in world
  • dream with her about her prince, and more

This wonderful resource also provides moms a Connection IQ Inventory to test their mom- daughter relationship, creative and fun activities to do together, and Scriptures for the mom to pray for her daughter.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“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

“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

“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!

This book lays it all out. I am a mother who knew alot for her age, however i was good. I judged my sister-in law about sheltering her children. After having mine almost 10yrs since i now know and am doing the same. This book gives cleaver ideas in keeping our girls young.

Loved, loved this book! I have tried several written in similar subject, this is the best. It is straight forward and very easy to read and remember. It is time for the first of many grownup talks with my tween, this will be a huge help. Love Dannah Gresh and Secret Keeper Girls.
