Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Not only is Cindi McMenamin a spiritual and practical encourager of women around the globe, but she is a friend. I am especially thrilled by this latest book aimed at the hearts of moms. Nothing is more important for a mom with girls than teaching them God's standards and modeling how to follow them...and never has the challenge been so critical. This book is timely and an answer to every mother's prayers for help with preparing her daughter for life."
--Elizabeth George, author of A Woman After God's Own Heart

"Drawing on her own considerable experience as a mother and mentor, as well as conducting interviews with women who both mentor and have been mom-mentored, Cindi McMenamin has put together a practical, readable, hands-on manual on relating to your daughter or daughter-in-law. A great gift for a new mommy or longtime mother, this book will also be particularly useful to mothers and daughters whose relationship is thorny or broken."
--Rebekah Binkley Montgomery, author of Faithprints: Touching Your World for Jesus

"Too many mothers back away right when their daughters need--and crave--their involvement and guidance. In When a Mom Inspires Her Daughter, Cindi offers practical encouragement for being intentional in living our irreplaceable roles as mature mentors to our daughters. And she challenges us to recognize that because our girls are most influenced by who we are (and not merely what we say or who we wish we were), living in Christ's love is our most important--and inspiring--priority."
--Cheri Gregory, mother of an adult daughter, 20+ year veteran of junior high and high school teaching, and coauthor of The Good Girl's Guide to Breaking Bad Rules

"In your hands is a treasure trove of reflective wisdom, a keepsake journal to capture your heart's cry and delight, and a compilation of insight for seeking answers as a mother of a daughter. Regardless of how you feel about the women who raised you or your feelings about how you did, are doing, or will do raising your daughter; she reminds us we were chosen over every other woman in this world to be our daughter's mom." Sobering, yes, but a gift for certain!"
--Barbara Willett, board member, Network of Evangelical Women in Ministry, Redondo Beach, CA

"This book has stirred me up emotionally, spiritually, and physically--Cindi targets exactly what a daughter needs from her mother and practical ways to achieve it. This is a must for every mother who wants more in her relationship with her daughter and includes powerful, practical, and fun projects to guide you as you seek God's best in raising a godly woman confident in who she is. Hope and healing are also offered along the way to take us from past hurts to promising tomorrows in our ability to parent our daughters."
--Lisa Pacheco, Women's Ministry Director, Calvary Chapel, Oceanside, CA

"Cindi writes openly and honestly from a mother's heart to a mother's heart...wherever she is on the mother-daughter journey. Using Scripture and prayer coupled with her own daughter's frant comments and stories from other mothers and daughters, Cindi gently but pointedly provides tools for every mother to accept the challenge of being a godly role model her daughter can imitate. A high--but achievable and essential--calling."
--Janet Thompson, Speaker, author of 17 books, including Woman to Woman Mentoring and Praying for Your Prodigal Daughter

"Want helpful insights to connect with your daughter? When a Mom Inspires Her Daughter provides key insights and helpful tips, both spiritually and practically, to enhance the mother-daughter relationship. It's a must-read for any mom who wants to affirm her daughter's identity and inspire her dreams. Cindi masterfully connects mothers and daughters with thought-provoking questions and interactive activities, and encourages moms that it's never too late to foster a deeper relationship with their daughter. As Cindi says, God will empower you with everything you need to influence your daughter to be who God created her to be."
--Julie Gorman, speaker and founder of FYI (For Your Inspiration)

    I have not yet finished Cindi¿s new book, ¿When A Mom Inspires H

    I have not yet finished Cindi’s new book, “When A Mom Inspires Her Daughter”, and already find it a MUST READ for ALL women, whether or not they have (or plan to have) a daughter. I feel her book is a healing vehicle for those sometimes painful mother-daughter relationships. I also find it a joyful acknowledgment of the healthy ones. I look forward to resume reading each chance I get! Thank you, Cindi, for such a wonderful work, it is a real blessing!

    Reviewed by Robert Rose for Readers' Favorite

    Cindi McMenamin is an excellent writer who is honest about her failures with her daughter, Dana. Cindi also interviewed many other Christian mothers to find what they did well and what they learned from their mistakes. Cindi is the wife of a pastor and she has written many other books that are based on their love and their mutual faith, trust, and love of God. So, throughout the book she uses biblical references to make or reinforce points. She encourages her readers to trust that prayer will help them do what they know are God’s intentions to develop a godly life.

    She details what she learned from raising Dana, as well many other mothers’ personal experiences and successes with their daughters to give the book other POVs. This happened with goals of: careful, interested listening; observing strengths and weakness and helping her deal with them; using mistakes as learning opportunities; appropriate consequences for bad behavior; constantly giving physical and verbal affection; and encouraging her to become her own person, which applies to any parent-child relationship.

    I believe the mother-daughter bond can be the strongest, healthiest, and happiest relationship between any two humans. It is based on genetics, but can be nurtured consciously. Too often it’s not that way and so Cindi McMenamin's book When a Mom Inspires Her Daughter may help many mothers. This is an excellent guide for any mother and daughter to achieve the same relationship Cindi and Dana have.
