Litfuse Review: Between Us Girls by:Trish Donohue

 Between Us Girls: Walks and Talks for Moms and Daughters
About the Book:
You feel more than mommy guilt. You feel a deep and growing conviction that you must do something to disciple your daughter. But what? How can a busy mom make sure that her daughter learns about the most important things in life: what Jesus did for her on the cross and how to be faithful to him in this broken world?

Author Trish Donohoe has been there, and that’s why she wrote Between Us Girls: Walks and Talks for Moms and Daughters. These twenty-six gospel-driven talks are a fun and easy guide for mothers who want to disciple their daughters but don’t know where to start. In each short chapter, moms and daughters read God’s Word, ask one another questions about their thoughts and experiences, get honest about their struggles with sin, brainstorm ways to live out their faith, and build genuine fellowship into their relationship.

Between Us Girls is more than a devotional; it’s a conversation guide, and the twenty-six “chats” are just the beginning. Ultimately, Donohoe’s book teaches mothers and daughters a new way to communicate and starts them on a wonderful, lifelong journey of getting to know one another better and learning to love their Savior more.

Between Us Girls was written by a busy mom for busy moms, so no prep time is needed! Just schedule some time with your daughter, grab this book, head to your destination of choice, and cherish every moment you share with your girl.

26 gospel-driven talks draw mothers and daughters into meaningful conversations about their lives, our world, and the hope we have in Jesus.
Guides both mothers and daughters to think more deeply about their faith by uncovering God’s good intention for his world, wrestling with how sin has affected everything, lifting their eyes to Jesus, and applying biblical truth to the mess of everyday life.
Forged out of a mother’s experiences with her daughters and written in simple, fun, and gentle language that every young girl can understand and enjoy
Teaches mother and daughter a new way to communicate and provides a springboard for a lifetime of mother-daughter conversations.

My Review:
 Growing up as a girl is getting harder and harder with each passing day. The world is changing rapidly and with each terrible headline it shows. so parents need to slow that pace down especially in their own homes so that we don't lose our children to this disastrous society. Bit by bit if we reel them in we may actually get kids that are untarnished, if we don't give hope. Through God we have hope for our future and theirs. That is why it's a good thing when those around us help parents in this endeavor.

 Trish Donohue, has taken a great book and catapulted this issue, in my opinion. She takes some great conversation starters and turns them into something that can actually change the course of your daughters life. Starters such as Focus, Feelings, Prayers, Friendships, and my personal favorite Hard Times in which she discusses when life takes a turn for the worse. whether it is for only a season or for what seems like an eternity. She aids us in what to do when life hands you a "splinter". great advice and great soul stirring conversation starters.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
