Dear Daughter – Pearls of Wisdom to Pass Down Through Generations
As mothers or someone raising a young lady, we have a lot to handle on a daily basis. Along with being a mother, we have our daily routines, the nine-to-five, a business, being a wife, and being a church and community leader. We often lose track of the moments and time when our daughters or children can be communicating in a verbal or nonverbal way that they need their mother, mommy, mom, and/or ma. A strong and healthy mother-daughter relationship is the key in the relationships a young lady will form in her adult years. Once strengthened and made healthy, this positive impact can change generational lines. Join seven mothers as they take a stand from past disappointments of divorce, parent incarceration, spouse abandonment, hurts, and rejection to use as teaching moments for their daughters. Set aside some alone time or time with your daughters to read carefully as these mothers share moments when they had to have the tough conversation in order to help develop women of faith, wisdom, purpose, and leadership.
