The relationship girls have with their mothers greatly impacts the women they become, and for busy moms in the thick of the parenting years that reality can seem overwhelming. Author Trish Donohue brings guidance for women who want to disciple their daughters but don’t know where to start in Between Us Girls: Walks and Talks for Moms and Daughters (New Growth Press/June 6, 2016/ISBN: 978-1-942572-77-0/$15.99). 


As a mom to two girls, Donohue knows the kinds of questions women ask themselves when considering their influence on their daughters: Am I being a good example? What are the most critical life lessons and spiritual insights I should be imparting to them? Am I getting through to them? Balancing these concerns with the hectic nature of daily life can feel daunting, which is why Donohue wrote this guide filled with 26 gospel-driven talks, or “walks,” designed for moms and daughters between the ages of 7-14. Each walk covers a topic from feelings and friendships to work and modesty. Much more than a devotional, Donohue describes her book as a cheat sheet, making it much simpler for moms to connect with their daughters on a meaningful level and converse about their lives, the world and the hope they have in Jesus Christ. 


Each chapter of Between Us Girls is divided into four sections: “The Garden,” which is God’s original plan for a particular issue, “The Weeds,” which shows how sin has made a mess of things, “The Hill,” which refers to how Jesus’ work on the cross redeems all things and finally “The Field,” which is where readers apply the principles learned in day-to-day life.
