Pub Date 08 Aug 2017
In Building Circles of Grace, moms and daughters will explore what it means to build and sustain Christ-centered relationships that we develop beyond our relationship with God.
Some of the toughest experiences we encounter as young girls (and moms, too) are a result of the people we choose as friends.
How do you respond with grace to a bully? How do you cope with the loss of a friendship? Can you really make a difference by putting Jesus first when it is not the cool thing to do? Building Circles of Grace invites moms and daughters to discuss all of these questions and more.
“The tween years are often challenging for girls and their moms to navigate. Resources like Building Circles of Grace are a godsend for those of us who want to guide our girls to a deeper faith during these often tumultuous years. This Bible study for moms to do with their daughters is an opportunity to speak wisdom and truth into their hearts during a season when the world is telling them what they lack. Circles of Grace will help moms help their daughters build godly friendships, which is such an important part of adolescence. If you have a tween daughter, you need this Bible study!”
—Teri Lynne Underwood, girl mom cheerleader, founder of Prayers for Girls, author of Praying for Girls: Asking God for the Things They Need Most, and proud mother of a beautiful inside-and-out daughter
“For Christian moms desiring intimate, meaty, and eternal connections with their tween daughters, Building Circles of Grace is a welcomed treasure. Catherine Bird seamlessly meshes timeless biblical truth with contemporary struggles of relationship, helping both generations embrace Christ’s love for us and in us. I so wish a study like this had existed during my tween years; my mom and I would have relished drawing closer together as we also drew closer to the Father.”
—Ava Sturgeon, author of the teen Bible studies A Daughter’s Worth and A Daughter’s Heart
“Moms of young girls need a lot of tools to help their daughters reach their potential. Building Circles of Grace is one of those tools, helping a mom invest in her relationship with her girl and empowering a young girl to build her own best network of positive relationships in her life.”
—Lynn Cowell, speaker with Proverbs 31 Ministries and author of Brave Beauty
“As a mother of adult daughters, I can say that I wish I had this resource available to me when my girls were tweens. It’s biblical, relatable, and an excellent follow-up to the first book in the series. The emphasis on relationships with practical wisdom and insights for navigating friendships in today’s world will meet the real, felt needs of tweens . . . and the moms that love them.”
