Item Description...
Concerned about the contemporary confusion over women's roles, McMinn argues that biblical norms should define what God intends for daughters rather than culturally determined traditions.

Publishers Description
Today's culture offers broadening opportunities for women; yet it still pressures them to fit long-standing stereotypes. McMinn challenges parents, teachers, churches, and civic communities to create a social environment that nurtures strong, confident girls. Combining careful research with personal experience, McMinn takes a thoughtful look at gender differences and patterns limiting women's full participation in society. She discusses what it means to raise strong daughters made in the image of God and covers the various aspects of strength--confidence, interdependence, voice, and self-image.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Practical and Balanced  Aug 23, 2001
Thank God - literally - for Lisa McMinn's book. As my husband and I wrestle with raising our own 14-year-old daughter, we find comfort and guidance through the pages of this balanced, helpful look at bringing up girls. McMinn offers valuable insights about the mixed messages girls receive from their families, their churches, and from contemporary culture, and is vulnerable about her own successes and failures in raising her three daughters. Practical without preachy, this is a book we'll refer to again and again -- and give as a gift to our friends.
Practical insights into raising girls  Sep 9, 2000
Women, created by God in His own image, serve as co-stewards (with men)over God's creation. Historically the church, as well as society as a whole, has placed women in a silent and subservient role, far from God's purpose at creation. How do parents in the 21st century raise up confident and strong daughters who will fulfill their potential in bringing wholeness to a broken world?

Lisa Graham McMinn has written a thoughtful, well-organized and practical book addressing some of the issues women and girls face in today's society. Drawing from her own experience as mother of three daughters and sociology professor at Wheaton College (Wheaton, IL), McMinn outlines ways parents can encourage girls to have confidence, voice, a balanced self-image, and an appropriate perception of themselves as women. In short, McMinn celebrates biblical feminism, urging women and girls to rejoice in their uniqueness as image-bearers of God.

"Being gracious, empowered women is what I hope for my students and my daughters," McMinn writes in her introductory chapter. "To be a non-bitter Christian woman is to feel blessed, after all, to BE a woman ... Christian women who are empowered to interact in the world recognize the strength endowed them from being made in the image of God. Thus they are able to respond confidently to God's call ... seeking to bring peace, justice and mercy to a broken world."

Women of all ages will find their own stories in the pages of McMinn's book. Written not only for parents of adolescent girls, GROWING STRONG DAUGHTERS is important reading for pastors, teachers, youth workers, grandparents, and young men -- anyone whose life touches that of a young woman.
