As soon as we knew we were going to do this podcast, we called our friend Sissy Goff. We have both read and re-read her book Raising Girls. On this episode, we talk about:
- What is normal for our girls?
- What’s a phase at various ages?
- How can we help our girls with anxiety?
My dear children, let’s not just talk about love; let’s practice real love. This is the only way we’ll know we’re living truly, living in God’s reality. It’s also the way to shut down debilitating self-criticism, even when there is something to it. For God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves. I John 3:18-20
