When a Mom Inspires Her Daughter

Affirming Her Identity and Dreams in Every Stage of Life

During the teen years, a mother-daughter relationship can be challenging. A daughter needs her mom’s support as a confidante and gentle guide—yet at the same time, she yearns for greater independence and wants to be her own person.

How can a mother maintain the right balance on this high-wire tightrope walk? When a Mom Inspires Her Daughter is filled with biblical instruction and personal stories that reveal what works and doesn’t work when it comes to building the mother-daughter relationship. Every mom will find tremendous encouragement as she learns to…

  • know what her daughter needs
  • take an interest in her daughter’s world
  • choose her battles well
  • encourage her daughter to dream
  • affirm her daughter’s womanhood
  • become her daughter’s best friend  

A wonderful resource for moms who want to bring delight and blessing into this most important of relationships!

A Word from the Author

“For years, moms have shared with me their frustrations and heartaches concerning their daughters. They wish they had encouraged their daughters more when they were growing up, or they wonder if it's too late now to recapture the closeness they once had with their little girl. When my own daughter entered her pre-teen years, I got a glimpse of how volatile our relationship could be if I wasn't intentional about appreciating her individuality, recognizing her strengths and weaknesses, and encouraging her in the areas she needed it most. And being intentional paid off! I want to share with you crucial turning points in my journey with my daughter, as well as insights from other moms and daughters to give you a confident hope that it's never too early—or too late—to draw her heart closer to yours and inspire her to be the woman God created her to be."
Cindi McMenamin, author of When a Mom Inspires Her Daughter

Thank you, Cindi, for such a wonderful work—it is a real blessing!”

Write A Review

“Not only is Cindi McMenamin a spiritual and practical encourager of women around the globe, but she is a friend. I am especially thrilled by this latest book aimed at the hearts of moms. Nothing is more important for a mom with girls than teaching them God’s standards and modeling how to follow them…and never has the challenge been so critical. This book is timely and an answer to every mother’s prayers for help with preparing her daughter for life.”
Elizabeth George, author of A Woman After God’s Own Heart

“Drawing on her own considerable experience as a mother and mentor, as well as conducting interviews with women who both mentor and have been mom-mentored, Cindi McMenamin has put together a practical, readable, hands-on manual on relating to your daughter or daughter-in-law. A great gift for a new mommy or longtime mother, this book will also be particularly useful to mothers and daughters whose relationship is thorny or broken.”
Rebekah Binkley Montgomery, author of Faithprints: Touching Your World for Jesus

“Too many mothers back away right when their daughters need—and crave—their involvement and guidance. In When a Mom Inspires Her Daughter, Cindi offers practical encouragement for being intentional in living our irreplaceable roles as mature mentors to our daughters. And she challenges us to recognize that because our girls are most influenced by who we are (and not merely what we say or who we wish we were), living in Christ’s love is our most important—and inspiring—priority.”
Cheri Gregory, mother of an adult daughter, 20+ year veteran of junior high and high school teaching, and coauthor of The Good Girl’s Guide to Breaking Bad Rules

“In your hands is a treasure trove of reflective wisdom, a keepsake journal to capture your heart’s cry and delight, and a compilation of insight for seeking answers as a mother of a daughter. Regardless of how you feel about the women who raised you or your feelings about how you did, are doing, or will do raising your daughter; she reminds us we were chosen over every other woman in this world to be our daughter’s mom.” Sobering, yes, but a gift for certain!”
—Barbara Willett, board member, Network of Evangelical Women in Ministry, Redondo Beach, CA

“This book has stirred me up emotionally, spiritually, and physically—Cindi targets exactly what a daughter needs from her mother and practical ways to achieve it. This is a must for every mother who wants more in her relationship with her daughter and includes powerful, practical, and fun projects to guide you as you seek God’s best in raising a godly woman confident in who she is. Hope and healing are also offered along the way to take us from past hurts to promising tomorrows in our ability to parent our daughters.”
—Lisa Pacheco, Women’s Ministry Director, Calvary Chapel, Oceanside, CA

“Cindi writes openly and honestly from a mother’s heart to a mother’s heart…wherever she is on the mother-daughter journey. Using Scripture and prayer coupled with her own daughter’s frant comments and stories from other mothers and daughters, Cindi gently but pointedly provides tools for every mother to accept the challenge of being a godly role model her daughter can imitate. A high—but achievable and essential—calling.”
—Janet Thompson, Speaker, author of 17 books, including Woman to Woman Mentoring and Praying for Your Prodigal Daughter

“Want helpful insights to connect with your daughter? When a Mom Inspires Her Daughter provides key insights and helpful tips, both spiritually and practically, to enhance the mother-daughter relationship. It’s a must-read for any mom who wants to affirm her daughter’s identity and inspire her dreams. Cindi masterfully connects mothers and daughters with thought-provoking questions and interactive activities, and encourages moms that it’s never too late to foster a deeper relationship with their daughter. As Cindi says, God will empower you with everything you need to influence your daughter to be who God created her to be.”
—Julie Gorman, speaker and founder of FYI (For Your Inspiration)
