A Unique Mother-Daughter Event For Your Church Fast Paced Relevant With Time to Connect For Girls 11-16 (and their moms!)
Moms Are Their Daughters’ Biggest Cheerleaders
But do daughters necessarily feel that?
Starting around age 11, most girls go through a phase where they feel distant from their moms, like their moms just don’t “get” them. Then, as they go through the teenage years, they can go to everyone for advice except for the one person who loves them the most.
This unique event is geared towards pre-teens and teens, giving them opportunities to see, “Hey, my mom went through this, too!”
Throughout the evening, built in sharing time will allow moms to share some of the troubles they went through as teenagers, as moms and daughters laugh together, build rapport, and feel closer again.
This Mom and Her Daughters Have Great Rapport with the Audience!
Available as an event with Sheila and both daughters, or Sheila and either Rebecca or Katie.
What Will the Event Look Like?
Over the course of the two hour event, Sheila and her daughter (or daughters!) will share their own stories, mixed with video, and then give quick “mini-projects” or sharing times when the moms and daughters can answer a question or tell a story themselves.
The focus of the evening is on Moms sharing about their own lives as teens, NOT getting the daughters to divulge secrets.
We’re passionate about helping bridge the communication between mom and daughter. When daughters feel comfortable with their mothers, they will eventually open up. So the aim, then, is to build that comfort level here so that the foundation is there where daughters can become vulnerable to their moms again, in their own time.
There is no pressure for young people to share their secrets.
Instead, with tons of humour and an upbeat environment, moms will be encouraged to tell their daughters things like:
- How did I get along with my mom?
- What was life like with me and my siblings?
- What happened when I got my first bra?
- Who was my first crush–and what happened with him?
- What really embarrassed me when I was a teen?
- What happened when I first met your dad?
Even if moms didn’t have pristine pasts, that’s okay! The night will be about allowing daughters to see, “my mom went through a lot of the same things I do today!”
This family has touched my life so deeply. I have read all of Sheila’s books, been to a Girl Talk, watched Katie’s videos, and follow Rebecca’s blog. I am 30 years old and they all are relevant to my life as a woman, wife, mom, and daughter. Their fearless approach of talking about things that few others want to say keep me captivated and encouraged. They are a healthy model of what I want my family to look like when I’m done raising my little ones! So grateful for the shared wisdom.
Raised by a mother with such strength (and humour) Rebecca and Katie have grown into wonderful young ladies, closely following in Sheila’s footsteps with the same kindness, grace and faith that many of us strive to achieve in our everyday lives.
Sheila and her daughters stand for their beliefs in a real, connecting, open way that challenges me in my own faithful journey walk. Wisdom, witty talks and perseverance. I am appreciative of their books, videos and delivery of messages that are real and heartfelt.
