We know that as a mom you do everything you can to teach and protect your daughter.
But then she walks out the door and BAM! She’s faced with:
– mean girls
– social media
– peer pressure
– and so much more!
That’s why we aim to be an outside resource that helps your daughter SEE who she really is and EMPOWERS her to come closer to Christ.
