Raising Daughters Rooted in Grace

Movements start with one voice declaring: It’s time. In a world of confusing messages directed at women, the stakes have never been higher to raise daughters who are confident in their identities, courageous to impact their world, and rooted in grace.

“WOW! THIS BOOK! I am the mom of a daughter and two sons. I find this book just as applicable to moms of boys as it is to moms of girls. Terra‘s depth of clinical knowledge combined with her depth of biblical knowledge creates a powerful book that will bring about your own healing as well as give practical advice in helping our next generation of kids place their identity firmly in God’s mighty hands.

You guys! There is literally quotable wisdom on every page. I pretty much have the entire book highlighted. Just read it for yourself!!”

About the Book

Whether you are a mom of daughters, or a woman investing in the next generation of girls, InCourage is written for you. Touching on the common issues we face as women, such as the comparison game, body image, sexuality, identity, friendships, and more, InCourage reminds us that transformation of our communities and cultures starts with us.

We cannot give to our daughters what we have not received ourselves, and a courageous woman knows she cannot do this journey alone. Weaving together biblical truth and clinical wisdom, this book will inspire, empower, and equip you to be a woman of courage right where you are, while challenging you to invest in the women and girls around you.

In this book we cover topics like:

  • Sexuality
  • Friendship/Comparison
  • Body Image

"This is, by far, the best parenting book I have read!! Mattson writes with authority and grace on characteristics to cultivate in our daughters as well as to grow in ourselves. I loved how she presented the psychology/therapy through a lens of faith. Full of insight and encouragement, I can't wait to read it again. And again!"
