Help Wanted: Moms Raising Daughters {Giveaway}

Reading Help Wanted: Moms Raising Daughters, the impression of author Darlene Brock comes through loud and clear. She’s a smart, driven, caring, and uncompromising mama. If only I could claim all of those labels.

Yes, it’s a book about all that goes into parenting girls, but Brock also gives an informative perspective on many issues of our day: the educational system, feminism, media, marriage and more.

Motherhood is a calling. You can give birth and raise kids and never fully say “yes” to all the job truly entails, but Help Wanted: Moms Raising Daughters gives you the want to and the know-how to make the most of the time we are given with our daughters with equal measures of pep talk, personal narrative, and awareness-raising.

What are the roles she challenges us to fill as moms?

  • Coach
  • Creative Counselor
  • Time Manager
  • Media Advisor
  • Academic Advocate
  • Professor of Gender Studies
  • Relationship Counselor
  • Sex Ed Teacher
  • Financial Consultant
  • Bodyguard
  • Communications Specialist
  • In-Home Decorator
  • Military Strategist

Some of these are exactly what you might expect, while others will probably cause you to reevaluate some of your gut reactions to situations. I love books that challenge my thinking and yet still leave room for me to process and reach my own conclusions!

We have one copy of Help Wanted: Moms Raising Daughters to give away. Please leave a comment if you’d like to win. We’ll announce the winner in our May 7 book review giveaway column.

Keep up with Darlene Brock at her blog and learn more about her Grit & Grace Project.

    Hi Darlene, I would love to have a copy of this book. I am raising three daughters, well my oldest is 22, and I have two younger daughters and always welcome advice, comments and tidbits from other mothers. I just feel and
    believe this book would be very beneficial, since now have to play both mom and dad due to the loss of their father back in June 2011. They’re coping better, but I feel I need that little something extra. Lastly, I look on the sunny side of life, in the event I don’t win this wonderful giveaway, I will most definitely purchase the book! Besides May 7th is my fathers birthday, and May 8th is it would be a Birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day type of celebration for me! haha

    I really need this book….my tween is 11 going on 16!! At this point I need all the help and advice I can get, before I’m sent off somewhere!!

  7. Maria K says

    LOL…oh man! What great timing! Even if I don’t win the book, I will definitely go out and purchase this one. A little guidance on helping both my daughter and myself survive? these years would be awesome. She is going to be 10 in June and I feel like we never see eye to eye anymore. Raising a daughter so far hasn’t been exactly like I thought it would be :-)

  8. says

    I think if I don’t win, I will be looking into getting this book anyways. I have 4 girls, youngest is 6, oldest is 16. Life is never dull here, if anything, I’d like to be reassured I’m not alone

  9. Jennifer N says

    I would love to read this book as I am “in the trenches” of raising two daugthers. A blessing and a challenge as I desire them to be girls who love the Lord and serve Him wholly!

  10. Tonya Dean says

    My daughter is 14 and I swear from a different planet! I don’t understand her at all and it drives me nuts.


  11. Tabitha Walker says

    I would love to win this book. I have a daughter and very strong willed child and this would help me to see what good she has in her. Any info about raising a daughter would really help.

  12. Carol Rodriguez says

    I would love to get a copy of this book. I am always feeling ill equipped when it comes to raising my daughter, like I’m not doing the best job that I can. A book like this one would definitely come as a blessing. Thank you.

  13. Tina says

    I was blessed to hear Darlene interviewed on moody radio. What a transparent sister in Christ with wonderful wisdom on raising daughters! She sounds like someone I would love to have as a friend!
