Moms, Daughters and Periods

It’s that moment all women remember. For some of us, it was the panic of thinking we were dying at the first sign of blood. For others, it started horrifically at the wrong time; like a pool party with your cute new suit. Maybe your mom said something to you like “welcome to the curse honey”. Maybe you read in a book that women are indeed cursed (thanks to Eve). When bloating, PMS and cramps set in, you might have even started to believe that too. But the reality is, that God designed our bodies the way He did. He called us “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Our bodies are specially designed. Now like anyone, there are days I don’t feel like this. We’re constantly being bombarded with extreme messages from the feminist movement, telling us that everything about our bodies is wrong. Some days it’s harder than others

Periods gone right: why you don’t want to miss the God-factor

I was in a dilemma. I was getting my hair done, and my stylist shared how girl’s on average start their periods two years younger than their mothers did. I was shocked, whipped my head around and…..went home with a completely different hair cut than I had planned. My oldest daughter was 8 at the time. If I started my period at 11, that meant she could start in a year. I couldn’t imagine breaking into my sweet, innocent 8 year olds world, and giving her the adult details on body changes, periods, and babies. I remember being completely overwhelmed when I learned all the ‘facts of life’, and I wasn’t about to do the same to my baby. After some thought and prayer, I came to the conclusion maybe I should just talk to her about body changes and starting her period, and leave out some significant details about

Periods and sex: how to tell your daughter (without her running in terror)

Have you ever noticed that normally the conversation “sweetheart, let me tell you what a period is” goes hand in hand with the “sweetheart, this is how (gulp), um, babies are made”? About the time I learned girls start their periods two years earlier than their moms did (on average), I was convinced my 8 year old daughter needed to know what was ahead as her body developed. I wasn’t convinced however, of her needing to know all the details about sex along with the information on her body changes. Oh sure, I wanted to give her some information – just not all of it (CLICK HERE to find out what “some information” can look like for an 8 year-old).  When I sat down with my girlfriends to write the books we couldn’t find, The Beautifully Made Series for moms and daughters (ages 8+), some topics discussed were how early

Talking to Your Daughter About Starting Her Period

How do I talk to my daughter about starting her period? and when do I start that conversation? On average, girls start their periods two years younger than their mothers did – and their friends are talking about it even before that! Mom, you want to be the one to share about this transition with your daughter. For this reason, we recommend starting a conversation with your daughter as young as 8 (especially if you suspect your daughter might be an early bloomer). If you go without breathing a word up until your daughter is 12, she’ll be so close to starting she may have already gone to other sources to find out what in the world is going on with her body. One of the easiest things you can do is grab a copy of the Beautifully Made Series. It’s short, positive, Biblical, mom/daughter and doesn’t talk about sex. Book
