Publisher's Summary

There is a role unique to women that we abandon easily. We live near each other, but not with each other - and not for each other. We don't want to intrude or judge, and maybe, we don't want to see each other truly succeed. And the world is happy with this unhappy state for women - one that pushes us to conform to a pattern of distrust, disengagement, and competition. It's no wonder we've lost ourselves and our way.

In her most personal, powerful book yet, New York Times best-selling author Lisa Bevere offers a catalytic, transformative vision for women of a different way to live - one that embraces the presence of godmothers - the older, wiser women you can go to and learn from, the strong women who partner with us through life. And everyone needs one! Drawing from her own life, biblical women, and the world of fairy tales, Lisa will show you how to transform what you have into what God wants you to have, push you forward during seasons of doubt, and love you enough to speak truth about God's larger, expansive view of your life. Lisa's candid, compassionate words are your best first step to living as a daughter of God, surrounded by strong relationships and confidence in your calling.

Not the greatest book I've read.

Was hard to hold my attention. Not really great for people without children. A lot of stuff related to what mothers go through.

A wonderful call to the younger women and to those a few steps ahead.

I love that Lisa put this in print. As a woman with grown children and a couple of grandchildren, I identify so much with her. This is my life’s calling. Thank you for the encouragement and challenge to spur me on in the journey. From one southern grandmother to her Sicilian sister, thank you. I enjoyed your book very much.

Must Read!

Wow, Lisa. You put so eloquently into words what my heart has longed for. There were so many parts of this book that I related to down to specific details. Thank you for being obedient in what the Lord has called you to! Thank you for this book!

Excellent!!

Lisa shares her heart from her own life lessons learned. She is very transparent about her own life; leaving her readers a very good example to follow. Every chapter has treasures to apply to our own life experiences. Definitely recommend.

A very uncomfortable listening

I am blessed by Lisa's sharing and counsel through her stories. However, it was most uncomfortable listening to her because she emphasised almost every single word she read, and the reading was extremely jerky as a result of it. If only she had read like she was speaking naturally to her audience, it would have been much easier to listen to her. I just wanted to quickly finish the book so I didn't have to listen to her unnatural reading anymore.

You had me at hello!

The first two words of this book are “dear Goddaughter”. I had to pause the playback because I welled up with tears immediately. I knew this book was going to speak into an area of my life that I had been waiting for the Lord to help me with; the lost connection of mother and daughter. But I didn’t know it was going to be read, or spoken over me by a Godmother herself... the first 2 words should tell you all you need to know about the heart and intention of this book.

Not only do you learn, laugh and lean into so much of this book, it is a gift just to hear it, to hear the passion in Lisa’s words as earnestly seeks to encourage and empower is a extra blessing to my heart.

I listen to audio books as home-educating mum of 4 as it is easier to finish a book when your hands are full. But now I see that listening to this book is 100 times better of an experience than reading it. There are power in her words!

Thank you so much Ms Bevere!
