Her identity–finding her security and strength in God’s love and acceptance
Her heart–pursuing a life of purity and devotion to the Lord
Her mind–committing to growing in wisdom and discernment regardless of her circumstances
Her relationships–developing skills and attitudes to foster healthy relationships
Her purpose–trusting God with her life, gifts, and passions

With simple ideas to nurture your daughter’s faith from toddler through teen, this encouraging book will equip you to pray with more confidence and power.

Praise for Praying for Girls:

“After losing my mother young, I grew up surrounded by boys. And after having two boys of my own, I was straight-up terrified of having a girl. A girl was all-new territory to me. For this mom afraid of messing up her daughter, this book is a lifeline. I might not be able to bubble wrap my girl away from the world, but I sure can wrap her up in fierce prayers and send her out into it bravely. Each prayer, each activity, each new way of seeing my girl with Jesus’ eyes filled me with gratitude and a hearty Amen for this book!”
Lisa-Jo Baker, author of Never Unfriended and Surprised by Motherhood, and community manager at incourage.me

“This book makes me so happy. For years I’ve been asked to recommend a book about praying for girls, and now I finally can! Teri Lynne Underwood is deeply committed to the truth of God’s Word, and she understands how to apply it to godly parenting. This practical and highly usable book will change a generation of future women. As a mom raising two sons who will one day need godly wives, I’m thrilled at that possibility!”
Brooke McGlothlin, co-founder of the MOB Society (for mothers of boys) and author of Praying for Boys: Asking God for the Things They Need Most

Pray About Everything by Paul TautgesThank you for your interest in reviewing Pray About Everything. This blog tour is now full. You can see our current list of available review books here: LINK.

Believers need to learn to pray about everything, but so many unanswered questions hinder our progress.

  • What does it mean to pray in Jesus’ name?
  • How do I pray for my non-Christian friends?
  • When does the Holy Spirit pray for me?

In this book, a seasoned pastor and counselor answers these questions—and many more—by effectively instructing us with biblical principles, examples, and commands. By doing so, he encourages us to develop a life of prayer. Pastors, elders, and small group leaders will also find this book an indispensable help to cultivating an atmosphere of God-dependency in their local church.

Pray About Everything delivers an urgent call for believers to commit themselves to regular and systematic heartfelt prayer as an essential spiritual discipline for the Christian life.

Praise for Pray About Everything:

…one of my favorite books on prayer…
—Mark Dever, 9Marks Ministries

…a valuable contribution to our theology and practice of prayer.
—Jerry Bridges, best-selling author of The Pursuit of Holiness

Use this book as a springboard to stimulate your own ideas on how you as a pastor or church leader can cultivate prayer in your church.
—Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

Prayers for New Brides: Putting on God's Armor After the Wedding Dress Book Cover Prayers for New Brides: Putting on God's Armor After the Wedding Dress

A new wife is seldom aware of the intense spiritual battle threatening her dreams of happily ever after. Often, she enters the marriage without the benefit of great examples, biblical knowledge, and mentors offering godly wisdom. The battle begins and she is unarmed. Can her faith survive? Will her marriage become another divorce statistic? Prayers for New Brides will empower her to protect her heart and marriage. Within these short chapters she will:

  • Learn biblical truths about marriage, the spiritual battle, and prayer
  • Pray in agreement with God's will for her marriage
  • Activate these truths in her life through study, journaling, and intentional conversations with her husband and other wives.

Marriage is God's design. He has a battle plan, the power and the resources to win. When a wife knows who God is and what He can do, she can trust Him to sustain her and her marriage. Her joy will be complete as she allows Him to enable her to do more for her union than she can imagine.
