Reviews and Endorsements
"Young ladies entrenched in our modern society are in a desperate situation. So many have lost the vision for beautiful, rewarding femininity and womanhood. Raising Maidens of Virtue helps restore that vision and guide our girls along the path to godly, joyous maidenhood. In her delightful book, Stacy McDonald has given a helpful hand to mother and daughter alike, offering hope and practical solutions for those of us desiring that wonderful role of women of virtue."
-- Mrs. Beall Phillips (wife of Doug Phillips)
"Godly women are not born, but raised. Stacy McDonald has, in this work, equipped parents to be about the business of raising up rubies, or rather, that which is more precious still: our daughters. She is a faithful guide, for she is a godly example."
-- Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
"In the face of our culture's shameless enticement of young women to view their identity and worth only in terms of their sexuality, Stacy McDonald passionately challenges mothers and daughters together to return to a pure and gracious femininity for the God who made us uniquely for His glory"
-- Mrs. Tracy Klicka (wife of Chris Klicka, Sr. Counsel, HSLDA - Home School Legal Defense Assoc.)
"Raising Maidens of Virtue is a treasure-house full of gems of biblical wisdom. Delivered with Stacy McDonald's unique blend of wit, wisdom, and warmth, her years of experience lend credibility to a book chock-full of biblical advice. This unique mother-daughter relationship builder explores sensitive areas in the realm of princess-rearing such as how to develop inward beauty, spiritual sensitivities, and outward behavior that is both pleasing to God and a witness to others of active grace in the heart. It is easy to see why this book has taken a place of prominence in the lives of thousands of mothers and their daughters, and this revised and expanded edition is even more helpful! I highly recommend this book as a valuable tool for Christian mothers and their daughters."
