Publisher's Description

Raising Daughters Who Refuse to Settle

In a culture that emphasizes finding the right pair of jeans over waiting for the right man, there is no time to sit back and hope everything just pans out. Mom, you are your daughter’s greatest influence, mentor, and relationship coach. It is time to take action!

The most important decision of your daughter’s life is who will be her Master; the second is who will be her “mister.” You play a vital role in preparing her to make this choice. Bestselling author, Jackie Kendall, opens her heart and candidly shares four decades’ worth of experience with mothers who are raising daughters to navigate the challenges of relationships.

These principles help you effectively guide your daughter to:
• Maintain high relationship standards
• Guard her mind from false relationship images
• Teach her the value of waiting for God’s best

Kids are passing school while flunking in relationships. Raising a Lady in Waiting  provides you with the keys necessary to safeguard your daughter from pursuing “Bozos” and prepares her for the “Boaz” God has waiting.

    I am enthusiastic about this book so much that I am tempted to go all gushy over it, and I am not a person who easily gushes over a book. What grabbed me right from the beginning was the intimate tone of the book, as if two moms were seated at the kitchen table sharing a cup of coffee or tea and a cinnamon roll, telling each other our life stories. In the preface, Jackie Kendall shares two special memories most women love sharing with each other--her engagement story and her wedding story. The tale as she relates it reveals her heart, her back story and a couple of unexpected bonus moments. By the time I began reading chapter one, I knew the author was speaking from personal experience. She had herself overcome such abuse that it was a miracle she could live a peaceful, fruitful life without bitterness, rancor and anger. Knowing what she had overcome was the driving force for reading this book, for me. I wanted to know how she conquered the tendency to attract losers that matched her background. The principles she shared in the chapters are well worth getting the book for further reference. My only regret is that I didn't have this book fifteen years earlier.

    Ms. Kendall issued a disclaimer for this book in the introduction. "These words are meant to 'throw cold water' in your face if by chance you are under the illusion that there exists some type of perfect formula for successfully mentoring your child. These pages simply describe the pilgrimage I have been on as a mom. I admit to all that I am simply a fellow struggler who is addicted to hope in Jesus." I like this humble attitude. I agree that there is truly no magic formula for rearing our children to become responsible, caring, successful adults. But she does share with readers sound biblical principles that should improve their chances.

    Raising a Lady in Waiting is an extended Bible study of the book of Ruth from the Old Testament. The story of Ruth is about a young woman, the daughter-in-law of Naomi, whose wise decisions brought blessings to her family so protracted that the ripples from such grace shown her by God was felt hundreds of years later. The author shares valuable tenets from this study chapter by chapter:

    Being a Young Lady of Reckless Abandon

    Being a Young Lady of Diligence

    Being a Young Lady of Faith

    Being a Young Lady of Virtue

    Being a Young Lady of Devotion

    Being a Young Lady of Purity

    Being a Young Lady of Security

    Being a Young Lady of Contentment

    Being a Young Lady of Conviction

    Being a Young Lady of Patience

    Each chapter is chock full of stories, examples, research, lists, tips and word pictures with the intent to help mothers (and grandmothers) model and implement each main principle. The author's humor and ability to package the tidbits into palatable nuggets that will nudge our memories in the future is priceless. At the end are discussion questions, Bible verses, and sometimes projects for the mother and daughter to do together. This makes the book a valuable resource you will want to return to repeatedly.

    Not only does the book point the way for our precious Ladies in Waiting toward becoming Ladies of Excellence ready for the Boaz in their lives, it also teaches them how to distinguish a Bozo from a Boaz. Through this book, parents are to help our girls guard their hearts from predatory men and dead-end relationships.

    What I liked best is how the author talks to us, mom to mom. We are coached to model each of the character traits we desire to see in our daughters and granddaughters. We are encouraged to be patient because it's a gradual process that takes time, prayer, and dedicated effort. We are to remember that we will make mistakes, or fail to model Godly character from time to time because we are human. But above all, the author encourages us to place our young girls in God's competent hands. I intend to give a copy of this book to my daughter now that she is out of the nest, to use when she begins her own family.

    WOW!!! I am very impressed with this guide for moms. I was that teenager myself not so long ago and the teen's straggles that are brought up in this book are very real in today's world. Moms, read this guide, let it slap you in the face with truth and reality because believe me your baby isn't perfect and her friends aren't at fault. It is your fault that she isn't the lady in waiting for a perfect man that she is suppose to be. We- mothers have a great responsibilities towards our children, shelter and food don't even begin to cover all you have to provide for them. you have to give all of yourself because up in heaven God isn't going to ask you how many professional degrees you got and how many jobs you worked...all God is going to ask is - where are the children that I gave you?

    teenagers are at the point in their life where everything seems upset-down, they need someone to love them and guide them. Don't rely on schools and church to do your job.

    My mom was my best friend.... she lectured us as children but as we grew up that time that used to be a lecture turned into time where she wanted to know us. I always felt at ease to share all my secrets and little crashes on guys with her, because she didn't judge, she didn't go and talk behind my back, she listened and laughed with me and when needed she gave advice that I took to heart. I am blessed to have her I know-- I got my Boas, very romantic and a pillar of faith, and God sent him to me because I had a mom who thought me to wait for him.

    I pray that as my children grow I will be able to be that mother for them.

    I got this book because my niece turned thirteen last month and she is turning into a little rebellion but we are close and I wanted a fresh reminder how to help her. I'm very glad this book is keeping me on the right path. I am so buying the hard copy for my sister.

    Blessings to you dear readers as you open this book and your heart to your teenager..take courage...its never too late to reclaim your teens heart...

    Disclaimer: I got a free copy of this book, from Destiny Image Publishers, through NetGalley, in exchange for my honest opinion.

    By the second page of the preface Jackie Kendal had me hooked. As a father, grandfather, and an active member of a church reaching out to young families, I am always on the lookout for books and resources I can recommend to our Christian Education staff, parents of family and friends, and our church librarian. "Raising a Lady in Waiting" will be high on my list of recommendations.

    Each of the 10 chapters centers on Biblical principles highlighting an important characteristic of your young "Lady in Waiting" with guidelines for parents and profound questions for discussion. Lessons are drawn from the Biblical story of Ruth and Boaz. Jackie is passionate in her writing, entertaining, with subtle humor and an enjoyable wit, and contagious spirit. She articulates with clarity, as she expresses informed and proven principles.

    I only wish that the material addressing Mom's had been more inclusive to address parents or that specific suggestions would be made for Fathers as well. Chapter endnotes provide excellent additional resources for further consideration, study, and implementation.

    "Raising a Lady in Waiting" is an important guide for parents to insure that their daughters avoid the pitfalls of bad choices in their relationships while pursuing God's best.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
