Becoming Peers -
Mentoring Girls into Womanhood
By DeAnna L'am
Becoming Peers - Mentoring Girls Into Womanhood is an affirmative 'Yes!' to these timely questions.
This is an inspirational guide for mothers, grandmothers,
stepmothers, aunts, or any woman
wishing to nurture a girl through her coming of age
(while empowering herself!)
This book provides practical guidelines for mentoring a girl into womanhood. It offers creative ceremonies and activities designed to honor a girl’s transition and call her to new levels of maturity.
At the same time, it presents the adult woman/mentor with powerful tools for enhancing her inner and outer life.
Here is what some prominent writers say :

“A gem of a book! This is the first book I've seen that provides support, direction, and encouragement explicitly for mothers and other women attempting to foster confidence and joy in their girls during the momentous transition from girlhood to womanhood. The simple rituals and sensible suggestions offered in this book are touching and heartfelt.”
