Does the word make you tingle all over with delight?
A year ago, a dear friend encouraged me to dive into God as my Father. Since then I have been on a beautiful, transforming, and heartrendingly glorious journey of finding God as my Father, and accepting my daughterhood in Him.
For many years the cover of Daughters of Eve, Daughters of God beckoned to me out of catalogues. But I misread the book description, and somehow, I didn’t think this book was for me. A few months ago, I summoned up the courage to read a sample of this book, and promptly checked it out of my church library.
“Why focus on being a daughter? It reminds us we belong. It causes us to ask other important questions: If I belong to Him, then how should I live? What is my purpose as a daughter of God? Will what I am about to do bring glory to my Father? Am I sincere in living for Him?”

Daughters of Eve, Daughters of God—A Call to Christian Women
As I read this book I was challenged to dive deeper into my daughterhood. Challenged to live victoriously as a daughter of God, while struggling through the trials of a daughter of Eve. Whatever you may be facing in your life, I invite you drink deep of the encouraging message Brenda Weaver presents out of her own struggles and joys as a daughter of Eve and a daughter of God:
“Do not refuse the gifts God has given you. Years may pass before we recognize our severest trials as gifts, but God’s grace is abundant. His glory will be evident when we allow the stones to be rolled away from caves of grief and emptiness. The circumstances and experiences of life are tools in God’s hand to move us forward on our journeys as daughters of God. Sometimes He chastises. Sometimes He challenges. Always He shows us His cherishing love.”
