We as women must reclaim the our God-given gift of womanhood and teach our daughters. Additional resources and teaching can be found on her web site:
Key Note "Lead Like Jesus"
Vicki will show leaders how moms and daughters must depend on the Lord in a culture that often leads otherwise. She will share with you how moms must help their daugthters understand that they are more than what people see on the outside, they shouldn't be in such a hurry to grow up, sex is great and worth the wait, it's okay to dream about marriage and motherhood, and girls gone wild are a dime a dozen. You will learn how to help moms on how to talk with their daughters about these sensitive issues in a godly way.

There's only one way to find out.
