The Girlhood Home Companion is a beautiful full color print magazine that encourages young ladies to enjoy their precious girlhood years while developing a deeper relationship with the Lord. Each edition features encouraging stories that center on a godly character quality, while teaching yourdaughter the practical skills of homemaking, cooking, crafts, sewing and other girlhood pastimes. There is nothing so lovingly designed with the heart of a Christian girl in mind as The Girlhood Home Companion.
God’s magnificence can be seen in all of creation, from the tiniest bee to the largest sunflower. Your children can become His naturalists by keeping nature journals and collecting specimens found in your own backyard. Meet Beatrix Potter and hear about the creative environment she grew up in. Learn how to help your children, preschool through high school, express their thoughts and perceptions creatively as they observe, draw, and record the world of nature around them.
Every Day is a Gift is a result of what I’ve discovered over the last eight years from teaching my four children (pre-school through high school) to journal their life stories. Just like your children, they are so unique, with different learning styles and temperaments. But I have learned that all children – not just the naturally gifted ones – can confidently express themselves if they are taught to value their life experiences and write from what they know. ~Jill Novak
In the course of putting together new issues of The Girlhood Home Companion, I talk to many lovely mothers and daughters about their walk with the Lord, homemaking, and their areas of expertise. I come away from these conversations inspired and refreshed, knowing there is a community of mothers and daughters who are committed to making their homes a reflection of God’s beauty and grace – first for their families, and then for others the Lord brings their way. The Tea Cozy Club™ gives you and your daughters monthly access to inspiring conversations pertaining to homemaking, godly girlhood and womanhood, plus monthly recipes and resources to enrich your mother~daughter
I have collected quite a number of books over the years on the subjects of godly character, manners, homemaking, and the training of daughters. These books have ministered to my daughters’ hearts and encouraged them in their Christian walk, while instructing me how to gently guide them along the path of life. Although we have produced The Girlhood Home Companion Magazine for over a decade and featured many nuggets of wisdom from my library in this precious publication, I have had a desire to share more of my collection than magazine production allows, and in a format that can be accessed topically. That’s how the idea for The Girlhood Finishing School came into being.
The word “companion” is found only 13 times in the Bible. In the Greek New Testament it is “sugkoinonos,” meaning “participant with others in anything, a joint partnership.” Another word which is closely related is “sunergos,” meaning “a companion of labor, one who labors in furthering the cause of Christ.” These two words perfectly describe the ministry of The Girlhood Home Companion. We are joint partners with your daughter, helping her to participate in all that is feminine and lovely as she grows in the Lord, and a companion in labor, helping her cultivate godly character qualities, thus furthering the cause of Christ.
