Daughters Arise is a guidebook for creating uplifting retreats for girls of all cultures entering womanhood and their mothers or mentors. It uses drama, music, art, movement, ceremony, and story to nourish each participant's spirit.
The retreat activities celebrate what it means to be a girl or woman in contemporary culture and what it means to be a daughter of God.
"We knew we needed to re-introduce our daughters and ourselves to the authentic gospel of Jesus' accepting love. Could our work welcome and support our daughters' journeys and also reach the women who long to remain in the church or return to it?, " write authors Gloria Koll, Donna Humphreys, and Sally Windecker.
The guidebook is divided into two parts:
-- Practical information on establishing and planning a four-day retreat.
-- Program resources to enhance a retreat.
