Girl Mom Podcast

Girl Mom Podcast

Today's teenage girls face unprecedented challenges - and so do their parents. From anxiety, loneliness, and depression to struggles with friendships, body image, and self-worth, girls feel the overwhelm of a perfect storm that often leads them to despondency. For moms raising daughters, big questions have emerged: How can we help them thrive? How can we offer hope, wisdom, calm, and strength? In the Girl Mom podcast, blogger Kari Kampakis, a mom of 4 girls and author of 3 books (including the latest for moms, LOVE HER WELL) unites women who aim to be strong mothers raising empowered daughters. Addressing modern-day issues through the lens of faith, Kari helps mothers feel less alone, more encouraged, and more equipped to unleash the potential of their mother-daughter relationships.

For girls and women, friends are like oxygen.  They make life better, they "get us" like no one else, they induce side-splitting laughter, and they make impossible days feel bearable.
