Dear Partnering Church Thank you for inquiring about hosting a mother daughter conference in your area. We are very excited about what the Lord is doing through our Walking Together conferences bringing moms and daughters together to see what Gods Word says about the heart of their relationship. Only His Word has the power to truly restore families and change lives. Please read through the enclosed information on becoming a partner church. If you have any questions please let us know. We are looking forward to ministering with you In Jesus Love Sue Liljenberg International Director 253-686-4592 About The Conference 2 THE NEED Todays teens need strong parental bonds and support more than ever. Mothers and daughters have a unique relationship. When things are going great between them it is smooth sailing. But throw a conflict into the mix and things can get rocky really fast. How do they deal with conflict Even in Christian homes moms and daughters can easily resort to eye-rolling mumbling snide remarks giving the cold shoulder or slamming doors when they disagree. Fear anger or a demand for perfection are the most common heart-issues driving mom and daughter further and further apart. Is there a way they can live in harmony at home Yes there is The Walking Together conference brings to light critical truths from Gods Word about how mothers and daughters can both repair and promote healthy God-honoring relationships with one another. 50 of high school seniors regularly drink alcohol6 and do not think its harmful to try crack cocaine or heroin.7 See Footnotes on page 20 46.4of Sunday school attendees said No. The church is not relevant for my needs. 9 we can change these HEART-BREAKING FACTS 90 67 xxx 81 FAT Every TW hours...1 ...120 babies will be born to teen moms. ...720 teens will contract an STD 4 millionyear. ...960 teens will inflict self-injury. ...120 teens will become runaways. ...480 teens will get high on prescription drugs. ...97 girls will be raped.

I love that the study is so focused on the truth of Gods Word. I trust God will use it to help many women and girls Lisa Chan Speakerteacher and co-founder with her husband Francis of Cornerstone Community Church Simi Valley CA I have reviewed multiple Bible studies for young women over the years but First Love is truly unique. What impresses me most about the study is that it is saturated in Scripture. Young women will learn that Christ needs to be their first love by digging deep into His Word. In a culture permeated with many false loves it is refreshing to have a study that uses Scripture to guide young women to run to and cling to their one true love found in Christ alone.
