First Line Fridays: Confident Moms, Confident Daughters

Happy Friday!

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books and participants share the first line from a nearby book.

Today I'm sharing the first lines from Confident Moms, Confident Daughters: Helping Your Daughter Live Free From Insecurity and Love How She Looks by Maria Furlough:

"I'll never forget the first time I saw what a confident woman looked like."

If you're interested in this book, check out my review here.

What are you reading this weekend?

Have a great weekend! Happy reading!


About the Book:


What we say to our daughters lasts a moment. What we show our daughters lasts a lifetime.

No matter how much we try to tell our daughters that they are beautiful and lovable as they are, words are not enough. And if we're honest, we don't always set the best example. How can we build up confident girls if we struggle to be confident ourselves?

With deep compassion, Maria Furlough delves into the root causes of our insecurity, offers biblical guidance for seeing ourselves as God sees us, and shows how to model our newfound confidence to our impressionable daughters. Speaking as a daughter, a youth leader, and a mother, Furlough shares her own struggles and triumphs, as well as expert advice from a pediatrician, a nutritionist, a Christian counselor, and more.

  1. Over on my blog this week, I'm sharing the first line from Jody Hedlund's newest YA book, Foremost.
    Here I'll share the first line of a book I'm nearly finished reading, Aiming for Love by Mary Connealy.
    "Josephine Nordegren floated through the woodland silent as a ghost."

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Christmas in Winter Hill by Melody Carlson. I'm currently reading Freedom's Kiss by Sarah Monzon. I'm just starting chapter 29, so I'll share the first line from there.

    "Florida, 1832
    Winnie felt like a cow being led to slaughter, just waiting her turn to stand before the butcher with a club in his hand."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with excellent reading time. ๐Ÿ™‚❤๐Ÿ“–

  3. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "Least Expected" by Autumn Macarthur:

    "Maggie Golding ran her fingers through her multi-coloured hair, planted her hands on her hips, and took a step back to examine the latest window display she'd created for Pettett and Mayfields London department store."
