Journeying towards Womanhood

How do you guide your daughter from childhood, through puberty, and towards womanhood?

This is a place for mothers with daughters to look for guidance, share experiences, and support one another.


Becoming a woman is a process, a journey, not a single event. You begin as a young girl, enter puberty, maturing as you move towards young womanhood, and somewhere emerge as a young woman. Of course the journey does not end there, for most it leads through further maturation, a career, maybe motherhood, and into old age.
What can we offer our daughters, nieces, god-daughters, neighbours’ daughters, and grand-daughters?

What do our girls need to be able to navigate their way safely through adolescence and into adulthood?

Let us find ways to:

maintain a healthy relationship with our daughters through adolescence

allow them to feel really special when the bleeding comes

and guide our girls robustly towards womanhood.

A forum for women who wish to support girls as they journey towards womanhood.

    I am so happy for this site. I am working on putting a website together for mums and daughter as well. I just open a facebook group. This is so lovely. L may have to refer mothers to this site during the coming mum daughter Webinar.

    God bless.

    Thank you, THANK YOU, for your beautiful words of wisdom and support. Tonight a small group of tweens and their mothers will meet for our first Rite of Passage get-together. Your excellent site was just what I needed to help present the world of womanhood to these girls. My daughter and I are very grateful!

      I am delighted to hear that my site has been useful in organising your daughters’ rites of passage. I would love to hear how it is going. I am just in the process of writing a short e-book guide to preparing for a girl’s coming-of-age ceremony and I will announce on this site when it is available. Warm wishes, Kim

  3. […] Secular Western society doesn’t do much to mark the transition from childhood to adulthood. So when a friend recommended a group which supports girls as they move into puberty, Cordie and I went along and in June 2015 Cordie began ‘Girls Journeying Together‘. […]
