Strength to Strength Sisters welcomed Carol Nisly to share on how mothers can best build and strengthen their relationships with their daughters.
Carefully stacked in a little-used cupboard, the Homer Laughlin bluebird set from one great-grandma is nestled beside another pattern handed down from another great-grandmother. These old dishes are among the treasures our daughters will inherit – and yes, we use them for special occasions! But there are other, more durable treasures I hope they will cherish and put to good use.
Mothers shape family culture. What legacy will your daughters inherit? Are you unsure about the balance of work and play? How to cultivate healthy relational patterns? How to tell them the facts of life?
Our children will inherit something, and by God’s grace, it can be more than our failures and fears! In this talk, I want to explore some anchors to steady the soul in stormy seasons. I hope by stories from my house, to encourage you to use your influence to facilitate enduring faith in family, community and church life.
An interactive question-and-answer period follows.

Home for me is in the southeast corner of Kansas. Stan and I are thankful for 28 happy anniversaries and two daughters, Hannah and Kathryn. I love homemaking! I find delight in reading and study, in tending plants, and making music. Crochet projects underway and those in the dreaming stage have a permanent abode by the side of my glider rocker.
I feel strongly about the value of women and what they bring to church and community life. Among my chief pleasures is time spent with friends in discussing Scripture, ideas and delicious books. I am energized by time spent in one-on-one nurturing and refreshed by solitude. I want to cultivate in our home and in my person, a beauty which invites others to join me at God’s table of grace.
