ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 31, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ --"Raising God's Girl" ($14.97, paperback, Certa Publishing, 978-0-9962716-9-1) by Rich and Mary Lou Graham was awarded the Benjamin Franklin Silver Award for Excellence. "Truly the best of the best," said Angela Bole, the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) Chief Executive Officer.

The Benjamin Franklin Awards, which includes fifty-four categories identifying excellence in book editorial and design, are regarded as one of the highest national honors for independent publishers.

"Raising God's Girl" has also received 5 star reviews and highly favorable endorsements. Jon Gordon, author of the Wall Street bestseller, "Energy Bus," declares it as "the go-to guide for raising daughters with purpose, courage, and conviction." The Old Schoolhouse magazine describes it as, "an amazing book full of helpful advice and practical steps in parenting girls."

In "Raising God's Girl," parents Rich and Mary Lou Graham address the unique challenges of raising daughters. Scripture teaches that daughters are gifts from God. But sometimes this truth can be missed in the whirlwind of emotions, activities, peer pressure, and media influence. "In our shaky world, having Christian parents should be an advantage," say the Grahams. "It should give our daughters the security of being forgiven, the hope of change, and the comfort of being loved through it all."

Parents are encouraged throughout this book to use their own specific personalities, talents, and passions to create a unique home environment where God is honored and their daughters can flourish. Through the conversation scenarios provided, readers are inspired to practically apply the principles learned in "Raising God's Girl." The clear instruction will encourage any parent, whether they are just starting out or in need of a fresh approach in their rearing journey. Making this truly well-rounded counsel, the Grahams have also included candid perspectives from their four daughters.

"Raising God's Girl" is an insightful book that will not only help parents foster the parent-daughter relationship, but it will also inspire them to a closer walk with God—leading their daughters, as God leads them. Rich and Mary Lou Graham explain that God uses the challenges of raising daughters to teach believers about their own relationship with Him. When Christian parents can understand and receive God's amazing love, they can then lavish it on their daughters. Indeed, they can raise a daughter who feels secure in her parents' love and is always sure of this: I am God's Girl!
