    1. One of the greatest harms we have inflicted upon our souls stems from our our denial of the feminine face of God. By making God into a bearded, robed patriarch (even if only in our mind’s eye), we have lost the ability to recognize what Trista Hendren beautifully and simply calls, “The Girl God.” On my own spiritual journey, I was deeply wounded by an exclusively male image of the divine. And it started when I was a child. A child looking for answers to questions I didn’t even have the w [...]


    2. Enter to win a free copy of this book on ! I have read and reread this little gem of a book more times than I can count. Although it is a children's book, it honestly is so much more. It's about women and girls and the divine feminine and God (but not in that way). The Girl God is beautifully versed, beautifully illustrated, and full of beautiful quotes. If you have a daughter, you should read this to her. If you have a son, you should read this to him. If you are a woman you should read this no [...]


    3. The Girl God is a must have on your daughter's book shelf. The story/conversation from a mother to daughter is undeniably relatable. The powerful quotes within the book make a great read for older children and adults. To top it off the art work and bright colors are absolutely captivating. It also caught the attention of my baby girl. This is one book that can be enjoyed on ALL age levels. My daughters and niece's eyes lit up when I read it to them. Simply stated, The Girl God opens up necessary [...]


    4. This is a beautifully written and illustrated meditation on The Divine Feminine. The quotes in the book are deeply inspiring and the story line is simple, sweet, and reflective of the clear/deep heart of the author. I recommend this for all who are interested in exploring spirituality.


    5. Trista Hendron, author, and Elisabeth Slettnes, illustrator, have teamed up for a powerful celebration of the divine feminine. THE GIRL GOD dedicated to Trista’s daughter Helani addresses a child’s confusion over God’s identity as well as her own, growing up with parents who are separated. The text is supplemented with powerful artwork and timely quotes.While this book is suitable for children (and adults) of all ages it should be a must have for children just learning to read. The illustr [...]


    6. THE GIRL GOD holds the key by which children may unlock the world of Divine Presence.In her book, Trista Hendren poses a question: “Can you find the Girl God inside of you?” It’s an important question to ask. Encouraging young girls to get in touch with the divine feminine is a powerful rite of passage, enabling them to recognize their spiritual potency as well as the importance of the feminine in upholding the creative balance of life.I loved the way the book moves between girl and woman [...]


    7. I found this treasure in The Crossroads store on Jay St. in Schenectady but perhaps it's on too? It's a book that I'll keep, pillowed by other awesome books on women's spirituality. It's a children's book that ADULTS should read and I wanted to own. The slender paperback (maybe 9" x 11"?) is packed with beautiful contemporary art created by the illustrator. And the quotes, in small print below the art, are grown-up quotes from people like Rumi, Gandhi, Sojourner Truth, Judy Chicago, Starhawk, S [...]


    8. Oh, wow. I picked this small but mighty book up for free today from . I was intrigued by the picture on the front cover and the title. I thought I was getting a children's book. I believe this is an 'everybody' book.The story was from a mother to her daughter. A sweet simple story. But the wisdom of the story runs deeply. Then there are the quotations throughout; each capturing a piece of my soul. All the illustrations were engaging. I wish I bought this in tree form as I would like to spend mor [...]


    9. The author has done something very important with The Girl God. Teaching children that young girls are not subject to a male God and his rules makes it clear that girls are valuable and play a greater role in society than be the servant of males. While it may not seem like a big deal, being indoctrinated into a world that views men as superior and females as subordinate teaches girls subtle messages that we are not important in life. But when we grow up learning that we are important, we grow up [...]


    10. The Girl God by Trista Henderson and illustrated by Elisabeth Slettnes is an amazing book. The illustrations are beautiful. The story itself had me glued to the pages. It was of a young girl and her mothers conversations over the aspect of god/goddess. This book should be read by all children and adults. It is a beautiful story with many great quotes from others. I really enjoyed reading this book and plan to share it with my daughter and many others! It is a must read!Received the book for free [...]


    11. This is so much more than a children's book. There is the central children's story at the top of the pages, but there are beautiful poems, quotes, and narrative passages at the bottom of each page under the gorgeous illustrations by Elisabeth Slettnes. I absolutely recommend this for every woman who is interested in the divine feminine as well as recommend it for all children.


    12. Such a wonderful bookI've just finished my first reading of this book and can think of ten children who I hope to share it with. So beautiful, thought-provoking, and important.


    13. This a wonderful book. I have been reading, studying and practicing the ways of the Goddess for over thirty five years. Never have I found the essence of Goddess teachings distilled into such wisdom. Each page is filled with teachings that are both profound and accessible. The wonderful artwork captures the the spirit and imagination of the writing. Don't let the size fool you. There is so much to gained from this book. While this would be excellent for girls wanting to find the Divine that is l [...]


    14. This was a cute book, but I'm unsure how it would translate to kids who were brought up with the divine feminine around them. For example kids in pagan or Hindu families.Either way it's quite cute and would be nice for kids who feel left out of spirituality because of how gendered it is in mainstream Abrahamic religions,


    15. This is a GREAT book for little girls (and boys)! It is such an affirming account of sacred femininity that is told through a sweet story between the author and her daughter, and through quotes from a diverse grouping of authors and world religious leaders. BEAUTIFUL artwork throughout as well! Highly recommended for parents looking to teach daughters that being a girl is an awesome thing to be!


    16. Great StuI really appreciate this tale of female power written for the young and so beautiful illustrations. I look forward to reading it with the little girls in my life.


    17. Beautiful paintings accompany thoughtful story that asks the reader (or listener) to seek out the feminine divine within themselves. A very pretty and thought-provoking little book.


    18. An beautifully illustrated allegory calling people to stop polluting Mother Earth and pick up stewardship of our planet.
