Now it doesn’t have to be.
A Video-Based Course to help YOU give your daughter The Whole Story about Sex, Puberty, and Growing Up!
Do you find talking to your daughter about sex, puberty, and boys
to be one of the scariest parts of parenting?
…Afraid you’ll say something wrong?
…Not sure how to get the conversation started?
…Just plain find it uncomfortable?
You’re in the right place!
We’ve created a course that can help YOU have those conversations with your daughter–
without it being so scary.
Most parents feel woefully unprepared to talk to their daughters about sex.
And because we feel so scared, too often we make it uncomfortable for our daughters, too.
But what if you had HELP starting that conversation?
What if your daughter could hear about the hard stuff from “funny big sisters”,
and then you could continue the conversation in a much more stress-free way?
This video based course features two young people teaching your daughter about everything they need to know about sex, puberty and growing up…
And then has discussion questions, checklists, and mother-daughter activities so that you can keep that conversation going!
Because this is too important a conversation to leave up to chance.

The Whole Story comes geared towards two different age groups:
For Girls Aged 10-12
The younger version is information based about the changes her body is going through.
It includes everything your daughter needs to know about:
- Her period, including why it happens, how to handle it, and how to make it most comfortable.
- Other body changes she will be experiencing, including breast development, hair growth, and body odor.
- What sex is and how babies are made.
- How to handle boys and peer pressure in the preteen years.
- How to take care of your body to manage all of these changes.
Yes! I want the younger version!
For Girls Aged 13-15
The older version is more world-view based about the social changes she’s going through.
It includes everything your daughter needs to know about:
- How to troubleshoot issues with your period that aren’t often talked about.
- Navigating relationships with guys in the teenage years.
- Discussions about how to handle social issues like when friends make mistakes, bullying, and online peer pressure.
- Candid conversation about the highly sexualized world we live in and how to honor God in the midst of that.
- Learning the skill of styling yourself to send a message–a message that honors God and shows respect for yourself and others.
Yes! I want the one for teenagers!
Do you find yourself asking:
- WHEN do I tell her WHAT? What’s age appropriate?
- How do I even start the hard conversations about puberty or sex–let alone say words like “menstruation” or “penis”?
- How can I make sure she knows everything she needs to know?
- What do I do when SHE seems embarrassed to talk about things?
Or worst of all,
What if she knows what her father and I are doing now?
The younger version covers all of this!

Or do you find yourself asking:
- How can I teach her the real meaning behind sex?
- How can I help her withstand peer pressure and deal with pornography and body image issues?
- How can I help her have healthy relationships with boys?
And most of all….
How do I keep her talking to me at all?
The older version covers all of this!

The course isn’t a REPLACEMENT for you.
It’s a RESOURCE for you
to start those conversations in a natural, unintimidating way–
so that you can continue them for years to come.
I sure didn’t handle talking to my daughters about sex and puberty well!
I took Rebecca, my oldest, away on a weekend when she was 10 1/2 and listened to another course. Its emphasis was on teaching purity–getting girls to promise not to have sex until they were married.
She was so grossed out she would have promised never to look at a boy again in her life!
My youngest asked for details when she was 8, and I guess I didn’t explain it well, because the next day she hugged me and said, “I’m so sorry you had to go through that to get me, Mommy, but thank you.”
I also forgot to teach her to shave. Forgot to get them emergency kits in case they “leaked”. Forgot to warn them about porn. Forgot to teach them what to do when their friends started getting into trouble.
I was teaching about sex from the stage, but it was so hard when it was my own daughters!
As they got to be older teenagers we all got much more comfortable, and we’re really open now.
But we wanted to create for you the course that I wish I had had when my girls were younger–
So that you can avoid all the mistakes that I made!
(and here we are joking about it)
I believe that your daughter’s youtube is the best video I’ve seen on [how we teach modesty]. My 17 yo daughter and I have been having these discussions lately. I showed her the video and she thought it was right on as well!Karen D.
Thank you SO much! Being a mom of 6 (4 being girls) [teaching healthy sexuality] is a much discussed subject. I was raised TOTALLY sheltered and my husband was pretty much allowed to learn most everything on his own (he survived!) It takes a bit to find our balance. So your confirmation that this is about a continuing conversation is very refreshing. God bless your efforts!Jennifer B.
Thank you! My oldest is 14 and we’re just treading these waters. I grew up in a “sex is bad” house and it took me a long time and a some mistakes to get over it. Praise God for His grace! Anyway, this is exactly the message I want me kids to get. Sex is wonderful and beautiful in the right context.Theresa L.

Her daughter’s are now joining her voice to share and teach other women like me who need to know what works and what doesn’t when it comes to navigating this parenting relationship, the good, the bad and always for the better.Joanne Kraft
I found it easier to tell my girls the basics about the facts of life than I did to add the personal element to it as they grew into teens.
I told them about their periods, but talking about porn? Masturbation? Peer pressure? I wasn’t as good at that.
And I was also really frustrated with the way that the resources that I did have available were slanting the whole conversation.
The guide I used when Rebecca hit puberty was all about purity–teaching her why sex was only for marriage. But at that age (she was 10), the thought of actually doing that wasn’t even on her radar.
She didn’t need to be convinced to wait until marriage. She needed to be convinced that it was a good thing at all!
And so we didn’t really delve too much into purity, because I thought the lessons would backfire. And then, when she was 14 and 15 and actually ready for those lessons, we had moved on.
That’s why we’ve arranged this course so that, for the younger girls, it’s more information based. We tell them what is happening and why, but we leave the emotional part until the older version. That’s when we delve into those hard topics that affect teenagers.
I found that so many girls today hit puberty when they’re still really young and before sexual feelings really start. Yet often that’s the last time moms talk to their daughters–when they hit puberty.
And then, when they really need us, we’ve forgotten how to have those conversations.
With The Whole Story, you can keep having those conversations!
But we don’t aim to replace you. This is just a resource to START those conversations.
Rebecca, when writing her book Why I Didn’t Rebel, found again and again that it was parents’ expectations of their children that made the biggest difference. When parents were authentic with their kids about their faith, and expected their kids to be authentic, too, then kids tended to follow Jesus easily. But when parents expected the worst, or didn’t tell the kids what they expected at all, kids tended to flounder.
Our philosophy in this course is that we’ll tell your kids the information and in general terms what God wants, but then we have discussion guidelines, checklists, and activity ideas so that you can have the real heart-to-heart with your daughter, in a stress-free way, about what guidelines you want her to have.
It’s what YOU think about modesty that matters. It’s the guidelines YOU have about dating and sex that matter.
I’m not raising your daughters, and my girls certainly aren’t raising them, either!
It’s YOUR values that matter.
So let us start those conversations at just the right ages, and then YOU can guide those conversations home.
Here’s what’s in The Whole Story:
Younger Version (ages 10-12)
