The Mother/Daughter relationship is so critical in the life of a child because of the special bond that in a "Perfect" world, a mother and daughter should have.
Mothers shape the lives of their daughters and give security and wisdom about life and its challenges and joys. But, what happens when that relationship is distorted?

How would a young girl deal with the competition, rejection and misunderstanding that clouds her relationship with her mother?
At the age of 16, our guest was rejected by her mother for a boyfriend and a year later her mother died of AIDS. Hear how God restored her self worth and gave her insight into her mother's choices. Janelle is now a mother of sons and daughters. You will be amazed to see what only God can do in the life of a young woman when the very core and essence of her existence is shaken.
