About the Author

Beth Bruno traded the Blue Ridge for the Rocky Mountains after two decades in mega cities. Upon graduating from Northwestern University in Chicago, she and her husband moved to an even larger city, Istanbul, where they led campus teams with Cru. Ten years later they moved to Seattle where Beth received an MA in International Community Development and launched a nonprofit aimed at preventing domestic minor sex trafficking. Beth regularly speaks and trains around the topic of trafficked youth, including interviews with local radio stations and lots of coffee with the FBI, Homeland Security, and local law enforcement. Beth's focus on women is most personal as it relates to raising her two daughters. She writes to uncover the glory of girls for publications including Relevant, Today's Christian Woman, the Well, Mudroom Blog, and Thrive. She speaks at women's retreats around the topic of pursuing passionate, purposed lives and finds support from being a member of Redbud Writer's Guild, an international organization for expanding the Christian feminine voice. Beth lives in Colorado with her husband of 20+ years and their three kids, almost all of whom have surpassed her in height.

Reviews

"An intensely intimate look into a mother's fight for her daughter's soul and purpose. The challenges of modern life and influences are no match for this intelligent and creative resource. Pulling from memoir, Biblical examples, literature, and real-life relationships, A VOICE BECOMING is decisively the resource for creating a life-changing rite of passage for your coming-of-age daughter."--Shayne Moore, author and founder of Redbud Writers Guild
"Beth Bruno clearly has a heart for girls, and in this unique resource for mothers and daughters, she bridges the two generations. With wisdom, humility, and heartfelt confessions, Beth offers a road map on how to celebrate our adolescent daughters while helping them discover their voice and purpose. In an age of intentional parenting, where moms hunger for guidance on how to raise strong, confident, and godly girls, this book meets an important need. Taken to heart, it can strengthen both families and society for many years to come."--Kari Kampakis, mother of four daughters and author of 10 Ultimate Truths Girls Should Know and Liked: Whose Approval Are You Living For?
"In her practical book, Beth Bruno helps mothers imagine their daughters' transition from girlhood to young adulthood differently, inspiring courage in place of fear, intentionality where there might otherwise be resignation. Besides offering wonderful recommendations of books and movies and activities to share together, Beth most importantly invites mothers into conversation and intimate relationship with their daughters. I only wish I'd read A VOICE BECOMING when my own two daughters were younger."--Jen Pollock Michel, award-winning author of Teach Us to Want and Keeping Place
"Beth's book is a must read for mothers, grandmothers, aunts, as well as, fathers and grandfathers and uncles! I wish we had this guide raising our two daughters, but we now have two granddaughters and the role we play is far more active in promoting the strength, voice, and character of our girls. Both granddaughters have t-shirts that say: 'The future is feminine.' I believe this is true and there is no more important task than helping our granddaughters forge a future that is full of God and rich with the use of power for the glory of God. This guide is a gift for all those who believe in our children's and grandchildren's future."--Dan B. and Rebecca Allender, Ph.D., founders of the Allender Center for Trauma and Abuse and Professor of Counseling Psychology, The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology
