This little jewel of a book is a powerful tool for young adults. It’s very readable and
easy to digest, yet packed full of timeless wisdom. Jennifer and Barbara found interesting ways to explore the complexity of questions we ask ourselves. I especially like the sections where you get together with friends and discuss certain questions. In these stressful and emotional times, where meanness of spirit is so often idolized, it is vital to hear from the voices of compassion.

What a beautiful handbook for young women passing into womanhood. My own daughter is turning 13, and I will definitely share it with her. It's a priceless gift from one generation to another.

Diamonds, Pearls & Stones is full of absolute gems! These are words that nourish, uplift and promote self-love.


This is a powerful book for reconnecting with the circle of women. It’s a book that reminds us of the infinite reservoir of support available to us all when we open ourselves to the wisdom of women who’ve gone before us.
