Our Story

On January 6, 2017, founder Melanie D. Phillips stepped out on faith and started Strengthen The Bond. Her vision was birthed out of the desire to create outlets and opportunities to  help Mothers and Daughters connect, heal and celebrate each other while strengthening their bonds. It's first Mother/ Daughter luncheon was held in Memphis, TN. It was full of memorable moments, a powerful message, great food and a true celebration between mothers and daughters. Strengthen The Bond hosts: annual luncheons, quarterly events, discussion groups, volunteering opportunities and more.

Check out the experiences below, and stay tuned for updates, new blog posts and events happening in your city.

Since the beginning of time prayers and poems have always been the manner in which people express their feelings and emotions. In this book, “And Your God Shall Be My God,” mothers and daughters came together to take us on an intimate journey expressing their love, hurt, pain, and forgiveness through poems and sharing their prayers for each other.

Yet, this book is not just for biological moms. Although, that mom may have given birth; it takes a special person to love, raise, influence, and help create and/or start the life for that daughter that she can call her own. No matter the situation or circumstance mothers and daughters share an unconventional or a personal bond.
