Girl Code: Secrets From Our Unofficial Rule Book – 090

“Girl code,” you know what we’re talking about! Those unofficial rules that every member of our tribe understands, the code of behavior that governs female friendship. We have guidelines (even if we don’t say them out loud) on everything from dating to clothing, keeping secrets, and how we mother each other’s children. In this episode, cross-generational friends and co-hosts, Darlene Brock and Julie Graham, give real-life examples of how women live by this set of rules. When we do, our relationships become strong and life-giving. And yes, they can be downright funny. Listen, laugh, nod, and share this one with your girls!
