Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters (Part 1)

So I’m reading a book. Like an actual book. You know, one of those paper thingys with tons of pages and 2 shiny covers and no pictures kind of books. It (“Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters” by Meg Meeker) is DISTURBINGLY FANTASTIC! Given to me as a suggested gift from my ma-in-law, I’ve taken the challenge to dive into the reality of my tiny tot girls growing up to become tweens, teens, college students and eventually wives and parents of their own tiny tots. Tons of useful insight. It has already changed my perspective on so many things that I haven’t even thought about previous to reading. Intake. Process. Implement. Proceed.

I am about half way through and just finished a chapter about the grueling reality of premarital sex and the associated physical and emotional consequences. I’m disturbed. Their humble sense of self worth is my responsibility and the reason I must continue. It’s never too early to: Intake. Process. Implement. Proceed.

  1. glad you are finding the book useful. ;)
    you know you do have a big responsibility. but you are up to the task because you serve a big God and you let Him lead you. i have faith in you. you and traci are great parents and i have no reason to believe that will change. i pray for you all and i love you all and i am here to help in any way i can. welcome to the blog world. :)

  2. I’m so proud you are reading a book! :0) But, really, this books sounds great. As a daddy’s girl, let me just tell you that there is nothing like this relationship you have with those two precious angels. I’m so glad you are my friend and am proud of the wonderful dad you are!

  3. at the risk of being quite vulnerable on a comment section of a blog, let me just say that the role of a father to his daughter(s) is so incredibly important. while I don’t want to sound like a whinebag grownup who can’t take responsibility for her own actions, I have spent much time in brokenhearted regret over the strained relationship with my dad and negative decisions I have made as a result of that relationship. there are holes in my heart that still have not begun to heal, even years after they were made. you are so important to your daughters self worth and emotional well-being and I am proud of you for taking an active role now while they are still so young. God would not have trusted you with the role if he did not think you could handle it!
