Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters

A strong father figure in a girl’s life will shape her future.  Dr. Meg Meeker’s book, “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters” shares many truths about dads and their daughters.  My husband brought this book home and I started reading it, and loved it.

My husband just left on a date with our two teenage girls, so I just had to write something from this powerful book!

I wanted to share the following paragraph that describes how a daughter feels when she is in the presence of her father:

“When she’s in your company, your daughter tries harder to excel.  When you teach her, she learns more rapidly.  When you guide her, she gains confidence.  If you fully understood just how profoundly you can influence your daughter’s life, you would be terrified, overwhelmed, or both.  Boyfriends, brothers, even husbands can’t shape her character the way you do.  You will influence her entire life because she gives you an authority she gives no other man.”  Meg Meeker M.D.

If you have a husband, encourage him with these words.  A father has a huge responsibility in raising our daughters.

If you are a father reading this, remember that your daughter thinks the world of you.  No matter how your relationship is today, she loves you deep down in her heart and would love to spend more time with you.

Let’s fight for a great relationship with our children.  We may grow weary in the fight but God will give us the strength to get back up!
