A Daddy’s Message to His 16 Year old Daughter
My daughter is turning 16!!!! Where did the years go? In the world of high fashion, criticism, dieting, and pornography driven self-value… I want her to see herself through the lens of God not western society.
The exercise is to take her to a beautiful place… warm her up with an all-day experience where she knows you are captivated… totally attentive… and completely hers. Every girl longs to be lovely in the eyes of her daddy. If she doesn’t continually get this from you dad… she’ll try to get it from somewhere else… a fraudulent place with many times malicious purpose. Look her in her eyes and with a the strength of all your masculinity speak these life giving words into her (it helps if you not only memorize them but say them with conviction and emotion – you know… there’s a big difference from an actor who simply memorizes their lines verses one who makes you feel like you are right there in the movie with them).
