Dad, you love your little girl. She holds your heart. You would do anything to make her happy and keep her safe. You’re the most important man in her life, and you feel the weight of that responsibility. But even with the greatest intentions, it’s hard to connect. How do you engage her attention? How do you share your faith in a way she’ll understand? How can you influence her attitudes and character? Fatherhood is a gift but it’s not always easy to find our way.
We want to build you up in your journey as a dad. Today we’re excited to share our brand-new seven-day devotional for fathers on YouVersion. To give you a taste of what this study contains, check out an encouraging word from Day One:
“I often hear how significant a dad’s relationship with his daughter is to her emotional and spiritual well-being. You’re going to be the first important and influential man in your daughter’s life. A strong relationship with your daughter can direct her heart and mind toward the right influences, and ultimately toward a relationship with God.
So many voices surrounding our daughters tell them what they’re not: not thin enough, not stylish enough, not smart enough, not athletic enough, not, not, not. A dad can communicate to his daughter who she truly is: a beautiful child of a God who created her intentionally, has plans for her, and loves her with all his heart. This message is conveyed through time spent together where affirmation, fun experiences, meaningful conversations, and prayers happen.”
The Lord will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
