Dave Ramsey, the popular financial expert, recently interviewed Meg Meeker, M.D., author of a fantastic book: Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters. If you are a father and you have a daughter and you have not read this book, you need to do so immediately. I first read this when my daughter was six months old and have seen many of Dr. Meeker’s principles proven true already.
This book is one I will return to over and over again. Chapter Three was my favorite. You are your daughter’s first love, and from you, she learns how a man should love her. And if she learns self-giving love from you, she will learn to expect that from others. And, if you love as you should, she will learn a bit about the nature of God and be able to love Him as a Father as well.
