Although, CSB Ministries, and more specifically our Stockade group is focused on boys, young men and adult men, we recognize that the father-daughter relationship is just as critical to helping young ladies navigate the “growing up” process, too.
It’s thirteen days until Father’s day. Today’s quote:
I am not ashamed to say that no man I ever met was my father’s equal, and I never loved any other man as much. – Hedy Lamarr
My immediate family was blessed with two sons. I’m proud of both of them, but I missed something by not raising a girl. While it may be obvious that girls and boys are different, I’ve heard from dads who have been raising girls that they provide their own set of interesting personality changes, challenges and opportunities.
So whether you’re raising sons, daughters or both with your spouse, I’ll just encourage you to keep praying for them, sharing the Word with them and protecting them (even when they’re sure that they don’t need your protection anymore.)

- What He Must Be . . . If He Wants to Marry My Daughter by: Voddie Baucham Jr. (a great book, easy read, and I found it helpful in training up my sons to be better prepared for meeting “Ms. Right” someday. Still, helpful for parents (especially Dads) of either daughters or sons.
