One Year Father-Daughter Devotions

"The One Year Father-Daughter Devotions" by Jesse Florea, leon C. Wirth, and Bob Smithouser is a compilation of devotions meant to be shared between father and daughter. The daily devotions are relatively short, but offer a short story that ties into a Biblical principle. For example, one of my favorite devotions talks about hair (and what young girl isn't interested in her hair?) - it talks about famous people who are recognized for their hairstyle, and then goes on to talk about the Biblical stories of Samson and Absalom.

After the story and Biblical explanation, the devotion offers a "Daddy-Daughter Time" that gives suggestions for discussing the topic of the devotion, and help strengthen the bond between father and daughter. For example, the hair devotion prompts father and daughter to look at old photos and see old hairstyles, and discuss how their hair affects their opinion of themselves. It also asks father and daughter to share a special fact about themselves that not everyone would know.

The final part of the daily devotion is a Bible verse that ties the entire devotion together.

I thought that this book would be great for middle school age girls and their dads. The daily devotions are relatively short - only about one page each, so it would be easy to fit in before bedtime, or over breakfast. It offers a lot of great advice and Biblical wisdom, and would make a great bonding time for dad and daughter.

FTC DISCLOSURE: I received this book for free from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. I was not obligated to write a positive review.
