The One Year Father-Daughter Devotions [Book Review]


The One Year Father-Daughter Devotions by Jessie Florea, Leon C. Wirth and Bob Smithouser is a wonderful tool for helping fathers raise their daughters in the Word and create a bond that will last a lifetime. There is a devotion for every day of the year and they are dated so it is easy to pick up on if you miss a few days. Each devotion features a lesson, verse, and Daddy-Daughter Time section to go over everyday. These are great lessons that help you generate discussion on Biblical and life principles. Although the devotions are not in-depth, it is a great way to get started on questions and discussions so that you can interact with your daughter more.

The book also features two bonus sections - Movie Nights and Dates. The Father-Daughter Movie Nights is a section that shares ways that dads and daughters can view a movie together and then gives you ideas on a few questions to guide a discussion about the movie and its implications in your lives. They give several video suggestions but you can do this with any movie. The Daddy-Daughter Dates is a section that outlines reasons for going on daddy-daughter dates, some date ideas, and ideas on conversations you can have during the date.

The biggest thing I took away from this was that it gives my daughter and I a set time to be able to get together and spend time interacting with each other. It is so important for her to have time with me as her father and for me to give her the attention she needs and answer questions she may have. This is a great tool to use to get the conversation started.

I received this book for free from Tyndale House Publishers for this review. My thoughts and opinions during this review are my own.
