Dads & Daughters

1. Remember, just like a butterfly, she too will spread her wings & fly one day. Enjoy the caterpillar years.
2. Always be there. Quality time doesn’t happen without quantity time. Be genuinely interested in the things that interest her.
3. Teach her how to pray. Show her how to live for God. Tell her about your struggles & strengths. Shape her faith, by modeling church attendance, giving, serving & loving. One day, she just might want to serve The Lord with even more passion than you.
4. There will come a day when she will ask for a puppy. Don’t overthink it. At least one time in her life, just say, “yes”.
5. Make her cinnamon bread for breakfast. One day, she’ll make it for her kids, too!
6. Tell her she’s beautiful! Say it over and over again. Some day a movie or “beauty” magazine will try to convince her otherwise.
7. She’s as smart as any ole boy. Make sure she knows that!
8. Teach her to roller skate! Watch her confidence soar!
9. Take her to the park & introduce her to the swings! Push her “higher & faster”, until she screams with laughter! Remember, her idea of higher & faster may be different than yours. 
10. Save the day. She’ll grow up looking for a might as well be you. She’ll need you to come through for her over and over again, throughout her life. Rise to the occasion. Red cape & blue tights are optional.
