Fathers and Daughters
Raising Polished Cornerstones
As we look across the landscape of Christian families and Christian homes, there is one relationship which has been universally forgotten and forsaken — that of fathers and their daughters. God designed it to be one of the most beautiful and powerful relationships that we can experience. As we seek to see the Godly family restored, we must not ignore the special bond that God creates between every girl and her daddy.
David Barrett, and his twenty-one year-old daughter Elysse want to see Christian families be all that God designed for them to be… and it starts with the restoration of a father’s heart toward his daughter and a daughter towards her father! (Malachi 4:6
Laugh and cry with David and his daughter Elysse as they open the door to their home and their relationship. Allow them to share with you their struggles and successes as they have sought to make Jesus Christ Lord of their father-daughter relationship. In more than a dozen topics, David shares about their unique relationship through the eyes of a father, while Elysse looks at their life and dreams through a daughter’s heart.
This book is written for fathers and daughters of all ages, as David and Elysse reflect on over twenty years of growing, learning, and sharing as Dad and daughter.
