    My two daughters, now young adults, have expressed many times their gratitude for their father's influence in their lives. He has taught them things I never could. Because of his interactions and love for them, they trust that they are worthy of a man's complete love. What a gift from a father!

    I love having girls. I have 2 little girls and read a book several years ago called strong daughters strong fathers and realized that my role in their life is critical to their self-esteem, self-worth, sense of sexual identity and the list goes on and on. I am not belittling mother's roles as they are equally imperative in other avenues. What I am trying to say is that I am so blessed to have little girls who I love and adore. Since their mother and I divorced I have embraced learning how to braid their hair, paint their nails with kid polish, and other "girly" things along with sharing my testimony of God and His eternal plan. I love being a dad, and being a dad of little girls made my life so much sweeter.

    God Bless!!

    A girls self worth regarding body issues is framed in great measure by how the most important man in her life - her Daddy - chooses to teach her about the gift and wonder that is her body. When a father makes positive remarks to help her understand the good things her body does and helps her see the gift in all that she can do, he is teaching her more than just form and function. He is teaching her by degrees that she is a working masterpiece and that will help her have self worth that can last a lifetime.

    By having a father positively teaching her about herself, she can see that a real man is someone who appreciates her for who she is. As she matures, she can discern the difference between the truth her father has taught her and the lies of advertisers who try to make all women fit into one shape and size and list of acceptable characteristics.

    Good job, Daddy, for helping your little one begin to understand what a wonder she really is.
