Dads and daughters: how a dad can be his daughter’s hero.
In this interview with Focus on the Family, we explore the depth of the father/daughter relationship, offering encouragement to dads and practical ways to connect with daughters. With stories from my ministry to dads as well as my own bond with my dad, I offer hope that you, too, can have a strong relationship with your daughter.
Please watch the entire interview below.
For those who may not know me, here is a little background about my experiences with fathers of daughters:
In January 2010 I founded The Abba Project where I lead dads of daughters ages 13 to 30 to dial in with more intention and consistency to their heart space. I lead a local group in Portland, Oregon annually every year from September through May. (you can read more under The Abba Project)
I have coached offspring Abba Project groups in Virginia and Washington State, with more to come.
I have written a book for dads of daughters titled, Dad, Here’s What I Really Need from You: A Guide for Connecting with Your Daughter’s Heart and it’s also available in audiobook form in my own voice on Audible here.
My second book, “Let’s Talk, Conversation Starters for Dads and Daughters” is filled with scripts for dads to equip them to strategically lead their daughters into conversations that matter, with a focus on greater depth that will allow her to know herself better!
I host a radio program called The Dad Whisperer where my purpose is to provide practical resources for dads, especially those with daughters. (available here, iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, and Google Podcasts)
