Book Review: She Still Calls Me Daddy

I had the awesome privelige this week to review another book for Thomas Nelson. At first, I wasn't for sure if I wanted to read this book or not since it talks to daddys about their relationships with girls. But I am really glad that I read it. Me, myself, I see as the one having the problem of letting go of our daughter when she gets to that point of leaving our nest and becoming a wife. How do you get past that and start a different relationship, the friendship between parents and children?
Here is the information from the back of the book:

A guidebook for fathers to help them create a new adventure with their married daughters.

Standing at the altar giving their little girl away begins a new day and the need for a new way for fathers to relate to their daughters. Robert Wolgemuth, author of the best-selling She Calls Me Daddy, reminds fathers of the important role they still play while offering insight as to how it must change in the next chapter of their girls' lives. Topics cover seven relational issues:

* Protection
* Conversation
* Affection
* Discipline
* Laughter
* Faith
* Conduct
Includes thoughts on an ongoing relationship as well as on becoming a granddaddy. Discussion questions provide a great opportunity for personal or group study.

This book really helped me to see in a new light that there is a relationship after your children leave the nest. Written by a very godly man who has already experienced this, this book would be a great addition to any father who may be getting ready to watch his daughter leave the comfort of her home and become a newlywed.

I would reccomend this book to anyone.

Have you ever thought about becoming a book reviewer? If you have a blog, Thomas Nelson is always looking for bloggers who will give great reviews!
