A Father's Influence

Fathers, you have more influence than you can imagine! No matter how old your little girl is, she still needs an example of a spiritual leader and a positive role model. Here are a few tips for you as you continue to pursue and protect your daughter's heart:

Schedule Time
What gets in the way of you spending time with your daughter? Brainstorm how you can be more intentional. Chances are if you are not pro-active about scheduling time for your daughter, then you will not make time.

Know Your Daughter
Learn what your daughter enjoys! Study her hobbies, her style and her personality. If you are going to purchase her a gift, learn what she would actually like and enjoy. Being intentional with your daughter could be as simple as picking up her favorite ice cream on your way home from work and sharing it as a late night snack together.

Go the Extra Mile
Once a month, go the extra mile by taking her out, just the two of you. Go to the mall and purchase that jacket she has been talking about all week, send her flowers or create a scavenger hunt leading to her favorite coffee shop.

Regardless of how you chose to spend your time, your decision to invest in her will have a lasting impact.
