She Still Calls Me Daddy: Building A New Relationship with Your Daughter after You Walk Her Down the Aisle is written by Robert Wolgemuth.
Yesterday my husband and I attended our friends' 50th-anniversary party. We witnessed 4 generations of Bridal gowns worn in the family... oh so lovely and each one sewn with such grand detail. There was such joy on the couples face as they renewed their vows. The crowd mostly comprised of family, grandchildren, friends and a few musicians all unanimously agreed it was a special time, yet quite rare these days to witness 2 people who have stayed married for such a long time... 50 years!
After participating in all the wondrous events, I came home and settled down to finish reading a wonderful book sent to me for review from Thomas Nelson. Thank you, thank you! Some very important and truly sensitive issues are discussed from the author's perspective of "letting go". Robert Wolgemuth brilliantly writes from his heart and shares with his audience about his own memories with his daughters growing into woman hood and then leaving to cleave to their new husbands.
Have the roles between father and daughter, mother and daughter changed as they draw closer to the wedding day? And now add a new son in law into the equation. What comes next? Will there be a manual or guide book that will give Dad's logical steps with new insights to face through these role changing events?
Yes, I believe you will find great treasures written here in Robert's great book, She still Calls Me Daddy. I give this book 5+ stars. It will warm your heart, you'll get a chuckle or two and yes, your eyes will fill with tears for a moment because you can relate to the family discussions on relationships.
What I like most about the book is the approach from the beginning. Chapter One "Saying Goodbye" starts with a quote from Meredith Willson, The Music Man, "WHERE IS THE GOOD IN GOODBYE? And then to conclude with "The big idea of this book is to make sure that you and I know - for certain - that we're the recipients of the Gift that changes everything. The book is all about a Father's Love for His daughter!
This special book was an appropriate book for me to talk about with you on Father's Day... a Father's heart of love for his daughter. It was an honor and a pleasure to read this well-written book, spoken from the heart! I highly recommend you purchase She Still Calls Me Daddy. It's not by chance that God puts son-in-laws into your life and that your role of dad is forever changed on that day that you say: "Her Mother and I"
Happy Father's Day!
