Maryanna5 Stars Out Of 5September 6, 2006MaryannaFathers and Daughters is a must read for anyone who has a relationship as a father or a daughter. It's a book of authentic letters between a father and a daughter that strengthened their relationship and how to strengthen your own relationship with Christ as the central focus. I have shared this book with several friends who have thanked me for the practical inspiration that this book brings out.

Tell us a little about yourself. David L. Barrett is the Director of the Biblical Worldview Learning Center. He has a B.A. degree in mathematics and an M.A. degree in family studies. He has worked in the educational field since 1985 as a homeschool father of seven, and the leader of a local homeschool organization ( The Montgomery Institute ). Since 1993 David has served as administrator and high school instructor at Covenant Academy , a private, Christian school that joins with the home in educating children to be the Christian Statesmen of tomorrow. Covenant Academy recently scored the highest of any schools on the PEERS Worldview Test. He is also the Academic Dean of Patria Academy International, a satellite school being developed for homeschool families. Elysse Barrett, serves as the Administrative Assistant of the Biblical Worldview Learning Center and is an accomplished speaker and writer. As a speaker, Elysse motivates her generation to make a difference in their communities and Churches by seizing their unique opportunity to have an impact on future generations. Elysse has her own ministry, America's Renewal , which provides services allowing speakers and organizations to more effectively impact the world for Christ. Her writings are published nationally as she is a regular columnist for Home School Digest . She is the co-author of Dont Miss Your Boat: Living Your Life Purpose in the Real World, Your Exceptional Life Begins Now and Fathers and Daughters: Raising Polished Cornerstones (2006) She is also active in various local and national organizations which seek to return our country to Christ, including Generation Life, Life Compass International, and Keep the Commandments Coalition. As the oldest of seven children, Elysses greatest joy is her family and friends, and her fondest dream is to fulfill her calling of being a Godly wife and mother.
What was your motivation behind this project? As we look across the landscape of Christian families and Christian homes, there is one relationship which has been universally forgotten and forsaken -- that of fathers and daughters. God designed it to be one of the most beautiful and powerful relationships that we can experience. As we seek to see the Godly family restored, we must not ignore the special bond that God creates between every girl and her daddy. As the authors, we want to see Christian families be all that God designed for them to be...and it starts with the restoration of a father's heart towards his daughter and a daughter towards her father! (Malachi 4:6)
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? We hope families will gain insight, encouragement, and inspiration to strive for God's best in their families, and especially in their Father-Daughter relationship. Through the restoration of Father-Daughter relationships, not only will families be blessed, and strengthened, but the culture can be changed as well.
