Publisher's Description

Where Was Daddy When You Needed Him?

The absence of fathers is an epidemic plaguing our society, affecting families from every corner of our world and from all walks of life. Whether our fathers left us entirely during our childhood or were physically present but emotionally distant, those who missed out on an affirming, intimate father-love continue to experience the devastating consequences of that loss.

• Are you angry at the world and don’t know why?
• Do you inadvertently sabotage relationships or smother those closest to you?
• Do you rarely take risks or step out on faith?
• Is there an undercurrent of anxiety in most tasks you perform?
• Do you struggle to connect with God?
• Do you have little or no self-confidence–or minimal self-worth?

For women who answer yes to these questions, the common denominator is often an absent father. Far too many daughters have been stripped of a healthy relationship with their earthly dad. But real healing is within your reach.

Discover how the absence of your father has impacted your entire life–your attitude, your actions, your beliefs, your decisions, and your identity–and learn how you can stop resulting negative behaviors, beak free, and experience a confidence-building, empowering love that will heal your hurts and fulfill your deepest longings.

Editorial Reviews

“The father issue affects the very core of a woman’s life. Monique Robinson has done a fine job of addressing this very special relationship between a woman and her father by giving those who have struggled in this area practical principles for healing unreconciled wounds and reminding us that God is the only perfect Father.”
–Michelle McKinney Hammond, author of In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man

“In Longing for Daddy, Monique Robinson compassionately and insightfully helps women recover from the devastations of failed fathering. Through self-examination, inspiration, and prayer, readers learn to break free of their negative behaviors and embrace real healing. A must-read for those serious about journeying toward spiritual maturity.”
–Ronn Elmore, Psy.D, author of An Outrageous Commitment: The 48 Vows of an Indestructible Marriage

“For those women who know the pain of having been wounded or rejected by their father, Monique Robinson has unlocked the secret door that leads us to understanding, healing, forgiveness, and in some cases restoration.  I thank God that she was inspired to write such an amazing book.”
–Terri McFaddin, author of Only a Woman and Sapphires and Other Precious Jewels

“Every little girl yearns to be ‘daddy’s girl.’ No relationship is more pivotal to a woman’s emotional development and identity than her relationship with her father, and many women have relationship issues because of absent fathers. In a deeply personal account, Pastor Monique Robinson examines the heartaches she faced growing up ‘longing for daddy.’ Her journey to healing, wholeness, and happiness is a must-read for every woman who always wanted to sit on her father’s lap and hear, ‘Never forget your Daddy loves you, no matter what.’ Longing for Daddy is a breakthrough book that is a watershed of revelation, inspiration, and hope.”
–Pamela Perry, newspaper columnist, magazine journalist, and president of American Christian Writers/Detroit

    I really loved the way Monique helped me understand that the reason I was having trouble relating to God was because I was ascribing my earthly father's sinful attributes to God. For me, that meant that God didn't really think I was smart, special, or lovely. God's promises are laced throughout this book, and I still recall those scriptures to mind when I'm having a bad day. I highly recommend this book.

    God really ministered to me through this incredible book. He opened my eyes and brought me to a new level of healing. This book is based on God's Word and it does not deviate from it. I have already discussed it with my close friends and I would recommend it to anyone that was abandoned or abused by their earthly father.
