You probably know that I have four daughters.
And that I love these girls all to pieces. Each and every one of them.
They are my dearest friends and the ones I go to when I need prayer or encouragement. Or help. Or even advice, now that they’re getting older.
And coffee. I definitely go to them for coffee.
And they come to me for chocolate.
So you can see that we’re very close, these girls and me.
Even though each one is so different with her own unique personality. With her own individual strengths and weaknesses. And me with mine.
And we talk together and laugh and sometimes cry. Then talk some more and hopefully laugh again.
Because . . . well, because we’re girls, I guess.
And we’re growing up together. These girls and me.
Maybe you’ve got girls too?
If you do, then I’ve gathered some of the words I’ve shared over the last few years about raising daughters and some of the things I’ve learned along the way. Plus a few things from their daddy too. Stuff I hope will encourage and help you with your girls too.

And from a Dad’s Heart:
Growing Up Girls
And now I’m going to tell you something that you already know, but I have to say it anyway.
They grow up fast. These girls.
The next thing you know, she’s a woman and not merely a girl. And not only your daughter, but hopefully your friend too.
Drinking coffee and sharing chocolate together.
Talking, laughing, crying, and praying together.
Because that’s what grown-up girls do. 😉
