Fathers and Daughters

March 24, 2006

If you are wondering where everyone is today and what they are doing, here is my best guess:

Mark is in Cambridge, England, and you can be sure he’s not thinking about March Madness.

Wherever Al is right now, he is doing at least 5 things at once and doing them all equally well. Don’t even think about trying this. Mere mortals cannot do this.

Lig is no doubt leading a meeting somewhere (although he is thinking about March Madness). And no one leads a meeting more effectively than Lig, which is why Lig is the president of 16 different Christian ministries and counting.

And me, well, I am just happy as can be, because Duke lost last night.

On a serious note, let me take this opportunity to thank all the readers of our blog for your encouraging comments. Although we can’t respond to all of the comments (thanks for your understanding), we do read each one and your encouragement has been very meaningful.

In light of recent posts I’ve written for fathers and sons, there have been requests for similar practical advice for fathers and daughters. My wife, Carolyn, and oldest daughter, Nicole, wrote a book entitled Girl Talk: Mother-Daughter Conversations on Biblical Womanhood, and they asked me to address a chapter to fathers and daughters.

Did I mention that Duke lost? Oh happy day!
