Offering understanding and hope to women who suffer from the absence of a loving father.
Author: Lois Mowday
Very Good to Almost Like New Condition
Are you a daughter without a dad?
Maybe your father died years ago, and you still wrestle with the ways things were between you.
Maybe your father lives in the same house with you, but he is emotionally distant.
Maybe your parents are divorced, so your relationship with your father is always changing and uncertain.
Maybe you have stepparents and stepsisters and stepbrothers who complicate everything in your life.
Maybe your father left decades ago, but you still have many ghosts, including unanswered questions and poorly understood emotions.
Establishing her framework from the Bible, public media, literature, statistics, and case studies, Lois Mowday profiles the father role and the father-daughter relationship.
Mowday contends that when the father is absent -- through death, divorce, desertion, or workaholism - a daughter loses more than just a father. She loses his affection, his counsel, his acceptance, and many of the other physical and psychological benefits a child needs and should enjoy. But her losses aren't confined to childhood, however. According to Mowday, a daughter's identity and well-being as an adult are affected as well.
After detailing the effects of a daughter's growing up without a loving father, Mowday discusses the impact of other relationships and talks about how women can find understanding and healing. And she gives particular attention to the role of the church and its leadership in befriending the fatherless and being a source of practical hope.
"There are no easy answers or pat solutions offered here," says Mowday. "But simply looking at some aspects of your life -- your loss, your response, your current network of relationships, you relationship with God as your heavenly Father -- will help you in the process of moving toward healing."
