I think Greg Wright may have stolen this idea from my dad! Not really, I think that God speaks to godly men when they truly seek Him. I wanted to read this book specifically because my father "dated" my sister and me. It is a concept that my parents came up with when we were kids and honestly, it works! My sister and I both have high expectations of what a future spouse should be. Hers are so high, she never plans on marrying, but don't blame that on the dates.
I remember people looking at me strangely when I would tell them about "dating" my dad, because our world doesn't understand the concept of dating to connect with a person on a deeper level, but rather our world sees dating as a means to an end. (While I'm talking about this, if you aren't "dating" your spouse, you need to commit to doing that too!) This book is filled with ways to understand and communicate with your daughter. Wright is humorous and heartfelt in his accounts of his experiences. It is an easy read that will help not only fathers better communicate, but is a great read for moms too.
Oh, and if you are a single guy looking for dating tips....pick up this book too! Follow his 2 rules of dating, no dinner and no movie...come up with something original that she would like to do that doesn't involve staring at something other than her and you will do well with women!
I received this book FREE via Booksneeze for the purpose of this review, and no other monetary compensation was received. All opinions are 100% mine.
