At the 2008 Father Daughter Discipleship Retreat speakers Doug Phillips, Scott Brown, Geoffrey Botkin and daughters Anna Sophia and Elizabeth Botkin brought six messages that were filled with biblical exhortation, practical advice and vision for biblical father daughter relationships. The issues addressed included how a daughter should relate to every member of her family, how to prepare for marriage to a godly courageous man, what a true beauty looks like, the Proverbs 31 woman, and how fathers are to protect the daughters in their home. Every message painted the picture of the biblical woman God wants each of us to become and aim for to His glory.
It took me several weeks to get through this set, there was just so much to chew on. I have read several books on the subject of biblical womanhood, yet I still find I need the fresh encouragement as it is a subject so highly contended not just in the culture of the world but the church as well. As I listened I was exhorted, I learned new things, I renewed my vision for what God wants me to become, and I was rebuked for where I have failed. All of the CDs were good, but if I were to pick a favorite it would be the message by Scott Brown on the Proverbs 31 woman. He presented 12 key principles from Proverbs 31 that should be the mark of a godly woman, I found this especially helpful in guiding me as I seek to educate and prepare my self toward that ideal.
If you too are looking for encouragement as a daughter remaining at home or are just catching the vision to return to your father's house you will find this set a great blessing. It would also be great if you and your father could listen to it together. To read more about this set or purchase it click this link to the Vision Forum website.
