Dad was the undisputed leader in our family. Whatever
he thought God wanted him to do, he did. His passion for
reaching the lost and raising his family for the Lord took
us from Minnesota to Utah, Kansas, Texas, and Michigan
As a little girl, I adored Dad. Through my teens, I
admired and respected him. In my twenties, our
relationship became more complicated, especially
after we moved to Virginia and my siblings and I
began to socialize with other young people. Dad didn’t
seem to realize that we older children were no longer
children, his vision for a tight-knit family clashing
with our desire to make more of our own decisions.
I was still loyal to Dad, but when he wanted me to end my
deepening friendship with a young man, what was I to
do? I watched my brother revolt against Dad and knew it
wasn’t right. Then Dad decided to change churches—again.
I Am His Daughter is the fictional story of a young
woman and her relationship with two fathers:
the earthly father she loved so much and the
heavenly Father she learned to trust above all.
