The Father/Daughter Purity Ball will be held at The Castle at Ashley Manor, Chandler, AZ on September 10.
Hosted by New Life Pregnancy Center, a ministry of the Arizona Baptist Children’s Services, these unique events are intended to help fathers begin or reinforce a meaningful relationship their daughters.
According to their website (http://www.dadineedyou.com), attending a Purity Ball will help instill the principles and strength that daughters will need to protect her heart and body until she commits to a man on her wedding day.
If you are a father, you are the most important male relationship and role model your daughter has until she gets married.
As a father, one of the best ways to help her attain this commitment is to pursue a close relationship with her. She needs to know that you love her and that she is beautiful. Your daughter is growing up, and whether she is approaching the teens years or already in them, this event will have a positive impact!
There are at least four (4) ways that fathers can connect with their daughters.
1. Schedule a regular daddy/daughter date, maybe once a month or every other month. Go do something fun just the two of you to reconnect.
2. Pick a time to do something with her that she really enjoys-maybe cooking, volleyball, a concert, board games-you get the idea! It doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive, but it will show her that you are interested in what she is interested in, and that you enjoy spending time with her.
3. Start a father/daughter journal and write notes to each other and leave the notebook in a special place. It may be easier to say things in writing.
4. Compliment her at least once a day. Make your compliments about who she is as a person, her heart and character. Maybe let her know you appreciate her smile or a kind heart gesture that you saw her do. Speak to her about the good attributes you see in her or that she is developing as a young woman. It is nice for her to know that she is beautiful, but focus on who she is, not what she looks like.
In this day and age where morals and ethics are being replaced by “whatever is right, do it”, it is important for some of us to stand for what is right, even if (and/or when) we stand alone.
