Letter To My Daughter Upon Entering Middle School

I still remember the joy I felt when I first saw you, a beautiful little daughter, a blessing from God.

Over the years since then, Iíve come to love you more and more. Iím so proud to be your father.

I also remember the joy I felt when you were born the second time, into the family of God. Sitting with you in your room as you prayed to accept Christ was one of the proudest moments of my life.

Now that youíre becoming a beautiful young woman and are headed to middle school, I want to share with you my hopes for your future.

First and foremost, I pray that you will always love God and honor Him in all that you do. Read His word every day and go to Him in prayer. We can do nothing worthwhile in life apart from God so we must stay in contact with Him daily.

Secondly I pray that you and I will always be close. Feel free to come to me with any question, problem or good thing you need to share. Iíll always be there for you.

Thirdly I pray that you will choose your friends wisely. Maintain close friendships with other Christians. Your sisters in Christ will be some of your biggest helpers as you go through middle school. Treat non-believers you come in contact with the way Christ would have you treat them, influencing them but never being influenced by them.

Finally, I pray that you will take the talents and gifts God has given you and use them to the best of your ability to honor Him and share His message with the world. Choose what you do with your life not based just on what you want to do but what can most effectively serve our Lord. Donít worry, if you choose that way, it will be fun too!

I couldnít love you more if I tried! I trust God for your future and ask you to always remember His love and the love your mother and I have for you as you go through life.

May God richly bless you in middle school!

Love,

Dad

John 15:4-8

Lawrence, this is such a beautiful thing to do for your daughter. I hope she treasures it forever and takes your words to heart. I hated letting go of my daughter, but had to trust her in God's hands. Good job.
