"The influence of a godly man is crucial in the development of a girl's self-esteem, and this relationship will set a pattern for the attributes in men she will seek as an adult. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to set, or reiterate, the standard for how you believe she deserves to be treated, and to let her know that anything less is unacceptable for her as a woman."
Oh, how I wish I could have been a fly on the wall at the dance. :)
My Dad never took me to a dance, but we did spend time together on the weekends going to the library, running errands, and going to the video arcade. I treasure those memories of one-on-one time with him.
I loved all the little details of Ava's outfit...the frilly socks, the matching bows, the beautiful corsage. My husband must have spent over 30 minutes ironing his shirt!:)
