Book Review - She Still Calls Me Daddy

She Still Calls Me Daddy
Author - Robert Wolgemuth
Publisher - Thomas Nelson

I was curious as to what Mr. Wolgemuth would share about daughters getting married since our youngest, a 23 year old daughter, is the only one left at home. This book caught my eye because I know that it is probably only a matter of time before this lovely young woman meets her Mr. Right. I'm happy to report that Mr. Wolgemuth has a lot to say - and it all comes from his heart and his experience. Both of his daughters are married, and he shares his thoughts and practical advice on how to relate to a married daughter. Although aimed at fathers, I found this candid book offered great tips and insight that a mom can use too. One of our two sons is married, and I noticed that Mr. Wolgemuth's emotions and experiences with his daughters mirrored ours with our son. Chapters cover everything from saying goodbye to the way things used to be, to embracing the new son-in law, to parents and their conduct. He even covers special circumstances such as divorce and other issues. His friendly tone and humor addresses an important topic that helps parents to prepare for and/or deal with their married daughters (and sons!). I give it a definite thumbs up. :)
