This year take time out of your busy schedule to rekindle that special relationship with your father or daughter. Fathers and daughters (grades 6 through adult) will enjoy this encouraging weekend of top-notch Biblical teaching and excellent worship times, mixed with just the right amount of bonding activities and relaxing times.
Ride a horse in the national forest, trap shoot, jump off the Leap of Faith, make a craft together, or just go for a walk. Every part of the weekend is intentional with the hopes of giving fathers a chance to be an example to their daughters, with words and actions, of what a Godly man looks like. Take advantage of this great opportunity for making lifelong memories and recharging your spiritual batteries.
