I have been blessed with two wonderful daughters. As they entered their teenage years and I realized how brief my time with them was, I wanted to give them something that would remind them who they are and how much I love them. I also wanted to give them advice about some of the most important decisions and events they would face in their lives, and I wanted them to have access to this information even if I was deceased. So I wrote a series of letters over a period of several years. Initially they were intended only for my daughters, but as the project neared completion I realized that women of every age and walk of life—even those who didn’t know their fathers or have particularly good relationships with them—might benefit from the truths contained in these letters, because every woman is a daughter of her Heavenly Father who loves her dearly.
