My dad and I actually enjoyed fishing together. He did more for me
than help me get my fishhooks out of treetops though. He taught me values,
discipline, appreciation for life and learning, and so much more.
He helped me to recall the simpler times of my youth and the incidents
that shaped my personality. He reminded me that my relationship with
the Heavenly Father is even more important than my relationship

I wish that all daughters could connect with their dads, learning from
them and depending upon them to help them mature into happy young women.
