Every young woman is the daughter of a king and should be treated as such.
That’s why Sarah Hill and Rick Bundschuh helped organize a weekend event designed to help fathers affirm the value, uniqueness and beauty of their daughters.
Aimed at girls from 11 to 15 years old, the event dubbed “The Coronation” was created by the folks at Kauai Christian Fellowship to help dads instill the depth of both their love and the love of their heavenly Father.
“A father has an extremely important role in the life of his daughter,” said Bundschuh, KCF pastor and whose only daughter is about to be married in February. “His love is expressed differently than that of a mother and his approval is crucial in helping a young woman see herself as someone who is worthy of a man of honor, a man who will care, provide, protect and cherish her.”
“We want to help girls see that a guy should treat them as a priceless vase rather than a disposable cup,” he said.
The weekend is built with the unique father/daughter dynamic in mind.
“Men will find great comradeship in the company of other fathers as well as tangible, practical ways they can help imprint important things on their daughter’s heart in a way that only a dad can,” Bundschuh said. “We hope to answer the questions that beat in the heart of most young women: Who Am I? Am I beautiful? Am I worth pursuing? both through the interaction of their dads and introduction to their Father in heaven.”
For young women whose father is absent, organizers suggest a stepparent, grandparent, uncle or even older brother represent the father to a girl who desires to be part of this experience.
The Coronation is scheduled Jan.27-29 at Camp Hale Koa in Kokee. To register, go to www.kauaichristian.com.
