Dear Dad by Sundi Jo

About the Book:

Your father. Did he love you enough? Did you feel safe with him? Do you think of him and long for something more? Did your relationship with him leave you feeling abandoned, used or unlovable? Has that heartbreak left you with bitterness, low self-esteem, and shame? Sundi Jo knows this pain. She journaled her way through the childhood wounds that left her with a fortress around her heart and her life on the edge of ruin. With each entry, you can hear God's pursuit of her. Turn the pages and find yourself nodding in agreement with her questions, her fear, ""Am I beautiful? Am I lovable? Is something wrong with me?"" Dear Dad, Did You Know I Was a Princess? is a memoir of gritty redemption written in love to the dad who missed the chance to really see his daughter. Don't miss this incredible eyewitness account of God as Father to the fatherless. See His power to overcome what would otherwise destroy a young and innocent heart, even your heart.

My Review:

I cried when I read this book. the raw emotions, the hold nothing back let the world see the real me writing was inspiring to say the least. I felt like I was reading part of my own story. I grew up with a alcoholic mother and a absent father, was molested by my uncle and held it in till I got saved. I can relate so much to what Sundi Jo wrote it was mind blowing. The book is deeply personal and is conveyed with so much truth about who God is and what He does for us daily.

I was inspired with the deep emotional connection between Sundi Jo, her friends and church community. It reminds me of a verse in Eccelsiates 4: 9-12:
9 Two are better than one,
    because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
    one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
    and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
    But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
    two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

How fortunate life is when we have solid friends who are their to pick up up by our coat tails and force us down the righteous path for our own good. This book is heartwarming, funny, relatable, engaging and full of love. Beautifuly wrote and timeless I would recommend this book to anyone who feels broken and lost and needs an ounce of hope for a better tomorrow.
