Disclosure: Many thanks to Pure Flix for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.

 STRONG FATHERS, STRONG DAUGHTERS will be exclusively on Pure Flix starting August 1st! 

STRONG FATHERS, STRONG DAUGHTERS is based on the New York Times Bestselling book written by Dr. Meg Meeker 

 When a wealthy businessman learns, his daughter is engaged to a missionary, he embarks on a quest to keep her closer to home. But when his efforts go awry, he must learn to give up control and trust God with her future. 

This is the perfect film to watch as a family, especially if you have older daughters. 

 Featuring real-life married couples Bart Johnson & Robin Lively and Maria Canals- Barrera & David Barrera 

 “This movie isn't just a heart-warming story. It is a cry from every daughter's heart to her father, to give her the power only he can give to help her become an extraordinary woman.” –Dr. Meg Meeker

 Synopsis: Steve loves all three of his daughters – but does he really know who they are? Discover the heartfelt journey of a dad who is desperately trying to hold onto his little girls but learns he must give up control and trust God with their future. Watch the movie inspired by Dr. Meg Meeker’s best-selling book, “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters.”

There are some really strong themes in this film:

Seeing your children through different phases of life and viewing them through the eyes of others 

What Oz loves about Abby are qualities that Steve did not recognize/realize

 The difficulty of letting go as your children grow and allowing them to live their own lives (trusting them to fly the coop)

 Competition between dad and future son-in-law Who is in control? Us or God?

 Parenting is about being present and available and encouraging them to pursue their own dreams

 Forgiveness Acknowledging mistakes were made in order to change and grow

 Seeing past your own expectations and allowing people to discover their own gifts and own path in life 

 Bible Verses that really tie into the film:

 Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. – Psalms 127:3 (NIV) 

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. - Proverbs 22:6 (NIV) 

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. - Ephesians 6:4 (NIV) Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged. - Colossians 3:21 (NIV)

 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. - 3 John 4 (NIV) 

As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him. - Psalm 103:13 (NIV)

 All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace. -Isaiah 54:13 (NIV) 

I know I'm a mother not a father and that I have sons not daughters, but this movie had such a strong message that I feel all parents can relate too. We have all had our ups and downs.  We have all questioned our choices, I love that this movie is real and deals with real emotions and struggles.
