I really loved the show. It had real-life situations, that any parent I’m sure has been, or will be a part of. It shows a different way to look at life and actually cherish the tantrums, or door slamming that may happen. The one part that brought me to tears was the other Dad saying that “daughters are something we can’t hold on to forever.” Wow, that was deep, when you’re watching what is happening in the movie. I really like this one, and would definitely recommend it to everyone. There are teachable moments, even if you aren’t a father, a parent, or involved with children. It makes you look at your own life a little differently, and can help in even just basic social skills. I loved it!
About Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters:
The Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters movie has a great plot. 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 New York Times best-selling book, “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters.”
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.
As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him. – Psalm 103:13 (NIV)
Review from PRNNewsWire:
The new movie stars real-life married couples Robyn Lively and Bart Johnson; and Maria Canals-Barrera and David Barrera. The cast also includes Brandon Prado, Carrie Wampler, Kayla DiVenere and Arden Myrin.
“I’m so excited for people to see Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters,” said star Robyn Lively. “Bart and I had such a wonderful experience working together for the first time as a married couple. Our real-life roles as parents have been the most important and rewarding of all! We cherish the special bond that we have with our own kids. I hope that this film is a sweet reminder of what matters most in life, family,” she continued.
Robyn’s husband Bart echoed those sentiments: “When I read this script, I thought; ‘This is my life.’ With all the good times, struggles, coaching my kids’ soccer teams and tripping through the wires trying to be the best father I can be. I’ll have my kids under my roof for just a small window of time. I remind myself that every day I do my best to not take that for granted. Robyn and I joke about how much we miss them and they aren’t even empty nesters.”
Bart and Robin play Connie and Steve, parents to Abby, Zoey and Bridget in the movie. Abby surprises both her parents when she returns from a mission trip and announces she’s engaged. Can Steve let go of the big dreams he had for her and support her in this new adventure?
“Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters communicates the profound transformation that occurs deep within a father when he realizes, perhaps for the first time, how critical he is to his daughter’s happiness and success,” said author Dr. Meg Meeker. “It counters everything a father is taught about his influence on his daughter: his inability to understand her, his limitations in impacting her happiness and his ineffectiveness in raising her to be strong. This movie will turn any father’s insecurity into power. This movie isn’t just a heartwarming 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. Meeker continued.
