Several months ago, I applied to review a product for Pumpkin Seed Press. I do that all the time :) Anyway, the reviewer contract and form came in the mail just before we moved, so I didn't submit it until after Christmas. I had to choose a book and knowing almost nothing about their products (they come recommended from a friend, but that is it) I chose The Three Weavers.
I had NO idea what the book was about. When it came I skimmed the cover and then set it down......why? Because it is a Father's Guide to Guarding His Daughter's Purity. In case you hadn't noticed, I am a mother, not a father. And our daughter is not quite two. Hmmmm.
But I had AGREED to review this book so I took it to work with me last week. I honestly expected to muddle through it and write the review and hope to never hear from Pumkin Seed Press again.
Boy, was I in for a wonderful surprise! I couldn't. put. the. book. down. (It is a blessing that I don't have a very demanding part time job. LOL) Yes, the book is for fathers. Yes it is for the father to work through with his 9-12 year old daughter. No, I am not a father or a 9-12 year old daughter. I WISH that my dad had done something like this with me. I wonder what heartache I would have been saved. I wonder how close our relationship would be now, if he had taken the time to invest his heart into my life like this.
But I digress. The "story" part of this book is an allegory about 3 weavers and their daughters. I'm not going to ruin it for you. It is wonderful! Anyway, each little section of the story is followed by discussion questions for the father/daughter and a Bible study for the father to do alone (before going through that section with his daughter). There are small projects for each to complete along the way, all designed to tie their hearts together forever and teach wonderful truths of purity to young daughters.
Designed to last through 7 weeks, this study is totally complete and ready to use. I KNOW how busy dads are. My dear husband would never have the time to do this if it wasn't all set up for him. As I read through this book, though, I believe that he could and would do this with our daughter when she is old enough. Ending with a family purity ceremony, I can't think of any little girl that wouldn't love to spend this one on one time with her daddy.
Available from Pumpkin Seed Press, The Three Weavers, is a wonderful book on the study of purity and encourages fathers and daughters to a deeper relationship, mirrored by the relationship we all have with our Heavenly Father. I can't be more pleased that I was able to read through this resource and look forward to using it in the future. If you would also like a copy it is available for $10.50 HERE. I can't wait to see what other products Pumpkin Seed Press has available for our family.
