A parable about the Hearts of Fathers and Daughters! In this single CD (64 minutes running CD play time) Doug Phillips challenges fathers on the importance of guarding their daughters' hearts at all costs, how to shield them from the pressures of a peer-oriented society and inappropriate romantic relationships, and how to prepare them as a bride - a godly young woman of purity for the young man of their dreams whom God is preparing.
The relationship between a father and daughter is one of many tender, precious, yet often unspoken commitments. He is to be her protector, guide, and a picture of what she will someday hope to see in her own husband. She loves, follows, and gives her heart to him. He is much like the king of a great castle who must cherish and guard this beautiful princess from enemies both foreign and domestic.
But what happens when the king is away on foreign wars, or allows the princess, his most sacred trust, to wander dangerously into enemy lands? What happens when he is unable to answer the most fundamental questions for which every princess needs answers, in order to someday become queens in their own right? What happens when a daughter falls into a deep sleep and is no longer able to communicate with her own father? In this allegorical tale of biblical fatherhood and virtuous womanhood, Douglas Phillips hopes to paint the picture of the beauty of the father-daughter relationship, highlighting the vital necessity for every father to carefully tend to the garden of his daughter's heart.
