Presentation Transcript

PowerPoint Presentation:

Dear Little One, As I write this, I’m sitting in the makeup aisle of our local Target store. A friend recently texted me from a different makeup aisle and told me it felt like one of the most oppressive places in the world. I wanted to find out what he meant. And now that I’m sitting here, I’m beginning to agree with him. 

PowerPoint Presentation:

Words have  power,  and the words on display in this aisle have a  deep  power. Words and phrases like: Affordably gorgeous Infallible Flawless finish Brilliant strength Liquid power Go nude Age defying Instant age rewind Choose your dream Nearly naked Natural beauty

PowerPoint Presentation:

When you have a daughter you start to realize she’s just as strong as everyone else in the house—a force to be reckoned with, a soul on fire with the same life and gifts and passions as any man. 

PowerPoint Presentation:

But sitting in this store aisle, you also begin to realize most people won’t see her that way. They’ll see her as a pretty face and a body to enjoy. And they’ll tell her she has to look a certain way to have any worth or influence.

PowerPoint Presentation:

…Maybe a father’s words can deliver his daughter through this gauntlet of institutionalized shame and into a deep, unshakeable sense of her own worthiness and beauty.

PowerPoint Presentation:

A father’s words aren’t  different  words, but they are words with a radically different  meaning :

PowerPoint Presentation:

May your strength be not in your  fingernails  but in your  heart . May you discern in your center who you are, and then may you fearfully but tenaciously live it out in the world.

PowerPoint Presentation:

But not from a department store shelf. Find the still-quiet place within you. A real dream has been planted there. 

PowerPoint Presentation:

The world wants you to take your clothes off. Please keep them on. But take your  gloves off. Say what is in your heart… Love a world that barely knows what it means to love itself. Do so nakedly. Openly.

PowerPoint Presentation:

May you be constantly, infallibly aware that infallibility doesn’t  exist . If you choose to seek perfection, may it be in an infallible  grace —for yourself, and for everyone around you.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Your skin will wrinkle and your youth will fade, but your  soul  is ageless. May you always defiantly resist the aging of your  spirit .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Your finish has nothing to do with how your  face  looks today and everything to do with how your  life  looks on your  last  day. May your years be a preparation for that day.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Little One , you love everything pink and frilly and I will surely understand if someday makeup is important to you. But I pray three words will remain  more  important to you—the last three words you say every night, when I ask the question: “ Where are you the most beautiful? ” Three words so bright no concealer can cover them.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Where are you the most beautiful? On the inside. From my heart to yours, Daddy
