Overview

Your father.

Did he love you enough? Did you feel safe with him?

Do you think of him and long for something more?

Did your relationship with him leave you feeling abandoned, used or unlovable? Has that heartbreak left you with bitterness, low self-esteem, and shame?

Sundi Jo knows this pain. She journaled her way through the childhood wounds that left her with a fortress around her heart and her life on the edge of ruin. With each entry, you can hear God's pursuit of her. Turn the pages and find yourself nodding in agreement with her questions, her fear, "Am I beautiful? Am I lovable? Is something wrong with me?"

Dear Dad, Did You Know I Was a Princess? is a memoir of gritty redemption written in love to the dad who missed the chance to really see his daughter.

Don't miss this incredible eyewitness account of God as Father to the fatherless. See His power to overcome what would otherwise destroy a young and innocent heart, even your heart.

    Dear Dad was a vivid account of a young girl’s life in dealing with the memories of her relationship with her father. Sundi Jo, goes through very descriptive stories that bring you write into the room with her as she deals with denial, alcoholism, friendships, sisterhood, and a daughter wanting to be redeemed.
    At times you will have to remind yourself that this is not an intriguing fiction write up but rather a very true story that tells of coming to Christ through the courage of letting go of addiction.
    Sundi Jo tells her story honestly and leaves no reason to doubt. It reminded me that (as a friend once told me) it is crucial to not only enthusiastically receive the sinner to Christ but to not judge the new or experienced Christian when dealing with sin. We all have times of trial and have opportunities to deal in the best or easiest way possible. Sometimes neither of those ways is God’s way. “BUT GOD”, as we say is a faithful redeemer, who goes out and leads his stray sheep back to the right track by using His healing power through His word and His love as expressed through friends servants of God, and family that love us. If you love happy endings, you will not be displeased!

    Dear Dad

    In a series of letters to her Father Sundi Jo shows a struggle with some of life's most gripping problems. Through abuse by others and herself she asks the question of God "Why?" Like so many of us she refuses to hear His answer. She tries to fight the fight on her own. Until she finally is shown she cannot and is not supposed to fight alone.

    Dear Dad is a gripping account of how far down you can go when the negative takes over your world. When the positive is blurred so much it seems nothing more than an illusion. It shows that sometimes something very bad has to happen before the good can come to light. How you can seem to totally lose yourself and then be brought back from the edge of reality. How with God anything is possible. It shows us that God will never leave us nor forget us. Even when we seem to leave and forget Him. It made me cry, it made me smile, but most of all it made me remember what is most important. God is always in charge whether you want Him to be or not.

    I was given a free copy for providing a review.

    Touching and inspiring look inside a yearlong road of pain, grow

    Touching and inspiring look inside a yearlong road of pain, growth, healing, hope, and acceptance.

    Dear Dad is a series of letters written in her journal to the author’s deceased father and our heavenly Father.
     These letters are written with the bared truth and pain that only someone who lived through it would be able
     to write and express. Sundi shares writings from a journal written over the course of a year spent as a
    sometimes not so willing resident of a small women’s recovery facility. This open and honest glimpse into the
    thoughts and prayers penned in her journal brings the reader into the complicated world of healing from
    addiction, abuse, rape, denial, failed or broken relationships, and just about every other pain a person can
    experience. The journey is not a straight line, not neat and pretty, not story book. I admire Sundi for staying
    true to her journal writings, and letting the work be honest. I get the feeling that she has not taken any poetic
    license in the publishing of this book. Some people may not “get it”, but for me, it is a story of hope, and one
     that is anchored in belief in God, and His infinite grace. Sundi shows that we are never fully grown as
    Christians. As a struggling Christian, reading gave me hope for my own growth, and in turn that hope helps
    me stay facing toward God when I am confused, discouraged, or stumble.
     I highly recommend the book, as a “must read”, for men, for women, for parents, for adult children, for
    anyone who has been abused, neglected, ignored, addicted, or knows someone who has.
