Overview

Where Was Daddy When You Needed Him?

The absence of fathers is an epidemic plaguing our society, affecting families from every corner of our world and from all walks of life. Whether our fathers left us entirely during our childhood or were physically present but emotionally distant, those who missed out on an affirming, intimate father-love continue to experience the devastating consequences of that loss.

• Are you angry at the world and don’t know why?
• Do you inadvertently sabotage relationships or smother those closest to you?
• Do you rarely take risks or step out on faith?
• Is there an undercurrent of anxiety in most tasks you perform?
• Do you struggle to connect with God?
• Do you have little or no self-confidence–or minimal self-worth?

For women who answer yes to these questions, the common denominator is often an absent father. Far too many daughters have been stripped of a healthy relationship with their earthly dad. But real healing is within your reach.

Discover how the absence of your father has impacted your entire life–your attitude, your actions, your beliefs, your decisions, and your identity–and learn how you can stop resulting negative behaviors, beak free, and experience a confidence-building, empowering love that will heal your hurts and fulfill your deepest longings.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The father issue affects the very core of a woman’s life. Monique Robinson has done a fine job of addressing this very special relationship between a woman and her father by giving those who have struggled in this area practical principles for healing unreconciled wounds and reminding us that God is the only perfect Father.”
–Michelle McKinney Hammond, author of In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man

“In Longing for Daddy, Monique Robinson compassionately and insightfully helps women recover from the devastations of failed fathering. Through self-examination, inspiration, and prayer, readers learn to break free of their negative behaviors and embrace real healing. A must-read for those serious about journeying toward spiritual maturity.”
–Ronn Elmore, Psy.D, author of An Outrageous Commitment: The 48 Vows of an Indestructible Marriage

“For those women who know the pain of having been wounded or rejected by their father, Monique Robinson has unlocked the secret door that leads us to understanding, healing, forgiveness, and in some cases restoration.  I thank God that she was inspired to write such an amazing book.”
–Terri McFaddin, author of Only a Woman and Sapphires and Other Precious Jewels

“Every little girl yearns to be ‘daddy’s girl.’ No relationship is more pivotal to a woman’s emotional development and identity than her relationship with her father, and many women have relationship issues because of absent fathers. In a deeply personal account, Pastor Monique Robinson examines the heartaches she faced growing up ‘longing for daddy.’ Her journey to healing, wholeness, and happiness is a must-read for every woman who always wanted to sit on her father’s lap and hear, ‘Never forget your Daddy loves you, no matter what.’ Longing for Daddy is a breakthrough book that is a watershed of revelation, inspiration, and hope.”
–Pamela Perry, newspaper columnist, magazine journalist, and president of American Christian Writers/Detroit

    Misleading

    The title of the book is a little misleading. I didn't careful note that it was written by a pastor. Religion is pushed more than actually the understanding of the missing relationship between father & daughter.

    Life-changing book

    This book changed my life forever. It was so refreshing to hear someone speak on the issue of absent fathers, especially an African-American woman. I was connected to this book more than I'd ever dreamed. God used Mrs. Robinson as a venue to heal wounds caused by a missing dad. If you earnestly pray and seek God for healing and restoration concerning your relationship with your father, you will get it. My father cannot have a relationship with me, but I now have a peace about it. God is in control. Thank you Mrs. Robinson!
