Author, Adria King, writes about the aftermath of losing her dad at young age and reassures readers that everything we think we lost can be found in Jesus.
How do you navigate growing up without an earthly father present as a young girl?
At eight years old, just a month after her father passed away from cancer, Adria King was given a letter signed, “Love always, Dad.” She tucked it away in her nightstand and read it often when she was desperate to hear his voice. Years later, she would find that her dad had started the letter, but he never finished it. She wanted her dad’s voice to guide her through the milestones of life that every girl faces: playing sports, graduating high school, choosing a college, her wedding day, and so on. She needed to know how to navigate growing up without a father.
Adria came to understand that she was not alone – that there are other girls, in some cases grown women, trying to find their way without a dad. Whether your father is absent because of death, divorce, sickness, or abuse…whether your father is emotionally unavailable or if you’ve just longed to know more intimately the embrace of your loving heavenly Father—this is her letter to you. This is her story—proof that God can recraft the shattered pieces of a life marked by loss. In It is Written Adria invites you to read her story of discovering that she does have a Father—a heavenly Father—and He has always been writing her story.
