This episode is a treat. Lisa Harper joins us to talk about her newly released children’s book, Who’s Your Daddy: Discovering the Awesomest Daddy Ever.
But she’s not the only one to join us! After the break, her daughter Missy joins us – along with our kids – to sing and talk about Sid the Science Kid, the Greatest Showman, and Sing. They also talk about God and people they know in heaven. It is a precious portion we decided to keep in. We hope you enjoy the “real” interaction.
The best description of this episode comes directly from the children’s book:
Missy has lived with her new mommy (Lisa) ever since she was adopted from Haiti. But when someone asks little Missy a BIG question—”Who’s your daddy?”—she starts thinking and learning a lot about daddies.
Missy could be sad that she doesn’t have a “skin” daddy who can make her pancakes and take her to soccer practice. But through lots of talks with Mommy, Missy realizes that she DOES have a Daddy! In fact, no matter what our family looks like, we all have the same amazing Daddy; and Missy can’t wait to tell everyone about the Daddy who loves us more than all the stars in the sky.
Told mostly through a mother-daughter conversation, this sweet story is careful to affirm relationships with the good, strong daddies here on earth, but it is also comforting for children who might be struggling due to divorce or the loss of a father.
