The Book

Our game-changing inspirational book The Fatherless Daughter Project: Understanding Our Losses and Reclaiming Our Lives will be published by Avery of Penguin Random House in Spring 2016. This book will inspire women in a brand new way and blow the lid off the stigma of being fatherless. We are telling it like it is to help daughters lead amazing, triumphant lives!


The Documentary

The Fatherless Daughter Project takes a never-before-seen look at the lives of a very private sisterhood. It tells the powerful stories of Fatherless Daughters in their own words, exploring the emotional and relational impact of father loss through the years. This is as real as it gets.


The Movement

We are not only writing a book and producing a documentary, we are starting a movement. This is just the beginning of our relationship with you and the impact that we want to have on the millions of daughters affected by fatherlessness. We have big plans!
