In Daddy's Delight, Karia Bunting reminds women that they are God's workmanship, His masterpiece, His "poema". That God has intricately woven together every fiber of their being and created each one special and unique. That God, having completed His work of art, gave her to mankind as a gift.
Evident in this great care God took in fashioning woman is the importance and value of each one. So why do so many women struggle with God's design, wishing they could change just this or that one thing about themselves?
Bunting challenges each reader to accept and embrace the fact that, in whatever season of life, she is God's masterpiece-not her own work of art. When God sees her, He sees His beautiful creation. A creation that yes, has some wrinkles needing to be smoothed out and yet, is one in whom is His delight to love to perfection.
Daddy's Delight is a straightforward, unapologetically Biblical book about the role of women. Bunting addresses each facet of womanhood: single, married, mothers, working/career women, and women in ministry.
Bunting discusses how we can prepare ourselves in service in each of these areas, teaching about the biblical instructions for each category. She includes a few examples from her life and the lives of other women, but the bulk of the book is her own teachings about the roles of women--their divine design, to borrow from the subtitle.
To be honest, I thought this book would be more about finding my divine design, not being told what my biblical role is. I was a little disappointed in that regard.
Nevertheless, the book is easy to understand, well-thought-out and written, and heavily researched with Scripture.
