Father / daughter wedding dance video – Cinderella by Steven Curtis Chapman

I shared this on Facebook and people seemed to enjoy it so I thought I’d post it here as well.

My oldest daughter just got married.  Here is the video from the father/bride dance. The only thing better than watching my daughters dance is dancing with them.

This song was extra-special to us. Aside from beautifully capturing some of my key parenting strategies (spend lots of time with your kids and don’t be afraid to get into their world, and prepare them to go off with a great guy for life a la Genesis 2), my daughter actually had the role of Cinderella in a ballet when she was a Senior. And in a nepotism-at-its-best manner, I played her father onstage. So this was the perfect song for our dance.

I have to admit that when I first heard this Stephen Curtis Chapman song on the radio I quickly turned it off, thinking it was too sentimental. Then when she was going to play Cinderella my wife encouraged me to listen to it. It has become one of my favorites since then. And we love the Viennese Waltz dance that goes with it.

I danced with Cinderella . . . three minutes of Heaven. Thanks be to Jesus!

Take your roles as husbands and fathers very seriously.  You’ll be glad you did.
