GirlDad: A Father/Daughter Duo Discuss Truths that Impact a Girl's Heart, Mind, and Spirit By Jay Payleitner, Rae Anne Payleitner Cover Image
Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now


The relationship between a father and daughter is profound. Jay and Rae Anne Payleitner share their own insights into this sometimes complicated but ultimately fulfilling relationship. Rooted in Scripture and full of stories, this book will deepen dads’ and daughters’ appreciation for one another.

The relationship between a father and daughter can be uniquely close and utterly mystifying. But an active and prepared father can make all the difference in a growing daughter's life. This book helps a father see not only the princess in his daughter, but the person, the sinner, the friend, the stranger, the challenger, enabling him to accompany her on her life’s journey.

Rae Anne Payleitner grew up as the youngest of five children and only girl born, to author Jay Payleitner and his wife Rita in St. Charles, Illinois. She loved growing up in the chaos of a close, large family, and took the lessons of her siblings and parents with her into the world. She attended the United States Military Academy at West Point and lived for four years in Dublin, Ireland, before returning to the suburbs of Chicago, where she now works as a strategist for a technology company. If Rae Anne isn't spending her time chasing around her nieces and nephews, she is writing, listening to Pat Hughes on Cubs Radio, or being just the right amount of competitive at Bar Trivia.
