Happy Father's Day and Thank You


If you are a man, directly responsible for the welfare of a young person then you are a father. Some of us are biologically the reason they are here, but some of us have invited them into our lives to be cared for. Either way we have an opportunity to be a part of someone’s life and to help them make it through.


We’re important, so don’t take it lightly.

Here’s an acronym I came up with to help remind us of the role we have the privilege of living.


Faithful, be there when you are supposed to be and do what you say you will do.

Available, never be too busy for your family.

Together, you and their mother are a team. Loving your wife is the first step toward loving your child.

Hands On, drop the remote control and be present in their life.

Example, give them something positive to see and talk about. They’re watching you.

Responsible, be dependable and make sure they are cared for.


You say, this looks tough? Yes, I agree.


Like anything worth doing it’s going to take some focus and effort. By the way, this isn’t like one of those dare devil tricks where you are cautioned against trying it at home. Home is exactly where you should try this. However, don’t try to do this alone. Start by praying and asking God to give you the special insights, patience and strength you need. Talk to your wife and get her perspectives and take time to encourage her in her role. And talk to other Dad’s.

Remember, other Dads are average guys, so give us call if you need encouraging.


Proverbs 1:8: "Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching."


Proverbs 22:6: "Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it."
