We have a lot of new dad or new again dad’s that are a part of this AO.  As a father of 5…I want to give you some encouragement as to some ways to be a good dad.

“A father is a thing that is forced to endure childbirth without an anesthetic…. A father never feels worthy of the worship in a child’s eyes. He’s never quite the hero his daughter thinks, never quite the man his son believes him to be, and this worries him, sometimes. So he works too hard to try and smooth out the rough places in the road for those of his own who will follow him….Fathers are what give daughters away to other men who aren’t nearly good enough, so they can have grandchildren who are smarter than anybody’s. Fathers make bets with insurance companies about who’ll live the longest. One day they lose and the bet’s paid off to the part of them they leave behind.” –Paul Harvey

  1. (Proverbs 22:6) tells us It’s our responsibility to “train up a child in the way he/she should go.” Not the school, not the government, but us…the Dads.
  2. Dads spend time with their children (Deut. 6: 6-9)
    dads must engage their children in the kind of deep, heart-to-heart conversations that impart more than facts, but teach wisdom. Schedule some regular “conversational walks” with your children, one on one. Family time that counts.
  3. Dads pray for their children (1 Chronicles 29:19)
    King David prayed for his son, Solomon. Children who know without any doubt that their dads pray for them every day own a deep sense of love and security.

Great mumblechatter today during the work.  We worked hard, but we did it as a unit.

During COT – Enjoyed discussing ways to be the “Dad” our kids want, need and what they are asking for.  HIMs…take time to play with your kids…take time to talk to your kids.

Prayer Requests:

  • Jennings Family
  • Hadley
  • Being a Dad- Work Life Balance
  • Bailout – leading on Emmaus Walk this weekend.
