God, Family, Career — Designating Faithful Priorities

God, Family, Career — Designating Faithful Priorities

Daddy, can you play dinosaurs with me? My oldest son asks me as I’m running out the door for my first appointment of the day. His big blue eyes shine with hope as he anticipates me sitting down and grabbing the triceratops. I’m sorry buddy, daddy has to go to work but we will play when I get home. My heart aches as I close the door of my car, feeling like I let my little boy down.

Dad, You Need To Be Active In Your Children’s Lives

Dad, You Need To Be Active In Your Children's Lives

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” — Proverbs 22:6

Confidence in Fatherhood Stems From The Greatest Father

How can I have confidence in fatherhood when I wasn’t taught how to be one? It’s something I used to ponder on as I transitioned into Fatherhood. I grew up without an active father in my life.

As a father, it’s my job to try and pick up the pieces and encourage him to get back on his feet. Easier said than done most of the time.

How to Have Faith Even When God Says No

Today, we’ll look at how sometimes God says no or “not yet.” Saturday mornings are an excellent time for my daughter to bond as we cook breakfast together. She’s only two years old, so she is usually regulated to grabbing utensils and staring at me while I cook everything. She’s also on duty to make sure the cats don’t get too close and eat the cooked food we take out.

God Delights in His Children

God Delights in His Children

For me, I’m a Dad and a husband, and I love both roles. My most considerable growth as a Christian has been because of being a husband and a father. I’ve been able to understand a lot more about God when I became both roles. I know why God does what He does, why the struggles happened, how He’s capable to love despite our disrespect and cold-shouldered nature.
