Dad-deVotionals! Every week right here!

I am super excited about this y’all. (Yes, I just said, “y’all”. I live in the Midwest, right?)

Starting this week, I will be posting a weekly devotional for Dads! Dad-deVotionals, I like to call them. (See what I did there? Daddy = Dad-de, clever right? Ok, never mind.)

Just a little encouragement, based in Scripture, from my heart to dads. Being a dad is difficult and we could all use a little help now and again.

So come on back every week and share with other Dads that could use an encouraging word.

My Worst Mistake as a Dad

Well, maybe not my WORST...

Our most recent arrival (number 13) is three months old today. After having so many babies around for the last 17 years, I guess you could say we have become somewhat experienced on baby raising.

How Being a Creeper Brought Me Closer to My Kids

trampoline, closer to my kids

I don’t usually like to focus on the weaknesses and shortcomings of others. I have plenty of my own to fill up these pages. And while that may be painful, if becoming vulnerable and stripping off the facade brings just a little encouragement to those struggling to Lead their Imperfect Family (hint: we all are), […]

“After these messages…

We'll be ri-i-ight back."

Remember that little jingle from back in the day. Saturday morning cartoons were the best! I have been silent as a tomb here since before Thanksgiving. Unforgivable, I know. There are a myriad of reasons why. A few of which you can read over on Facebook. But I won’t bore you with my complaining.   […]

So who else loves being called Dad?

It's pretty great isn't it?

They called me...Dad.

By today’s standards, I was young. Some would say I was too young to get married at only 20 years old. It seems the average 20 year old today is still learning to lace his shoes correctly. Pile on the responsibility of marriage and most would probably run the other way. It makes me feel […]
