Something Close to my Heart…

Picture

Saw this from a friend’s post (thx Tony for reposting). U.S. Census Bureau through 2015.

Going to be real here…We NEED more fathers to be present in their kids lives. PRESENCE is WAY more important than presents. Children’s love language is NOT stuff, it is quality time. They need to be told that you love them, that you believe in them, that you have their back no matter what. That there is nothing they cannot accomplish if they believe in themselves, because you do.

This world is falling apart because I hear no one talking about family values anymore. There is ZERO leadership coming from government. It is NOT their responsibility, it is ours to raise our children properly. Who is really talking about this stuff. Well, I AM. A strong family unit, founded on God’s principles & His way of doing things will give our kids an amazing foundation to build on.

My passion is to play a role in helping more dads rise up to the challenge to lead their children by example, to show them what winning in ALL areas of life looks like, that it is NOT weak to lean on God, that it is a sign of wisdom & strength to seek out help. To teach our children to be respectful of others & to be thankful & appreciative for those things they have. To pursue excellence in all areas of life through personal growth & personal development. That serving other people is what brings true peace, joy & fulfillment.

Life is too short & we have a responsibility to grow with our children. Memories, experiences & solid relationships are vital to their ability to grow into mature, responsible, respectful adults…
