Fathers

My father was the man who meant more to me than anyone in my life. I always thought it would be the best job in the world, and I was right, but it is not without challenges I could never have imagined.  Being a dad of two daughters, I am fully aware of the stresses, struggles and unbelievable joys that come with fatherhood.

 

Dads have a unique place in our culture.  We are tasked with incredible responsibility, but are often touted as exceptional when all we are doing is what we should be doing as a parent…It can lead to feelings of inadequacy.  You work as hard as you can- at your job and in your family- to be the father you want to be, but sometimes you need additional support to help fulfill that goal of being the father that your kids deserve, and being the partner with your significant other.

"Fatherly love is the act of giving your life for the sake of someone else's needs."
