On the Topic of Dads

There are few things that have the ability to impact the lives of people as much as the complicated relationship of father and child.

It’s a big deal, this dad thing. Even most babies say “dada” as their first word. (Which hardly seems fair after all the work mamas have put in by that point!)

Whether good, bad, or non-existent, the father child relationship molds us. It shapes our views about God, and influences our beliefs about the dynamics of how men and women relate.

I can’t say that the whole of my father experiences are great, but the ones I have in the here and now are good. I can live in the here and now and be grateful. Grateful for a father that participates in the here and now, and grateful for the father of my children who cares most of all about their spiritual well-being.

Being a Dad can’t be easy, so here’s to you dads out there. Though your job may be one of the most difficult ones, it’s also one of the most important.

  1. Love this, Beth!
    Your perspective always amazes me. You are one of the strongest, but most tender women I know.
    And your family of boys is just very extremely handsome. 🙂

  2. Awesome post. Happy Father’s Day to Steven.
