How’d it go? Did you share your most mischievous prank pulled on someone else or your favorite television show growing up?
Those were just a couple of the questions we started with last week as we embarked on the “Leave a Lasting Legacy project”. If you are just joining us, check out this post, Leaving a Legacy For Our Children-Week 1. I know that sometimes if you miss the start of something you feel like why start. But, in a TIVO/DVR age, we should be used to picking something up after it’s began and catching up. Consider this your TIVO blog opportunity. Go back to last weeks post, buy or create a journal and answer those questions. Shouldn’t take you more than 15-20 minutes. Remember the intent of this is to leave a journal for our children that someday they can read and get a more fully orbed view of us as their father, both the good and the not-so-good. And, hopefully it will allow us to have some deeper discussions with them before we become a memory in a journal :).
Ready for this weeks questions? Here they are:
- What were some crazy fads from your school days? Did you participate in them? Why or why not?
- Who was your favorite teacher (any grade)? How did that teacher influence you?
- Did you ever have a special hideaway or clubhouse? Describe it for me.
- In high school, what extracurricular activities did you enjoy most? Why did you choose that/those activitie(s)?
These are questions from the book/journal, A Father’s Legacy: Your Life Story In Your Own Words by J. Countryman, a division of Thomas Nelson, Inc.
Let me know how you’re doing. I pray many men are taking me up on this challenge. This is a long journey. We are taking it in bite-size chunks so that you can fit it in to your schedules. No matter when you start with us, you can always come back to DadPad and get the questions you missed or just pick up the book/journal and do it on your own. But, it’s always more fun doing it together.
So, share this with your Twitter followers and Facebook friends. Challenge them to join us. Then, we can compare notes, encourage each other and at the end of the year celebrate together!
