What will you leave your children? I’m not referring to money. I’m more concerned about the father’s legacy you’ll be leaving them. Join us in this great project that will help you leave something more than a memory to your children!
For too many today is just another day, another Friday, another Good Friday. No more, No less. But I know that because of Good Friday, every day has meaning. That’s what I know.
What do your children know about you as a kid, what did you do when you were their age? Join us on the journey to leave a legacy of our lives to our children, before we are just a memory. Time to leave a memory that matters.
What will you leave your children when you leave this earth? Will it really matter? Solomon feared leaving riches to foolish heirs. Can you really leave something more important than money? How about a piece of yourself? Join the DadPad and start a project that will conclude with you leaving something much more valuable than money or material things.
How well did you know your dad? What did he do when he was a kid? What games did he play? What kind of music did he like? If you’re like me, you probably don’t know those questions or didn’t know them until you started asking him later in life. What do you kids know about you? This is a chance to leave them a lasting legacy of the man you are, past, present and future. Join DadPad in this Legacy leaving challenge.

Well, we've had some great response to the last blog entry announcing a giveaway of Dennis Rainey's book, Interviewing Your Daughters Date. As daughters have now gone back to school, many entering High School or College for the first time, this is a great resource for Dads to use to help us navigate this very […]
We all want to be an “olympic dad”. And, we all remember (or most of us do) the image of Derek Redmond rounding the track early in his 400m race back in 1992 and pulling up due to a severe hamstring injury. The story that unfolded showed us what an olympic dad looked like. As […]
Obedience or Exasperation…so which is it? Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. (Colossians 3:20, 21 ESV) This verse has often been a guardrail in my parenting. My lovely wife has brought it to my attention more than once as well. […]
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, (Ephesians 4:26 ESV) No, the 2 words are not the first two words of this verse. This is an aspiration verse. Something to aspire to and a verse to align us correctly. It’s one that if heeded, will yield […]
