Is there anything we can learn that is good from the relationship between Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus that we can take with us as fathers? I think there is one thing, an important thing we can take from all that…that’s what I share in this DadPad blog post.
No matter the task, it really has much less to do with my “passion” but much more about my “willingness” to do what needs to be done since there is no one else that can do what I can do in my family as a father.
They say dogs are man’s best friend. Mainly because dogs always make you feel special. Ours was no different. Ginger was a great dog and saying good-bye to her today was so much more difficult than I ever thought it would be.
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!
What legacy are you leaving your kids. First, you are leaving the one your living. But there’s a story buried in each of us that our children need to hear about too. It’s what makes us what we are and part of leaving them with a fathers legacy. Join us in this project to share your life with your children (and maybe finding a bit about yourself in the process).
Matt Chandler shares some great words for dads in this excerpt of a sermon he gave at The Village Church, Treasures in Heaven. You’re kids will remember what you give them to remember–if nothing then that’s what they’ll remember of you.
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.
What you do in your home is being recorded. No, this is not a post about outsiders using cameras to invade your privacy. But, there are people you know watching your every move and it sets the course for their lives.
