On this episode of the DadPOD, a podcast for men, we discuss some of the challenges he faces as a young father raising children in an increasingly sexually permissive culture. I also asked him about how he intends on raising his children to be aware of the world and the traps but yet not have to get deeply rooted in it’s ways. Raising kids with integrity in this culture is a challenge.
DadPOD Episode 007: Show Notes In light of the horrible events of the last few weeks in the Boston bombings and the age of the alleged suspects of the bombings, it’s common to wonder what is going on in the minds of our youth these days. Though the seemingly underlying issue behind the bombings is […]
Family. Just the mention of that word will elicit warm, fond and joyful memories and thoughts or anger and pain. There is no other word which has that kind of effect on our soul. Family. It’s where we are shaped and our earliest memories of life are deposited into our development bank account. The impact of those early days on how we developed later in life is significant. This is why the kinds of questions that we will answer in this weeks Leaving Your Legacy journal will either be fondly recalled or hard to bring to the surface of our minds.
How are you leaving your mark on your family or as a man to your family? For most of us we’ll just be a memory. But, if you join DadPad on this adventure, you’ll have something that will be more than a memory you can leave your family when you are no longer here!
When did you first learn about sex and who told you? Don’t answer that here! This was one of last weeks questions on DadPad’s Leaving Your Legacy project. Want to leave more than a memory to your children? Join us on this project to leave more of ourselves to our family.
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.
I’m not given to hyperbole much. I don’t like the grandiose marketing pitch, the over the top production or the multisyllabic words meant to express an extreme affection for asomething, i.e., Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. But, as I watched Session 9 of the Stepping Up™ Video Study I was extremely moved by two questions that Rob Rienow […]
Ever been through a spell when all creative juice flowed out a back door and didn’t tell you it was leaving? That’s kind of how it’s been for me on the DadPad lately. Partly, because I write for a couple of other blog clients I give them my better ideas (or at least the ones […]
Discipline. The same root word is also found in the word Disciple. In other words, there is a similarity between growing in maturity (in this case as a Christian) and being disciplined. I can’t think of many who like the word, discipline. To be honest, in certain things, I’m not very disciplined. It’s something I’m continually working on in various aspects of my life.

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 […]
