Loving sons does not sound as sweet as loving daughters but sons need love from dad too. While some men had exemplary dads that expressed their love often through words of affirmation and encouragement, others have never experienced the love of a father. Most of us fall somewhere between. The example you grew up under may not be the one to emulate.

There can be no blame put on dads or father-figures that ...read on

“Up-hug Daddy!” It was not a request. It was a demand. And if dad was carrying anything as he walked through the door, he knew to put it down quickly so he could pick his daughter up and hug her as she expected to be hugged. It was all arms and legs wrapped around daddy in celebration that he was home.

As a dad of a daughter, I can attest that it is a glimpse of God’s glory to ...read on

When the dad realized he had crossed the line to anger when disciplining his son for a misdeed, he was busted. In a study for dads in his church just the week prior, the instructor said that dads must not discipline kids in anger. The discipline is in vain if self-discipline is lost. In crossing the line to anger, he had failed at exhibiting self-discipline.

The dad took a knee, confessed that he was ...read on

What name is given this child? That is typically a question from the administrators at the hospital as they process a birth certificate. It is also asked when the child is baptized. The first provides connection to an earthly family. The second provides connection to the Lord and a Heavenly family.

In his Truth for Life devotional, Alistair Begg writes, “In some cultures, the meanings behind names don’t matter much. We choose a name because ...read on

What will be the legacy of the present generation of dads? How will the kids of today speak of the leadership in their homes and the influence of their parents? Are you engaged as a dad and providing the spiritual leadership young people need to navigate through the cultural influences being faced?

Today’s culture is stirring up confusion around the most basic ...read on

Are you the man, husband and father the next generation needs to see? Is there a standard of reference that you are working to emulate as the leader in your home? Or is the present-day culture having more of an influence than you would like to admit, encouraging a ‘go along to get along’ mentality?

Spiritual leadership is happening in every home. The question is ...read on

When a father and son took on a project to get a 1957 Ford F-250 running, they got busy doing what they knew how to do. A good pressure washing was the first step as it had been sitting in a barn for over 30-years. Then they dropped the oil pan, replaced gaskets and rebuilt the carburetor. For young dads, the carburetor preceded fuel-injection.

Phase 2 of the project called for ...read on

Neither before nor after Josiah was there a king like him who turned to the Lord as he did – with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength, in accordance with all the Law of Moses – 2Kings 23:25. Wow! No king - not David, Solomon, or any other king after him, turned to the Lord as Josiah did.

The reign of Josiah is a text book example of ...read on

How has your year been? I think it healthy to spend time reflecting on the high points of the past year, what I call “glimpses of God’s glory.” A late-summer getaway with my bride was certainly a high point for us. Time with grown kids on summer adventures, time with granddaughters and the birth of our first grandson were also wonderful high points.

At Faithful Fathering, the high points are always tied to ...read on

Is it possible to have peace on earth? Peace is defined as “freedom from disturbance; tranquility,” per Webster’s dictionary. I guess we could have our ear buds in, or noise-cancelling headphones on, and be oblivious to the world around us. We would be undisturbed and tranquil, even peaceful, for a little while.

In this final week of Advent, the candle lit reflects the ...read on
