I hope you are enjoying a great Father’s Day month – my favorite month of the year. I was blessed to spend the first week with my daughter leading the Father-Daughter Hiking Adventure and the second week with my son leading the Father-Son Backpacking Adventure, both in SW Colorado’s Weminuche Wilderness. While it is a local call to God from Texas, it sure feels like you are closer to Him in the mountains of Colorado!

Both of these trips were a week long and it was interesting to watch dads, daughters and sons decompress as we tuned out noise of the world – no cell service, no television, no radio, and tuned in to Christ. Discussions were real, laughter was genuine and relationships were strengthened. Is good to unplug from the world for a week!

Tips for unplugging:

  1. Leave office work at the office.
  2. Designate specific “no technology” time in the home, especially around the dinner table.
  3. Leave cell phones in the car, or at home when dating your daughter or spending time with your son.
  4. Schedule periodic weekend retreats with a focus on moving to new levels of relationship with your children and with the Father.
  5. Join us in Colorado August 3 – 9 for another father-daughter trip this year or commit to a 2015 trip.

As you tune out the noise of the world and tune in to Christ and family, you will be a hero in their eyes.
